Cycling with illume

As you may all know and have experienced, not all roads in India have the provision of street lights, and this doesn’t allow the safety and convenience of riding in the dark. The obvious problem is you can neither see nor be seen. 

Introducing illume, A bicycle which lets you see and be seen. The frame of the bike smartly accommodates three lights. The first one is the adaptive headlamp for better visibility. Second are the Indicator lights which are positioned in a way that helps you be seen from all view angles and can be switched on from the button located on the handlebar. Lastly, the brake lights which switches on automatically when it senses darkness. 

This project has been recognised by various design websites and competitions, including the International Bicycle design competition for which it won the Gold Award.
