Full Cycle – Bike Technology

Road cyclists | Shine Lawyers

Technology is continually evolving in every aspect of our lives, and the world of cycling is no different.

Shine Lawyers‘ own Stuart Le Grand talks about some of the handy new devices that could also assist you in the event of an accident.

See the new devices, as televised on Full Cycle, in the video below.

 

“With advances in technology there’s also been big steps forward with road safety equipment. Check out this Fly 6 rear combination light and camera. Now the advantage of that, in the unfortunate event that you are involved in an accident, there’s your evidence right there and then. You can actually replay what happened to you in the accident.

Another feature of this light is, when you turn it on, the light circulates in a clockwise fashion. This tells motorists that they’re being watched, the camera is working. Remember it’s the law to have a warning device on your handlebars. This is a traditional bell and it still works perfectly fine. However if you’re looking for something a bit more stylish and more in line with form and function, check out this new streamlined device here. And when you combine that with the Fly 12 front light, that also operates as a light and camera so you’ve got it covered both from the front and the rear.”
