Being visible to cars is ever important. A recent study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) showed 27% of bicycle accidents are side-impacts and 30% of fatalities occur in intersections (between 2010-2017). Being seen from all angles while cycling has never been easier. The Grid Side Beacon was imagined to work in with head/tail lights to keep you more visible from a full 360 degrees. They are designed to be mounted to either side of your fork or frame with reusable silicone straps. Spec’d with eye catching amber colored LEDs, the weather proof, rechargeable Grid Side Beacon set comes with a dual headed charger and has a runtime of up to 6 hours for multiple days of commuting illumination.
