VIKTIG FOR Å FORSTÅ SMART BRAKE

Bremseenheten

  • Bremseenheten er en hydraulisk* aktivator for bremsene.
  • Bremseenheten er direkte koblet på en caliper* eller en felgbrems. Det vil si at det trengs en bremseenhet pr. hjul som skal bremses.
    Hvis totalvekt for kjører og kjøretøy er under 100kg kan en bremseenhet bli koblet sammen med to calipere. Da blir bremseeffekten fordelt på to hjul.
  • En bremseenhet passer for kjøretøy og fører med totalvekt under 100kg. Totalvekt over 100kg anbefales 2 eller flere units (pr.100kg).
  • SMART BRAKE kommer ferdig tilkoblet en hydraulisk caliper eller felgbrems og erstatter det eksisterende bremsesystemet. På den måten har det ingen ting å si om kjøretøyet hadde vaier- eller hydraulisk system fra før. 
  • Bremseenheten passer alle kjøretøy som har mulighet for påkobling av enten en caliper (skivebrems) eller felgbrems. Bremsesystemet er enkelt å  montere og kan monteres uten teknisk erfaring.

Bremsekontrollene

  • Bremsekontrollene er trådløse med en signalrekkevidde på 15 meter.
  • Kontrollene kan ikke ta opp signal fra andre SMART BRAKE enheter som den ikke er koblet til.
  • Pr. 2020 har vi tre forskjellige bremsekontroller.

Sikkerhet

  • Hvis systemet går tom for strøm eller mister signalet vil bremsene automatisk starte en rolig oppbremsning.
  • Vi anbefaler i alle tilfeller å ha 2 seperate bremsesystemer om ett skulle svikte. Det være seg SMART BRAKE på bakhjulet og et mekanisk system på forhjulet, eller SMART BRAKE på alle hjul oppkoblet som to separate systemer med 2 kontroller som styrer hver sin SMART BRAKE bremseenhet. 
  • SMART BRAKE Teknologien er testet og brukt av over 1000 personer over hele verden i over 5 år. 
 

Brake controls

All SMART BRAKE controls has 15 meters signal range. They communicates true radio frequency (RF) and can not interference with other power sources or transmitters. 
For information about light signals see Documents – “Light signals” over.

(P) Parking brake function which lock/stop the brakes. To unlock the brake, press the (brake) button.

(Brake) hold it in the button to slow down the speed and release the button to increase the speed of the vehicle.

Type of battery in the hand control: 3.7V 190mAh, Li-Polymer. 

With the Brake Trigger, you can activate the brake simply by the tip of your finger. With 80 points resolution, you can control the brake force gradually, according to
your needs.

SMART BRAKE Trigger is adaptable with most Swix ski pole models, and a selective range from OneWay.

For other pole models with a diameter of 16mm, we recommend buying a pair of Swix pole shafts. In our web shop you can also buy complete Swix poles.

Type of battery in the remote control: CR2032 (3.7V 190mAh, Li-Polymer). 1+ year lifetime.

Parking brake (p) – To activate the parking brake, push the handle away from you one notch. When parking brake is activated, the controller lights up a red light.

Active brake – To activate the brake, simply pull the lever towards you as a normal bike lever. 

 

By setting the lever in preferred position the technology automatically adjust itself to obtain proper braking force per degree of lever movement.

If decreasing the distance from the lever to handlebars: Do 5 full brake lever movements. You will remain full braking effect after fulfilling these sequences.

If increasing the distance from the lever to handlebars: Do 1 full brake lever movement. You will remain full braking effect immediately. 

The second notch is made for future functions, but are for now only a extension of the parking brake. 

Yes, the Brake Lever is made symetric to fit both side of the handlebar. Just remove the rubber cap and turn the Brake Lever around.  

Brake Unit

The Brake Unit is an mechanical electronic control box for the brakes. It takes up signals from the brake control and transmit them to a function. 

Inside the Brake Unit is a motor that push a piston in to the reservoir. Mineral oil will from there go into the brakes witch provide speed decreasing. 

There is also a large re-chargeable battery witch provides with 4000 brakes form a fully charged battery.

For information about light signals see Documents – “Light signals” over.

Push one time on the Power button to start the system. When starting you will hear the motor preform a braking test and a red blinking light occurs.

MARK: We recommend to mount the SMART BRAKE Unit before you turn it on. The first time you push the power button, the accelerometer will be activated. After the accelerometer is activated the braking system will automatically turn on when SMART BRAKE is being moved.

SMART BRAKE goes into sleeping mode (no power used) after 30 minutes of inactivity. Simply by moing the vehicle, SMART BRAKE will be activated (via
accelerometer), making it very quick and easy to get ready to your next trip.

By activating the parking brake from the control, the Unit locks the brakes and goes in to a sleeping mode where SMART BRAKE do not use any power. From parking brake mode, SMART BRAKE will not be activated simply by moving the vehicle. You need to release the P-brake from your controller.

Each SMART BRAKE Unit provides sufficient brake force to stop 100 kg.

If the total weight of vehicle +  user adds up to 200 kg you will need two brake units. 
If over 200 kilos we would recomand three brake units.

  • One Brake Unit can connect with two calipers or rim brakes simultaneously (Y-connection).

Key factors to consider when selecting your SMART BRAKE kit:

– Total weight of vehicle + user
– Scope of use, e.g. speed, steepness of tracks, etc
– Disc brakes will normally have shorter stopping distance than rim brakes
