One of the biggest challenges to cyclists is staying visible to cars. We’re required to use hand/arm signals when turning left or right, but sometimes drivers aren’t paying attention to us or just don’t know what the signals mean.
Enter Zackees Turn Signal Gloves. We LOVE these gloves. Finally, cyclists have a way to flash a lighted turn signal to show where they’re going… and communicate in a “language” that drivers understand.
“When I was young my neighbor was hit by a car at the age of seven while riding home. He lost his arm. He was wearing dark clothes at the time. The need for visibility is very real for me.” says Zach Vorhies, Founder and CEO and a former software engineer for Google.
The glove design has comfortable leather palms, an absorbent towel around the thumb for sweat, and retro-reflective trim to give a sleek racing style. With a built-in ambient light sensor, which boosts the LEDs eight times brighter than standard LEDs, cyclists have an additional flash during their commute. The entire glove is machine washable after removing the batteries.
