Indik8a, a new safety signalling system for cyclists, launched yesterday.
It introduces high visibility when indicating on a bicycle, providing another level of protection for cyclists in low-level light. It can be worn on a bare hand or over a glove and features an illuminated directional arrow that is activated by a switch on each hand.
“Indik8a offers a significant improvement in safety while riding a bike, giving cyclists greater control of their personal safety,” said Douglas Rushbrooke, Indik8a’s CEO.
“As winter approaches, being safe and seen in the mornings and evenings is a top priority for those who rely on their bikes to get them to and from school or work every day.”
The product has been designed and developed over a number of years, and nearly didn’t come to production. Originally the brainchild of qualified pilot Alistair Malcolm, the project fell to his wife Evelyn in 2016 when Alistair sadly passed away.
The team now consists of Evelyn, founder-director, Douglas Rushbrooke, CEO and Simon Rushbrooke, head of design.
Adult Indik8as are available to buy now from www.indik8a.com and retail at £35 including postage. Children’s versions will be available shortly.
