    About us

    Our Mission

    Skillion is creating a user experience revolution for bikes. We believe all riders should be more connected, aware, and secure on and off the bike. We are building the platform to accomplish all these goals.

    Our History

    Skillion started in 2017 by developing our own line of ebikes in Australia. By creating bikes, we discovered our passion for a better rider experience. We began to develop a series of products that makes all bikes more connected. We called our platform the Connected Dashboard. We sold our first Connected Dashboard in 2018 which provided advanced security features for a fleet of bikes in Australia. With that success we moved to the USA in 2019, raised funds and developed our newest Connected Dashboard: HAWKeye!

    Frequently asked questions

    Yes, the HAWKeye works with regular bicycles that are not ebikes. We recommend you purchase the Power Kit as this extends the useful range and time of use.

    We have plans to fully integrate with many of the leading ebikes and ebike motors. The video shows the HAWKeye working with the Bafang mid-drive motors. For other ebikes we are designing an Interface Module that you can purchase to suit your ebike. Contact us via the email address on our website for more details about coming motor and ebike interfaces.

    Yes, but not all kits are compatible.

    At the time of writing this, we have developed the interface with the Bafang mid-drive conversion kits. You can replace the display and button controller for these kits with the HAWKeye solution. It works great! 

    We are working with a partner to supply the ebike in the video – or a later model fitted with the HAWKeye. Contact us via the email address on our website.

    HAWKeye will only operate fully and properly if you have a cellular network subscription. For instance the cellular connection means access all the remote features for security like remote control, remote viewing and telematics while you are not with your bike. Also, the subscription keeps you up to date with all the latest features. We are committed to continual development of new and improved features.  When you receive your kit the subscription will commence the following month and last for as long as you want it to.

    The NIGHTvision is a separate camera integrated into the Tail Unit in addition to the regular wide-angle camera. It detects wavelengths of light in the thermal range 800-1400 nm rather than 400-750nm our eyes or regular video cameras normally see. The thermal camera detects heat radiating from warmer objects. If a vehicle is completely dark, or there are occlusions like fog or smoke, or the headlights are dazzling to a regular camera, a thermal camera may still illuminate the scene by sensing the heat radiating from the object.

    The Mobile App (called TOOLbox) comes with every HAWKeye kit. It is your portable portal to your HAWKeye system and your account. It enables you to connect to the HAWKeye device on your bike while you are remote. This means you can activate the SENTRY alarm,  trigger remote controls like sirens and remotely view what is happening around your bike while you are away and much more – 24/7!

    When your kit arrives you will be directed to the Apple store and Android Play store where you can download the TOOLbox App on your handheld device.

    The Desktop App (called WORKbench) comes with every HAWKeye kit. It is the computer portal to your HAWKeye system and your account. It enables you to connect to the HAWKeye device on your bike while you are remote. It is similar to your Mobile (TOOLbox) App. WORKbench has advanced features like creating a fleet of bikes for your friends and family and setting up Geofencing boundaries that trigger an alert if the bike moves beyond that boundary

    When your kit arrives you will be offered a link to the WORKbench that you can log in to.

    Yes, The HAWKeye system has many ways to add more to your ride. 

    There are 2 relay controlled solid state relays built in. These can be configured for 5V or the ebike’s 48/36V. Up to 300 mA of current can be drawn and these can switch on devices like a siren (as seen in the video) or any other device you would like to control for example lights, loud speakers, cameras etc. To control these the TOOLbox and the WORKbench are equipped with 2 “Magic Buttons” that mean you can activate these devices from anywhere you like. (NB: The siren in the video is not included in the kit)

    The Touch Display is equipped with a Bluetooth interface. This means you can connect many regular Bluetooth devices to the system for example a Bluetooth high-powered front light or Bluetooth mechanical bike lock. 

    Contact us for more details about how these and other devices can be added.

     

    A speed sensor or cadence sensor can be added in place of the solid state relay connections. 

    However, we prefer our riders to not use these devices but rather use GPS for speed and our inbuilt Bike Computer software to determine the pedal cadence.  This saves weight , costs and complexity. NB: This software is under development and involves advanced techniques like AI and machine learning which may not be completed at the time of first shipping.

    HAWKeye can operate from anywhere in the world. However, a cellular connection is required for full capability. See the “(full list of HAWKeye availability)” section above in this FAQ.

    We plan to ramp mass production as soon as possible after our successful Kickstarter. This will mean we can begin shipping in Early 2022.
