Top 55 Sports Trends in May

From Cycling-Centric Streetwear to All-in-One Gym Systems

— May 25, 2019 — Lifestyle
The May 2019 sports trends cover a wide range of health-focused apps and devices that make it easier to keep track of improvements, athletic apparel and gear that's suited to a variety of different activities, and much more.

For cyclists, there's the Garmin Edge 530 and Edge 830 devices -- which were developed by road cyclists and mountain bikers to offer tracking services and provide incident reports. This allows users to monitor the conditions the popular routes and trails near them, so that they can stay safe and spend more time riding. The devices also come with a messaging system, so that users can chat amongst themselves and provide one another with updates or advice.

Another innovation in the HydroRider Professional AquaBike, an underwater exercise bike that makes cardio more challenging and refreshing. The bike attaches to the bottom of the pool and uses a fixed resistance system that works with the force of the water that surrounds it. This gives serious cyclists the chance to engage more of their body than they might otherwise and switch up their usual routines.
