According to the Department for Transport, research has shown that 80% of all cycling accidents occur during daylight hours. In those accidents resulting in death, 40% of the time the cyclist is hit from behind. Studies further indicate that most riders overestimate their visibility.

Bontrager’s engineers have taken a stance and designed a daylight visible light known as the Flare R. Seen by motorists from over 2km (1.2 miles) away, this 65 lumen rechargeable light maximizes visibility both day and night. Compact yet extremely powerful, this light was designed from the ground up specifically for daylight visibility.

Now you become the biggest distraction on the road.
