My passion for cycling is what sparked the idea for Vizirider. Having been knocked off my bike twice, and fortunately escaping with just minor injuries. I was able to ask the drivers what had caused the collisions and both times the drivers said they "looked but had not seen me".
Determined to continue riding on the roads, I explored various safety wear options to increase my visibility. I understood it's crucial for drivers to be able to see me sooner, react quicker and take evasive action. Most of the existing cycling clothing available was only partially reflective. With limited options to choose from, I explored various designs and was able to develop my own gilet with integrated LED lights to help stand out in low visibility conditions.
Many cyclists do not wear enough visible clothing and have inadequate mounted bike lights. This can lead to serious injuries and fatal accidents occurring. Vizirider is designed to mimic the torso of a person, with LEDs on front and back, and side reflective panels to increase visibility at junctions. This can help other road users to more easily identify the rider, react much faster and slow down.
Vizirider is also ideal for horse riders and walkers.
Vizirider is a potential life-saver, making you as visible as possible.
Be Seen, Be Safe
