British company Skute Design are releasing a new indicator glove called the Lumin8a.
Plenty of indicator gloves have been released in the past with varying degrees of success. These ones come with a red LED chevron on the back of each hand. When you want to signal, you press the button at the top of the forefinger with your thumb and the lights begin to flash.
The Lumin8a gloves are available in both short and long finger options and they are recharged via a built in USB connector. We’re told that they can be washed just fine, although we’ve not got a pair yet so we’ve not tried it. We do have some on the way for testing.
Here’s a short video of them in action…
The Lumin8a gloves are currently available at £39.99 from the Skute Design website although they’ll be making their way into bike shops soon.
Mat has worked for more bike magazines than anyone else in the known universe, dating back to a time when this was all just fields. He's been road.cc technical editor for four years, testing bikes, fettling the latest kit, and trying out the most up-to-the-minute clothing. We send him off around the world to get all the news from launches and shows too. When he's not cycling around Wiltshire, he's running around it, or possibly swimming (sadly, he's one of those 'triathletes'). Mat is a youthful 42-year-old Cambridge graduate, GSOH etc.
