Wearing protective gear will never again have to be your only security strategy. The B-Link will detect a possible accident and begin a countdown. If you are unable to clear the alert before the countdown runs out, it will automatically send a text, with your exact location, as well as notify your preset emergency contact (such as Mom) that there is an incident that needs attention.
Especially designed with concerned parents and loved ones in mind, B-Link will be able to send a friendly alert to your contact once you have arrived at your destination. Enjoy the simple peace of mind of knowing instantly that your child arrived safely to school, that your wife is now at the office, or even check in on a friend who fell behind your group of riders.
AUTOMATIC TURN SIGNALS
One of the coolest features of B-Link is the automatic turn signals. The app will automatically initiate a left or right turn signal before approaching a turn. How does that work? A cyclist can either select an existing route, or navigate a new route.
While navigating to your destinations with the B-Link application, it also tracks your fitness activities and provides a dashboard view of your progress. B-Link tracks your workout details such as duration, distance, pace, speed, and more. You can share your routes with your friends when doing group rides.
The idea for B-Link came to me after a bicycle accident, which thankfully only resulted in a minor concussion and no serious injuries.
With all the technology and safety equipment I had on me, none of it offered any security to me or my loved ones. The accident left me asking a lot of questions. How is it that technology could connect me to anyone in the world at a moment’s notice, but none of the technology I had on me detected that I was in an accident? What if I was in a more serious accident? How long would it have been before my wife found out?
This string of thought resulted in B-Link, the bicycle safety system. B-Link is a front and back light for your bicycle that syncs with the B-Link app. The system includes bicycle lights that consist of powerful LEDs that will make the bicycle visible in day or night. The light has a blinker system that will create more awareness to other cyclists, people, and most importantly, vehicles of your turning intentions. Finally, we added safety features that directly addressed my concerns in the form of an easy-to-use and intuitive app.
