1/3 serious accidents are caused by a side impact from a vehicle. The Orb keeps you safe and seen from the side at night. The Orb functions as a water bottle, but the lid contains four super-bright LEDs that illuminate the bottle.
It allows drivers to see cyclists as they approach them from the side, using orange lights – the colour of side visibility on the road. The Orb also makes use of the phenomenon of “biomotion” – by highlighting the pedalling motion of the rider’s legs, drivers have been found to identify cyclists from over three times further away.
We’ve created a new modular design to make it easy for you to remove the electronics unit for easier cleaning. Each piece of the light is also designed to be completely user-repairable with spare parts provided by us, so with a little love and care you can keep your Orb running for years to come.
It’s also brighter. We’ve used brand new high-output LEDs, which mean even more light to keep you safe and seen at night. And the Orb MKII supports USB-C charging (the new universal standard cable) so it’s future-proofed and compatible with more of your devices.
