Why do cars have indicators but bikes don't?
We are two young entrepreneurs, who are also keen urban cyclists. We had a problem and we decided to find a solution.
Now, with your help, we can make it a reality!
Presenting our fashion label URSmyBike and our gadgets URSmySense, URSmyLight and URSmyApp
**URSmySense, URSmyLight and URSmyApp
URSmySense is a device that translates the cyclist’s hand signals into light signals achieving this way more visibility and givingeasily understood indications to the other drivers on urban roads; and URSmyLights is a bluetooth receiver which is integrated into the back of our clothing.
Currently we have the following prototypes:
The Bracelet URSmySense which is formed by two leds that project light onto the rider’s hand, a red one that blinks constantly and an orange one that blinks when the arm is held horizontally (indicating left) or held vertically (indicating right)
making the left hand more visible when signalling. **You may use it by itself or
linked via Bluetooth to URSmyLights.
URSmyLights is the indicating module (placed in the back of the garment)
may be used together with URSmySense or via your Android Smartphone
using URSmyApp. The mobile phone is placed on the handlebars close to the left
hand, which means signals can be controlled without letting go of the handle; the
big buttons of the APP make it easy to use without looking or having to handle the
smartphone when cycling.
Both devices are charged via USB and have a battery duration of 5haprox and an aprox reach of 6 meters.
Who are they for?
The URS system can be used by a single cyclist carrying both gadgets, or by a group of cyclists, with the one at the front wearing the bracelet and the one at the back, the indicator unit. It's use is not confined to just cyclists either. It can be used by skaters, skateboarders, motorcyclists... to improve their visibility on the roads.
With your help we will be able to produce the first pre-series of smaller prototypes, lighter and with a definitive cover design.
This Project is part of our urban clothing company URSmyBike, which produces unisex sweatshirts designed and adapted to use together with
URSmySense&lights, and a range of other, versatile accessories for the bike, to help cyclists move comfortably around the city.
¿Our main goal? To make urban life easier and more comfortable for cyclists
Passion is the driving force of this Project for both of us: for Ursula Pacheco it's fashion design and for Micky Suarez it's technology and bikes. A young and restless couple looking to create solutions to make everyday life easier for cyclists. Ursula –fashion designer- is in charge of the design and textile production, and Micky – photographer- of the image and technological design.
URSmyBike Past, present and future
It was born as a personal project, in which we worked in a completely
artisanal way creating clothing and gadgets in a very small quantities, and in some cases, purely for personal use.
Currently, we work with small product runs, always innovating and improving
technical aspects, like for example, the illumination system. We research, work
and produce with the latest technology in textile digital printing, 3D prototype
printing and electronic controllers, as well as artisanal techniques like printing and
We want to introduce to the public our URSmySense and establish our brand as a Company. But in order to achieve that we need your help, to transform our idea and our passion into a reality.
We pedal strongly to make the city and the bicycle more compatible each day.
What will your contributions be used for
Your coontribution will enable us to produce and distribute the first prototypes of URSmySense, helping bicycle lovers everywhere to feel more
comfortable in the city, and ro encourage the ones that are not yet bike lovers, to get outside and start cycling! You will be pioneers in wearing intermittent lights in your clothes!
About the rewards
During the campaign, you will be able to acquire the first prototypes of illumination URSmySense&lights and our exclusive fashion collection URSmyBike Black Edition.

Most of our rewards are produced quickly in our workshop; you will be able to have a great gift for Christmas.
URSmySense&lights and URSweatshirt have a more involved production process but if we manage to get our goal before the ending of the campaign, all production times will be shortened.
