Even with cyclists increasing in the US daily, riders still face enormous challenges in recognition and safety from drivers, particularly at night. Designer Mitchell Silva looks to address one aspect of this with his brilliant after-market handlebar illumination system. They even include turn signals!
The Glo-Bars is a very clever handlebar system that integrates rechargeable LED lights to the bars of the cycle. These lights not only illuminate the track for the cyclist but also make them visible to oncoming traffic. The lights double up as turn signal indicators and also emit red light for traffic behind the cyclist. By simply customizing the handles, we have a safer cycling system in place!
