BIKESPAN increases a cyclist’s presence on the road. When sharing the road with cars, the more visible a cyclist is, the safer he is.

BIKESPAN is a brightly colored cloth accessory attached over the back wheel of the bike that catches the air as the cyclist rides, expanding wider the faster the cyclist travels. Not only does this make the cyclist visible to cars, it also indicates the speed at which the cyclist is approaching. In low light conditions, LED lights placed within it will cause the entire piece to glow.
