Night Rider

As night falls, you speed through the streets on your bicycle. As motorists zip past, they easily spot you in the darkness because the frame of your bicycle glows brightly with pulsing lines of neon-colored light.

No, that isn't some scene from a classic 80s sci-fi flick. That's just how awesome the real here-and-now can be when your bicycle is sporting this electrifying new bike safety light. Simply coil the 10 feet of electroluminescent cord around the frame of your bicycle, securing it with the included tape or with plastic utility ties. The light dramatically improves visibility from all directions, and can be adjusted for steady glow or two speeds of flashing. Designed in California, made in China.

Unfortunately, this item cannot ship outside of the United States at this time.

    Comments about BIKE GLOW SAFETY LIGHT:

    The bike light is very easy to use, bright (my main concern)and 10 ft long!The product comes with a secure velcro attachment and strong tape to ensure the light remains attached to the bike. There are also 3 different light settings:stationary,slow blinking, rapid blinking. I highly suggest this product. Besides, you cannot beat the inexpensive price for additional safety at night.

      Comments about BIKE GLOW SAFETY LIGHT:

      My husband is a daily bike commuter into the city and I want him to be seen at night as fall and winter approaches. He thought the gift was fun as well as functional... and he is picky about what goes on his bike. It is light weight and has three different patterns, steady, blink, fast blink... They are very bright.

        I got this for my husband who constantly trains for tri's. I did not trust the little lights to be enough light when it gets darker when he is trainer or early in the mornings. This is perfect and I feel better about him not getting hurt.

          I bought this for my grown son, who rides his bike night and day. Although he has a terrific headlamp and tail light, as his Mom, this flashing light makes me feel a lot better about him when he's out in the dark.

          I was afraid he'd think it was a dumb idea, but he put it on his bike right away and thinks it's pretty cool. Totally increases his visibility and has the cool factor. win-win!

            My son will eventually wrap this around his bike to make a light parade of one, but at the moment he's using it to create artistic figures on black poster board for a series of illuminated fun artworks. I've been looking for this product all over -- it's great and it's worth it! It would be fun to find it in different colors, though.

                  This is great for just that added safety of when out biking at dusk or on cloudy days. The added visual is a great safety feature. Makes drivers slow down and wonder "what is that".

                    I bought this wrap light for my 17 year old nephew. It is so hard to find things that teenagers can use without being computer or phone related. I wanted to encourage him to enjoy the outdoors and be active. He has a good bike but I was a little concerned about him driving at night as he has to cross a couple of busy streets to get anywhere. I can relax a little now. He was able to easily install product on his bike and was also able to be creative about it. Looks great and is quite bright in the darkness. Just hope he remembers to turn it off when he puts up his bike.

                    Maybe you're modest, but cycling is one time when it's a good idea to draw attention to yourself. We love these eye-catching coils Katie found. Would you feel safer cruising at night if your bike glowed pink, green, or blue?

                    I don't ride, but EVERY rider should have this. Many people have taken to riding in the dark during the winter (after 4pm, that is) when it's icy. It's impossible to see them!

                    Should only be $8.00-$10.00 so kids will want to spend thier allowances on it; you'll probably sell more that way.

                    Although this is made in China, it's a fantastic idea. I wish bicyclists around our town were required to use something like this product! Many of them don't have lights on their bikes and of course wear dark clothing, so they are hard to spot after dark. This is a super idea and very useful!

                    Bright, fun and increases visibility. Not as "dorky" as the large reflectors, which I never wanted on my bike as a kid. Its not an original design, but the price is reasonable and its a great purchase for safety. Definitely hope you offer this! I'll buy several!

                    Great idea...too bad it's made in China.

                    Wish these were around when my kids were little. Great idea.

                    LOVE IT!! I can see everyone doing so much more with it than just bike stuff...what about sledding at night? Heck, I'd even put in on my dog.

                    I'm a cyclist and this sounds like a great product. Anything that improves visibility is a good thing. A little expensive though, $10-15 seems more reasonable.

                    We need something like this for dog collars and leashes, too. Both need to be seen at night.

                    I like this for people who ride, and the price seems reasonable. I do wish it were made in US rather than China tho.

                    Serves a good purpose and I like them, but why do they have to be made in China?

                    Created in California and outsourced to China? Not for $25. What kind of margin are you reaching for with this stuff?

                    Great idea and would buy if not made in china. It was created in California why can we not produce it here?
