Reflective tape for adding visibility to your wheels on dark rides. Lights & mud flaps increase your visibility front & back, but you need additional help to increase your visibility from traffic approaching you from the sides.
More than half of bicycle collisions happen from the side and front, not the rear. These accidents occur most frequently during the low light hours from 4pm to 9pm. MINI BRITE WHEELS, our partial coverage reflective rim strips, increase your side visibility, are reflective for up to a distance of ½ mile and make you recognizable as a bike. Our Mini rim strips cover almost 20% rim, inside the braking surface of course and provide good coverage at an economical price.
Made of 3M reflective vinyl they easily attach to your rims and unlike lights which have batteries that can become low, the rim strips are always on. Most lighting systems do not provide adequate side coverage. We recommend you always ride with lights, day or night, to be seen, but reflective vinyl provides an additional layer of visibility.
The decals which are cut to fit your rims are easily applied to a clean rim. Each package comes with enough tape for both sides of two wheels. Order the wide or narrow version depending on your rim depth. Complete instructions are included.
