Mantis is a ground-breaking new electronic tire temperature sensor, designed specifically for motorcycles. Using a sophisticated infrared sensor, the Mantis reads and displays to the rider front and rear tire surface temperatures in real time.
Tire surface temperature is a crucial variable in maximizing the tire's ability to adhere to the road surface. Traction is extremely important on a motorcycle, for safety and performance. Knowing the tire's temperature in real time allows the rider to make adjustments which will keep the tires operating in their optimal temperature range. Riding with your tires at their optimal temperature increases grip and extends the tire's life.
Installing the Mantis digital tire temperature sensor is a simple matter, requiring only a few hand tools, and can be installed by an experienced technician in less than 30 minutes.
Maintenance on the Mantis is fast and easy; prior to riding on the track, use a clean cotton swab to remove dirt and debris from the lens on each sensor.
The Mantis non-contact infrared sensor utilizes a 17-bit analog-to-digital converter and a powerful digital signal processing unit.
With a resolution of 0.02degC, the Mantis sensor is a highly precise measuring instrument.
A proprietary lens serves to create a wide-angle field of view for the sensor to observe infrared radiation emitted from the tire's surface.
Additionally, the lens protects the sensor from being damaged by road debris.
Encapsulating the senor's electronic component assembly is a durable injection-molded polycarbonate housing.
The Mantis display unit houses a glare-free liquid crystal display and a processor capable of converting raw data from the thermal sensor into valuable human-readable information, in real time.
Programmable alerts can be easily set, and are useful in alerting the rider when his / her tire temperatures exceed the desired range.
The Mantis is not bike-specific and will fit most modern motorcycles.
For use on multiple motorcycles, additional wire harnesses are available (sold separately) to facilitate swapping the Mantis between motorcycles quickly and easily.
