We’re huge fans of supporting innovation in the bike industry. With fundraising websites like Kickstarter, it’s exciting to see people with fantastic ideas making headway toward launching their products.
Here’s the latest we’ve come across: a bike jacket with built in LED lights. The designers tested the product on LA cyclists, hence the fact that it is not waterproof (though can be fully submerged in water without damage). Maybe a Pacific Northwest-friendly version will come in future incarnations. Endura already has a waterproof, breathable jacket with LEDs, but the jacket leaves something to be desired. The LEDs are only a small strip on the back and though Endura gear is extremely well made in general, this jacket is known for being a little faulty.
