In 2011, 44 thousand cyclists were hit by vehicles in the US. Zackees Turn Signal Gloves helps address the problem of cycling safety by putting an LED Turn Signal wear you need it most, right on you hand!
We debuted our LED Turn Signal gloves on Kickstarter in December and raised $72.5k in sales in just 30 days. The reviewers love us:
VentureBeat - “...the greatest gift to cyclists since the helmet.”
Self Magazine - "...it makes us feel safer about riding the streets at night."
HuffingtonPost - "A pair of gloves could save your life"
CNET - "...enough to encourage a new era of turn signal use."
The company was founded by Zach Vorhies and Murat Ozkan, an ex-googler and a electronics guru. We aim to make beautiful and useful wearable technology products that helps people BE SEEN.
Investment? We are self funded at this time. But we are open if the right strategic investor is presented.
