BrightsparkGlobal have announced the launch of an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign for its first product. With on-road safety for cyclists as a priority, the company has been working on developing the most innovative bicycle headlights and indicators product. One notable feature of the product is itsinclusion of two very bright lights that are located at the edge of each handlebar. Today, the crowdfunding campaign was opened, and it is expected to draw in cyclists from around the world.
"Our unique product will make it so cyclists and their intentions can be seen a lot easier by motorists," said Dominic Walters, Founder of Brightspark. "Due to our innovative laser design, people all around the rider will be able to know where the cyclist is going."
The red roadway lasers are one of the most distinctive features of Brightspark. Each unit projects bright red arrows on the road, indicating when and in which direction the cyclist is turning. At the same time, the product's blinker set flashes an orange light on the front and back of the relevant unit. This allows people in front of and behind the cyclists to know the his or her intentions. All functions are easy to use, with reachable buttons placed right on the handle grips, which may be controlled simply by the user's thumbs. Once a function hasbeen set, the grip will vibrate, letting the rider know that it has been activated. This allows the cyclist to keep his or her eyes focused on riding, instead of having to look down to make sure the function has started. After a turn is completed, the unit will remind the rider if the blinker is still on by vibrating again.
Cyclists will find the headlight and indicator light set easy to use, as it simply attaches to virtually any type of handlebar using quick release grips. Once a rider is finished withthe journey, the units may be easily detached and packed up, preventing theft of the valuable accessory. With a USB connection, the rechargeable units do not require continual battery replacement. A full charge allows the units to be utilized for five hours or more.
BrightsparkGlobal is offering top notch prizes to those who help the company release its first product. Visit this Brightspark preview link to become a supporter of the crowdfunding campaign that will bring advanced road safety for cyclists.
