Brighter Bikes is a forthcoming cycling-tech startup from the Traffic Angels team.
LUMA-iD has developed a bicycle indicator safety system, retrofitting onto all bicycles with high customisation.
Most of the team at LUMA commute to the south London office on their bikes, so we all know the need for a reliable and easy to use indicator system. The pack contains everything you need to personalise your setup, consisting of:
- An indicator control point strapped to your handlebars, easily removed from the bars and helmet with a rubber strap, so they can be charged and secured,
- Two slimline brake buttons slid onto your brake handles,
- A wireless indicator light attached to your helmet, bag, bicycle, or wherever else you would like.
Product tooling has been made and first samples received, so we hope to have the first Brighter Bikes product out very soon. Watch this space: http://brighterbikes.co.uk/
During our industrial design process, we collaborated with electronics developers Winter & Smith to create the most compact and powerful system possible. The housings are all waterproofed and IP tested to survive sudden downpours, and the indicator lights run at super-bright 300 lumens.
