Cochrane, Alberta – April 14, 2015 – ANT Wireless, proven innovator in ultra-low power (ULP) wireless technology, is proud to enable Bontrager’s latest line of ANT+ enabled Bike Light products. The Flare RT, Ion 700 RT and Transmitr Remote redefine cycling safety through wireless control of illumination while embarking on any daytime or evening ride. All three products are ANT+ compatible for convenient control of all bike lights from one spot on the handlebar.
Bontrager’s latest offering is an innovative new product that allows cyclists to dictate when and where they will ride their bike. The impressive illuminations and controllable turning signals showcase the importance of bike accessories in making cycling and safer activity and sport.
“The ANT+ Bike Light Device Profile is facilitating the launch of the first wireless light products in the market,” said James Fujimoto, Director – ANT Wireless. “Using a single wireless channel, a bike computer can control a large number of lights, along with other bike sensors, simultaneously -- a complexity that relies on the advanced features of the ANT Wireless protocol.”
