Helping bike commuters to increase their visual communication and stay safe is the main goal of Zackees Inc. - makers of the Turn Signal Gloves - now on sale online. Itâ€™s a cool, even amazing product. Created by a Google Engineer, these Turn Signal Gloves are one of the best ways to increase your visibility and communicate your turning intentions to other vehicles on the road. Zackeesâ„¢ Turn Signal Glovesâ„¢ features an ambient lights sensor which boosts visibility during the day and extends battery life at night. â€œThere is a big communication gap between cyclists and drivers on the road. Our gloves give power to the cyclist so that their turning intentions are visually clear.â€ says Zach Vorhies, Founder and CEO. â€œI wanted to create a wearable product that makes cyclists stand out and communicate to drivers in a language they understand.â€ â€œI made the gloves because my young neighbor was hit by a car while riding home. It was dark and the driver did not see him. He barely survived. He was never the same. I wanted to be more visible when I ride. I didnâ€™t want to be afraid of sharing the road with cars,â€ explained Zach. The glove design has comfortable leather palms, an absorbent towel around the thumb for sweat, and retro-reflective trim to give a sleek racing style. With a built in ambient light sensor, which boosts the LEDâ€™s eight times brighter than standard LEDâ€™s, cyclists have an additional flash during their commute. The entire glove is machine washable after removing the batteries. Zackees Inc. has 3 patents pending on their gloves for metal contact plates, ultra efficient LEDâ€™s, and orientation of the arrow, which allows wearers to signal both in front of the rider and behind. This signaling complies with the Alternative Right-Hand Signal Rules widely adopted in the United States and Europe. Zackees, Inc. is one of the first wearable fashion companies targeting cyclists for increased visual communication. The product is now on sale at Zackees.com for $65-$75. The Ultrabright Rechargeable Pack delivers more power per blink than disposable batteries. This upgrade includes four rechargeable coincells and a charger pack. Zackees calls this combo the Ultrabright Rechargeable because the gloves are significantly brighter with these rechargeable coincells. Save 40% by bundling the upgrade with your purchase today.

My Rating: â˜…â˜…â˜…â˜…â˜…
Oh my goodness! I am in LOVE with these gloves and I`m not even a big bike rider! Seriously, the photos just do not do these things justice. The Zackees LED turn signal gloves are great for those who ride their bike; especially at night, but for any time of the day as well. The gloves are very nice quality, well made, durable and work flawlessly. I credit this to the use of combining quality materials in the glove as they use terry cloth, shock absorbing foam, breathable mesh lycra spandex and reinforced leather. I got a size medium glove, which is the standard size glove I wear, and it fit perfectly. The palm side provides a bit of padding to help protect your hands, but also gives added comfort when holding on or gripping the handle bars of your bike, or really anything, when wearing the gloves. The gloves stay on well without slipping off, particularly since they use a velcro strap that goes around your wrist at the end of the glove. Also, I love that your fingers actually come through the finger tips. This makes it easy to grab and have general use of your hand without having to remove the gloves. Particularly useful if you`re riding your bike to the store. Of course the best feature of the gloves aside from the comfort and functional use is that these have LED blinking signal arrows for each hand. Just press the two plates between the thumb and pointer finger together and this will activate the 54 lumen LED panel of lights. This is powered by the already included rechargeable batteries in each glove. The light will stay blinking for as long as you`re pressing the two activation plates together. Once you release these plates from touching the lights will go off. Ultimately I am very pleased and still rather amazed by these gloves. On top of all the awesome quality and features, these are also machine washable as an added bonus! This company clearly thought of everything and I am beyond impressed! Now can these guys make some gloves that will instantly clean my house with a press of a button?! âžœ I received this product in exchange for my honest review.
