Reflective rim stickers: Checker


Size

Small-time 

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! 

Design tip: lined up the checkers result in a cool, consistent rim design!

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!

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.

Stickers make a high-quality impression. Packaging is also nice without producing a lot of waste.
Looks glued on and when they are illuminated they look really great!

But! The photos in the shop suggest a much larger scope of delivery than is in the packaging. There are four small elements for both sides of each rim. So don't be fooled. The scope of delivery is the one shown in the pictures with the packaging. Not the one with the rims in the photos!

Easy ....

Brilliant 🤩 on black rims, initially inconspicuous when the light hits it, but great to recognize.
