- All Systems Go: With just one thing to charge and remember, SmartSense makes it easy to head out and ride. No managing multiple devices, fiddling with settings or pairing. Just click in the power pack and go. It even turns itself on. It’s peace of mind, made easy.
- See and Be Seen. Ride assured: Ride assured with smart daytime-running lights that automatically adjust to ambient light conditions—enhancing your visibility to other road traffic. They even act as brake lights when slowing—keeping you confident and calm from sun-up to sun-down.
