Due to the raise of environmental consciousness more people use bicycle as their transportation instead of cars. Also we want to give a clean handlebar back to cyclists. Safira is inspired by the intention of solving messy accessories on the handlebar for modern cyclists.
Blending the high lumen front lamp and direction indicator into handlebar grip without causing abrupt form collapse is difficult. Otherwise, design a mechanism that transfer electric from handlebar to headlamp is also tricky.
