About this project
Days become shorter and we are back with FLECTR 2.0 - with ENHANCED REFLECTIVITY and also two available colours: SILVER & YELLOW - matching the regional needs world-wide.
FLECTR is the world´s first wheel reflector which combines stylish design with state-of-the-art reflection and outstanding aerodynamics. Beyond that it´s weightless and indestructible. Paper-thin FLECTR fits every spoke like a glove.
With great success and nearly 2.000 happy backers we launched FLECTR 1.0 here on Kickstarter, and up to now over 6.000 bicycles world-wide are equipped with FLECTR. Teamed up with leading manufacturers of reflection technology we refined FLECTR. Our cooperation opened new doors: FLECTR 2.0 comes with enhanced reflectivity by more than 20 percent and also in an additional colour to match all different regional needs.
Sleek and sexy over the day. A small silver flag – that´s it.
FLECTR - thousands of retroreflective microprisms reflect light back to its source. Most advanced reflection technology that meets the high standards of police & rescue vehicles. Stunningly glowing when hit by car headlights.
FLECTR´s shape and profile are optimized to avoid air drag. Extensive testing with incident flow velocities of up to 100 mph / 160 Km/h has shown that FLECTR passes these tests without any oscillation or noise.
With a weight of only 0.024 oz / 0.7 gram, FLECTR does not affect the dynamic balance of the wheel in sharp contrast to old school-reflectors with weights of up to 0.90 oz / 25 gram each.
FLECTR´s production is resource-friendly. It requires only 5-10% of raw materials compared to conventional reflectors. This saves 90% plastic waste. (To give you an idea: 72 million German bikes cause a plastic waste of about 5.000 metric tons! by wheel reflector plastics.)
FLECTR is foil-based and optimized for an easy assembly. Just remove the foil carrier, center the reflector on the spoke vertex and press both side panels together. Tool-free and easy.
... and CHOOSE YOUR COLOUR after our campaign has ended - we will contact you!
FLECTR reflective frame kit
The reflective frame kit is designed to provide an assortment of 11 high-quality reflective adhesive labels to adapt to any type of bicycle frame - available in silver and daylight black. You can add the framekit to your FLECTR 2.0 in our aftercampain-survey or order a single one above. Choose the colour after the campaign has ended.
Research and testing under real conditions.
After month of research, sourcing of materials and technical planning, we have tested FLECTR´s design for quite some time under various circumstances and changing climate conditions. Since end of last winter, FLECTR has proven that it works under all conditions. Together with the positive feedback of our FLECTR 1.0 customers we (and also you) have the certainty that FLECTR performs as it should.
The idea behind FLECTR.
Most conventional wheel reflectors do their job, but they are anything but sleek and stylish - a no go item for real bikers. This explains why cyclists do without, although it means a huge compromise from a safety perspective. This realization initiated FLECTR in 2015.
FLECTR fits every spoke: classic round & flat (bladed) spokes of any diameter Weight: 0.024 oz / 0.7 gram each Reflection technology: cube corner prismatic reflector Reflectors: metalized prisms Assembly: self adhering, tool free assembly
Fulfillment & shipping
After campaign has ended we will process everything fast and professionally. You will receive a survey invitation on the deposited e-mail. This survey just takes three minutes and ensures a proper shipment. All conseignments are insured & trackable. Together with DHL Deutsche Post we are able to offer a reliable and well-priced solution. Your reward will be send as registered priority letter and requires signature on receipt. Please keep in mind that you are responsible for customs charges maybe if required by your country for importing goods.
We appreciate your support.
With FLECTR 1.0 we have managed to bear the initial costs of our development as well as first toolings. Now - and with your support - we like to take the next step towards our objective making FLECTR a new standard for spoke reflectors. Safe but stylish - for ambitious bikers all over the world. We think, previous FLECTR-users have shown that this smart product deserves it. FLECTR´s future challenges will be minimum order sizes for the required custom reflective material (which is manufactured solely for us in this version). Furthermore it is a long way to reach out to the shop around YOUR corner.
Thanks for taking the time to look at our campaign.
We really appreciate your support and hope you find value in FLECTR! In case you have further questions, don´t hesitate to contact us. Your Outsider Team
Be smart, be seen, be safe!
