Cyclists are often most prone to accidents when there are no separate cycling paths as they do not have signals and have to depend on manual signals by the cyclist. But not any more, here is Zackees, which is a gloves for cyclists with signals for left and right hand. These gloves are a unique fusion of technology and fashion and they come with their own arrow-shaped strings of LEDs, which cyclists can use to signal that they’re turning.
These gloves come with super bright LEDs which have light sensor making them visible even during the day time.
The turn signal electronics are protected with a water proof coating, allowing you to wash your gloves like other delicate clothing. Durability is one of the important aspect of these gloves and it comes with comfortable leather palms, an absorbent towel around the thumb, retro-reflective trim and breathable spandex throughout.
You can use these gloves to change lanes, turn right, left or use while walking to cross an intersection. The gloves support two types of batteries, rechargeable and disposable. The rechargeable batteries can deliver larger bursts of power and we have tuned the gloves to be the brightest when using the rechargeable battery. With disposable batteries, we have optimized the performance of the gloves for improved battery life. The gloves can detect which batteries have been installed and adjust their performance accordingly.
The company says the gloves come in sizes extra-small, small, medium, large and extra-large.
Here is how Zachees works.
