“Have you ever experienced the frustrating moment, to start riding home at night and realize the light battery is dead? It is an incredibly palm-sweating experience to cycle at night with a dead rear light. The fear of being rear-ended will haunt you throughout the journey and it is definitely an awful experience. Even worse, most of the time we don’t notice it is dead halfway during the ride. Frustrated with such situations we decided to create a super reflector for those emergency moments.”
“To attract the motorist’s attention, a blinking reflector is more powerful than a static reflector. In case your light suddenly dies, Blincclip will always be there reflecting headlights to get you noticed. This is where the magic happens. It simply hangs freely over the seat rails and responding to every movement as you pedal. The material, shape, size, and weight are optimized for the great pendulum effect. Plus, It blinks dynamically throughout every situation. It is responsive to the speed you are riding, terrain, and wind. On top of that, it goes static when you brake! “
