How does the Reflective rimSkin work?

 

The Reflective rimSkin is made of a high grade reflective material, similar to those on road signs and emergency vehicles. When hit with a direct light source, they emit a glow.

 

How does the GLOW rimSkin work?

 

Our GLOW rimSkin material is made from an ultra bright, commercial grade phosphorescent pigment (also known as glow in the dark) and emits a bright glow for hours after a single 10-15 minute charge under a strong light source such as sunlight, LED flashlight or (as we recommend) a UV light.

 

Can I use the rimSkin with a brake?

 

If you have a caliper brake, you must select the Caliper Brake option when choosing your size. This will leave your braking surface uncovered so your brake doesn't rub on the rimSkin. DO NOT APPLY A RIMSKIN OVER THE BRAKING SURFACE OF YOUR RIM IF YOU ARE USING A BRAKE.
