Cycliq launch new Fly12 CE and Fly6 CE light/camera combos

The Kickstarter-born Fly12 and Fly6 lights with built-in HD cameras are now lighter, slimmer and have ANT+ connectivity so you can control them via your Garmin

The Aussie company have revamped both the Cycliq Fly12 and Fly6, promising sharper footage capture, a wider lens angle and brighter lights. 

Review: Cycliq Fly12

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...

 

After cobbling together a few hundred quid during his student days off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story), Jack bought his first road bike at the age of 20 and has been hooked ever since. He was Staff Writer at 220 Triathlon magazine for two years before joining road.cc in 2017, and reports on all things tech as well as editing the road.cc live blog. He is also the news editor of our electric-powered sister site eBikeTips. Jack's preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking (the latter being another long story), and on Sunday afternoons he can often be found on an M5 service station indulging in his favourite post-race meal of 20 chicken nuggets, a sausage roll, caramel shortbread and a large strawberry milkshake.
