Clacton-based safety camera brand Techalogic are about to launch what they say is the first all-in-one helmet camera with dual lens, front and rear recording.
Described as a "bullet style" camera, Techalogic originally aimed it at motorcyclists but say they realised that lots of cyclists appreciated the technology in the testing phase. It's a patented design and Techalogic insist it's a world first.
The video above gives an idea of the recording quality you can expect, and the camera is affixed in the middle of a bracket that sits on top of your helmet. Charging is via USB, with a lens at both ends of the unit.
As detailed in the tech specs above the resolution is 1920 x 1080P, and you'll get 2.5 hours of recording time out of it on a full charge. It also comes with a wireless controller; this can automatically take a photo with the camera button, and you can also press the lock button to lock the current recording file.
The family business are about to launch a new website for the Techalogic brand, but have been trading as Mycrocam UK for the last eight years. Techalogic say the camera will be priced at £179.95 with all mounting accessories included when it goes on sale in four to five weeks' time.
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.
