There were the wooden bicycles, the recycled bikes, the electric bikes: here is now the phosphorescent bike with reflective material!
The bike is certainly a means of transport very practical and ecological, it does not prevent that its practice remains a little risky. To navigate the traffic, contacts with cars unfortunately become sometimes inevitable. In addition, at night, the risks increase significantly, so much so that since 2008, the reflective vest has become mandatory cycling at night or insufficient visibility, out of town. While a cyclist without a vest is spotted only at a distance of 30 meters, a reflective vest allows apprehending him at more than 150 meters and therefore to react accordingly. Taken in default of wearing the vest, a cyclist is even liable to a fine of 35 Euros.
And if the bike itself could signal its presence in the middle of the night? This is the case of the bicycle called “The kilo”, whose frame is entirely phosphorescent. He is the first model of the Glow line (in French: “glow”, “brightness”, “light” …) of the manufacturer. A manufacturer who has a special bond with ethics, since he goes as far as creating certain lines of bicycles especially for causes that are close to his heart: pink bicycles whose profits are donated to the fight against cancer, green bikes that will finance ecological projects…
None of this for the Kilo just an original model that every sweet transport enthusiast should instantly fall in love with the reflective elements. We in any case, we validate!
