At R-PUR, we love innovative initiatives, and today we are sharing with you a rather amazing concept: bike mirrors. It's not always easy to keep an eye on everything, The Beam has understood it well: bike safety is a real issue.
Who is The Beam?
The French company The Beam was founded in 2015. Their mission is to design, develop and deliver new ideas and solutions that improve cyclist safety through smart minimalist improvements.
In addition, The Beam won the Red Dot Award, an international product design and communication design award from the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen in Essen, Germany, at its inception.
In addition, all concepts, technologies and materials used are the result of close collaboration between manufacturers and designers in South Korea and France.
Safety on the bike
It goes without saying that the danger is not the cyclist, but rather the environment in which he or she is riding. However, it is necessary to protect oneself and to anticipate its dangers.
In urban spaces first created for four wheels, the transition is slowly taking place. And there are many risks when you are a cyclist.
In 2020, road accidents involving a cyclist increased by 30%.
The mirror is therefore a key accessory, preventing you from turning around and making dangerous swerves on the road. It is therefore a precious asset for the safety of the urban cyclist! In the blink of an eye, it allows you to apprehend the dangers around you, without taking your eyes off the road.
Corky, a discreet accessory to be fixed to the bars of the bicycle
Corky is a discreet accessory that can be easily attached to your bike bars: simply replace the end of your bars and open the cover to expose the mirror. The integration is therefore discreet, and light, since the device weighs only 16 grams.
Its sleek, aerodynamic design minimizes air resistance when open. When the run is over, close the cover to keep the mirrors safe.
With safety at the core of the Corky's design, the mirror offers 360° orientation and vision up to 100 meters away.
The Beam does not stop there, and offers a complete range of products dedicated to safety: discover on their website other smart and design objects like mirrors for glasses, or reflectors for bikes!
