LITEGEAR, Saving Cyclists Lives


If you’re like me you know several people who ride motorcycles, and of course you want them to be safe on the road. We we certainly have got something that will help keep our bikers and other motorists safe on the road.
Las Vegas-based technology company, LitGear, creates stylish and innovative motorcycle jackets and vests with the idea of safety in mind – products available online for purchase HERE.

This gear combines LED lights and wireless Bluetooth technology and provides the utmost safety for motorcyclists and on-road vehicles. Created by Founder and CEO Michael Ejiawoko, these jackets and vests are equipped with blinking turn signals, hazard signals, and brake signals. LitGear’s priority is safety, using groundbreaking technology to create fashionable gear for both men and women.

LitGear is the “industry leader in customizable, fashion-forward visibility”, creating a cutting-edge platform for motorcyclists to practice safety on the road. In an exclusive interview with FOX 5 News, Founder and motorcyclist Michael Ejiawoko speaks on the functionality and features of LitGear, which uses Bluetooth and LED lights to sync with each other:

“I push [a remote button] once, I push it again and it goes to a pairing mode. It’ll signal and brake at the same time. There’s a brain that we installed on the bike. There’s also a brain inside the jacket and they just communicate with each other wirelessly.”

When discussing his motive behind creating the product, Michael shares, “I was thinking, ‘What can I do to make [motorcyclists] more visible, but at the same time, look cool?”

Safety, visibility, and style are all words LitGear lives by. Nearly 43% of motorcycle accidents occur daily between 3 p.m. to 9 p.m., with many vehicles unable to spot motorcyclists in time. With LitGear, it allows you to be “lit” up to .25 miles away with LED lights that last up to 12 hours.

LitGear is available in leather or textile, with the option to add your own customizations. The leather material is available as a jacket or vest and is made of top-grain cowhide. The textile jacket is made of quality Cordura material and is 100% waterproof.

Both jackets and vests come in a variety of colors to choose from. With the LitGear patented LED Safety Light Kit, customers may customize an already owned jacket – converting it to the same technology as LitGear’s apparel. Now, there is no excuse to not be safe while riding. Michael has plans to continue creating safety products for motorcyclists in the near future, including boots and backpacks.
