Reflective rim stickers: Racer


Size

Always forward 

With these highly reflective rim stickers in a subtle design, you can conjure up great effects on your wheels. The slight curvature of the individual stickers is already ideally preformed for 28 inch wheels and makes sticking easy. A set includes 2 sheets, sufficient to equip both rims.

Are you unsure about the choice of width? The 20mm variant covers the majority of all common rims. The wider sizes (40mm & 60mm) are intended for more specific types of rims (e.g. high profile rims on road bikes) and are probably too wide for your city bike.

Important: If you have rim brakes (i.e. brake pads that press on the rim), leave the braking surface free and do not stick anything on it! 

Possible example of a division of the stickers in a 20mm set: 6 rim stickers in front (3 left + 3 right), 4 in the back (2 left + 2 right)

Important: The stickers are not approved according to §67 of the StVZO!

2 sheets with 4-10 rim stickers, depending on the variant:
20mm: 10 rim stickers
40mm: 6 rim stickers
60mm: 4 rim stickers

Material

The stickers consist of a reflective film from the traffic safety sector, which is used for warning markings, traffic signs and information signs outdoors. The reflective foil meets the requirements of EN12899-1 and is characterized by its durability and absolute resistance to weathering, corrosion and solvents. Temperatures from -50° to +80° Celsius do not affect the material.

The retro reflection is created by tiny glass spheres that are attached to a transparent plastic layer and reflect the light back to the source. The surface is made of alkyd resin, the adhesive is made of solvent polyacrylate. The full reflection properties are guaranteed for at least 7 years.

The printed colors are UV-resistant and scratch-resistant, i.e. no fading due to sunlight or color loss due to weather or everyday stress.

The thickness of the stickers is around 0.1mm.

Application

Area of application for the stickers are smooth solid surfaces.
Textiles or hard foam (Urban Arrow) are not suitable as a substrate.
With the help of a transparent application film, the stickers can be detached from the carrier material and stuck either together or individually as you wish.
The substrate must be dry and free from grease and dirt particles.
The outside temperature when gluing must not fall below 10° Celsius and ideally corresponds to room temperature.
After 1-2 days, the adhesive connects to the substrate until maximum adhesion is reached. Removing the stickers turns out to be a clever fiddling around. When removing, mechanical action helps better than chemicals.

Pflege

After the stickers have been properly applied, you can sit back and relax. Bad weather doesn't bother them. If it gets dirty, you can wipe the film off with water or commercially available cleaners without hesitation.

Produktion

The production site for the raw material is in Brandenburg, further processing takes place in Berlin, including with the help of workshops for people with disabilities, and we take care of the shipping ourselves from our headquarters in Prenzlauer Berg. We can thus map our value chain completely regionally. It is within a 35km radius of our store.

Reflective Sticker

Black set of 20 mm reflective stickers fit well into my medium depth rims. On daylight they do not change the black appearance of the rim's flanks. However, after sunset they show a great signature of reflected light. Great substitute to those old clip-ins.

Extremely satisfied

I ordered the black ones, they really are totally black and don't really stand out on my rims - except when it's dark, of course.
It was super easy to apply, it sticks really well and reflects great. I'm totally satisfied.

Thanks for the feedback, Suzanne! Glad to hear you're happy :)

Great product, but the foil is unfortunately defective

Very good reflection, quick and easy attachment possible, but with one of 2 kits, some stiffeners had little or no adhesive and were therefore not attachable.

safety and durability

I have my 5th now. Bike of our family equipped with the stickers because I am convinced by the easy attachment, the luminosity and the durability.
We have different types of stickers on rims and frames.
Now I have also put the rim stickers on my new gravel bike, which I bought for a bickepacking tour. That makes you easily visible as soon as the cars have their lights on.
Worth every €!

More visible in the dark

I bought several products to firstly make the bike more visible in the dark. And secondly, it still looks good. The Reflective RIM stickers were easy to apply and look perfect (vintage version on a blue dirt bike). The other stickers will be applied in the coming days.

Now all you have to do is hold and stick for years to come.
