Interbike: Pedalite Discusses Safety and Ecology with Roadcycling.com
Simon Theobald from Pedalite states you can insure that the family is seen, safe, and green while outdoors.
Statistically, 75% of cycling accidents occur in intersections. Simple safety rules such as bright clothing and using lights can help keep you safe by being seen. Lights aren’t just for nighttime anymore. Simon said lighting in the daytime is overlooked considering the effects of shadows or clouds from changing weather conditions.
Pedalite’s award winning answer is battery free lighting including pedal lights, a strap-on pack light, and ankle lights. Tests have shown these lights are visible a kilometer away in the daytime and more at night. The added bonus to your safety is environmentally friendly solar power and kinetic energy. There are no batteries to spend your money on and nothing corrosive being dumped into the landfill. The packaging is even recycled cardboard!
This writer can assure you weight is not a concern as the products are lightweight. Their use extends beyond cycling to every family member. The baglight can be strapped to your child’s backpack. The ankle light can double by securing your pant leg away from the chainring if used in commuting. The function of these products not only enhances your safety but won’t empty your wallet.
