Why do I
WHY DO I NEED IT?
Whether you’re a road cyclist, mountain biker, motorcyclist or horse rider, Ridersmate is there to provide you with security and peace of mind that comes from knowing if you have a serious accident, help will be on the way.
Ridersmate – for when every second counts…
The second you fall off your ride and suffer a serious injury, the clock starts ticking. Now, it's a race against time to provide you with the expert, specialist medical care you need.
It's what's known as 'The Golden Hour' – that crucial first 60 minutes after an accident when it's absolutely vital that you receive effective treatment. Failure to receive treatment inside this hour can be disastrous, significantly impacting on your likely survival rate and recovery outcome.
When you fall off, Ridersmate springs into action (here's how it works). You can relax, safe in the knowledge that your loved ones know exactly where you are, and that medical experts are on their way to help you as quickly as possible.
“The ambulance got to me within 12 minutes following a call from my brother, he got the Ridersmate message. It was a close call apparently.”
Jeff, Motorbiker, Caterham, Surrey, UK.
Foolproof Safety & Backup
No one wants their loved ones worrying unnecessarily – which is why Ridersmate features a number of built-in backups to maximise safety, whilst minimising the risk of false alarms, including:
- Emergency SOS button – for manual activation
- Easy cancelling – simply reattach Ridersmate, and it sends a message to loved ones letting them know you're ok
- Automatic multiple accident messaging – two messages sent 1 minute apart to help guarantee a response
- Non-emergency messaging – request loved ones aid in a non-emergency situation
