The BIKE SYMBOL is EDGE LIT to deliver sharp visibility even at acute angles
Our smart edge lighting technology which displays the symbol, delivers a much wider viewing angle. So the symbol is at 100% visibility through almost a full 180 degrees.
Nearly 50% of all fatal traffic accidents happen at night and inadequate lighting is one of the most common causes of night-time accidents (Light in road traffic, osram.com).
The UK’s Department of Transport Report on Road Casualties in 2011 said that 60% of pedal cycle casualties occurred between 7am–10am and 4pm–7pm and were likely to include people travelling to and from work.
Information from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (ROSPA) in the UK says cycling accidents in the dark are more likely to be fatal, and that in the UK alone 19,000 cyclists are killed or injured each year in reported road accidents.
