Right now, across the world, there’s a ground swell of momentum that’s resulting in people taking to the street on foot and two wheels.
Whether it’s for environmental and traffic congestion benefits, money and time-saving, health, exercise- we think it's fantastic, and we wanted to do something to help. We also believe viable urban transportation alternatives in cities worldwide should be encouraged to help make cities more liveable and sustainable.
As keen cyclists ourselves – we were bored of the same-old (daggy) fluoro vests and hi-vis gear. And that’s when we started to wonder if there was a way we could make this stuff good looking and wearable - yet truly effective.
We'd held this vision for "a something'' remarkable yet simple product. In late 2011 after months of hard work, sketches, a van load of prototypes, feedback and trialling we fulfilled our vision with the launch with a very cool something called the monkeysee harness.
Seems that there is nothing quite like it - and the response to it has been fantastic.
So whether you you're commuting to work, the local cafe or meet your mates, our gear will have you looking more visible to motorists - and pretty dapper at the same time.
And while we can’t promise that hi-vis will save you, we can assure you that it won’t hurt you either. 'Better to prepare and prevent, than repair and repent!’ as they say!
See you! Denise Straty, your chief chimp @ monkeysee
