About

Simply put, with the latest technology and motion detection, beSEENS are the most advanced and easiest to use cycling safety glove in the world.

With a completed design and a rigorously tested final model your support will enable us to move to full manufacture and deliver beSEENS as a finished retail product.

 Working from the very beginning on the design principle "keep it simple" what we have built are the worlds most advanced, yet the easiest to use cycling safety gloves on the market. 

To get to this point we also spent a long time speaking to friends, family, cyclists we knew, cyclists we didn't and a whole bunch of other people about cycling and road safety. 

From this we drew up beSEENS requirements based on the features you'd like to see and how we've made these work in the easiest way possible.

  • beSEENS be Different. With motion detection, beSEENS signal as you do leaving you 100% to concentrate on the road, there are no distractions, and that is very different!
  • beSEENS be Easy. With beSEENS doing all the work for you, they are as easy as riding a bike.

  • beSEENS be Seen. Our power pods hold 7 'Super Bright' LEDs visible to 30m during the day and 100m at night.
  • beSEENS be Powerful. You have an extended battery which last up to 7 hours continuous use. We even supply a dual charging cable so beSEENS can be charged together. Both are always ready - it's safer and easy for you.

  • beSEENS for People. Available in various colours, 2 styles (racing and urban) and 3 sizes. They are exceptionally comfortable (tested many many times) and great for all riding styles and conditions.
  • beSEENS be Clean. It can get dirty and sweaty out there so beSEENS are machine washable and the power pods are 100% waterproof.

When we came up with the idea for beSEENS the first thing we did was to look at the market to see what else was out there. Though there were some products, what we found out however was really quite surprising..

Some of the many designs and prototypes.

Thanks! 

Thanks for your time, and importantly thanks for your your support. We really hope you enjoyed using beSEENS as much as we have making them.

We would also like to thank Linus Wilson and Beautiful Change for the music they agreed to let us use. Two great songs for which we very much appreciate your support.

Risks and challenges

There are problems encountered during manufacturing:

During the design stages we spoke with a number or different companies to produce. The one we are working with is an expert in this type of production and the management of the supply chain to support it.

To further minimise any risk there is a site visit scheduled in the 2nd week of April for our final quality approval of beSEENS as ready for manufacturing and to review the production line and quality control functions. We will also be present and on-sight when production runs for this campaign.

However we recognise other issues may occur, though nothing that can't be resolved and we would keep you up to date as part of the campaign updates.
