TURN ON / helmet

TURN ON
TURN ON

“Turn On” is equipped with a gyroscope-aided warning system. Its aerodynamic kit has a small wind turbine to generate electricity for warning LEDs showing your intended path especially in the night. As riding straight, it displays a normal mode.
Before turning right or left, we are used to rotating head to confirm whether there is any car approaching from behind. Thus, gyroscope sensor is designed to trigger the turning modes for showing indexical signal by sensing nearly spontaneous rotation of head. This design makes you be able to express your intended direction to nearby vehicle drivers and pedestrians without learning how to use it.
