Most rear bike lights are designed to attach around the seat post, however they are often hidden by long jackets or rear baskets containing various items. How might I ensure maximum visibility for cyclists riding at night?
3D printed prototypes were a quick way for me to test out ideas. In addition to the core need of visibility, I wanted to ensure the design allowed for a cyclist to attach a rear light in seconds. This led me to the concept of a case for the light, rather than the regular strap design.
The case can be attached to the bike using zap-straps. This semi-permanent solution is cheap and easy, and allows a cyclist to attach it to a variety of places on her bike. A light can be placed inside the case in a matter of seconds, much faster than it takes to attach a light around the seat post.
