Early Winter Night Biking Gloves by Irene Posch of Fashioning Technology are an excellent way to minimize risk while bicycling at night.
“Raising visibility is a big issue for urban bikers. The gloves aesthetically and functionally translate this need: Winter nights come early, thus there is more need for extra lighting; at the same time it is cold, so wearing gloves is necessary anyway.”
The gloves are constructed out of wool and feature conductive areas on the inner palms and fingertips. The outer palms house nifty little LED arrow signals which are activated when closing a fist causing the LED’s to light up signaling to drivers. The conductive areas on the fingertips also enable the gloves to work with touchscreen devices.
