Turn your bike into a smart bike ! The Connected Cycle pedal is the world’s first connected pedal.
It provides a simple solution to bike theft for regular bike users. The bike owner is instantly notified when the bike is moved and able to locate it at anytime. This location capability not only prohibits theft, but also allows the owner to locate where they last parked their bike.
On a daily basis, the pedal automatically records the speed, route, incline, and calories burned on each bike trip. These statistics are sent to the cloud, and made available to users through the Connected Cycle application available on smartphones.
The pedal is self governing and works anywhere in the world, generating its own energy, and using its own Internet connection. There is no need to charge a battery or carry your smartphone during trips because of its unique energy generation system.
EASY TO SET UP
Installation takes less than 2 minutes and doesn’t require mechanical skills, however the pedal can only be removed using the owner’s specially coded key. The pedal is elegantly designed with an aluminium casing.
