Hammerhead is a smartphone powered, Bluetooth-enabled tool that guides you to and through the safest and most enjoyable bike routes out there. With the Hammerhead’s intuitive LED light array, you can keep your eyes safely on the road while you get the information you need through the corner of your eye. Like any great tool, it simply works. Create great routes and share them with the community. Compete in real time. And above all else, enjoy the ride.
Hammerhead shows you everything you need to navigate while not distracting you with text, small graphics or the need for headphones. For rider safety, we have developed cues and signals much like those used by racecar drivers or fighter pilots. The device works well in all light and weather conditions and you can even customize the light array within our app to suit your preferences.
Pull out your iPhone or Android device and fire up our app. Discover a great ride based on your preferences: hills, distance, scenery or difficulty. Hammerhead will guide you through the route seamlessly with safe, simple, and intuitive turn-by-turn instructions.
Not going for a joyride? Hammerhead will get you from point A to point B safely and quickly. No need to look at your cell phone as you try to figure out a faster way to cut across town – just follow the LEDs and you will arrive in no time at all.
Know an awesome ride? - or the best way to get through your neighborhood? Share this knowledge instantly with friends and the community at large. Our app makes it simple to send routes to others. Instead of just talking about it, share that ride that you know so well and get rewarded in the app for your input.
Already using a biking app with your friends? We are big fans of Strava, MapMyRide and some of the other biking apps out there, too. Hammerhead gives you turn-by-turn navigation from the routes and segments that you want to ride from your favorite app.
Competing in real time beats waiting to see how you did when you get home. Hammerhead will show you your start, end and goal speed for each moment in a segment, and how far off it you might be. Don’t compete blind. Make each ride count.
Going for a ride with friends or with a group? Hammerhead can guide you to them without having to coordinate meeting times and locations.
Hammerhead is also at home on the trail. Its internal compass and unique red dot pursuit will guide you through the wilderness. Navigate anywhere from trails to the open desert - all with the same safe and simple turn-by-turn light pattern instructions that you’ve grown to love on the roads.
Our app is ultra efficient, and works while your smartphone screen is off to maximize battery life. Your smartphone will run for over 5 hours while working with Hammerhead. As for the device itself, we built in the latest LiPo technology to ensure the Hammerhead will last for over 20 hours before recharging via micro USB.
Because Hammerhead uses your smartphone’s GPS system, you get a more accurate GPS reading than you would with most standalone GPS units. Don't stand around waiting to acquire satellites - go ride. Our app pre-loads route information, so you can venture into the unknown without needing cell service to navigate.
We think these new bike share systems springing up all across the nation are awesome. Often, though, the people riding these bikes are unfamiliar with their surroundings; trying to navigate through a busy city on a bicycle can be hazardous even for knowledgeable and experienced riders. Enter Hammerhead, which not only guides riders to the sights they want to see, but also can show them much time they have left on the bike and guide them to the nearest available docking station with ease. We believe that Hammerhead can help make urban bike share a complete solution.
The Hammerhead is more than a year deep in development and testing. It is a truly unique product - there is simply nothing like it. No other product provides the simple, clean, and rich navigation information anywhere near as safely as the Hammerhead. The potential leap in safety both for individuals and for the cycling community as a whole has us very excited. We have partnered with the best minds in manufacturing and software to get you this revolutionary product for this upcoming summer. With Hammerhead, you can keep your mind on your ride and your eyes on the road.
