At R-PUR, we like innovative initiatives, today we are sharing a rather surprising concept with you: mirrors for bicycles. It's not always easy to keep an eye on everything, The Beam understands that: bike safety is a real issue.
Who is The Beam?
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.
The Beam also won the Red Dot Award, an international prize for product design and communication design, awarded by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen in Essen, Germany.
In addition, all the concepts, technologies and materials used are the result of close collaboration between manufacturers and designers from South Korea and France.
It goes without saying that the danger is not the cyclist, but rather the environment in which he evolves. However, it is necessary to protect yourself and anticipate its dangers.
In urban spaces first created for four wheels, the transition is taking place gently. And there are many risks when you are a cyclist.
In 2020, road accidents involving a cyclist increased by 30%.
The rear-view mirror is therefore a key accessory, preventing you from turning around and making dangerous swerves on the road. It is therefore a valuable asset for the safety of urban cyclists! 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 attach to the bars of the bike
Corky is a discreet accessory that attaches easily to the bars of your bike: just replace the end cap 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 race is over, close the lid to keep the mirrors safe.
With safety at the center of the Corky's design, the rearview mirror offers 360° orientation and vision up to 100 meters away.
The Beam does not stop there, and also offers a complete range of products dedicated to safety: discover on their website other clever and design objects such as mirrors for glasses, or even reflectors for bicycles!
