ShredMate, the first bike computer ever developed specifically for mountain biking, debuts today on Kickstarter. Get in early to secure your stake in this innovative new product! With this new bike computer sensor, you will be able to track your jumps, g-forces and trails.
ShredMate is the first bike computer speed sensor developed purely for mountain biking. The small ShredMate sensor attaches to your forks and connects directly to your smartphone via Bluetooth low energy to track your ride on the ShredMate app. By combining a motion sensor and algorithms, ShredMate gives you exciting new information about your mountain bike riding.
ShredMate tracks and measures your jumps
ShredMate locates, tracks and measures your jump air time – and landing g force. Train to reduce your landing g force! ShredMate helps you become a smoother rider.
ShredMate tracks g forces
ShredMate detects peak g forces – tight corners, g-outs (and even the odd crash!). ShredMate displays these g forces on the map.
ShredMate detects rough trails
ShredMate automatically detects when you’re riding a rough trail. ShredMate lets you view each trail separately, so that you can easily view detailed telemetry for the sections of your ride that matters the most.
Easily see how fast you ride, just look at the map: ShredMate shows your route as a trace that changes color depending on how fast you go. Red for Fast, Green for Slow.
Chris Irlam, ShredMate’s founder and key developer says:
“Most cycle computers are designed for riding on tarmac and give the same standard speed and distance info. We wanted to make something specifically for mountain bikers and give them some interesting data too. We love going out on trails and leaving the tarmac behind, it would be great if we could map where the jumps are, record what we did on them and measure what g-forces we felt. A couple of years ago I was teaching myself how to jump on a mountain bike, but found no way of tracking my improvement. We decided to fix this problem by developing ShredMate. Once we added the motion sensor to track jumps, it soon 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 flow.”
Chris is a keen mountain biker and experienced product designer. The other members of the ShredMate team have significant experience developing consumer sports products, such as the PoolMate swim watches.
