LED Illuminated Safety Belt

Discussion in 'Riding Gear and Bike Accessories/Parts' started by end user, Feb 28, 2014.

  1. These look pretty cool.
    Would they be legal for use on the street in Australia?
    The video shows them in use in a motorcycling capacity at the 2:20 mark.

    They can be constantly lit, or flash intermittently.
    Charged via USB in 2 hours and good for up to 36 hours of illumination.

    $47 for 1 belt
    $85 for 2 belts

  2. That'll light you up like a butterfly. Good one..but it'll take years to come to Austrlia. Why would it be illegal?
  3. I'm not sure you want motorists to confuse you with a cyclist, and estimate your closing speed to be much slower than it actually is.
  4. Oh dear.

  8. Good point, but I think for motor cyclists, you'd wear it with the LED's facing rearwards to help prevent you from getting collected from behind.

  10. The clip shows it in use on a motorcycle and it is markedly less noticeable than on the other examples. Not a bad idea but more beneficial to others than us.
    I'm quite happy to have it mandated for cyclists ;)
  11. Why are we giving this any life? FFS.
  12. how is going for a jog military?
