ShredMate – tracks mountain bike jumps, g-forces and trails!
ShredMate is the first bike computer developed purely for mountain biking. It combines a motion sensor with specialized algorithms to track your speed, jumps and g-forces on the trail. We have raised 50% of our Kickstarter campaign target in less than 3 days and received the ‘Project We Love’ badge, but we still need your help to make ShredMate a reality.
ShredMate combines a motion sensor with our specialized algorithms to give you exciting new information about your riding. The small sensor attaches to your fork and connects directly to your smartphone via Bluetooth to track your ride on the ShredMate app, so that you can view your:
• JUMPS – ShredMate locates and measures your jump air time – and landing g force. By training to reduce your landing g force you will improve your flow on the trail.
• G FORCE – ShredMate detects peak g forces – tight corners, g-outs (and even the odd crash!). ShredMate displays these g forces on the map.
• ROUGH TRAILS – ShredMate automatically detects when you’re riding a rough trail. ShredMate lets you view each trail separately, so that you can view detailed telemetry for the sections of your ride that matter the most.
• SPEED – ShredMate shows your route as a trace that changes colour depending on how fast you go. Red for fast, green for slow.
Chris, ShredMate founder and developer said “A couple of years ago I was teaching myself how to jump on a mountain bike, but found no way of tracking my progress. We decided to fix this problem by developing ShredMate. Once we added the motion sensor to track jumps, it became clear we could do so much more. Through careful optimization of our algorithms, ShredMate can track g-forces, detect individual trails and measure your jump landing g-force. By training to reduce your jump landing g-force, ShredMate can help improve your riding.”
ShredMate is available now on Kickstarter for just £60 ($77 USD, $97 CAD) https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1333727138/sh redmate-tracks-mountain-bike-jumps-g-forces-and
OVER 6 MONTHS BATTERY LIFE
Through careful optimisation of our electronics and software, ShredMate runs off of a coin cell for over 6 months. When the battery runs out, simply unscrew the battery compartment and pop in a new battery at home.
Simply cable tie the sensor to your forks and attach the wheel magnet – we supply everything you need. The ShredMate app is a free download and compatible with Android and iPhone. After installing the app on your phone and a simple setup, you are good to ride.
