Previously requiring a subscription charge to be used, the live tracking and crash detection device can now offer ongoing peace of mind for nothing more than the purchase price of either the unit or a new ANGi-equipped helmet.
Pairing with the Specialized Ride App (available on iOS or Android devices), if the device detects a crash it commences a countdown prior to sending an alert to selected contacts. The user’s last known GPS coordinates are transmitted along with a message that help is required. The unit also features live tracking, time-based safety alerts and has a 6-month battery life.
Service coverage is maintained even when out of range provided users set an estimated ride time before heading out. All users need is an active data signal at the start of the ride. If the ride is not completed within that time frame ANGi will send a notification to chosen contacts with the last uploaded location.
ANGi is pre-installed in selected Specialized helmets such as the Prevail II (pictured) – a helmet that is also MIPS equipped. The unit is now also available for individual purchase and can be retro fitted to the vast majority of bike helmets in the marketplace.
It’s a case of out with the old and in with the ‘newer’ for MERIDA as they announced the release of the updated e-ONE-SIXTY on Thursday.
