Bontrager Transmitr MicroRemote

  1. Twist anticlockwise to open the remote. Keep the top half assembled.
  2. Pull out the battery activation tab.
  3. Twist the remote clockwise to close.

A note about pairing
Up to four ANT+ compatible lights can be paired to the Transmitr MicroRemote in a single pairing session. Once in pairing mode, the remote will automatically search for each activated light, to pair one at a time, in sequence. The pairing process is the same for all ANT+ compatible lights, regardless of whether it’s a front light or a rear light.

NOTE: All lights must be paired in the same continuous procedure. If you choose to add a light later, you will need to pair each light again at that time.

  1. Before starting, place the remote and all lights within 15 cm (6 inches) of each other.

        NOTE: Move 4.5 metres (15 feet) from other ANT+ compatible lights to prevent accidental pairing.

  1. For all lights you wish to pair, turn on each light then quickly turn it off again.
    NOTE: After completing this step, do not press the power button on the light again until pairing is complete.
  1. Press and hold the button on the remote for at least 15 seconds. Position your thumb on the remote button so you can see the red light flash under the button. Release the button when the green/red light begins to flash.

NOTES: Upon entering the pairing process, all previously stored pairing is removed.
If a light is accidentally paired, start the pairing process again.

  1. While the remote searches for a light, the LED flashes red. When the remote finds a light, the LED will change from a red flash to a green flash and the found light will turn on.
  2. While the remote is still flashing green, single-press the button on the remote. The LED will begin flashing red again to find another available light to confirm you have paired the correct light.
  3. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for each light to pair.
  4. To exit pairing, single-press the button while the remote is flashing red. If pairing to 4 lights, the remote will exit pairing mode automatically after the fourth light is paired.

       NOTE: Waiting at any time for 10 seconds will also end the pairing process automatically.

A small ANT+ and Bluetooth wireless remote that’s easy to pair and makes on-bar control of bicycle lights a breeze. The versatile remote mounts to both road or MTB bars and can be paired with up to 4 lights.

IMPORTANT: To use the Transmitr MicroRemote, you must have ANT+ compatible lights mounted on your bicycle.

Compatible Bontrager lights:
• Ion Pro RT
• Ion 200 RT
• Ion 450 RT
• Flare RT
• Ion 800 RT
• Ion 700 RT
• Ion 350 RT
• Other ANT+ compatible lights

To set up any other light, please refer to the manual that came with your light.

There are two phases to this installation: pairing the lights to the remote and attaching the lights and remote to the bike. It is easiest to pair the lights to the remote before attaching it to the bike.

  1. Double-click the remote button to turn on all paired lights.
  2. Press and hold the remote button for 1 second to turn off the light(s).

When the Transmitr MicroRemote is used while lights are being used in auto mode with a Garmin, the remote will take over changing the mode to individual on the Garmin. If a user wants auto mode to function again, they’ll need to select it again on the Garmin.
The remote will recognise available lights within 30 m (100 ft) as long as there is a clean line of sight.

  • All lights will require a double-click to turn on.
  • Once on, a single-click will change the mode of the front light, depending on the light type. A long press will turn the lights off if they are on.
  • The front light will operate in two configurations: High Mode Control or Mode Selection. The default out-of-the-box experience is High Mode Control.
  • The rear lights will only turn on and off.

Each light will turn on to the last mode it was in when the remote turned the light off.

High mode control
If there is no saved mode, the light will turn on to LOW. Subsequent button presses will alternate the light between HIGH and the previous mode.

Mode selection
By default, if there is no saved state, the lights will turn on to LOW. After this, each button press will advance the lights through the mode list.
Example: High (click) -> Medium (click) -> Low (click) -> Night Flash (click) -> Day Flash

Change front light control mode
Hold down the button for 8 seconds. If you release the button between 8 and 15 seconds, the remote will switch to the new control mode. It will flash to indicate which mode the remote is in: Red = High Mode Control; Green = Mode Selection.
NOTE: If you do not release the button before 15 seconds, the remote will enter pairing mode.

Rear lights
The default setting is LOW. To change the saved mode, turn on the light. Use the button on the rear lights to change the mode, then turn off the system using the remote.
Can’t find light
If you are attempting to interact with a light and the remote can’t find it, the remote will flash red for 2 seconds. And you must repeat the pairing process.
Low battery
If the battery on one of your lights has fallen below 5%, the remote lights up solid red for 2 seconds. This will happen only when turning the system on, or turning the system off.

Attach the remote

The following attachment methods allow you to install the Mirco Remote on a variety of handlebar configurations. The strap will wrap securely around diameters as small as 22.2 mm up to the hoods on a road brake/shift lever.

  • 22.2 mm diameter near the grips.

  • 31.8 mm at the centre of a road bar.

  • Aero section of a road bar.

  • Below the brake/shift lever hood on a road bike.

  • Optional: Use the bar-end plug adaptor for the end of the handlebar installation. Sold separately. PN W588932.

The battery is not rechargeable. It uses a coin-type CR1632 battery.
