LED gloves for winter bikers add signalling for urban bikers

Urban night bikers risk a lot when travelling the roads, especially in the winter when it gets darker earlier. We’ve seen some crazy get-ups that various bikers have used to light up the night and keep themselves visible. 

Designer Irene Posch’s “Early Winter Night Biking Gloves” are a nice solution to the problem of signalling when riding at night. Riding at night can be dangerous because drivers might not be able to see a biker’s hand or understand the arm gestures. 

Posch’s gloves come with five LED light sewn into the back of the glove. The lights are in the shape of an arrow that lights up when users make a fist. The gloves also have conductive areas on the fingertips that allow for touchscreen use. However, we’d recommend that you not use your phone while on a bike.

According to Posch’s website the gloves are made out of wool gloves, conductive yarn, and five LEDs, which are powered by a single coin cell battery. She says that she is trying to find a way to make the gloves available on a broader scale for next winter.
