The Winners

Blaze1920

Blaze is a technology company compelled by their love for bicycles. They are on a mission to upgrade urban cycling and have started their quest by reimagining the bicycle light.  Blaze began by solving a very real problem. 79% of cycling fatalities in the UK occur when a driver turns across the path of an unseen cyclist. A new bicycle light was born, complete with a laser that projects a symbol of a bike onto the road ahead. So that even when caught in the blindspot, cyclists can make their presence known.
