SoundofMotion and BMC announce collaboration
Swiss bicycle manufacturer BMC is known for its phenomenal innovation. The use of new mate-rials, production processes, and frame structures gives BMC products a competitive edge over others.
Bicycle digitalization is the next big step in development in the bicycle industry. Electronic groupsets, shock absorbers, power meters, and GPS are dynamically conquering the world of bicycles, which was analog for so long.
BMC Switzerland is dedicated to raising the limits of what is possible in the digital development of top bikes. It looks forward to working closely with a strong partner in sensor technology—SoundOfMotion.
SoundOfMotion’s brand VeloComputer.com specializes in the development and sales of high-precision movement sensors for use in cycling sports and their connectivity with smartphones. The Smart Sensor was recently presented to the public. It can be used without magnets as a hub (speed measurement) or crank sensor (cadence measurement). It supports both Bluetooth Smart and ANT+ wireless technology, which makes it compatible with a number of devices.
Vlad Savchenko, CEO of VeloComputer.com is enthusiastic about cooperating with the high-end bicycle manufacturer. “It’s the perfect symbiosis of extensive expertise in frame construction and sensor technology. We will be able to make much use of synergy.” For Stephan Christ, head of development at BMC, it is the next logical step. “We are the experts in research, development, and production of top bikes,” he said. “By taking the next step into the new dimension of imple-menting electronics in bicycles, we will profit greatly from cooperating with VeloComputer.com and SoundOfMotion’s resources in electronics and informatics.”
