Bicygnals’ gear starts at the top: on our heads. True to its name, the Angel helmet creates a halo of light around the wearer’s head. It has a 360-degree band of light that’s intentionally positioned at a car driver’s eye level. The helmet is adjustable, it has flashing and non-flashing modes, and it’s powered by a retractable USB charger (no batteries required).
For your bike, Bicygnals makes front- and rear-mounted indicator lights that act as turn signals so cars know where you’re going. Particularly at night, when arm signals are harder to see, the indicators help get the message to drivers that you’re changing direction. The lights are battery operated, and the front and rear signals communicate with each other wirelessly so they stay in synch.
Bicycling is great exercise, easy on the environment, and helps reduce urban congestion. But many riders feel vulnerable riding in traffic, especially at night. Bicygnals’ light-up helmet and indicator lights aren’t a cure-all, but they increase cyclists’ visibility and make it easier for riders to signal their turns to drivers. It’s extra defense, which benefits everyone who’s sharing the road.
