FLECTR 360 OMNI – cycling at night with full 360° visibility
Winner of the Eurobike-Award 2018 & the first line of defense for your night ride! Now it fits every bike and comes in two colors.
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Fri, August 31 2018 8:03 AM UTC +00:00.
The next generation bike reflector with 360° visibility.
The award-winning FLECTR 360 is now even better. Simply adapt it to your rim size and choose from more colors – silver & brand-new yellow! We are just back from the Eurobike-award and take the well-known FLECTR 360 safety concept to a new level.
This is the first line of defense for your night ride!
FLECTR 360 OMNI wraps razor-thin around your rims and from wherever car headlights are approaching, it grabs the driver´s attention. All around, without exception.
FLECTR 360 now comes in a unisize version that fits every size of rim.
F360 OMNI is the power package for your safety!
360 degree visibility
Multi-direction reflectivity increases your safety. Now in silver & yellow!
Highest possible reflection from thousands of metalized cube-corner prisms. Forget about simple glas bead reflectors.
Non-static light patterns
Rotating, pulsing and moving light grabs extra attention.
NEW: One size design
With a simple cut along the integrated cutting aids you adapt FLECTR 360 OMNI to your rims.
No air drag & no dynamic imbalance
With a set weight of just 2 grams, FLECTR 360 OMNI leaves your wheel´s performance unaffected.
Custom reflective film technology
Unique 3D conformable film with reliable bond & dirt-repellend surface.
The arched profiles of modern bike rims offer a perfect base for an adhesive wide-angle reflector as there are multiple plains for reflection. The two-piece FLECTR 360 OMNI wraps around the rim from both sides and overlaps onto the rim vertex. The advantage: gap-free reflection from all sides.
Why Size does not matter!*
We call this evolution of the FLECTR 360 reflector OMNI (from latin: everything), because it allows you – through the integrated rear cutting aids – to adjust the size to your rim size with a simple cut of sharp scissors. You do not have to choose a fixed size in advance, you simply adapt FLECTR 360 OMNI to your requirements.
* Of course your rims should have a minimum of sidewall height to offer a sufficient amount of surface for reflection – in fact you can cut FLECTR 360 OMNI to any size, but we recommend FLECTR 360 OMNI for these dimensions:
Rim brake wheels minimum overall depth of rim: 25 mm / 1.0 inch
Disc brake wheels minimum overall depth of rim: 15 mm / 0.6 inch
FLECTR 360 OMNI fits round, square and v-shaped rims with diameters above 24" and a maximum of 32 spokes.
There´s no need to make a choice of color now. After the campaign has ended, we will ask you for all details in a survey together with your address for shipment.
If your rims are to small for the FLECTR 360 concept or like a premium spoke-mounted reflector, you can also choose our awarded FLECTR ZERO in both colors for your bike as alternative reward.
FLECTR 360 OMNI comes as set with 4 pcs. each – 2 pcs. together are ONE reflector. With one set you are able to equip your bike with ONE reflector per wheel – as it is standard in many countries – or one wheel with two reflectors, which adds a good amount of extra reflection.
The double pack configuration is what we have shown in our video!
You'll get your reflectors before the days get shorter! We have an exact schedule and will start shipping FLECTR 360 OMNI on 25th of September 2018.

Why we need you & Kickstarter?
As easy as it may look for some, a development like FLECTR 360 OMNI is a long way. For large companies and especially for small ones like us. After gaining a lot of experience with our products together with our customers, FLECTR 360 OMNI has already been tested by a lot of cyclists within last months without complaints.
Now the production of FLECTR 360 in another new colour confronts us with high financial hurdles. Our material must leave the laboratory to be put into production. This means for us that we have to produce many hundreds of square meters in a first batch.
ARE REFLECTORS BETTER THAN ELECTRIC BIKE LIGHTING?
Reflectors have a big advantage over electric lighting - they do not require maintenance and are still there for you even if your lighting fails. But both, reflectors and bicycle lighting form a system and should always be used together. You decide how much safety you need to feel comfortable cycling. Both increase your visibility for car drivers when riding at night. They won't make you invincible!
