Road bike startup SpeedX is returning to the crowdfunding well to get the company’s second smart bicycle off the ground. It’s called the SpeedX Unicorn, and it’s a computer-equipped bike that is built for a super smooth ride and costs $3,199.
How do you ensure a smooth ride? You build a frame that does this:
The Unicorn isn’t just about eliminating bumps, though. It’s got a 2.2-inch touchscreen that pulls data from an integrated power meter, allowing riders to accurately measure things like watt output without buying any third-party devices.
Of course, I’m guessing if you are a serious cyclist then you might have an affinity for a particular third-party bike computer or power meter. I’m also guessing that many readers might not want or need a bike this fancy or expensive. But the Unicorn is a prime example of why gadgets aren’t dead. Who’d have ever thought we’d see multiple Android-powered bikes in the span of just a few months?
