The Valour is connected to iDS, Android and Pebble through Bluetooth and tracks rider statistics in real-time including the route, distance, speed, and time. Valour's LED handlebar indicators are connected to the smartphone's GPS navigation and give riders turn-by-turn directions, reducing the distraction of having to look at a smartphone screen. The Valour also includes, the industry's first sensor-driven blind spot detector, which alerts the rider of any object in their blind spot through haptic feedback in the handle bar grips.

And now, Vanhawks brings on Mark Remennik as Chief of Design. Mark has over 6 years of experience working on groundbreaking industry innovations at Cervelo. He plans to work with the team to bring cutting edge designs for the future of urban transportation. Mark has helped design some of the worlds most advanced bicycles at Cervelo Cycles.
