UV Disinfection Handle

During the pandemic, cycling is promoted as an alternative to public transport, where possible, to reduce the risk of viral spread, improve overall health. What's more, the Bicycle-sharing system has become a popular way for many people to get around. However, public bicycles still have a certain risk of disease transmission, such as handlebars that people touch most. The "UV Disinfection handle" can clean the handlebars of public bicycles in time by ultraviolet disinfection. The electricity needed is generated by a generator on the rear wheel to generate electricity during cycling.
