Cycliq, an Australian company born on Kickstarter, best known for its combination bicycle light and action/safety cameras, have now added two new models to the range. These are the rear-facing Fly6 CE (Connected Edition), and the front Fly12 CE, both being lighter, brighter, and smarter than the existing Fly6 and Fly12.
The rear-facing Fly6 CE (US$179/AU$259/£169) is now just 110g, 17g lighter than the existing Fly6. It’s maximum light output is claimed at 100 lumens (up from 30 lumens), and battery life is quoted at up to seven hours.
With a claimed eight hour battery life, the 600-lumen front-facing Fly12 CE (US$279/AU$399/£255) drops 49g, for a unit weight of just 195g.
Both the Fly6 CE and Fly12 CE will capture footage at 1080p/60FPS with audio and each feature a 135° wide angle lens (current Fly6 offers a 100° field of view lens). A new ‘6-axis’ stabilisation feature is in both units for smoother footage. And a new ? turn Quick Release mounting system is found on both devices, too.
The CE models feature Garmin compatibility via ANT+ and Bluetooth connectivity to the Cycliq Plus app. The app connectivity was a feature available with the existing Fly12, and allows device setting control and immediate playback.
They’re due for sale from the 30th of November. Visit cycliq.com for more information.
