Get creative and submit your dream bike accessory! Velodroom is looking for ideas that match their brand and mission.
Velodroom is a bicycle accessory brand with a unique take on the world of cycling. They focus on smart and inventive solutions like their current light system, which is detailed below.
Create an accessory that solves a problem cyclists face in their daily trek - make practical and intelligent with a dose of Velodroom style (see pictures and video).
The Velodroom bicycle lighting system is designed to address the issues of nighttime and daytime urban bike commuting. It is a one of a kind bicycle light set, with embedded sensors, powered by USB-rechargeable battery. The lights turn on with bike movement and switch off 60 seconds after the bike has stopped. Built in accelerometer analyses the motion of the bicycle and turns on the rear stop light while braking. This possibly saves your life and certainly looks stunning.
