The Speednite Team

 

Actually Speednite team is really a family, we also are cyclists and love to do cycling together. From our cycling experiences, we find that the traditional bicycle lighting devices which are not very helpful at night, so we came up with Speednite.

And we put our strengths together for making Speednite over a year, and then started to promote marketing before coming to Kickstarter.

We hope Speednite can be succesful in Kickstarter and brought to life, and to make cycling to be more safe, smart and fun. Thank you very much!

R & D in Hong Kong

Timeline

Risks and challenges

We are making a very powerful bike stem which includes many functions and features all into a single stem body. The first challenge is how to keep the stem size and weight to be optimum. And at the same, we need to make the stem structure which are enough hard and strong.
So we need to do many testings, such as hardness test, impact test, bending test, MPI inspection, etc. to make sure Speednite is safety for everyone.

And also, Speednite will be planned to meet all bicycle safety standards and consumer electronic standards to make sure we can sell and distribute to all countries.

Speednite includes many technologies, such as electronic, mechanical and software application. Although our team member are technical guys, we need to consult and work with other factory consultants to make sure Speednite is working and can be manufactured in mass production, also can meet all the delivery dates to all backers.
