Coros Fron­tier smart hel­met

Not only does it keep you safe, this clever hel­met also has built-in Blue­tooth wire­less for talk­ing to your smart­phone. A wind-re­sis­tant mi­cro­phone and bone-con­duc­tion speak­ers of­fer per­fect sound while still let­ting you hear the world around you. Now you can make hands-free calls, play mu­sic and lis­ten to GPS di­rec­tions or prompts from your fit­ness app. There’s even a tiny wire­less re­mote con­trol that clips to your han­dle­bars. $249 iico.com.au

Po­lar M450 Spe­cial Edi­tion GPS bike com­puter

Like a fit­ness band that straps onto your bike, this GPS bike com­puter lets you track your rides – even your al­ti­tude – as well as man­age your fit­ness reg­i­men and mon­i­tor your vi­tals as you push your­self to the limit. The Spe­cial Edi­tion comes with Po­lar’s H7 heart-rate mon­i­tor and the M450 can talk to a wide range of third- party Blue­tooth sen­sors to track your heart rate, speed, cadence and power. $369 po­lar.com

Proper M Lock Bike Mount

Rather than keep­ing your phone out of sight in your pocket, the M Lock Bike Mount lets you at­tach an iPhone to your bike’s stem so it’s al­ways front and cen­tre. Pre­ci­sion-ma­chined from solid alu­minium, the mount is light­weight and durable, re­ly­ing on neodymium mag­nets to at­tach the M Lock iPhone case ($30) in land­scape or por­trait mode. You can ad­just the an­gle of the mount to min­imise glare, de­pend­ing on whether you’re up out of the sad­dle or sit­ting back on an easy ride. $60 stu­dio­proper.com.au
