Three young inventors from Cambridge are aiming to reduce cycling accidents with a brand new invention.

They hope that the new cycling accessory, which is worn around the wrist, will help save many lives around the country.

The reflective arrowed armband allows cyclists to show other road users where they are going with its indication facility.

“Not only does it reflect, effectively enabling cyclists to be clearly seen by vehicles, but the arrowed design also allows the wearer to indicate in the dark while being confident that the vehicle behind them can clearly see which direction they intend to travel in,” said one of the inventors.

The bright sparks also hope that this invention will help to save the country money.

As part of their research they found that a cycling accident causing slight injury can cost the emergency services up to £22,000.

“GloGos have the potential to save the economy thousands if not millions of pounds each year in cycling accident costs,” commented the Managing Director of the ambitious new company.

Local MP Julian Huppert, who is a keen cyclist himself, passed on his endorsement of their efforts. 

“These innovative young people have hit on a simple idea which has the potential to improve safety for cyclists across the country.

“It is really encouraging to see young people identifying a market in this way and developing a product which can bring real benefit to people.”
