Fiks:Reflective Wheel Stripes aim to increase side visibility for bicycles to keep their riders seen and safe. Fiks:Reflective Wheel Stripes are designed and produced specifically to fit most modern bicycle wheels. They are easy to install and apply to the surface of your bicycle’s rim between the braking surface and the spokes, converting your bicycles rims into full reflectors.
They are made out of a special retro-reflective material that reflects light back to the source, even if it isn’t straight on. This means, the light from the headlights of a car at that dark intersection on your commute to work will bounce back towards the car and the driver.
Selecting the width:
Choosing the width for your Reflective Rim Stripes comes down to the type of rims on your bike. The rim is the metal ring in which the tire fits to. Several sizes are available to fit almost every modern wheel on the market.
7mm – Our most common size. These are designed to fit on the section of the rim between the braking surface and the spokes.
14mm – Over twice as much reflective surface area. These are designed to fit aero-style/deep-v rims in the area between the spokes and the braking surface.
10mm – Specially designed for bicycles with disk brakes, drum brakes, roller brakes, a coaster brakes, or brakeless track bikes. These are designed to be installed on the outermost section of the rim next to the tire (where the braking surface would normally be).
If your bike is equipped with rim brakes and the rims do not have at least 6mm or 1/4 in. of space between the braking surface and the spokes (distance-x), Fiks: Reflective Rim Stripes cannot be used–never apply Fiks:Reflective Rim Stripes to the braking surface of a wheel.
*This product is sold in sets of 2 packs. One pack for each wheel.
