Subiaco, AUSTRALIA


Leederville, Australia, Feb. 12, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today Cycliq maker of innovative cycling accessories, launched a Kickstarter campaign for its newest product, the Fly12. A combination headlight and HD camera made by cyclists for cyclists, Fly12 lets cyclists ride safely while recording the action in front of them. Fly12 is built off the popular Fly6, an award-winning tail-light and safety camera combo that was one of the few Kickstarter campaigns to deliver on-time to all backers. 

"Fly6 has been very popular, and our customers love to give feedback," says Andrew Hagen, CEO of Cycliq. "By far the most frequent request we hear is 'when can I get my Fly12?' This product has been in demand, and we've always wanted to enhance the rider experience with a front-facing device. Fly12 is the perfect solution for both commuters riding in low-light conditions and weekend warriors who want to record their rides."

Fly12 is lightweight and compact with a slick, modern design. It features a 1080p action camera that can record for up to 10 hours in camera-only mode, while the headlight delivers up to 400 lumens for low light visibility.  Fly12 also integrates WiFi and Bluetooth capability, enabling cyclists to easily share footage at the coffee shop or after a ride. Using the companion app, riders can view, edit, upload  and share snippets on social media.

Fly12 Features:

  • Full HD 1080p Camera:  Fly12 features 1080p resolution and records at 45 FPS, ensuring next-level resolution and rich detail

  • Superb Battery Life: Fly12's battery will last up to 10 hours in camera-only mode, which is as much as four times as long as other popular action cameras. The light lasts for up to two hours at full intensity (while also recording), to easily last the average commute or up to six hours on flashing modes
  • User-Friendly Companion App:  Fly12 comes with a companion app that allows for on-the-fly video trimming and sharing to social networks. The app will offer an "tramline" application feature that shows a three foot buffer from the bike
  • Strava Integration: Once paired with Fly12, Cycliq's smartphone app accesses Strava ride statistics and lets users select which metrics to display as an overlay on video footage, such as speed, power, heart rate and more.
