taking cues from the turn-signal tech normally featured in cars, zarathustra presents a bike lights system incorporating sequential lightning indicators & brake signals. featuring a ring of 20 LEDs that blink in sequence, they take their inspiration from the indicators featured on the audi A8.
the german-designed zarathustra lights are machined from aluminium and combined with leather handler grip wraps. using thumb-activated buttons, the LED rings flash sequentially, indicating the users intended direction. the lights can also be used as for continuous illumination, or to serve as hazard lights by both flashing at the same time.
sensors can be mounted under each brake lever to detect when the user is coming to a halt. the two grips wirelessly communicate with one another, causing both lights to illuminate in red, serving as a brake light. the waterproof grips are easily removed to prevent theft and make for easy charging. the charge level is monitored via an iOS/android app, which also lets users access additional operational modes, and adjust the brightness and color of the lights.
the lighting system is part of an indiegogo campaign set up by zarathustra. a pledge of US$99 will get you a set, if they go to production. thw planned retail price is $199.
