About

Hi night riders! Welcome to our 9th FLECTR campaign. We are back to introduce our latest wheel reflector – FLECTR 360 WING.

The first line of defense for your night ride! 

FLECTR 360 WING – The award-winning wheel reflector with true 360 degrees of reflectivity. Maximum performance & style in a new form factor.

If you want to be safe on the road, FLECTR 360 WING is for you, because from wherever car headlights are approaching, it grabs the driver´s attention.   

 Visibility all around, without exception. 

FLECTR 360 WING is resource-friendly and requires under 10% of raw materials compared to conventional bike reflectors.

A superior safety-concept.

Two identical sections build one reflector.

Our two-piece reflector wraps around the rim from both sides and overlaps the rim vertex. Unrivalled benefit: Double & gap-free 360 degree reflection. 

  •  360 degree visibility: Increases safety
  •  High-grade microprismatic technology: Highest possible reflectivity
  •  Non-static light patterns: Grab extra attention
  •  No air drag, no weight & no dynamic imbalance: Maximum wheel performance
  •  High-class custom material: Reliable bond & dirt-repellend surface.
We have received these awards for our safety concepts in the past.

What makes the difference?

Old-school reflectors do their job, but don´t offer the full range of technical potentials. Under sportive aspects – dynamic balance and air drag – they are no go items.


Make cycling safer...

... without sacrificing style & performance of your bike. Choose what suits you best: FLECTR 360 WING in colors silver & amber as high-grade prismatic type-reflector for best possible reflectivity....

... or FLECTR 360 WING in different colors as standard-grade type-reflector.

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.

The perfect fit.

FLECTR 360 WING fits almost all rims, but your rims should have a minimum of sidewall height  – we recommend 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 WING fits round, square and v-shaped rims with diameters from 26" and a maximum of 32 spokes. It doesn´t fit children-, folding- or fat bikes. For these bikes we offer FLECTR ZERO - a spoke mounted reflector.

Ride safer within minutes.

Simply mount this ingenious reflector within a few minutes. As single reflector, as standard in many countries, or for full reflective power as double set.

Our rewards.

FLECTR 360 WING comes as set with 4 pcs. each – 2 pcs. build 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.

The double pack configuration is what we have shown in our video! This adds a good amount of extra reflection.

For three bikes with one reflector per wheel – French style.

For you and your buddy – two bikes fully equipped.

Three bikes fully equipped. (Maybe you have more than one friend.)

8 sets – the classic community pack.

Specifications.

FLECTR 360 WING fits almost every rim: round, square or v-shaped types of all diameters from 26" and above with a maximum of 32 spokes. Exclusion: rim (calliper) brake wheels without a minimum curvature of 15 mm above the brake flank +++ Weight: 1.5 gram each +++ Reflection technology (silver & amber): high-grade cube corner prismatic custom film, glass-bead for other colors +++ Adhesive: custom adhesive for reliable bond/can be removed without residues & damaging rims +++ FLECTR 360 WING is not approved for German road traffic (STVZO) +++ Assembly: self adhering & tool free – just clean the mounting area from dust and grease and press FLECTR 360 WING onto the rim surface at room temperature. Done!

Status of this project.

FLECTR 360 WING is a further development of the FLECTR 360 OMNI reflector. Already his predecessor has received an international major award for its functionality. All products shown in our campaign are finished products from a pre-production. 

This is our 9. campaign, so join the family of already 10.000 FLECTR-bikers here on Kickstarter!

With your help we want to make FLECTR 360 WING make also this safety accessory a viable and affordable product for cyclists around the world. That is why we need your support in financing a first series with all the costs for the production of custom materials and tools. And, of course, the dispatch of your pledges.

All FLECTR products are carefully and computer-aided designed.
Evaluation of the degree of reflection by video recording.

Technically FLECTR 360 wheel reflectors are one of a kind: The two-piece design provides easy installation and great flexibility regarding different rim depths. They fit any wheel diameter above 26" and number of spokes up to 32 per wheel. For a flawless connection to the rim (technically spoken "convex-concave over two directions") without wrinkling or lifting-off, we have chosen highly formable reflective films and applied custom adhesives that bond properly to every rim material and shape. In fact, no standard reflective films combine the necessary technical properties needed for FLECTR 360.

Internationally awarded function and design.

Are reflectors better than electric bike lighting?

Sorry, this is the wrong question. Reflectors have an 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! 

Ride green with FLECTR 360 WING.

21 million bicycles are sold annually across Europe (CONEBI.eu). As a supplied accessory – and often immediately disposed – conventional spoke reflectors cause a plastic waste of about 1.000 metric tons each year. As a one-component product with a weight of only 1.5 gram each, FLECTR 360 WING is resource-friendly and requires under 10% of raw materials compared to conventional bike reflectors.

This campaign is promoted by Jellop, the ad tech power behind the best Kickstarters with 750+ successful Kickstarter projects with over $330MM raised between them.

Risks and challenges

We have already served thousands of bikers world-wide and do it day by day. So we have the experience to serve you - our valued future customers - fast and reliable with our new product. FLECTR 360 WING is completely engineered and manufactured in Europe. We have a well established relation to our suppliers since years and are able to take a look at the production process at any time. So we do not see any direct risks or challenges. In general we are committed to do everything in our power to deliver your FLECTR 360 WING in time and keep you informed about all further processes in regular campaign updates. Of course, there can always be delays when a new product is first manufactured, but this risk is justifiable, because a crowdfunding campaign is not a purchase in an online shop. But let's be clear: You will definitely not lose your money in this campaign, and we will thank you for your great support with exactly what we show to you here.

Long-lasting design

FLECTR 360 WING is an eco-friendly product. As a one-component product with a weight of only 1.5 gram each, FLECTR 360 WING is resource-friendly and requires LESS THAN 10% of RAW MATERIALS compared to conventional bike reflectors. Looking at the consumption of plastics for the manufacture of bicycle reflectors, we are talking about an annual worldwide saving of thousands of metric tons of plastic.

Environmentally friendly factories

The fabrication of our reflectors takes place on state-of-the-art production facilities under ISO 14001 certified environmental management systems. Energy efficiency is maximised by returning heat to the production process and the heating system.

Sustainable fulfillment and distribution

All FLECTR products are packed in pure paper packaging without plastics and unnecessary blister bags. This minimizes the consumption of raw materials. The products are shipped without filling and padding materials. This sounds self-evident, but unfortunately it is not in the trade with bicycle accessories. There are still many PVC blister packs used.

Something else

All production steps are carried out close to our company headquarters without long transport routes. We are currently applying for certification as a climate-friendly company and are working to compensate for the carbon footprint of our operations through climate-friendly projects.
