Eight of the most innovative bicycle safety gadgets

Aug 11, 2020.

Helmet. Lights. Reflective jacket. When it comes to bicycle safety equipment, you might think that your options are pretty limited. But thanks to modern technology and some clever designers, the latest choice of innovative ways to make your cycling safer ranges from the smart to the downright amazing. Here are ten of our favourites.



Oricycle C2 Bike Tail Light

Have you ever thought there must be a safer way of telling drivers you’re about to turn that doesn’t involve riding one-handed? With this gadget, you can signal your turns without ever taking your hands off the handlebars. And with its easy-to-use wireless remote control and simple clip-on installation, you'll be up and running in no time.



Loud Bicycle Horn

Because when a car’s drifting towards you, a little bell just isn’t going to cut it.



Nathan Lightspur

When it comes to being seen while cycling, light and motion are an unbeatable combination. So, with Lightspurs attached to your shoes to illuminate your pedalling, you’ll be the most eye-catching thing on the road.



Hövding Airbag Helmet

Protecting your head is important. For people who don't want to wear a helmet, we've found an alternative that is eight times safer. If its collision detection system senses an impact, it deploys an airbag to protect your head in 0.1 seconds. You have to see it to believe it.



Lumos Helmet

This new lightweight helmet not only makes you highly visible to everyone while riding in the dark or in bad weather – it also has automatic brake lights and turn signals. That means you're able to indicate your actions to cars driving behind you.



Overade Foldable Helmet

The problem with helmets is that they need to be the size of your head, which makes carrying them around somewhat annoying. But with Overade’s nifty foldable design, you need not sacrifice convenience for safety.



See Sense Bike Light

Possibly using witchcraft, this smart bike light knows when you’re in riskier situations such as at roundabouts or road junctions, filtering past traffic or approaching cars at night. It’ll then automatically adjust its brightness and flash frequency for optimum visibility.



Hammerhead Bicycle Navigation

Turn-by-turn directions are liberating, but looking at a screen is the last thing you want to do while cycling. This device connects to your phone and tells you when to turn with a simple series of moving dots, so you can keep your eyes on the road.
