About

The Bycle App will collect, display, and combine all elements of the ride in a shareable video. The app integrates fitness data, route mapping, and video recording from the ride. Browse your videos by selecting points along the map of your route, rather than fast-forwarding and rewinding through a trivial timeline. A rider can go back to relive every moment of the route, minute by minute, mile by mile, calorie by calorie - and share this thrill with riders. 

For our water-resistant mounts, we added a unique element: the prism lens. 

Before, you had to choose between using the phone as a recording device - making the screen hardly visible to the rider - or as a bike computer, which obstructed the camera's angle. Now, the camera aims forward instead of facing down, thanks to the prism lens. This allows the screen to still face the user and provide real-time results via the app. Bycle users can comfortably record footage of the road ahead (as an alternative to unappealing footage of the ground) while safely using the phone as a navigation system and fitness data tracker.

By incorporating a prism lens in front of the camera, the mount enables new possibilities. The lens will allow a forward-looking point-of-view while the phone screen faces you. This way you could look comfortably at your phone for directions while it records video in the background. Think of that one science experiment you did in high school to imitate a submarine.

Take a look for yourself! Average mounts aim the phone camera downward, recording the ground. The prism lens redirects light to record what’s ahead instead. 

We made sure our mount would protect your phone against the elements. That’s why we made it water-resistant. Whether it’s you’re riding through a light drizzle or caught in a downpour, we’ll our mount will keep your phone safe and dry.

Our mounts fit on almost all bars. We made a 31.8mm diameter mount to fit on most standard handle bars. We also included an inner padding, so it could fit better on 25.4 mm and 26 mm bars.

We have been working hard on making the mount fit ideal for iPhone, and we will work on other smartphones later this year. For the purpose of this campaign, we focused on making our mounts compatible with the iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6S and 6S Plus. If you have another smartphone, support us with any of our “Thank You” Pledges and we will update you with new releases and early access to other pre-orders. 

_______________________

Bycle will be the first bike mount to use your phone’s GPS and video recording features, all at the same time. We achieved this by creating a unique phone app and a water-resistant mount with a prism lens placed right in front of the camera.

Our app shoots video footage of your ride, maps your route, and collects personal fitness data. Once the ride is over, it merges all of it together to create interactive, shareable content.

Our prism lens is designed to aim your phone’s camera straight ahead while keeping the screen aimed at you. Making for captivating POV video recording.

Risks and challenges

Production:
This project has been running for a few years. We have discussed with our manufacturers about their production capacities and everything is good to go.

Our prototype is still not on the final stage, and as you saw, it looks pretty damn awesome and ready to roll. But we know there is always a margin of error, and when mass producing a piece as complex as this, we might encounter defects, but it is alright, we have your back. If you have any issues with your mount we'll replace it without hesitations and no additional cost what so ever.

Deliveries:
Everything is set up, as soon as those 30 days are over, and the funding is successfully reached a month later we will start producing those beautiful mounts. Now, if our goal is exceeded, well do not worry either, we have it covered. We have contacted distributors and manufacturers that are used to mass production, shipment, and deliveries, to support us if this scenario becomes a reality.
