Kieran Larssen

Motivated product design engineer who has a passion for design and a keen eye for detail. Experienced in performing critical analysis of complex engineering problems and producing valued solutions with the final user in mind. My final year project focused on improving cyclist safety, motivated by my fondness for cycling and desire to develop a potentially life-saving product.



Side visibility is a massively neglected area of cyclist safety. A staggering 49.9% of all cyclists killed or seriously injured in 2020 were at a junction or roundabout, highlighting the need for better visibility. Luminate is a 360° bike light system designed for maximum visibility even in chaotic urban environments. Compact yet powerful sidelights can be removed from the main light and clipped onto the spokes effortlessly. After use, the sidelights are returned to the main light for charging, ready for the next journey. A compact design in partnership with a quick attach/detach mounting system eliminates the chance of theft.
