Cyclists searching for a convenient way to protect their bike from theft may be interested in a new bicycle alarm called the Stingray which has been created by Bouh based in the UK.
Combining both a smart bike alarm together with a handy bicycle light the system has been designed to be attached to your handlebars and is equipped with a 120dB siren to alert both you and passers-by that your bike is in trouble.
Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about its design and features, which include a battery that can last 28 days without a recharge.
The development team behind Stingray explain more about its inspiration and technology.
Stingray is a PATENT PENDING front bike light with a built in alarm system. It’s really easy to use, just unplug the torch from the cradle and the alarm system will engage. The alarm uses a motion sensor, so if anyone tries to move with your bike a whopping 120dB siren will go off in their face! Stingray works with your favourite lock, meaning you get a dual layer protection system!
The torch is the key to the cradle – a simple solution that makes using an alarm system seamless for any cyclist. Removing the torch engages the alarm and reconnecting the torch disengages the alarm. A pre-configured panic state causes Stingray to be extra sensitive for the first 5 seconds when armed, meaning if your bike is stolen in person you’ll have a quick way of protecting yourself by bringing attention to the situation.
The alarm cradle is charged via the torch unit, meaning you only have to recharge one device to keep everything powered up. The alarm system can last over 1 month with no need to recharge, keeping your bike safe even when you are not using it. Stingray is fastened to your handlebars using an aluminium metal strap, which is locked in place using the custom key. The flexible design allows it to be attached to any handlebar shape or size, yet the material is almost impossible to cut.
