They say it takes a pair to go toe to toe with cars on the mean city streets, so why not show the world just how confident you are?
Bike Balls is exposing itself to the cycling world with a Kickstarter campaign to bring its anatomically similar tail light to the streets. The LED is cradled inside a squishy silicone sack, which is wholly illuminated as it swings to and fro under your saddle. The effect, they suggest, is a bigger, more noticeable hit of light that grabs drivers’ attention by the, um, you know…
Since you can’t hide them in your trousers when it’s time to go incognito, the strap is designed to quickly unhook and store them away safely (in Sweetie’s purse) while you’re away from your bike.
Just fondle the Bike Balls to turn them on, squeezing gently to cycle through the modes. The silicone housing is weatherproof, hiding the electronics, LED and two coin cell batteries.
The balls hang low and wobble to and fro, increasing the attention they grab, further enhancing the safety function. Check their Kickstarter campaign to grab an early bird special pair now for just $10 if you hurry, or $13 if you procrastinate. Full retail is expected to be about $20.
So, does this mean the aero tuck position with fender renders the goat?
