Laufrad / Reflecting spokes

EUROBIKE AWARD 2006

EUROBIKE AWARD 2006

In an innovative cooperative process with 3M, the Büchel company has successfully implemented the idea of a reflecting spoke. In contrast to conventional spoke reflectors or reflecting rims and tires, bikes equipped with KB reflecting spokes are visible even when turning. This innovation guarantees a reflection over the entire 360 degrees. Along with any front and rear reflectors on the bike, KB reflecting spokes support recognition from the front and rear if the bike light is not functioning. Even bikes that are lying on the ground are immediately recognizable.
