The project will run from mid-May to August 2019. Those wishing to take part must register their interest here.
If the application is successful, the See.Sense ACE bike light can then be purchased at a heavily subsidised price of £10 (RRP £45).
See.Sense exists to make cycling better for everyone, with our award-winning bike lights giving cyclists more visibility on their ride, and cities more information on their roads.
ACE shines powerfully both in daylight and at night-time, makes you visible from over a mile away and gives you 200° of side visibility on your commute.
At moments of risk (e.g. at junctions or filtering traffic) ACE reacts by automatically flashing brighter and faster.
Control and customise ACE’s brightness and flash pattern and receive alerts when your lights battery is low through our mobile app.

ACE’s technology detects any road issues or unsafe routes you face on your ride. You can then share these ride insights via our app to help Planners upgrade roads and boost cycling safety.
Notify an emergency contact if you’re in a crash, and receive notifications if your bike is moved when you’re not there.
Adrian Slatcher, SynchroniCity Project Manager for Manchester City Council says:
“We are delighted to work with See.Sense and BT as part of the Synchronicity project. The rich insights gathered from this approach will generate unique insights into the experience of cycling in our city that will help to inform our plans to promote active travel”
