If you often ride a bike at night, you know how dangerous it is. Bicycles have reflectors on them, but they’re not as effective as they should be. If you’re looking for a safer and cooler alternative to being noticed at night on your bike, the new Lumen bicycle may be just what you’re looking for.

The Lumen is “a 100% retro-reflective city bicycle inspired by late nights, city lights and full moons.” The best part of the bike is its integrated retro reflection, which makes it look as if it glows in the dark at night. In the daytime, the bike’s frame is a deep charcoal gray and looks just like any ordinary bike, but at night the frame and rims glow when direct light hit them.

The Lumen bicycle is a great investment for bikers looking to stay safe, because you really can’t miss a bicycle that lights up at night. Meaning, you’ll be really hard to miss! It’s also convenient because it doesn’t require any additional components, all you need is the bicycle – no extra reflectors, tape, etc. Who doesn’t love a bike that requires no charging or batteries, and uses cool retro-reflection to create an intense lighting effect.
