ICON, an intelligent and connected bike light, connects to smartphones to offer the rider an unrivalled set of features to help enhance and protect their cycling experience.
As with their inaugural light, See.Sense intelligent bike light, the company will launch ICON on the crowd funding platform Kickstarter this week. Building on the success they have achieved since they started in 2013, See Sense is aiming for ICON to take the business to a whole new level.ICON’s clever features include: alerts against potential theft; a crash alert function to immediately alert the cyclist’s nominated contact of a crash as well as reacting to road conditions to make cyclists more visible.
ICON also has the potential to collect data that can be used for smart cities initiatives such as early pothole identification and recording near misses and accidents. The light, designed and built in Northern Ireland, offers councils and municipalities never before seen crowd-sourced data that that will help all users have a safer journey.
Along with customer feedback on their inaugural bike light, the company has applied five years of development and research to build ICON. It’s the only bike light in the world that can react to roundabouts, road-junctions and even to approaching car headlights. ICON has daylight visible level brightness and CREE LED’s with advanced optics to give the rider excellent focus as well as side illumination. All of these features with a superb run-time of more than 15 hours in a lightweight, compact package.
