Winkku indicator mirrors
Cycling is fun and healthy - plus we can all beat the credit crunch and help save the planet by incorporating cycling into our daily routine.
However, making a turn or changing lanes in traffic can be hazardous - glancing round for a second gives you little chance to assess the traffic situation.
Then taking a hand off the handlebar to signal, reduces control of the bike - particularly if you hit a bump or pothole!
Ultra-bright flashing orange indicator
- 5 LEDs to the front, 5 to the rear and 3 around the side. The beams are angled to ensure maximum visibility to car, bus and van drivers.
in shatterproof resin is fully adjustable to give an excellent view of traffic approaching from behind.
Front and rear-facing running lights
for ultimate night-time safety. Positioned on the outside edge of your bike, they encourage drivers to give you a wider berth!
Just a slight nudge of the hand activates the indicator - so you can keep both hands firmly on the handlebars and retain maximum control of the bike at all times.
A discreet bleeper
confirms that the indicator is operating - invaluable for when you need to concentrate on the traffic around you. Winkku clips on and off handlebars instantly
so you can take it with you when you park -
a soft carry bag is supplied.
No wiring - powered by 3 x AA batteries
(not supplied). LED technology means much longer battery life than conventional bulbs.
Each Winkku comes supplied with 2 alternative mounting brackets which fit mountain bikes, city bikes and most other types of handlebars. A special bracket for angled and drop-style racing handlebars is also available separately.
1 - an integral Pro bracket which locks into the end of the handlebar.
2 - a wrap-around Easyfit bracket which can be easily transferred from bike to bike.
For cycling between lines of traffic,
Winkku folds backwards 90°, then easily clicks back into the correct position afterwards. If struck by a passing vehicle, it rotates forwards - Winkku incorporates a rubber bumper to minimise damage.
A left hand unit
is also available for when you need maximum visibility.
