The Aussie company have revamped both the Cycliq Fly12 and Fly6, promising sharper footage capture, a wider lens angle and brighter lights.
The front-facing Fly12 CE weighs 195g, 49g lighter than the original version. the light pumps out an impressive 600 lumens on full beam, and up to 8 hours of battery life taking 2.5 hours to fully charge. The lens has now improved from 100° to 135° angle for a better field of view,and the 1080p HD camera records at 60FPS with audio capture too. ANT+ support means that you can now connect the Fly12 CE and Fly6 CE lights to your Garmin, as well as Cycliq's app via Bluetooth.
The rear Fly6 CE has 100 lumens of brightness and has up to 7 hours of battery life. It's got various dimming settings and light modes and weighs in at just 110g. It also has the improved 135° wide lens view.
Both lights have a 'Homesafe' mode, that turns video recording off and continues to run the light for up to 1.5 hours to get you home, and built-in bike alarms that flash and automatically start recording incidents while alerting you to it via the Cycliq app. As with the first-gen Cycliqs, the MP4 video format records in either 5, 10, and 15 minute segments.
The Fly12 will retail at £255 and the Fly6 £169, with both available to buy from 30th November. Our reviewer George Hill was impressed with the original Fly12 last year, and we're expecting the new versions in the office shortly. Check back for a preview and review soon...
Arriving at road.cc in 2017 via 220 Triathlon Magazine, Jack dipped his toe in most jobs on the site and over at eBikeTips before being named the new editor of road.cc in 2020, much to his surprise. His cycling life began during his students days, when he cobbled together a few hundred quid off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story) and bought his first road bike - a Trek 1.1 that was quickly relegated to winter steed, before it was sadly pinched a few years later. Creatively replacing it with a Trek 1.2, Jack mostly rides this bike around local cycle paths nowadays, but when he wants to get the racer out and be competitive his preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking - the latter being another long story.
