Indicate where you are… and where you’re going
(PRWEB UK) 26 September 2017
Wayv is a London based startup focusing on cycle safety created by two enthusiastic city cyclists Amit and Dotun.
Cyclists are at their most vulnerable in low light, particularly when turning. At night hand signals are barely visible and are often performed very briefly to avoid losing control of the bike.
When Amit was knocked off his bike by a motorist who did not see his hand signal due to low light conditions bike whist making a turn, he and Dotun decided something needed to be done.
The WAYV team set out to create the ultimate bike safety light safety system, one that has both front and back turn indicators, an integrated tail light ("X") and remains highly visible in different riding positions.
Designed for all types of cyclists WAYV is wearable with or without a backpack and nothing has to be left on the bike. A system that builds on established car lighting and indication paradigms that everybody already understands.
The WAYV system consists of a harness, headset and wireless controller. The harness has over 200 super bright LEDs to make cyclists super bright and uniquely visible on the road. Front and back indicators alert pedestrians and traffic to cyclists' turn directions whilst cyclists remain in control of the bike with hands on the handle bars.
With usability and comfort at the forefront, the lightweight, breathable and fully adjustable harness sits as happily over a waterproof jacket in winter as it does on a t-shirt in summer. The harness is rechargeable, waterproof & durable but also flexible soft enough to be folded and stowed in a small bag. The same WAYV harness can also be attached directly to backpacks.
The WAYV headset features 2 turn indicators, an "X" tail light and can be attached to most vented helmets.
The harness and helmet indicator lights are controlled simultaneously by a detachable wireless remote on the handlebars.
The WAYV system also comes with smartphone app to show battery levels and configure, customise and pair the harness, helmet and remote.
WAYV will soon start crowdfunding on Kickstarter. We have crated the prototypes of the product and done extensive testing on the road.
