The Bycle isn't just an iPhone case that can be mounted to the handlebars of your bike.

The software utilizes the GPS and barometer of the iPhone to track distance, speed, route, ascent, descent and travel time.

More exciting, though, is the unique prism design, which lets you use your phone's camera to capture forward-facing videos and photos as you ride.

The app can combine the photos and videos you capture to create a shareable time-lapse video of your ride. You can even go back and revisit segments of your ride through the video capture feature.

It will be available in two models, the S-Mount and E-Mount. The two models are nearly identical, although the E-Mount features a built-in 3,000mAh battery pack to recharge your phone.
