Road cycling gloves
I am a MSc student studying performance clothing development.
A friend of mine in the sportswear industry has suggested a need for the development of road cycling gloves with high visibility, to help when hand signalling at night / poorly lit conditions.
I understand that a product has been on the market previously using LEDs which wasn’t very successful for various reasons. However, technology for illuminating textiles is far more advanced than LEDs these days – I am thinking along the lines of something that would illuminate without the need for a power source (or minimal power source) and without the reliance of reflectance of light from other vehicles.
Just thought I’d put this idea out there. I’d be grateful for any feedback you have or any bugbears regarding cycling gloves in general!
Thanks in advance
