After being fed up with what the market had to offer for cycling backpacks, designer William Root decided to do something about it. The Brooklyn-based creator put together a gorgeous backpack that also provides some nice utility in the Blackpack Cycling Backpack.

Sure it looks amazing with its hardened black shell (that’s completely waterproof by the way), but it’s in the functionality where this thing really sets itself apart. Looking like KITT from Knight Rider, the pack is outfitted with a single strip illuminated tail light that helps the rider stay visible for other’s on the road. And it’s more than jut a flashing bike light, it’s a built in turn signal, and brake light, alerting others exactly what your next move will be. Right now it’s in the concept stage, but we imagine with enough support behind it, Root may end up taking it to the mainstream. [Purchase]
