It is the world's first and only helmet with laser lights.
The smart front laser projects an image about 6 meters ahead of cyclist.
This greatly extends cyclists' footprint on road, and is particularly useful when cyclists are caught in the huge blind-spot area of a large vehicle.
The Beacon Helmet is designed to help tackle blind spot and overtaking accidents, two major sources of cyclist injury that involve other vehicles either failing to see them or else not respecting the minimum distance they should maintain. With that in mind, the Beacon projects a bicycle-shaped laser image up to 40 feet ahead of the cyclist, as well as bicycle lane markers at a safe distance to the right and left.
The Beacon also includes a 100-lumen headlight, taillight, turn signals, a brake light activated via an onboard accelerometer, and in-built speaker system which syncs with a rider’s phone for music or navigation instructions.
