Ridersmate is designed with every rider in mind. From road cyclists and mountain bikers to motorcyclists and horse riders, major roads to hidden routes and bustling towns to serene forests, the device has the mission of keeping you in reach of key contacts no matter what. All kinds of people use Ridersmate; whilst amateur and expert bikers use it as a means of never being cut off from emergency services in the event of a slip, families can go for a ride with the knowledge that someone can locate them if the parent has an accident, thus safeguarding the children as well as tending to the injured adult.
The Ridersmate Guide is now available for iOS, making it easier than ever to use the device to its full and even life-saving potential. This handy app has multiple features, including Where’s My Ride? (if your ride is stolen or lost, press the green button and you’ll receive its location in a text message), Geo-fence (receive a message if your ride is moved outside of a 500-metre virtual fence), and Where’s My Mates? (if your fellow riders also have a Ridersmate with them, you can see on a map where they are in relation to you). These features can prove invaluable in a city centre as much as they can a secluded bike or horse trail. Plus you don’t have to worry about losing your reception, as Ridersmate piggybacks on any signal available and has a battery life that last for hours.
Since launching in early February 2015, Ridersmate has helped riders across the world contact crisis numbers within minutes. Over the coming weeks we’ll share some testimonials that describe how the device has connected them to fellow riders, family and emergency vehicles and, in at least one instance, helping to prevent far more serious injuries.
