Designed in California
Created by a Google Engineer obsessed with making the world’s best bike light.
The most visible bike light is the one you wear on your hand. Zackees’s award-winning Turn Signal Gloves are the hottest innovation in cycling lights: the ability to communicate turning intentions to other vehicles on the road.
Turn Signals are Mandatory for Cars
Electric turn-signal lights for cars date from as early as 1907. The modern turn signal was patented in 1938 and later most major automobile manufacturers offered this feature. As of 2013, most countries require turn signals on all new vehicles that are driven on public roadways. The use of turn signals drastically increases safety of cars, and now it’s time for cycling to have that same benefit.
Theft Resistant / No Installation
Let’s face it, bike lights are top targets for thieves. Zackees Turn Signal Gloves are theft resistant because they stay with the rider. Zackees are also ready to go-out-of-the-box and don’t require installation.
The Hottest Gift for Urban Cyclists
Other bicycle accessories are functional but sort of ugly. Zackees is more than a safety device, it’s designer wear.
“We can’t lie; you put a pair of Zackees on and you feel like some kind of robocyclist sent back in time to prevent a future where cars rule over mankind. Fair warning: you’re going to think you’re badass in these, and you may be right…if you purchase one item in this entire review, make it this one. If you’re not a cyclist, these will make you want to start riding.”
– CBS Mancave.
This glove is tough enough to survive your washing machine. Remove the batteries and machine wash in cold water with your other clothes. Hang dry.
High Quality Textiles
We wanted to create the best possible glove that would compete against the top glove makers. Therefore we added comfortable leather palms, an absorbent towel around the thumb, retro-reflective trim and breathable spandex throughout.
How can they be so bright when using such a small battery? Efficiency. Our LEDs are the most efficient on the market at converting power into light.
1984 Olympic Champion in Cycling, Nelson Vails
“A lot of drivers don’t know how to interpret the proper hand signals of cyclists. I know this as one of the original bike messengers of New York City: There’s communication gap between cyclists and drivers. This is a big problem. With Zackees turning intentions are unmistakable to others on the road. These gloves command respect and cause others to yield when you signal to come into their lane ahead. Make no mistake, Zackees Turn Signal Gloves is a groundbreaking product, and I believe it will start a new trend in the cycling industry.”
Nelson Vails is the first ever African American cyclist to win an Olympic medal. His life is the subject of the biographical documentary, “Cheetah: The Nelson Vails Story”.
