Testimonials

“When I commuted to work… I was always traveling at high traffic times and it was dangerous.Having a rear facing camera would be beneficial to you and your family if you had evidence that your accident or death was caused by the driver. Many people don’t ride bikes because there’s a fear factor more now than there ever has been.”
– Erica S

“When I used to commute to work I wouldn’t mind using the rear facing camera. I was always traveling at high traffic times and it was dangerous on certain roads. Having a rear facing camera could be beneficial to your family if you had evidence that your accident or death was caused by something else other than your own lack of good judgment. A lot of times people don’t ride bikes because of preconceived hazards. There’s a fear factor involved more so now than there ever has been and it’s due to phone distractions.”

“I was fortunate to meet Jeff and eventually try the prototype safety device. As a retired law enforcement officer and avid cyclist I knew right away this product would help recreational cyclist with being aware of their surroundings. I believe this product is just as important as front/rear safety lights. The ease of use to install and operate the product is impressive. I know from working for a professional bicycle shop after retirement that most customers value their safety and I believe this product should be recommended to all customers buying a new bike and/or those looking to purchase safety related equipment.”

Whether we commute to work or ride recreationally (or both): What do we need? The fancy term is “situational awareness” but it just means being able to see all around without head movement. That’s why we say don’t be a “Bobblehead”.

Looking back means we are not looking forward which is exactly when we hit a pothole.
Even fighter pilots have a mechanism for seeing what’s behind them – why can’t cyclists?

As we developed the idea for Cyclesight, we kept reading about instances of where the police simply didn’t – almost ever – believe cyclists. Even worse, of course, were situations where the cyclist was killed as a result of the crash.
The only way to solve this, of course, was to have a recording.

There isn’t a product currently available that has both visual feedback
(i.e. an LCD screen) AND provides a recording.
