bike safety gadget ICEdot Crash Sensor

ICEdot Crash Sensor

Ride along with the confidence of knowing that if you should get into an accident, you won’t be left to suffer alone. The ICEdot Crash Sensor attaches to the back of your helmet and works with a smartphone app that detects motion, changes in forces and impacts. In the case of an accident, the sensor triggers an alarm that will alert your emergency contacts with GPS details, so you can rest assured that help will be on its way.

The alarm begins with an emergency countdown, which you can switch off if help isn’t actually required. Compatible with iPhone and Android, the device works with low energy Bluetooth, so you won’t wear out your phone battery. This is an especially useful gadget for those who ride at night or out in areas where there may not be many people around to witness an accident and come to your assistance.
