BlinkerGrips Bicycle Turnsignals and Side Lights
BlinkerGrips is a Swiss creation to add overall visibility and the ability to signal turns to other vehicles with a simple grip swap. With the press of a thumb operated button on the ergonomic grip one can turn the signal on to indicate a turn along with the usual hand signs. With a pair of AAA batteries powering each, the BlinkerGrips claim some 2500 turn signals. If you prefer an always-on indicator light the ever-light edition includes rechargeable batteries and even has a connection for Dynamo power should you be so inclined to power them as you pedal. They’re weatherproof, and reportendly impact resistant though I always question how long anything mounted to the end of the bars is going to last given the frequency that parked bikes are knocked over or otherwise dropped. The lock-on style grips are compatible with most trigger shifter and brake lever combinations and are available for roughly $60 per pair.
