Designed to be used by cyclists yet just as suitable for horse riders and sports action use, the RoadHawk Ride R+ Cycle Edition is a market leading helmet camera. The waterproof, discrete and robust camera offers a choice of standard or loop recording with an optional time and date stamp. This makes it ideal for road users recording their journeys for evidential purposes or for recording sports action adventures.
The additional RF remote control allows for greater flexibility when using the RoadHawk Ride R+ Cycle Edition, not only allowing remote recording, but also the ability to take photographs.
The Ride R+ Cycle Edition is supplied with an 8GB MicroSD Memory card that can hold around 90 minutes of 1080p HD video. When upgraded to a 32GB MicroSD card, the capacity is extended to over 5 hours (subject to power).
We’ve made the RoadHawk Ride R+ Cycle Edition as simple as possible to operate. There is a single button on the camera to turn it on/off. If the camera is on then it is recording! Vibration alert enables you to know it is powered on or off, without looking at the camera.
The built-in Li-Poly battery will record for around 90 minutes. The optional RoadHawk Waterproof USB battery pack can be connected for longer record times (up to 4.5 hours), whilst the complete kit remains waterproof
The RoadHawk Ride R+ Cycle Edition is also fully software configurable, allowing riders to adjust the settings for exposure, brightness and contrast. The software also allows loop record mode to be turned off for the rides you don’t want recorded over, the time and date stamp added removed or changed, and footage inverted for times when mounting the camera the right way up are not possible.
To change the settings you need to plug the camera into the computer and launch the camera software.
