Are there wearable left, right, stop signal lights?

Recommended Posts

I was looking on Amazon and eBay but couldn't find such a thing. I am thinking of a vest that on the back it has a left and right signal, and between them a large stop light. The vest would have a wire that runs through some kind of a sleeve and to your hands where you control a switch with 3 buttons (maybe). If such thing is not designed yet, then some of you can start a kickstart project.

Oh, I see. But they messed up the colors. The stop light should be just like a stop light -- round, red, and bright.

I’ve seen these regularly, they generally blink right or left for no good reason (people forget them) , and aren’t very readable.

You might be better off with a strong red light at the back of the helmet and use your arms (with light of reflective?) to indicate direction.. Most wheels have brake lights. (Just my opinion)

That's what I suspected. Looking at he pictures, the signals don't seem bold enough for car drivers to recognize them from afar.

Will likely be getting USB chargeable big blinking red light that clip on backpacks or shirts.

Into bold myself, we are small enough as is compared to cars, and our vehicles are so low.

I will consider, but I prefer left and right signal blinkers, and a stop light.

A pair of these, (blinks red) one on each wrist guard, could make fairly readable turn blink light.

I watched their video. I have wearable bracelet lights but they blink the way I set them before my ride. (Either a single light, or a blinking light.) I am looking for something to be triggered with a Left and Right switch that I will hold in my fingers (maybe)... or, maybe I can be holding each one of these in my hands and push the button as needed to turn on and off whichever one I need to use to signal the cars behind me.

@nullWhat brand rearview mirror are you using?

It is this one, very common, same as Marty.
The fixation is a 3D printed piece that replicates the TSG pass hinge part but with a holder for the mirrors stick.
Just tell if you'd want the file I can put it online.

This is the one you want:

I already had a backpack with a hydration bladder so I opted for the LED signal pack.

I mounted the controller to my right Flexmeter wrist guard.
