ORBITREC's built in sensors can detect and record location, environment and bike orientation while you're riding. The recorded data is analyzed in the cloud to improve your riding by looking back at the visualized data, it also brings a safe and comfortable cycling experience by giving feedback on dangerous locations and the traffic situation.
The world's first 'connected' 3D printed bike
The frame has been manufactured by 3D printed titanium and brigded with high-quality carbon fiber tubes. It ensures to optimise indivisual user context, which particuraly geometric design for each as well as providing a unique look.
* We have highly cooperated with NTT DATA ENGINEERING SYSTEMS Corporation.
ORBITREC is produced by Triple Bottom Line (designer Satoshi Yanagisawa’s design unit) DMM.make AKIBA and ABBALab. Originally developed from the concept model DFM01, ORBITREC was born from this collaboration. To enable a customized frame to perfectly fit each individual owner, a 3D printing process combining sintered titanium and carbon fiber tubes has been developed.
Design by Satoshi Yanagisawa
Born in Tokyo, Japan 1978 Satoshi Yanagisawa has graduated University for the Creative Arts in the UK. He has worked with the internationally famous industrial designer Ross Lovegrove as his permanent studio staff, and also as a sustainable design consultant for a several national and international companies. Following those great experiences, he has opened own design studio ‘Triple Bottom Line’ in Japan.
Collaborate with existing ANT+ sensors
ORBITREC's intelligence module has the capability to connect with ANT+ sensor devices. It can control ANT+ devices with any sensor values and users can program ANT+ devices control logic. For example, you can automatically turn on the light in a tunnel, or post messages to Twitter when you arrive at a meeting place.
Improving your ride with big-data
Detected bumps and road conditions can be uploaded to the cloud via the smartphone app. ORBITREC / RIDE-1 downloads the road information from the cloud on the basis of the GPS, when approaching a danger zone it notifies you by sound and LED. If you crash, it will be able to automatically send an SMS to a friend.
Improve your ride with sensor and log data
Sensors developed for and built into the XON ORBITREC are available as RIDE-1, a connected sensor module that attaches to your bike. With precise logged data of your riding, you will be able to improve your cycling performance.
