Cyclists looking for a compact and convenient way to record video footage while on their bike, as well as provide illumination on the road ahead, may be interested in a new bike accessory called the Fly12.
The Fly12 bike camera offers the ability to record 1080p footage as well as providing 400-lumens of illumination and has this week launched over on the Kickstarter crowdfunding website with the aim of raising $245,000 and has already blasted past this goal.
Andrew Hagen and Kingsley Fiegert are responsible for creating the Fly12 and are part of Cycliq the technological innovator behind Fly6 that also successfully launched over on Kickstarter. The team explains :
“We compiled all of the best bits of Fly6, added a multitude of new technology and infused them to create a device that the cycling community has been long waiting for! We started by brainstorming about what we believed would be the optimum cycling accessory. The goal was simple: we needed a bright light and a full HD camera.
Fly12 is a 1080p HD camera and 400 lumen front light in one compact and smart unit. Featuring a sleek minimalist design with a battery run-time of up to 10 hours on camera only mode or 6 hours with camera on and in flashing light mode, Fly12 can capture and store your ride in case anything happens.
Want to share something that happened on your ride with your buddies? Connect your Fly12 with your smartphone app where you can review the footage, save it, and even share it on social media!
Cycling is an amazing experience, and there are so many reasons we love it! We cycle for transportation, for fun, for exercise, and for sport. Much riding these days means sharing the road with other vehicles. We cycle in all conditions and at all times of the day, and sometimes you need to be able to rely on a good quality light source to help guide you home safely and make you visible to pedestrians and vehicles.
Sometimes things happen on the road that you wish had been captured on camera. Sometimes you have an amazing experience while cycling and want to share it with your friends – and now you can, with one sleek and efficient device.”
