Bicycle rig lets riders generate electricity when they're on the go.

EcoXGear’s EcoXPower is a one-of-a-kind device that attaches to a bike and uses pedal power to simultaneously light up a headlamp and tail light as well as charge a smartphone. The attachment clamps onto the bike’s front wheel hub with a universal mount. As the rider cycles, electricity is instantly generated.

The device charges a smartphone or GPS device through a USB adapter cable mounted to a water-resistant, touchscreen-friendly case that rests on the handlebars. Riders who want to follow a route or map their stats can easily guide themselves during the ride- without draining their battery. The EcoXPower is available online via the EcoXGear store for $99.99.
