Cycliq Fly 12 CE action camera review

Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Cycliq Fly 12 lets you record high definition video as well as providing a front light that’s bright enough for daytime running or use as your primary light source at night. There are plenty of clever features, but it’s a bit fiddly to operate without using the companion app and the unit is quite bulky too.
