PYKRS, a Spanish startup that specialises in smart clothing, has announced the launch of its new product: the PYKRS X-TREME Parka, a smart jacket full of tech that combines style, comfort and safety for urban commutes.

The PYKRS Parka is designed to offer a higher level of protection and comfort to pedestrians and users of bicycles, scooters and motorcycles, who face the challenges of urban traffic, bad weather and low visibility, the company said in a press release.

The parka features a unique integration of technologies, controllable from a remote or the PYKRS App, that make it stand out from other jackets. It is an electroluminescent lighting system that covers the front and back of the parka, making it 3 times more visible than any reflective material; increasing the visibility of pedestrians, cyclists and users of e-scooters.

The jacket has a heating system that uses carbon fibre elements to generate heat in the chest and back areas of the parka, achieving a gain of 45ºC in just 5 minutes; optimising corporal temperature even in the coldest weather. It also incorporates a fall detection system that uses sensors and GPS to detect if the user has suffered a fall or an accident, and automatically alerts the user's emergency contacts by sending a text message with the user's location. The fall detection system provides peace of mind both to users and their relatives. It can be enabled or disabled from the PYKRS app.

The PYKRS Parka is also water-resistant, windproof, breathable and washable, making it suitable for any weather condition. The parka has a modern and minimalist design, with a unisex fit and a variety of sizes and colours to choose from. The PYKRS Parka is the first product of a line of smart clothing that PYKRS plans to develop for the urban mobility market.
