 WHEEL FLASH - Bike Minimalist Reflectors for High Visibility   

________________________________________________________________

 Increase your side and front visibility in a 360° degrees.  

One of the biggest safety concerns faced by cyclists is visibility in low light conditions.  

Riding at dusk or after dark is almost unavoidable, whether you're commuting on short winter days or riding into the spring or summer dusk. Adding our WHEEL FLASH reflective stickers will help drivers pick you out from the urban visual chaos.  

--- Long distance visibility is ESSENTIAL --- Get yourself seen 

 It takes drivers 1,25 to 2 seconds to react to an object: A car going 30mph (48 kph) will travel at least 55 feet (16 mts) in those two seconds.  

There are optical reasons for all those crashes and deaths

  • Drivers are not really looking for cyclists on the road  
  • Cyclists assume that they're more visible than they really are.
  • By adding reflective elements on moving points to your bike will massively increase your visibility at low light conditions. 

Since vehicle headlights aim down, your bike wheels instantly become  eye-catching when using the reflectors. In addition, the WHEEL FLASH  reflectors are visible from up to .248 miles away.

Studies suggest that in the dark, in car headlights a reflective product is more visible than a fluorescent one.

Such as the 2009 study that found fluorescent vests were not a significant improvement 

It concluded that at day or night reflectors moving were far more effective. That's because the up-and-down motion from pedalling can catch the eye of the motorist more than a large reflective stripe across the back, which can appear stationary, so the placement of any reflective product is as important as wearing it alone

The movement of your rims makes them the ideal location to get maximum visibility.  Drivers will see big blobs of reflected light in their headlights like wheels reflectors on steroids.

WHEEL FLASH reflectors are as BRIGHT as a battery tail-light.

Unlike lights that require batteries to be visible, our WHEEL FLASH reflectors are always on. Most lights do not provide adequate side coverage. We recommend you always ride with lights, day or night, to be seen, but our WHEEL FLASH stickers provides an additional layer of visibility.

Risks and challenges

Designed for Cyclists, by Cyclists. Conceptualized in France, manufacture in South Korea.

The success of our first two campaigns, in 2016/ 2017, laid a strong foundation for our company and since then we have manufactured and shipped over 25,000 cycling prodcuts to customers across 150+ countries. For this new design, we have identified and locked top an export company who will be able to ship within 5 days of successful project funding, so you can enjoy your very own WHEEL FLASH before the winters ends.
We have faced some technical difficulties that made us find better solutions, but we are happy to say that we are over them !!! Most of these issues concerned with how to make the SAFEST and MINIMALIST bike reflectors as trustable that it is today, without compromising its easy remarkable functionality.
