Take a great quality cycling jacket – Dupont Teflon®-coated rainproof and breathable fabric, all round ventilation, taped seams – and then embed a toal of 23 integrated high intensity LEDs, both front (white) and back (red) to increase your visibility. Then add motion-activated, self-cancelling turn indicators – these are completely intuitive – you simply raise your arm to activate them, and they self cancel – so you do what you normally do when cycling. Power the jacket with a USB-rechargeable battery with up to 30 hours between charges. Make the electronics washable – you simply detatch and remove the battery first.
The result is a jacket which siginficantly increases your visibility and that was recently named a 2015 CES Innovation Awards Honoree by the Consumer Electronics Association. Visijax makes a range of award-winning cycle jackets designed to increase your visibility through the integration of washable electronics – embedded LEDs, front and back, and motion-sensing, self-cancelling turn indicators powered by a USB-rechargeable battery. Available in two colours – high viz vellow, and black, and in six sizes from XS through to XXL.
