  • 1 x Fly6 Generation 3
  • 1 x Cycliq 32GB microSD card
  • 1 x Seat  post mount
  • 1 x Standard seat post strap
  • 1 x Aero seat post strap

  • 1 x Aero seat post adaptor
  • 1 x USB to USB-C cable
  • 1 x Safety tether

Step 2: Insert your SD card

Your Fly6 3 comes with a 32GB microSD card pre-installed.

Your Fly6 3 MUST have a microSD card installed to operate.

You can insert a microSD card into the microSD card slot of your Fly6 and press in gently until locked in place.

Please ensure the notch on the microSD card is pointing upwards towards the top of the Fly6, as illustrated here.

To remove your microSD card, gently press down on the microSD card until it releases from the microSD card slot.

Note: We highly recommend formatting your microSD card regularly. This will ensure your Fly6 operates at peak performance and guarantee your ride is always recorded. More information of how to format your microSD card is available here.

Step 3: Charge your unit

Charging your Fly6 battery

Your Fly6 comes partially charged. Before using it for the first time, please charge the Fly6 fully.

To charge:

  • Connect your Fly6 to a USB power adaptor (not supplied) using the supplied USB cable.
  • The indicator light will illuminate red showing the Fly6 is charging.
  • The indicator light will illuminate green when the Fly6 is fully charged.

You can charge your Fly6 using the USB cable provided and your computer however, this will significantly reduce the rate of charge. For the quickest charge, use a USB power adaptor that supports USB fast charge (5V @ 2.1A).

Note: The Fly6 is ‘fast charge’ compatible and accepts up to 2.1 amps. Accordingly, the time to charge from flat to fully charged varies from 1.5 to 6 hours depending on the method of charging, I.e. mains power USB at 2.1 amps (not supplied) or computer USB (at as little as 0.1A). Battery life will diminish over time and charge cycles.

Battery level indicator

When turning on your Fly6, an audible battery status will sound, alerting you to the current battery level. This will indicate whether you have enough power for your next ride. See below for audible notification guide:

4 rapid high pitched beeps = 75% to 100% charged

3 rapid high pitched beeps = 50% to <75% charged

2 rapid high pitched beeps = 25% to <50% charged

1 rapid high pitched beep = 12% to <25% charged

3 long high pitched beeps = Less than 12% charged

Step 4: Download the CycliqPlus Mobile App

Download the CycliqPlus app onto your mobile and pair your device to regularly sync date and time.

  • Launch the CycliqPlus app
  • Power your device on to activate Bluetooth
  • Search and Connect to your device (Note: connecting the device to the app automatically updated the date and time)
