CYCLING SAFETY FAILINGS
Although it’s not the law, there’s a well established correlation between lights and cyclist road safety. While it’s fairly well known that more lights are safer than one, what’s not so well known is that lights higher up a cyclist’s body are more effective for safety than lower down on the bike. While it’s increasingly more common to see head mounted lights, it still is only a single light, and many cyclists don’t like the way it looks.
Moreover, a high percentage of accidents occur when a cyclist is changing direction. Sticking an arm to indicate this was perhaps sufficient in the 1950s, but in the modern era, it’s far from ideal. If you value your personal safety, you can’t do better than the Visijax Commuter Active-LED Cycling Jacket.
23 HIGH INTENSITY LEDs
The VISIJAX ‘Commuter’ jacket jacket has over 23 23 high-intensity waterproof machine-washable LED lights built into the jacket itself. White at the front chest, Red at the back tail, and amber indicators on the front & back arms! Yes, really!
These not only make for unparalleled visibility on the road, but the touch-free motion-activated indicators (triggered automatically when you raise an arm to signal a turn), which provides a clear signal to motorists of your intentions, but also users report that the motorists are far more inclined to give way to the cyclists. This may be explained by the subconscious triggers in the mind of the motorist, as they only ever otherwise see bright flashing indicators on a motorised vehicle, and they respond instinctively in a manner than is different with normal cyclists.
Cyclists also report a vast greater feeling of security with the jackets, than with the non-illuminated variety. Basically, you’ll never feel invisible on the roads again. See full specs below.
Visijax believe in going above and beyond the bare essentials of road safety. They’ve developed the most visible cycling jacket on the road with patented award-winning technology. This jacket was the technology finalist at the prestigious global CES Awards in Las Vegas, and has been reviewed all around the world (see our videos above)
100% WATERPROOF LED’s
All 23 LEDs are 100% waterproof and machine washable. The torso LEDs have a fast or slow strobe as well as a constant on or off function, which you can select on the fly very easily by a concealed button on the jacket itself.
THE BUILT-IN INDICATORS
This is the real masterstroke of genius. Simply raise your arm to indicate as you would normally and the built in amber LEDs (3 front, 3 back on each upper arm) flash to display your intentions to the traffic around you. The indicators switch off automatically after ten seconds, allowing you to safely complete your turn with both hands on the handlebars, the entire process is controlled by your natural body movement.
REMOVEABLE USB-RECHARGEABLE BATTERY
All the electronics are 100% waterproof, machine-washable, and powered by a single USB-rechargeable battery good for up to 20 hours continuous use. The battery is easily removed for charging. No fuss, no messy cables: just charge it up and get riding!
THE JACKET ITSELF…
Just as significantly is the quality of the actual garment. A highly breathable and lightweight 100% waterproof Teflon-coated fabric with taped seams, all the electronics are also waterproof and 100% machine-washable. This is essentially a very high quality cycling jacket on electronic steroids!
