The CoreCap Is Like a Smart Watch for Your Bike

These days, electric bicycles are becoming more and more popular with riders due to their heightened control and safety. However, there has yet to be a model with the training capabilities that you get with stationary bikes. That is, until now. Core Bike Components is getting ready to launch its Kickstarter campaign for the world’s first integrated bike computer: the CoreCap.

Boasting a straightforward graphics display and user-friendly design, the CoreCap is controlled via a radial switch along the perimeter, allowing you to toggle between five separate screens that you can customize with the accompanying mobile app, where you can also choose which notifications you want to show up on screen. The company has also partnered with several brands, including GoPro, Google Maps, Komoot for trip planning, and Strava for cycle tracking to make this device the ultimate biking companion. However, even without the phone app — which is available for both Android and iOS — the CoreCap can still track your speed, distance, and height.

Completely waterproof and dustproof, the aluminum alloy CoreCap is made to fit inside your bike’s steering tube for total protection outdoors. The device is made to fit with any mountain bike fork and can be easily installed without any special tools. Weighing around 6.5 ounces, it uses a circular OLED screen with a 1.3-inch diameter and 360-pixel resolution for maximum visibility. The 2600 mAh rechargeable lithium-ion battery lasts up to 3 months and can recharge via USB-C cable.

Hoping to change the future of smart biking, the CoreCap is readying for its launch on Kickstarter at the end of May, and you can now sign up to reserve your early bird price when it goes live.
