Retroreflective Bike from Halo Coatings

Bicycling lawyer Josh Zisson of Bike Safe Boston set out to create the safest bike he could last year, building up the pictured bike with an internally geared hub, all weather drum brakes, a dynamo front hub that powers daytime running lights but perhaps the most striking addition is a special retro refecltive coating from Halo Coatings. The coating can easily be applied to most anything, unlike the reflective vinyl that we’re all familiar with. The UV-stable coating can be mixed into different colors, and shoul last the life of the bicycle without chipping or losing any of it’s reflectivity. See more at www.bikesafeboston.com

    This is really exciting for the industry. Can’t wait to see the other applications for Halo Coatings. Also, Josh and his website, http://www.bikesafeboston.com, are great. Check it out.
