Rechargeable Handlebar Lights
The 'Glo-Bars' are a Sustainable Bicycle Safety Precaution

By: Senduran Bhakthakumaran (Star) Mar 31, 12

Bicycle safety applications have become a recent trend in cycle manufacturing and as ideas bloom, newer ideas are given a chance to form and the ‘Glo-Bars’ are a perfect example.

They are rechargeable LED-lit handlebars that are bright enough to light up the road ahead of a cyclist, serving as a useful safety precaution for both bikers and drivers.  The lights have been taken a step further so that they can also be used as signal indicators for turns. When it’s too dark to see hand signals, the Glo-Bars become most useful. This is a fairly simple innovation using rechargeable methods and LED lights but its impact is enormous as cycling accidents are not infrequent in cities.
