Every year, hundreds of expert cyclists and bicycle lovers have accidents caused by road hazards, by riding into the sun, tiredness, motorists looking at their phones, or by the thousands of other distractions that can occur in real time.
Byxee is a smart safety device that detects hazards on the road to alert the cyclist before they collide.
Its advanced video system checks the road up to 80 feet (25m) ahead. It detects road surface irregularities from about 3 inches (7cm) in size, such as potholes, gratings, bumps, patches, and other hazards. Unexpected moving obstacles can also be detected-for example, cats, balls, a pedestrian, a car door and so on.
Byxee alerts the cyclist beforehand: its unique acoustic signal will alert the rider before she encounters the hazard, so she can make proactive riding adjustments in real time to keep both the bike and herself away from danger.
Byxee is designed to be a reliable third eye for cyclists on the road. Byxee will never get tired, it will never become distracted. Its purpose is to scan the road ahead at all time.
Byxee is for any rider and for any bike handlebars. Byxee has 28 sensitivity settings for any speed and ride style.
