Currently a Kickstarter project, the Blaze is a fabulously bright LED front light which comes with a built-in laser. The laser creates the image of a bicycle in front of the cyclist, warning drivers of who is in their blindspots or pedestrians about to jump onto the road to cross.
(Here in the UK) 79% of cyclists are hit when theyre travelling straight ahead and a vehicle maneuvers into them, largely due to their small footprint and position on the road. BLAZE tackles this.
BLAZE is a front light with super-bright LEDs, but it also projects the symbol of a bike down onto the road ahead of the cyclist. Its adjustable, but ideally about 5m in front. It alerts road users ahead of the cyclist of their presence, helping to prevent them turning across their path (especially the big ones like buses and trucks!). Making the cyclist more visible and increasing their footprint on the road.
