About

 
  • Introduction

FAST is a tailor-made, smart taillight for cyclists. It can be fixed at the back end of the bicycle. There are 8 RGB LED light bulbs. You can choose the color pattern of FAST through FAST‘s app. It has an acceleration sensor which captures the real-time status of the bike. If accidents occur, FAST can switch to SOS mode, calling for help automatically. Moreover, it can inform your Emergency Contact so that you can get timely assistance. By tracking motion status and with its Bluetooth, FAST can track whether the bike moves or falls toward a particular direction. In addition, within 20 meters, you bikes are not likely to be stolen by others.

We hope FAST will bring you a safer, smarter and awesome experience. 

  • Emergency Contact
Cycling is not a risk-free activity. Accidents may occur at any moment. With acceleration sensor and motion status tracking, we can ensure that you will get immediate help when emergency occurs. Firstly, great collision or sharp turns will change the lighting mode into SOS mode so that you can be spotted in the dark. Meanwhile, FAST will update and forward status info in the taillight to emergency contact, letting them know that there is an emergency and you need their help.

To trigger SOS function, users need to input emergency contact’s info in the FAST app.

  • ISO-Auto

When the ISO-Auto function is activated, the photosensitive sensor will detect its surroundings. Once the bike enters a dim place, FAST will light up automatically.

  • Anti-theft

Anti-theft alarm is a big headache. You may want to buy some stuff or grab a cup of Starbuck coffee. With our design, you don’t have to lock your bike. By pressing “Lock” button on the FAST app, you can park your bike without any worry. Its Bluetooth and acceleration sensor can get your mobile phone connected. If anyone try to steal your bike, FAST will give alarming sound.

  • Customise full color LEDs

Conventional taillight being too boring? Here comes with the entertaining Customized full color LEDs. There are 8 RGB LED light bulbs on the taillight. You can choose your favorite color and mode through FAST app! One thing worth of mention is that FAST has Morse code mode. You can put in your name, your girl friend’s or your pet’s name and the FAST can turn them into Morse mode and let them shine. How splendid it is!

Note: Even though you are in the countries where the law dictates a tail light must be red, you can customise the color the government allows.

  •  A cute night-light

Let FAST be your cute night-light. This is not impossible! We extend this function on the taillight together with alarm clock. Users can set the alarm clock and when time is up, app will activate the taillight to shine. Think about it, you set the alarm clock and when the set time is up, with the gradual ringing of alarming and the shining taillight, wouldn’t that be fantastic?

  • FAST’s APP

A simple and easy user experience is our pursue. FAST's app interface is the demonstration of our efforts. You can preview the flashing mode, check your movement status, set control parameters with just a click on the app.

  • Design

How to fix FAST taillight firmly at the back end of your bike? This is a tough issue. In fact, FACT can be fixed firmly on your bike with carapace and it can be fixed on all types of bikes.

With optical coating and a geometric surface, FAST still stands out even when the light is off. In order to protect the electric parts inside, we sealed all the gaps with rubber to make FAST water-proof and dust-protected.
