“ Manufacturer: Respro / Type: High Visibility „
My boyfriends son spends half his life riding his BMX or mountain bike but like many kids he will not
wear anything hi viz or bright when he's cycling. Although he does have lights for both bikes we
decided he could do with something to make him more visible after dark especially since most of his
clothes are dark coloured. .
The Respro sticker sheets are made from Scotchlite which is a high viz reflective material and
are available in a variety of designs including skulls,chevrons and stars and colours including
bright day glo colours and plain black or white. We chose the black diamond sheets because
both of Ryans bikes are black so during daylight the stickers just look like black overlays on
the black paint.but the black reflective material shines bright white when car lights catch it
after dark lighting you and your bike up like a landing strip..
The sticker sheets are A4 in size and are either ready cut stickers you can peel off or plain sheets
which can be cut to any shape or size you want using scissors or a craft knife. One of the best
things about these is you can make your own designs so even for kids who wouldn't be seen
dead with hi viz colours the idea of funking up their bike or helmet in their own design usually
The stickers are easy to apply and stick really well on most surfaces we've used them on bikes and
bags with no problems. So far these have survived around 6 months with only a couple starting to
peel slightly at the edges on Ryans frames. If you want to remove the stickers at any point using a
hair drier breaks the glue so you can peel them off and a little T cut removes the remaining glue
edges from your paintwork and leaves no damage to the paintwork.
At the moment Ryan has a cow patch design on his BMX which looks great on the chunky frame
in daylight and even better when lights hit it after dark. His mountain bike has a few stripes on it
and a Japanese sun design on the down tube and his dads courier bag now has a
smiley face/acid man making a rather rude gesture. Since Ryan has done his bikes with this quite
a few of his friends have done their bikes with the Respro stickers as well which will hopefully
keep them all a bit safer once the darker nights come back.
The Respro stickers can be used on the bike itself or on bags,helmets etc and are a fantastic
way to increase you or your childs visibility on the road at nights without the need for hi viz
clothing. Even the doziest driver will hopefully notice a glowing cow BMX crossing the road in
front of them and most kids will love creating their own designs for their bike or bag.
The Respro stickers cost around £8 -£13 per sheet depending on the type or design and are
available from most bike shops or from online shops such as chainreactioncycles.com,
