Orfos Flares Offer Higher Visibility for Cyclists
A new Kickstarted bicycle light can improve a cyclist's vision with a lamp as bright as a car's headlights
If you’re a lucky cyclist, you already know how frightening it is to ride on the road at night, made visible only by the dimmer lamp of your legally mandated light.
If you’re a lucky motorist, you’ve had at least one near-miss where you almost hit a cyclist at night because you just couldn’t see him in the darkness.
If you’re either and unlucky, you’ve been in an accident caused by the same factors.
Orfos founder Pete Clyde, a Seattle-based cyclist wants to eliminate all three possibilities with the Flare: a super-bright bike light that makes cycles plainly visible even in the worst conditions.
