SF Moto's insight:

If you're looking for comfortable, practical, and well-made riding shoes, you have to try out the AXO 5to9's.

SF Moto's insight:

The biggest differentiator between Nuviz's Ride:HUD and the technology being developed by LiveMap, Reevu, and Skully is that Ride:HUD is designed to be added to any full-face helmet, whereas other companies are creating helmets with built-in technology.


Nuviz is raising production funds for Ride:HUD through Kickstarter until Monday January 6, 2014. As of December 2, 2013, Nuviz has raised $41,707 of their $185,000 goal.
