A Glowing Pump That Lets Drivers Know You’re Doing Roadside Repairs

There’s a reason that Topeak’s MiniRocket iGlow bike bump won a 2013 Red Dot Design Award: the transparent barrel encases a internal optical fibre that turns a small red LED into a brilliantly visible glowing safety strip. And at just 67g, it adds minimal weight to your bike’s frame, so it’s easy to always keep on hand.

A pair of watch-sized batteries powers it continuously for up to 50 hours on its brightest setting, and 100 hours when dimmed.

For $30 it will not only help you safe on the side of the road when you get a night-time flat, it will also help get you home sooner rather than later. [Topeak via Gadget Review]
