The importance of pedal reflectors has been recognized since the 1980s at the latest. Studies by the TRL Limited UK (Transport Research Laboratory) showed at that time that red rearlights are best seen from a great distance, but pedal reflectors attract a lot of attention due to their constant rotation. After that pedal reflectors became obligatory for all new bikes - later on they became mandatory for all bicycles (UK).
Nowadays, many sports bikes have minimalistic system pedals without pedal reflectors. All road bikers, lots of mountain bikers and fitness bikers use them. The benefits of these over classic flat pedals in terms of efficiency and comfort are huge.

FLECTR VORTEX crank reflectors bring the pedal reflector back to the bike. Exactly there where high-class design and pedal efficiency actually no longer offer any space. And it's more than just a substitute. FLECTR VORTEX follows the conecpt of the successful FLECTR 360: Reflection all around, without exception. Made of highly reflective materials. Robust and indestructible.
