During the Taipei Cycle pre-show media tour from 21st May to 25th May,  Cycling Malaysia had an opportunity to learn about some of the revolutionary bicycle products presented by 16 bicycle manufacturers from the Kingdom of Bicycle – Taiwan, at Iron Hill Cycling Sport Village Taichung.

This year, the bicycle manufacturers have put a lot of focus on the electric devices, from bicycle computer, chain, dropper, pedals, cycling application to so much more.

1. CYQLO

Taipei based startup CYQLO enters the market with a feature-rich device that goes one step further by incorporating 7 accessories in just one device: Bike navigation, cycle computer, camera, anti-theft alarm, frontal light, bell and power bank.

CYQLO addresses the current needs of an increasing number of bike commuters, bicycle travelers, bike couriers, and cyclists. CYQLO offers an intuitive and easy way to lead cyclists to their destination. The device combines a light ring with turn-by-turn signals, contextual sounds and a LED display that indicates the distance to the next turn. It improves significantly the navigation experience and reduces misunderstandings during the journey.

CYQLO automatically locks on the handlebar and the user can easily unlock it using the CYQLO app. Every time someone tampers with the bike, CYQLO will trigger a 100 dB alarm and the CYQLO camera will send a real-time video to the user’s smartphone.

The built-in power bank will also keep cyclists’ devices fully charged, letting them stay in touch with their rides. At the same time, they can keep their smartphones safe in their pockets. CYQLO will notify them of incoming calls or SMS with a simple blue LED light on the light ring.

CYQLO pairs by Bluetooth with the CYQLO app, available on iOS and Android. The app also offers some critical functions. Cyclists can design their routes, include stops in different locations, and attach pictures as well as notes. After they save their rides, they can share them with other CYQLO app users. Bike travelers will enjoy the QR code function by scanning any QR code route and start to navigate it.

CYQLO will be formally introduced at Taipei Cycle Week 2018, and Taipei Cycle d&i Awards 2018. The market launch of CYQLO is expected at the ends of this year.

3. CHOSEN Hub

CHOSEN’s 150-teeth hub, with its unique bite structure, allows for tighter rotation and smoother movement. Another silent hub, with one-way bearings inside, has no resistance after structure improvement, and which achieves a silent goal, and has better traveling efficiency.

 

4. X12 Speed Series Chain

KMC’s all-new 12-speed chain features a comprehensive X-Bridge on the inner wall of all chain plates; the narrow design adapts precisely to the limited gear space while improving functionality in spite of extreme cross chaining inherent to 1x drivetrains.

Optimal asymmetrical chamfering is strategically placed on outer plates to avoid chain and cassette teeth interference. The upgrade bevel chamfering on inside edges of all plates enable a smooth gear tooth insertion and an efficient interface between chain and cog. Riding safety and stability is drastically improved as a result.

Pairing elegant gold outer plates with jet black inner plates, the X12 chain delivers a unique aesthetic on top of functionality. Built with industry leading technology, KMC’s newly debuted X12 chain has already won the 2017 Taipei Cycle d&i awards and set a new milestone for the art of bicycle chains.

 

5. LEV Ci 272/LEV Integra 272

KS (KS Suspension) further expands dropper post usability by offering LEV Integra 272 in 120mm travel option. LEV Integra 272 utilizes an updated hydraulic cartridge with refined piston design and air-to-oil volume ratio for optimal actuation in a 27.2mm diameter form factor.

A two-bolt micro-adjust head holds the saddle securely at nearly any desired angle while the hard anodized aluminum alloy stanchion is durable and resistant to deflection. KS’ patented one-way roller clutch bearing combined with updated brass keyways keep rotational and lateral free-play to an absolute minimum.

LEV Integra 272 comes standard with the KGSL Alloy remote which is compatible with ODI Lock-On grip systems but also available with optional Southpaw dedicated 1x remote lever.

6. Rove (Neco3-1+Neco4+Rectifier)

Rove Contains Neco3-1 (Intelligent Portable Charger) and Neco4 (Dynamo Hub Generator) as well as Electric Rectifier.

The traditional power generation hub on the market uses a single output, like output to a lamp or electronic derailleur.

Neco’s Rove Dynamo Power Generator converts its alternating current to current via a rectifier and can store electricity to  Neco3-1(Intelligent Portable Charger). Through Neco3-1 output, which can be used to charge any USB electronic device.

In the past, bicycles were the only tool for transportation. Nowadays, bicycles often encounter problems of insufficient electric endurance when they are on leisure and long-distance travel, or when E-bike riders use electronic products.

With Rove Dynamo Hub power Generator – UPS system, you don’t need to worry about this problem.

 

7. Neco5 Manual Pedals

Neco5 Manual Pedals decrease the volume of storing bike. When the bicycle stored in the car, the space for storage becomes smaller, and even the collision problem occurs because of the pedal. However, if the pedal can be dismantled, the above problem can be solved, With neco5 manual pedal, it can easily be dismantled and solved the problem.

Silicone Rubber has outstanding weather resistance properties for the product so that it can bear extreme environment condition for a long time and no aging situation occurs. Also, it has much lower surface energy such as Teflon. It means chemical or stain is not easy to react with silicone rubber surface so that it remains in a clear condition.
