 Cycliq is the technological innovator behind Fly6. Successfully funded on Kickstarter in March 2014, Fly6 is a HD camera and light for the rear of your bike; it watches your back so you can enjoy the ride ahead. Backers for Fly6 received their rewards on time and are now using them all over the world, capturing memorable moments such as these:

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.    

We worked tirelessly with our new design team; with our ideas and their expertise, a thorough design brief was developed. Using the initial design for Fly12, our fabrication team was able to supply us with a physical working prototype.

Initial Concept Designs

With the first prototype, we were able to road test the functionality of several features and consider the variety of possibilities that we could pack into this ultra-modern unit. The insight that rigorous testing of the prototype provided was invaluable in finalizing our design and enabled us to graduate to the next phase of prototyping.

The name Fly12 is a combination of two sayings: "a fly on the wall" and the military term for in front of you, "your 12 o'clock". It is watching out for your front while Fly6 has got your back!

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.

Fly12 is made by cyclists for cyclists. It has features and functions that we need. It is not a half solution that only works some of the time!

Battery life is a constant consideration when dealing with technology. As cyclists we understand the need for a product with long, reliable battery life, and the ability to withstand even the longest commute. We have worked hard to make all of these needs a reality, and we are happy to announce that Fly12 has got you covered.

  • Up to 10 hours of battery while using device in camera only mode
  • Up to 6 hours with camera and flashing light
  • Up to 2 hours with camera and 400 lumen constant mode
  • Protected with nano technology to withstand any wet weather
  • Records in a constant loop so you don't need to worry about formatting your device each time you use it

The Cycliq companion app will be able to connect to your Fly12 after your ride, allowing you to interact in many ways:

  • Add Strava ride metrics over your video
  • Review your ride footage 
  • Add '3-foot' tramlines to the footage 
  • Save 15 second snippets and share to Instagram and other social media 
  • Automatic synchronisation of time & date settings
  • Control device settings from your phone

 3ft Tramline Feature

  • Set your alarm from your phone
  • Movement will trigger Fly12 alarm, light and video Visual and audible alert sent to your phone
  • 100ft range

Included in your Fly12 box is everything you need to set up and go riding.

The versatility of Fly12's mounting system allows you to mount it above or below your handle bars, empowering the rider to decide where the unit is best suited. Fly12 has a GoPro mounting system as well as the supplied bicycle handlebar mount. In addition, a specialized mount included is compatible with Garmin 1/4 turn and standard 1/4 inch thread for tripods making it for cyclists, a universally adaptable all-in-one front light and HD camera solution.

"I thought the Fly6 was the best thing to happen to promote safer cycling and now it is set to pair up with Fly12. The Fly6 is a must have on our busy roads and the images it produces are amazing. Can't recommend it highly enough to everyone."

"Like all cyclists,  I am concerned about my safety when I am on the road. The Fly6 didn't stop my accident from happening, but it did provide the evidence to police and the insurance company that showed the driver was clearly negligent when two of my mates and I were hit from behind by a car traveling at 80kph"

"I had a very bad accident on my bike as I was hit by a car while commuting, but my Fly6 recorded the whole event and instead of me paying thousands of dollars, the police saw the footage, charged the driver and his insurance covered all my expenses. I never ride without my Fly6 and soon with Fly12"

Cycliq has sold Fly6 to over 30 countries and is now distributed throughout the US, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and more.

Risks and challenges

Risks are often the unknown. However, Cycliq has successfully delivered Fly6 to the market from a similar Kickstarter beginning. We have learned a great deal from that experience and are now confident we can bring you Fly12 within our nominated time-frames.

With all of our experience, there will still be timing risks due to third party suppliers and manufacturers. Luckily, we have minimized these risks by pre-arranging costs, time frames, and design elements. We believe we can deliver the rewards to our backers on time!

In addition mounting it on the helmet will not produce as stable footage as when the device is correctly mounted to the bike. Fly12 is compatible with a multitude of mounting configurations currently on the market.
