With Autumn upon us, we’ve teamed up with our friends at Blaze to bring you the perfect light for navigating through the darker hours, making your rides safer and more fun.
The Blaze Laserlight’s combination of white LED and green laser projection makes you more visible than standard LED lights. Designed to reduce the risk of side sweeps, it alerts drivers to your presence, by projecting the symbol of a bike 5-6m ahead.
The moving green bike signals that there is a bike approaching, preventing pedestrians from stepping out on the rider’s path and providing early warning to drivers exiting side roads.
Why a Laserlight?
Four out of five cycling incidents happen when drivers manoeuvre into the rider’s path, often times involving a rider caught in the vehicle's’ blind spot and a distracted or unsighted driver turning left.
In 2015, tests by the Transport Research Laboratory found the Laserlight to reduce the blind spot area of a London bus by 24%, with similar results for other vehicles. Following the findings, the technology is being rolled out across Santander Cycles in London.
