Rider­s­mate

Old Bike Australasia - - NEW PRODUCTS FOR ALL BIKERS -

When rid­ing on your own, one of the great­est wor­ries is that you may not be able to sum­mon as­sis­tance in the event of an ac­ci­dent. That’s where Rider­s­mate comes in. This lit­tle gad­get, fit­ted with a cheap, SMS-only SIM card, is at­tached to the bike and to the rider by means of a flex­i­ble cord and snap-clips. If the two of you part com­pany, the con­nec­tion is bro­ken and the unit sends an SMS mes­sage to up to three dif­fer­ent peo­ple of your choice that you re­quire as­sis­tance, at the lo­ca­tion iden­ti­fied by GPS. Should you get to your feet and not re­quire help, you sim­ply re­con­nect the unit and the emer­gency call is can­celled. Sim­ple. And it could even save your life. Rider­s­mate is also suit­able for cy­clists and horse riders, and is avail­able through zenonoz.com at RRP $429.00 or call Frank Tidswell on 0417 008 461 for full de­tails.
