Emily Brooke's Blaze has equipped the newest version of London's public cycle hire bikes with upgraded laser lights. The new "Sadiq Cycle" – built by Pashley – was launched yesterday, and features a host of improvements.

The new daytime running lights incorporate 24 super bright LEDs on both the front and the rear. Patented laser projection technology also shines a green bike icon ahead of the rider, providing a forewarning to motorists and pedestrians.

An integrated rear brake light in the extended rear mudguard communicates braking and deceleration to following road users

The new technology solution – which Blaze has named Smart Lights – was developed in-house from Blaze’s studio and workshop in Shoreditch, East London. The lights also incorporate a GPS, accelerometers and atmospheric sensing to monitor overall journey quality.

The front and rear lights stay illuminated for two minutes after the rider stops moving. 

Blaze design director Daniel Barnes said:, “These smart lights are the culmination of two years of R&D from our product team. The opportunity to be involved as a technology partner from the inception of the project has allowed us to achieve an unprecedented level of integration with the design of the bike."

Blaze started out as a manufacturer of the consumer version of the new icon light, the Laserlight.
