SMART BRAKE Technology documentation and FAQ

The brake technology consists of three key features:

  • SMART BRAKE remotes for wireless control of the brakes, through radio frequency. The brake trigger has 80 points, ensuring a “seamless” brake force adjustment. The remotes is either mounted on the bike handlebars. Mounted on the ski pole, or carried in your hand.
    For the ski pole remote, see available pole models.
  • Hydraulic pump controlling disc brake pads through calipers; similar solution you find on most bikes. The pump is powered by a rechargeable battery (USB), ensuring 50+ hours of use fully charged.
  • The brake force can be customized to the users’ preferences (weight, race profile, etc) through the RS Safety App. This enables same brake unit on different applications.

RollerSafe makes no compromise on safety and design. The brake technology is based on dual brake system (redundancy principle). The technology has been tested extensively during 6 years, both in custom-built test rigs, and outdoor in all weather conditions. The electronics are protected with sealed covers, enabling for use in rain, salty conditions and rough terrain. All components have been thoroughly selected and tested for material tolerance.

RollerSafe has received several design awards for our state-of-the-art products.

Why SMART BRAKE

Per today we have 2000 brake units around the world which has Smart Brake solution implemented in our rollerski daily to use in different environments.

If running short on power during 15-10% left of the battery the system will automatically start a smooth braking before it’s no power left. The RS Smart Brake Technology has been tested extensively in our test facilities and on the road since 2010. 

SMART BRAKE Technology is invented in Norway, by a small team of experienced industrial designers, mechanical engineers and software developers. They all share the same passion for healthcare, sports and high-quality products. 

Our products are assembled, tested and shipped from Norway RollerSafe headquarter in Son. Our test facilities and workshop are among the most advanced within the sports of roller skiing

Metal interfere and block the wireless signals, that is why the SMART BRAKE series are mostly made out of ABS (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene). Parts that is exposed are glass-filled to endure more. 

Brake controls

SMART BRAKE can be controlled remotely as parental/companion control,  

Brake controller for remote control of SMART BRAKE, up to 15m radius to stop the brake unit.  

(P) is a parking/panic brake function which lock/stop the wheelchair, trike, handbike or bike. To unlock the brake, press the (brake) twice to ulock 

(Brake) hold it in the button to slow down the speed and release the button to increase the speed of the vehicle (wheelchair, handbike, trike, bike) 

Type of battery in the remote control are with 3.7V 190mAh, Li-Polymer. 

Parking brake To activate the parking brake, push the handle away from you to activate the brake. When parking brake is activated, BC lights up a constant red light. 

Braking lights -The braking lights on brake unit will be activated when the lever is activated for brake/parking brake mode. P-brake light will be switched off after 20 sec to save battery.  

Require 10 % of your hand strength to use the handle to stop the vehicle wheelchair, bike or trikes.  

Remote trigger is adaptable with most Swix 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 are with CR2032 (3.7V 190mAh, Li-Polymer). 

One Smart Brake unit takes 100 kg per units, our recommendation is:  

Trikes: 2units (200kg), including the weight of the bike and the driver composed.  

Bike: 1-unit (100kg) framework of the bike and the driver combined. 

Wheelchair: 1 unit (100kg) mounted on FreeWheel combined with a wheelchair for ultimate brake response.

PAIRING

To pair up different triggers to the brake unit its important the brake unit is completely off the reason is the one who has not been a paired-up jump over to the unit who has been paired up already.   

 If you use 1 brake unit and 1 or more brake controls  
1. The brake unit needs to be turned off to start the process. (If on, push the Bluetooth button one time)
2. On the master BU, push and hold in the Bluetooth button until the LED starts a repetitive flashing. The light signal indicates that the unit is ready to start synchronizing.
3. Place the brake control to be used close to the brake unit. i) Squeeze the lever/button on the control and hold. When BC and BU are connected the light signal will disappear.
4. Start up the system by pushing the Bluetooth button once.
5. To connect multiple brake controls, repeat the proses.

If you use 2 brake units and 1 or more brake controls
One of the units are master and one is following the main unit.  

1. The brake units need to be turned off to start the process. (If on, push the Bluetooth button one time)
2. On the master BU, push and hold in the Bluetooth button until the LED starts a repetitive flashing. The light signal indicates that the unit is ready to start synchronizing.
3. On the clone BU, push and hold in the Bluetooth button until the LED starts a repetitive flashing. The light signal indicates that the unit is ready to start synchronizing.
4. The clone will automatically connect to the main brake unit. When the brake units are connected the light signal will disappear.
5. Start up the system by pushing the Bluetooth button once on both units.
6. To connect multiple brake units, repeat the proses


NOTE
 
To pair up different triggers to the brake unit its important the brake unit is completely off the reason is the one who has not been a paired-up jump over to the unit who has been paired up already.   

TROUBLESHOOTING

The adapter is powered by a rechargeable battery (USB), ensuring 50+ hours of use fully charged. With 100% battery capacity (7 hours charging) 

Remote 

The RS Remote use CR2032 batteries, with an expected lifetime of 1 year. Make sure the remotes are stored without the trigger activated, as activation drain the battery. 

Try to change the charger cable and see if this helps. 
Try to use another micro USB charger to make sure that it’s not the charger that’s the problem.

Fully charged will give you a constant green light. 
Push on/off button for at least 3 sec. 
If your product still will not turn on, please contact us. 

The technology use components with CE-certification to ensure no interference with other power sources or 

 transmitters. 

The brake unit can you clean with water and we recommend using a cloth and mild soap to clean the product. Do not use high pressure water on the handle on the vehicle the brake as this will damage the it and harm / create leakage in the control box.
