ShredMate - The First Bike Computer to Track Your Jumps is Nearly 80 Funded

bigquotesShredMate is the first bike computer developed purely for mountain biking.

The ShredMate sensor houses a motion sensor to give you more information about your riding.

ShredMate combines a motion sensor with specialized algorithms to give you exciting new information about your riding. The small sensor attaches to your fork and connects directly to your smartphone via Bluetooth to track your ride on the ShredMate app. so that you can view your:


• Jumps – ShredMate locates and measures your jump air time – and landing G-force. By training to reduce your landing g force you will improve your flow on the trail.

• G-Force – ShredMate detects peak G-forces – tight corners, G-outs (and even the odd crash). ShredMate displays these g forces on the map.

• Rough Trails – ShredMate automatically detects when you’re riding a rough trail. ShredMate lets you view each trail separately so that you can view detailed telemetry for the sections of your ride that matter the most.

• Speed – ShredMate shows your route as a trace that changes colour depending on how fast you go. Red for fast, green for slow.

bigquotesA couple of years ago I was teaching myself how to jump on a mountain bike, but found no way of tracking my progress. We decided to fix this problem by developing ShredMate. Once we added the motion sensor to track jumps, it became clear we could do so much more. Through careful optimization of our algorithms, ShredMate can track G-forces, detect individual trails and measure your jump landing G-force. By training to reduce your jump landing g-force, ShredMate can help improve your riding.Chris, ShredMate Founder


ShredMate have raised over 75% of our Kickstarter campaign target so far and is available now for a discounted rate of £60 ($77 USD, $97 CAD).

 "ShredMate automatically detects when you’re riding a rough trail"
WoW!
If it's one thing I've always wished for, it's something to tell me if I'm on a rough trail
  • + 12
 How does this differentiate the difference between rough trails and poorly set suspension, or even running a fully rigid bike?
  • + 4
 just pair to to a shockwiz!

 @Sardine: opens up allot of options for sure with the shock wiz or the new fox stuff coming out

 it mounts to lower leg, so it has nothing to do with suspension setup, I guess. Most it could tell that your'e running flat tire
  • + 12
 But does it pair to my Strava app so I can compete for max airtime while I compete for highest jump while I compete for my daily KOM's? #progression

 this won't make you better at jumping...just go hit jumps ffs

Any time one of these widgets is released, ask yourself a simple question...are any of the guys you strive to ride like using this shit? No. And if they are, it was given to them.
  • + 1
 Of course it won't make you better, but it could help measure improvement with practice.
  • + 2
 How does it differentiate between a jump and a manual? Seems like it should be mounted more near the middle of the bike instead of on one extreme end unless you can mount a second one to the rear to analyze the data at both ends of the bike. Definitely another cool way to get things fine tuned whether it's for the physics of the bike or the style/talent of the rider.

 damn i cannot cheat on my next jump record doing a 250ft manual !

 Put it near the bottom bracket to measure roughness related to suspension setup maybe.

 Related concept: In the world of motorcycle racing, the idea has been batted around of using GPS data and solenoid valves (or any electronically actuated set up that you prefer) to adjust damper settings on the fly - eg., if you know a smooth high speed turn is on the way, your damping firms up just for that turn.

That seems like a potential application for this type of instrument. If you know what trail you're on, you could download detailed trail data and hook that up to your fork and / or shock.

If we've got electronic shifters (still can't understand that one) then there's got to be a market for racing level electronic suspension.
  • + 1
 There is manual lock out levers already filling this market. Weight matters on a MTB where it does not on a moto. Now if the compression valves worked automatically that would be different.
  • + 1
 @Lastpikd: The compression valves would work automatically - that's the entire idea. Systems like the Brain are already trying to do this, but not in a very "smart" way. It has, AFAIK, two settings - open and closed - which are decided upon basid on your angle of inclination.

It doesn't take huge amounts of voltage to operate a solenoid to adjust the valve openings. We're not just talking lockout on climbs vs. open on downs, here. An electronic system with detailed trail data (and user location data) could increase or decrease all the damper settings incrementally based on location. For example, set your LSC to 2 and rebound to 4 clicks here, set LSC to 5 and R to 8 there, etc. All dynamically, without user input on the trail.
  • + 1
 @WaterBear: If you're referring to the Brain System on some Specialized Bikes, it is actually actuated by upwards acceleration of the rear wheel. This way the damper is in lockout on smooth terrain and opens only when you hit bumps or a flat landing. I tried it once and was surprised that you could hardly sense any delay. A friend of mine is very frustrated with technical issues though. I suppose it makes sense for cross country racing, but since I'm just riding for fun I rather cope with some pedalling inneficiency than ride with a closed damper half the time.
  • + 5
 If you install that on Aggy for instance, it would make more sense to measure the ground time.
  • + 2
 I think its a great idea with a old mind. Magnetic wheel speed sensing is yesterday news. Try Garmin way with gyro sensor attahed to front hub. You dispense the magnets on spoke and get a easy to mount device.

 Pretty sure if sram updated shockwiz to include gps or link into garmin? Job done

 This is the next step towards dynamic suspension settings, this paired with shockwiz that is connected to an air canister that changes your settings based on the terrain Also you could add a setting for a trail, so when you go to hit a line it gets your gps reading and loads the profile for the trail. This is the future

 Wouldnt it be better to have it on yourself?
  • + 1
 No. If you hit a rough trail, your body won't feel most of the roughness due to your suspension and your legs working to keep your body stable. Think of it like gopro footage from the camera mounted to your fork lowers compared to mounted to your head. Head cam is extremely steady and stabalised, fork cam feels every bump.
