About this project

  

 

People use bicycles for different reasons. For some of us, it’s our passion, our lifestyle. For others, it’s a form of commuting, exercise or sporting equipment. No matter what reason it is, we share the same needs: Freedom and Safety, which align parallel to one another. If we look at it from a different perspective, it’s actually our freedom which needs protecting. 

Bike riding is a lot of fun but accidents happen. We all have a right to share the roads although it’s our duty of care to increase our visibility to others.

 

Cyclists must take extra precautions when they ride. We often share roadways with vehicles, other cyclists and pedestrians, which can cause a host of incidents.

There are a disproportionate number of cycling accidents caused primarily from two contributing factors. Firstly; motorist distractions allow people to lose focus with dangerous and reckless driving. Secondly; Motorists have trouble seeing bicycle riders.

This is where having a high quality bike light is important

Bicycle lights increases your visibility to others using the roads, reducing potential accidents.

 The most common front bike lights are placed on the handlebars or stem, while rear bike lights are placed on seat posts or saddles.These lighting types might be insufficient for cycling safety as they create blind spots and are not vividly seen from each angle.

Interactivity and visibility are the key aspects to creating safe bike lighting. Our design team developed a more effective lighting solution, which maximizes visibility.

 

 

  

 

Designed to illuminate the extensive surface areas of the wheels. 

Wheely™ gives 360º visibility in horizontal and vertical planes

creating unique spherical and stylish lighting to enhance visualization.
