17 Innovative Bike Sensors

From Health-Centric Road Bikes to Intuitive Cyclist Alerts

— April 3, 2016 — Eco
From health-centric road bikes that measure the rider's fitness level to intuitive cyclist alters that warn when traffic is approaching, there is a clear demand for new and innovative bike sensors. Indeed, a growing number of companies are using the smart technology to make cycling a safer and more enjoyable experience for consumers.

One of the most interesting ways that bike manufacturers are using sensors is for the purpose of tracking data. This data not only helps cyclists log their rides, but it can also be used as a powerful fitness tool. For example, the QiCycle R1 bike features built-in sensors that are directly linked to an accompanying health app. Similarly, the Brim Brothers Zone DPMX cycling power meter can be used to track power output for high-intensity training.

Beyond the fitness applications, bike sensors are also useful for various safety purposes. For example, both the C3FT sonar device and the Backtracker system use sensors to ensures that cars maintain a safe distance from cyclists. Similarly, the See.Sense Icon uses sensors to determine the best way to increase a cyclist's visibility at night.
