See.Sense Intelligent Rear Light Review

Review on the http://seesense.co/  Intelligent  rear bike light,

I came across this rear bike light on the Internet  a while back, but never gave it much thought, after all it's Just another Bike Light, isn't it? well no this is not just another bike light, this is a little bit different to the rest.......... "it's Intelligent!

A WORD OF WARNING

DO NOT have the http://seesense.co/ facing your eyes when it comes to life!
It is hard for us to show you how bright this light is on a review page, but be assured it is!
The clever part is, it will not dazzle car drivers, but it is still bright enough to be seen on the road. 

Let me introduce you to the http://seesense.co/ Intelligent Bike Light.

                                   http://seesense.co/, making great use of what we all ready have

Lets take a look at the box it comes in, all the  packaging is recyclable




                              The Intelligent Cycle Light With Road Sense!

This light is Bright! And we mean BRIGHT
A 125 Lumens,

The most clever cycle light we have come across so far, it monitors your bike speed, the road conditions, and external light, very clever, quite amazing!

What is in the Box

Rear http://seesense.co/ Intelligent Cycle Light
USB Charging Lead
Instruction booklet

At first sight and you will think it is a Front light! No trace of Red anywhere, have they sent me the wrong one you may ask.

After a quick read of the instruction booklet on "How To Charge" and few hours later, I was left in no doubt this was a back light.

They use Cree L E D's, the very best.


The Intelligent sensor technology.

The rear light monitors the motion, orientation, and day light, it has a wide angle lens which means you will be seen from all angles as it gives out  a wide beam of light. 

 This unit has no ON or Off  buttons!
You turn it on by twisting it from  side to side 3 times.
To turn it off, simply lay it down flat, and it shuts down, this is all achieved by motion sensors, great if your wearing gloves, it will also not turn itself on if it is in your bag or jacket pocket, it will stay off until needed, to save battery life.

Battery
The http://seesense.co/ light is fitted with a  lithium ion battery that can be recharged from any USB socket. (Handy when at work and your near a PC).
 The See.Sense has a  "Fuel Gauge" (L.E.D'S) so it will let you know the remaining runtime/battery life, meaning your http://seesense.co/ will never run out of charge unexpectedly. Power consumption has been reduced in stand by mode, giving 12 times longer stand by time.
 Depending on the power setting it is believed to last around 12 hours run time depending on how you use it, and the settings etc,  before you need to recharge it, but the light will tell you when it needs to be done.

How many settings

It can be simply taken out of the box and charged up, no fiddling with settings, just charge, set it to ON and off you go.
You could also change the setting's to personally suit your type of riding and road conditions, you decide on the power levels, flash sequence, it's up to you how you want it.
The See.Sense bike light will change the rate of illumination depending on how fast your moving, slowing down, or waiting ie: at traffic lights.
When it senses darkness it will flash rapidly.
 If left alone and not used, the light will automatically shut down, when you get back on your bike to ride off, it will start up! So clever and bright! 

This link shows a good video of what to expect from your new light.

The http://seesense.co/ is a very compact light which fits on to the rear of your bike, and weighs in at a measly 55 Grams, the Lens cover is made from the same material they used to make the helmet visor for the Apollo astronauts to wear in Space, this is called" Lexan",  the case is made from a material called "Luran S", which is a very tough ASA plastic, so on paper it sounds indestructible!

Fixing to your bike.

Fitting is a very simple thing to do.
http://seesense.co/ light comes complete with two straps (one as a spare) this is then simply attached to the hook on the side of the lamp whilst held in position on the seat post and then affixed to the other hook, holding it very securely in place.

Out on the road.

I found that whilst cycling on the road drivers were passing me a little bit wider than they would normally have done, I thought it was just me until I mentioned this on Twitter and other cyclists who have purchased the http://seesense.co/ light came back with the same conclusion!
I am not saying go out and buy one of theses lights and you will never have a close pass by a driver again, what I am saying is it makes you feel safer on the road! The best and brightest light I have have tested so far this year, one that is so cleaver I am amazed no one has ever come up with this idea before, if you only have one rear light, make it this one, beats the rest hands down!

How did it come about the http://seesense.co/ Cycle light.

UPDATE 

 

See.Sense. Extras and Spares

SeeSence now have a nice range of "Bling", different colour  gaskets, a Pink, Yellow, Orange. 

How easy is it to install the new "Bing" Gasket!

Fitting so easy, I will help you to change it here.

Remove the lens, place to one side


Note the way the gasket is, you simply cannot go wrong, as the gasket will only fit one way round.


Two lugs match up with the two slots on the gasket, gently push the gasket into place, making sure it is nice and tight all round.

 Nice fit all way round

 Once the gasket is in place, you are ready to refit the lens.
 Snap the lens on, this will only fit one way.
 All done, as easy as anything, child's play!

 Stand out from the crowed


UPDATE 

Grab your self a great SeeSense Cycling shirt.
