Ride-On Introduces the Next Generation of its LED Smart Cap Tire Pressure Monitoring System

LED Smart Cap Version 2 is more efficient, durable, and easier to use; it's the latest from the company devoted to improving safety and efficiency on America's highways

LOS ANGELES, March 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As a growing force in the field of automotive safety and performance products, Ride-On is a company on the move. Its newest step forward is the second generation edition of its extremely popular LED Smart Cap Tire Pressure Monitoring System. The LED Smart Cap Version 2 is stronger and more durable, while being smaller, more user friendly, and more energy efficient than its predecessors.

Just as Ride-On tire sealant has made countless vehicles more fuel efficient while preventing blow-outs, the LED Smart Cap Version 2 increases fuel efficiency and safety by effectively monitoring air pressure. As with the earlier version of the product, as tire pressure drops by approximately 4 psi, a blinking red light is activated, notifying drivers to check their tire pressure and inflate their tires as appropriate.  However, Version 2 adds a number of improvements. These include:

  • Greater resistance to shock, vibrations, and high and low temperatures;
  • 12% smaller size and 17% lighter; the next generation Smart Cap is only conspicuous when you when you need to see it!
  • Powered by a single, easily replaceable, Li-Ion (lithium ion) battery with a longer 5 year shelf life.

When you add all these features to the previously existing features of the LED Smart Cap, you have a product that is easily the best of its type. The Ride-On LED Smart Cap is self-calibrating – the same cap can be used on tires ranging from 10 to 70 psi. A Smart Cap also automatically compensates for ambient temperature changes to prevent false alarms, and it comes complete with an integrated anti-theft device. Low tire pressure alert lights remain blinking for as long as 600 hours (25 days) to provide drivers with ample warning; low battery warnings will also remain active for 100 hours (over four days). Naturally, the Smart Cap remains an outstanding complement to Ride-On Tire Protection System (TPS), which prevents blow-outs by automatically filling-in holes and which has become a standard part of the safety and performance regimen of countless drivers.

Monitoring tire pressure is no small matter. A reduction in air pressure that gradually decreases to an excessive degree can reduce gas mileage and overall automotive performance. Even more importantly, keeping tires properly inflated is one of the best means there is to prevent a dangerous blow-out. The LED Smart Cap Version 2 is there to help you protect your tires, your car and, of course, the safety of everyone inside. Whether you drive a standard automobile/SUV, motorcycle, ATV, or just about any other vehicle, the Ride-On LED Smart Cap is here to help you get the most safety and efficiency from your driving experience.
