Cyclesign Rear Reflector - Black & White #1

$9.10

Description

Cyclesign is a bicycle reflector made from used road signs. This clever piece of design simply wraps around the seat post or front tube of a bicycle. In keeping with Trent's focus on sustainability, the strap is cut from old bicycle tubes, making the felt padding the only new material used in the manufacture of this reflector.

Diameter: 54cm 

The Cyclesign is fundamentally a sustainable piece of design. Constructed from used road signs, the felt is the only new material used in the manufacture of this piece, so the burden placed on our natural resources is lessened.  

Special Note: As this product is made from recycled material, it is unique in nature and there will be variation from product to product 
Material: 88.5% reused road sign, 11% reused bicycle tube, 0.5% felt
Production: Sydney and Illawarra, Australia
