Raylier has created leather jackets with LED lights

Motorbike leather jackets are mainly used to protect the rider and keep them toasty when it is cold or wet. But they can be a hazard especially when you are driving at night and no one can see you.

The French company Raylier has solved this issue with the first ever luminous jacket for bikers. The jacket will have 12 LED lights all together with six white ones in the front and 6 red ones at the back. The lights can be controlled by a button on a jacket's belt.

With this Raylier hopes to reduce the fatalities of bikers by 18 percent. But if you happen to be in a accident no need to worry because the jacket is also made of very strong leather and is equipped with a visco-elastic protective shell that shall reduce major injuries.

“More than 60 percent of bikers’ accidents are due to a lack of visibility,” Baptiste Rosay, one of the co-founders of Raylier said. “Thanks to our jacket, we improve their visibility in order to avoid crashes and save their lives. More than visibility, we improve the communication with the road users.

"A warning mode will make the jacket blink and improve visibility in risky situations. A brake light works autonomously, thanks to an on-board accelerometer. It intensifies the rear lights when slowing down.” Also the LED lights are arranged very elegant not only making your journey more safer but in style as well.
