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 is not bike-specific and will fit most modern motorcycles. For use on multiple motorcycles,
additional wire harnesses are available for purchase, to facilitate swapping the Mantis
between motorcycles quickly and easily.
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 0.02°C, the Mantis sensor is a highly precise
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
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.
