- Signal Pod is a wireless bicycle signalling system, designed for extra safety while cycling.
- Maintain full control of your bike - your hands will never leave the handlebars, as the Signal Pod control unit conveniently clips on.
- With three settings, clear LED arrows light up to indicate 'left', 'right' and 'hazard' much like a car or motorcycle would.
- Audible beeps alert pedestrians and nearby motorists.
- Tested, weather-proof design ensures a reliable and durable system.
The IGGI Signal Pod is a wireless indicating system that allows cyclists to focus on the road while signalling and turning. Transmit signals wirelessly from the control unit to rear of bicycle.
Signal Pod is easy to use, and a breeze to set up.
Simply connect the wireless control unit to the handlebars, and attach the Signal Pod light unit to the seat post.
Then, during cycling, tap the control unit to transfer and display signals to the rear of your bicycle.
The extra-bright LED light display allows you to indicate left and right clearly, with an extra hazard light option at your disposal.
Audible beeps accompany the visual indicators, allowing you to alert those nearby at the touch of a button.

This new version of the Signal Pod features four small LEDs in the centre, in the shape of a diamond.
These act like a regular LED flashing reflector, which is commonly used on bicycles.
They also lets you know when the unit is turned on.
The unit is now 2.5v using 3 x AA batteries.
The indicating lights meanwhile are now a warm yellow colour.
The lower of the four red centre lights stays on when the device is turned on.
The top three red lights in the centre meanwhile flash constantly unless indicating - good for extra visibility and safety.
1. Wireless connections remove the need to run a wire around the bike.
2. Audible 'beep' when the indicator is on.
3. Very bright yellow LED'S.
4. Sturdy build and good brackets included.
5. Waterproof controller and Indicator unit.
1. The wireless system is unreliable; sometimes it will respond perfectly, while every so often the signal isn't sent/received.
2. It's only a rear indicator. If you want to turn into traffic (i.e at a crossroad turning right) you must put an arm out, as only vehicles behind can see the indicator.
So why are these issues so critical?
As you can imagine, if you're attempting to get the indicator to work, while biking, and it doesn't respond, you lose focus on the control of the bike and the traffic/spacial awareness suffers.
As it's only a rear indicator, it's pretty much useless at some turnings. This is a shame, as if a front and rear indicator existed (without the wireless issues) it would be perfect.
In conclusion, this is a excellent design, with powerful ideas; but the critical, intermittent signal issues are something to take into consideration.
