Smart pedals boost your bike's IQ

LAS VEGAS — Smart is everywhere. Smartwatches. Smartphones. Smart homes. The trend of giving just about every low-tech device in our lives a high-tech makeover is stronger than ever.

Now it's time for our bike pedals to line up for their IQ boost.

French startup Connected Cycle unveiled its smart pedals on Sunday at CES. The pedals automatically record how fast you're going, as well as route, elevation and calories burned.

There's GPS technology built into the pedals itself, as well as tiny sensors that keep track of everything you're doing.

The smart pedals connect to an app, which plots where you've traveled. It also alerts you when the bike is on the move and you're not the one on it — a feature intended to help cut down on bike theft, or at least track the thief.

The smart bike concept isn't entirely new. Last year, a Kickstarter campaign for the Vanhawks Valour smart bike brought in more than $800,000 in funds, suggesting that there is plenty of demand for bringing smart tech to bikes. Although the Valour's pedals weren't connected to the internet, it offered GPS tracking in its handlebars to help bikers keep their eyes on the road.

Connected Cycle's smart pedals, by contrast, mean you can keep the bike you have — and just swap out the pedals to make it smart.

The price has not yet been announced, but the startup told Mashable its pedals will hit the metal in the second quarter of 2015.
