FOBO Bike uses the latest Bluetooth 5.0 that works directly with your Android and iOS device.
FOBO Bike 2 will monitor tire pressure in real time while riding or when in Bluetooth range. It detects slow or fast leak and alerts users to anomalies. It then transmits the readings to a smart phone where the user can browse. The user can set upper and lower thresholds of the air pressure. FOBO Bike 2 can send instant audio, haptic and text alerts on a smartphone/ smartwatch/ Bluetooth headset. It will monitor the pressure based on the thresholds with its smart algorithm and will provide three levels of alerts when the thresholds are breached. The sensor is as small as the diameter of the penny and weighs only 7.6 gram with CR1632 battery inclusive.
The main function of FOBO Bike is to monitor the air pressure and temperature of two wheelers & three wheelers like motorcycles, Can-Am Spider, bicycles. It then transmits the readings to a smart phone where the user can browse. The user can set upper and lower thresholds of the air pressure. FOBO Bike will monitor the pressure based on the thresholds with its smart algorithm and will provide three levels of alerts when the thresholds are breached.
WHICH TIRE IS UNDER-INFLATED?
Can you tell with naked eyes which tire below is under-inflated? A tire can be under-inflated by as much as 20 per cent and still look fine. For a safe ride, it is important not to eyeball or guess if tires have enough air. With FOBO Bike 2, you will be alerted the moment you get in Bluetooth range with the tires if the pressure has dropped below the thresholds you set. You can also view the tire pressure on your smartphone or smartwatch without bending your knees or getting your hands dirty or even when you are riding.
24×7 Monitoring of Your Bikes Tires
Know in real time as it constantly reads the tire pressure and compares against user set thresholds.
Multiple Mode of Alerts – Audible, Haptic & Visual Alerts
FOBO Bike 2 sends audible, haptic and visual alerts to compatible Bluetooth headsets, smart watches and phones when it detects real time tire pressure drops below preset threshold.
Slow & Fast Leak Detection
A slow leak is usually difficult to detect and it may get you stranded in rural areas. FOBO Bike 2 reads tire pressure in fine resolution and analyses the readings with its proprietary algorithm. Upon detection of a slow leak, it will immediately alert the user. When there is a considerable change of tire pressure over a short duration(in seconds), FOBO Bike 2 determines this as a fast leak and immediately sends out alerts.
Multiple Vehicles Monitoring
View all your motorcycles tire pressure and temperature in one app, up to 19 wheels. Moreover, you get an alert if there is a breach of threshold when you are in Bluetooth range.
Group Ride Monitoring
This app feature will be available by June 2019. This feature let riders form a group ride with a planned destination, date and time. During the group ride, riders can know the tire pressure status and the relative locations of one another in the Map View. If you find that your riding peer is missing and see a tire pressure alert insignia by his bike profile, you know that he may be stranded at the location on the Map View and may use your help. This is useful when cellular phone signal is not available to call for help.
Sometimes we loan our bikes to friends and it would be nice if they can be assured of riding with optimal tire pressure. FOBO Share, a patented function, allows your friends(Sharee) to use your motorcycle and the installed FOBO Bike 2 with their very own smartphones; this can be done for up to 100 other friends with qualified smartphones. Just download the FOBO Bike 2 App and send a “key”/ “request” to you who will grant permission to use FOBO Bike 2 with just a click. Sharing has never been easier.
Remote Monitoring – Auto Push & Pull Data
Ever wonder if your loved one is riding with an optimal tire pressure? When FOBO Share is in use, the owner can view the tire pressures on his or her very own smartphone even when the Sharee is riding far away. Likewise, when the owner is riding far away on the motorcycle, the Sharee can view the tire pressures on his or her very own phone. This is done through FOBO’s patented technology.
Seamless Swap from One Smart device to another (CrossPairTM)
The patented CrossPair technology enables a seamless swap from one smart device to another to monitor FOBO Bike 2. This feature is useful when changing to a new phone or just simply swapping to a different phone. All installed FOBO Bike 2 profiles will be transferred to the new device, without the need to individually pair and install again.
2-Levels of Theft Deterrent
The first level of deterrent is done with proprietary nuts and wrench. In the event that the sensor is still stolen, it cannot be installed again. This second level of deterrent removes the economic value of the sensor. For ownership transfer, the original owner must release the sensors from his profile using the app..

Importance of proper tyre inflation
78,392 crashes (414 fatalities) occurred ANNUALLY in the US due to flat tyres or blowouts before tyre pressure monitoring systems were installed in vehicles (ref. NHTSA. (2003, June). “FMVSS No. 139, New Pneumatic tyres for Light Vehicles”, Docket No. NHTSA-2003-15400-2).
Tyre tread life would decrease by about 8,704km due to driving with under-inflation over its lifetime. That translates to 15-20% of a typical tyre life. (ref. NHTSA Docket No. NHTSA-2000-8572-26).
Fuel efficiency is reduced by 1% for every 3 psi of under-inflation. With proper inflated tyres, US car drivers could save US$11 billion in fuel (US Energy Information Administration – 2013). (ref. NHTSA Docket No. NHTSA-2000-8572-26)
