Cyglo’s Night Bright Tyres are the newest innovative approach to bicycle safety on the road. Using LED bulbs built in the tire treads, the cyclist simply switches on a motion sensor within the tire which activates the LED bulbs and then your tires can be seen rolling on the road under various lighting conditions.
For increased visibility on the road, the LED bulbs can be turned on permanently or it can be on a flashing mode. As you ride your bike, the flashing lights form a circle, illuminating your tires on the road. As you pedal, there is a transfer of power which is also used to power up the bulbs.
Newly patented by its founder James Tristram in UK and US, Cyglo Night Bright Tires brings bicycle safety on the road to a new level. It recently won a contest in BBC and inventors are now looking for partners to begin mass production.
