Safety on your ride with ANGI

 

ANGi stands for Angular and G-Force indicator. It's a helmet-mounted sensor that measures the forces transmitted to your helmet during a crash, as well as the harmful rotational forces that occur during crashes when your helmet doesn't actually impact the ground.

 

The sensor contains an accelerometer and a gyro for measurement of linear and rotational forces. GPS functionality is provided via the phone/app that your ANGi sensor is connected to.

If the ANGi sensor detects a potential crash during your ride, it will connect to the Ride App on your smartphone, sound an alarm, and start a countdown. If you’re okay, you just cancel the countdown and keep riding. If you’re injured and unable to cancel the countdown, the Ride App will send a text alert to your emergency contacts telling them you may have been in an accident.
In addition to notifying your contacts that you may have crashed, ANGi and the Ride App will also send your location, via GPS coordinates. And since ANGi communicates through your wireless provider and requires a signal at all times for full functionality, you might wonder what happens if your ride takes you outside of cell service? In this scenario, ANGi is able to monitor your safety differently.
Just set your estimated ride time before you head out. All you need is an active data signal when you start your session. If you haven’t completed your ride within that time frame, ANGi will send a notification to your contacts with your last uploaded location. This will happen regardless of whether you have phone service or not.
