Debuting at CES 2016 – ORBITREC, a Connected, 3D Printed Road Bike and XON RIDE-1 an Advanced Sensor Module for Bikes


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

5th January 2016, Tokyo

The newest additions to the XON series of smart sports products,  ORBITREC and RIDE-1 will be exhibited at CES Unveiled and CES 2016

Cerevo, an Internet connected consumer electronics developer and creator, is pleased to announce ORBITREC as the newest addition to the XON series of smart sports products. ORBITREC is a connected road bike with advanced internal sensors and a 3D printed frame. In addition to ORBITREC, RIDE-1 has been developed, RIDE-1 is a clip on sensor module allowing existing bike owners to use the advanced sensors and connected features from ORBITREC. Both products will be exhibited at CES Unveiled from 4th January and CES 2016 from 6th January in Las Vegas, USA. They will be available to purchase in spring 2016.

ORBITREC is produced by Triple Bottom Line (designer Satoshi Yanagisawa’s design unit) DMM.make AKIBA and ABBALab. Originally developed from the concept model DFM01, ORBITREC was born from this collaboration. To enable a customized frame to perfectly fit each individual owner, a 3D printing process combining sintered titanium and carbon fiber tubes has been developed. The customized light-weight frame can be used for personal or professional riding, with a delivery time of less than a month and at a price of less than US$7,000.

frame

Various sensors are built into the bike’s frame, which can receive and send information, creating a ride log while cycling. The big data obtained by ORBITREC and RIDE-1 is then analyzed in the cloud to further help and record your riding.  You can also connect to ORBITREC and REC-1 through their companion smartphone applications.

sensor

ORBITREC features a 9 axis sensor (acceleration, angular velocity, geomagnetism), temperature, humidity, atmosphere and illuminance sensors as well as GPS. In addition to basic information such as riding location and velocity, frame status such as lean and impact can be recorded. When combined with the GPS sensor this creates a detailed riding log history that can easily be viewed at any time.

Bluetooth and ANT+ connectivity are available to communicate with other devices and services. For example, using a connected smartphone, if you crash it will be able to automatically send an SMS to a friend, changing suspension damping when passing a certain point or using the illuminance sensors to automatically turn on the light when in tunnels. Detected bumps and road conditions can be uploaded to the cloud via the smartphone app, alerting other riders of any changes in road conditions or dangers ahead.

This product has been made using 3D printing technology provided by NTT DATA ENGINEERING SYSTEMS Corporation and uses 3D printed titanium joints. As a result it was possible to mass produce parts with sufficient practical strength using a 3D printer.

RIDE-1 features the same sensors that are built into ORBITREC. Attach RIDE-1 to an existing road or cyclocross bike to experience similar functions to ORBITREC.
