Revolutionising Cycling Safety in Scotland for 2016
Visijax build rugged, washable electronics into clothing to enhance their capabilities.
Their first product was the Commuter Jacket – the world’s first LED cycling jacket with hi-vis LED’s and motion-activated turn signals.
Visijax are passionate about developing a range of safety wear and other products aimed at active consumers, with smart, or wearable technologies at their core. They are now expanding their range of garments by designing a new generation of true high-visibility clothing and accessories for cyclists, runners, walkers, ramblers, climber and equestrians.
The Importance of Visibility
|The ultimate safety in outdoor wear has conventionally revolved around high visibility jackets, however, as undeniably useful as they are, they all have an Achilles heel that is rarely mentioned. This is that in very dark conditions, for their magic to happen, they ultimately rely on a light source to be shone directly on them or they will be remain completely invisible.||
|Now, however, thanks to recent developments in wearable technology, there is a solution. These hi-visibility jackets with their own in built high-power LED light source can dramatically increase visibility in these low, or even zero visibility, conditions, and dramatically increase visibility even during the day – particularly on overcast or foggy days. It is early days yet, but this could herald a new dawn for the humble high-visibility jacket.|
Collisions at night/in the dark were more likely to result in a fatality.

The Importance of Cycling Safety
There are about 4 billion cyclists in the world and increasing urbanisation means that cycling is getting riskier. Research amongst 5000 cyclists discovered that 55% of them travelled to and from work on ‘autopilot’, with 25% unable to recall details of their commute, including whether or not they had stopped at red traffic lights. It seems clear that cyclists could do with some extra standout on the road.
HI-VIS CLOTHING IS NOT ENOUGH
In the dark, reflective clothing is useless without a direct light source, which may not always be available when changing lanes or emerging from side street.
VISIJAX IS TRUE HIGH VISIBILITY
Active LED lighting embedded into the garment itself solves this. Motorists appreciate you, while you can feel secure knowing you are far safer, so you can relax and enjoy your cycling more.
Around 67% of non-cyclists in Britain feel that it is too dangerous for them to cycle on the roads; and very nearly half (48%) of those who do cycle share this view.
