Wearable Safety Lights

Night Light

Early morning and evening hours are often the only time busy people can fit in a run or a bike ride. For others, that's when they walk to and from work or stroll with the dog. Either way it’s dark, and low visibility can make it a dangerous time to be out and about.

Night owls and 4id founders, Ron Biron and Rodger Bailey, strive to keep active people safe at dawn, dusk, or late at night with PowerSpurz and PowerArmz light bands. The bands are a great addition to regular exercise gear and slip on easily with no extra
bulk. Simply wrap the Spurz around the heel of your sneaker or the Armz around your bicep, and toggle between flashing or continuous light options with the press of a button. Depending on the mode, the two replaceable coin batteries can last approximately 80-100 hours.

Weatherproof too, these ultra bright LEDs are ideal for any kind of weather.

    @Ron

    I am wondering if you ever had any trouble with the PowerSpurz coming off the shoe. Does the grip of the device weaken with time?

    Thanks,

    LN

    @Lise good question, we have not had issues with the Spurz coming off. They were designed specifically to adhere to heels of shoes. The device does not weaken over time. Hope that helps...

    @Ron Thanks for the quick response - A couple more questions... has anyone on the design team worn the arm band around their ankle, so that the light is facing forward to alert oncoming cars? Did you administer a test where you are the driver, and as the driver, can you see the heel lights on a runner coming towards you?

    Sorry.. but I don't understand: When you walk or run on the road you're supposed to run against traffic. How are the lights on the backs of your shoes supposed to alert drivers who are driving towards you that you are there? Personally, I hate wearing bands on my arms so the arm bands are out of the question. Do you have to wear the heel bands on your heels? What kind of gripping material is used for the heel band? I see that the heel band applied pressure to the shoe to stay on, but does each end have some kind of rubber or silicone on the inside for extra grip? Have you tested these on long runs, 8+miles, so that you know they won't fall off?

    @erika I'm not sure if I phrased one of my questions right - Can you where the heel band on the front of your shoe, where the laces tie? I do a lot of road running and the cars I'm most worried about are the ones who are coming at me from the front since runners/walkers are advised to be on the left side of the road.

    @erika good questions Erika... The spurz will only fit on the heel of the shoes. I have personally been training for a 1/2 marathon & I run at night, I've been recently running in the 6-9 mile range & have not experienced any issues so far.

    How exactly do these attach to shoes? And would they work on cycling shoes?

  • Ron
    Ron – Special Guest
    4/2/2014 12:52 PM

    @Kim hi Kim, it is imperative to place the spurz horizontally on the heel of the shoe. The spurz do adhere well to cycling shoes. We sell our products in many bike shops across the country...

    Is the power source renewable or would I need to purchase a new band when the lights go out?

  • Ron
    Ron – Special Guest
    4/2/2014 1:10 PM

    @Dorothy Hi Dorothy, the power source is a watch battery & after it runs out, it is replaceable w/a watch battery that can be purchased at any general store or pharmacy (Walgreens, Target, etc)

    I notice briefly in your demo a dog running toward the camera, obviously wearing one of these devices. For me, that's a highly desirable item: a collar of some sort for my dogs, whose sizes vary from very small to a 100 pound German Shepherd. Whatcha got?

    @Kristene good question, Kristene. Our Power Armz arm bands have an adjustable band that allows people to wear the band to their proper size. Many people have told us they have used the power armz for their dogs. Hope that helps

    I have purchased other products that say they are good for any weather only to have them turn out to be not so waterproof. I live where there is extremely poor drainage and often find myself leaping (sometimes not so successfully) puddles. My question is, just how waterproof are the spurz? If they turn out to not be so waterproof, what is the return/replacement policy?

    Hi Melinda,

    From 4id:

    "Our products are built to sustain being out in the elements in inclement weather. They work well in snow, rain, mud, but they should not be submerged into water for more than a minute. Being exposed for more than 1 minute will damage the product."

    Hi Jane,

    The lights come with batteries and they are replaceable. They use standard camera batteries (CR2032).

    very neat idea but you need to sell them as a pair. and not for $40. more like $30 and i would buy a pair for the shoes for my granddaughter as she likes to play night games in the summer
