Amazing Bicycle Spoke Lights

Hokey Spoke lights

One of the big dangers of riding a bike at night is being seen by cars. Sure, you could put the world’s most powerful headlights up front, and a dozen flashing LEDs on your rear, but many bicycle-car collisions involve a car not seeing a bike from the side.

There are very few side-lighting systems available.

Hokey-Spokes fills this gap very well. Hokey-Spokes are a strip of LEDs mounted within the spokes of either the front or rear wheel of your bike. As your wheel spins, the LEDs trace a pattern of light. If you are going fast enough, the human eye’s persistence of vision sees this as a semi-solid face of light.

This is great, but what is really wonderful is that with different combinations of LED patterns, a myriad of images can be created. In fact, the LEDs can be programmed to spell out individual words.
