When you’re out on your bike, you need to be as visible as possible — especially at night. See.Sense ACE is a bike light that uses artificial intelligence that reacts to every moment of your journey, making cycling safer and simpler.

The light improves visibility when you need it most, and ensures you’re seen on the road. It also connects to your smartphone to provide things like theft alerts and cycling stats.

See.Sense launched the world’s first intelligent, daylight-visible lights in 2013. Its focus has always been on improving daylight visibility, and over the past five years, it has been combining research and development with user experience and ideas to reach the next level.

That level is Ace, a new light powered by artificial intelligence. It’s with you on every step of your journey, ensuring you can rely on it when you need it most. It’s easily visible at all times, and gets brighter when you approach roundabouts, junctions, and oncoming cars.

Ace is the best See.Sense light yet

Ace is designed to be visible from more than a mile away, with a 150 lumen bulb at the front and a 125 lumen bulb at the back. Its 200-degree lens means you can even be seen from the side, and it’s IP67-rated for water-resistance, so you can continue your journey in the rain.

Ace lasts for around ten hours in between charges, and uses smart battery management to maximize running times. It turns off automatically when you’re done riding, and remembers where you left your bike so that you don’t have to.

Ace can provide crash and theft alerts, and be set to display custom flash patterns when you combine it with the new See.Sense smartphone app. It boasts a brake light function, a multi-functional mount system, and more.

Ace needs your support

Whether you’re a seasoned cyclist or a beginner who wants the safest start, Ace is the ultimate bike light. But See.Sense needs your support to bring Ace to market. Its Kickstarter campaign is live now, and has already smashed its funding goal with 25 days left to go.

To get your hands on one of the first Ace lights off the production line, visit the campaign page and pledge at least £44 (approx. $58) for the set, which includes both front and back lights.
