After a very successful trial run, London based company BLAZE rolls out its signature Laserlight across all London ‘Borris’ bikes.
Combining a high-powered LED light with a green laser that projects a bicycle symbol 6 meters in front of the cyclist, the Laserlight is perhaps the safest bicycle light out there.The laserlight effectively projects a green bicycle symbol into the road ahead drawing attention to the cyclist who might otherwise be obscured from vision.
You can find more about the award winning laserlight and other BLAZE products such as the Burner at their website.
Distilled to It’s elements, we like it. YV.
As the warm weather moves in we can expect another year of increased bicycle sales and people experiencing the joys of peddle power for commuting, shopping, racing and recreation. Unfortunately, this increase in popularity has also created a surge in cycle theft. So, it’s good then that the trusty bike lock is getting a smart makeover. The team at SKYLOCK have squeezed smart and functional technology into the standard U-lock (or D-lock for some people). Integrating your smartphone allows optional keyless access, powered by a small solar panel, and antitheft alerts which are stimulated by a built-in accelerometer. The same accelerometer also knows if you have been in a crash and can coordinate with the emergency services via your phone to ensure you are looked after in such an event. They are not cheep but much less than we expected them to be. You can pre-order them now to save 35% which gets you the lock for just $159 (approximately £107). They also have a great promo video which can be found here.
