A camera carrying system that keeps camera handy, supports your creative workflow.

There are things that seem so logical and so right when you see them for the first time that you wonder why they weren’t there all the time. The SPINN camera carrying system is just like that. Designed for all professional DSLRs – and for DSLM cameras that are becoming increasingly popular – this system offers the comfort and handling benefit, that standard eyelets on every camera simply do not offer.

The strap is usually attached at the top of the camera so that it swings, rotates and moves. Carrying the camera becomes a real pain, especially if you’re using a larger zoom lens. Not to mention, how the strap gets in the way of your face every time you look into the camera’s viewfinder – a problem with a high annoyance factor, as it permanently disrupts a fluid and creative working subliminally.

With the SPINN CP.01 camera plate, the camera fits your body perfectly and the straps don’t interfere with your workflow, neither when you´re shooting handheld – nor from the tripod. It shifts your cameras center of gravity from top to base, where the strap is fixed now. The optimal distance of the eyelets leads to a perfect balance on your body, and so carrying the camera will be incredibly easy. In the chosen position it rests bombproof, and in the crucial moments, you will intuitively grab it.

The Spinn CP.01 is made to perfectly fit any DSLR or mirrorless camera through its reversible and slightly asymmetric design. Multiple slots allow you to choose a configuration that fits your camera the best. It is also designed to be compatible with the internationally widespread Arca-Swiss standard, making the CP.01 work with almost all commercially available tripods. Each CP.01 comes CNC machined from aluminum, ensuring precision, reliability, robustness, without noticeably weighing down the camera.

To seal the deal, Spinn even offers a handmade, broad-width strap that feels comfortable and distributes the camera’s weight without letting you feel the pressure!

Flectr’s Award-winning bike-reflectors are back with color variants!

You may remember the FLECTR 360 OMNI from last year. The German Design Award and Eurobike 2018 Award-winning sticker promised to make bicycling safer without any extra effort than installing these film-based, adhesive reflectors on your bicycle rim. Using a microprismatic film, these stickers reflect ambient light in all directions with full intensity, making them instantly visible. Just attach them on the rims of your bike and they enhance your visibility manifold, making your otherwise silent and unsuspecting bicycle immediately noticeable to pedestrians and oncoming traffic in low light conditions.

The FLECTR 360 CL now comes back in a set of colors. With a wide variety to choose from, the FLECTR 360 CL comes in colors like yellow, amber, red, blue, and even daylight black, which reflects silver in the dark, and becomes a regular discreet sticker at other times. The reflectors come pre-cut and can be further trimmed down with the help of backside cutting aids, allowing them to fit universally on all bicycles. The stickers come in a pair of two for each wheel, maximizing reflection and ultimately visibility.

The FLECTR 360 CL’s ultimate design brief remains to continuously make bike riding safer in low-light conditions. The reflectors work without needing a power supply or source, relying on the scattering of light to emit a powerful glow. Weighing a mere 2 grams, the reflectors also make sure that they don’t affect the bike’s performance or aerodynamics, but in turn provide high visibility, drastically cutting down low-light bicycle accidents.

Bag a Black Friday Special with the Sexy FLECTR Reflectors

Cycling your way to fitness or to work, is certainly on the rise and I’m trusting your knowledge on the environment and health impact it has, so I won’t elaborate. What I’d like to draw your attention to, however, is the supporting gear that makes it safer for you to bike, everyday. While you may have a hip Tee and branded shoes in place, are you doing enough to be visible? Agreed that there is nothing sexy about reflectors on biking-wheels that make you visible beyond doubt, but thankfully we have innovations like the FLECTR reflectors.

The designers (Kai Wiehagen & Jorg Neugebauer) of FLECTR have managed to make reflectors a must-have, by employing modern technology and design principles that make them innovative and award-winning products. The design is split into two categories: classic spoke-based reflectors, and following the trend of large-volume rims: rim reflectors.

Let’s talk about the classic spoke reflector – FLECTR ZERO. This reflector does everything that well-known reflectors can do. However, it is much smaller, without any air drag and only 10 percent of the usual weight and use of raw materials. An ecologically beneficial power-package that really fits every bicycle.

Talking about rim reflectors, the FLECTR 360 OMNI offers a lot more than the usual bunch in this segment. This reflector forms a unit with the rim and converts it into a 360 degree reflector. The visual impact of this is such, that wherever a car headlight may hit the bike, FLECTR 360 Omni will grab the driver´s attention, making the biker visible with a stunning glow. FLECTR 360 OMNI also includes cutting guides to help trim its size to suit your wheel-type. Thus completely customizable.

Important Features:

– FLECTR reflectors use of metallized cube corner prisms, which are applied to a special, almost indestructible carrier
– This carrier is in turn is attached to the bicycle with a custom adhesive that is not available on the common market
– The reflective intensity is up to five times stronger than the traditional glass bead technology used on many reflective parts for bicycles

Although they have been around only for two years now, FLECTR reflectors are helping people across the globe to make their cycling journey a lot more safer. In fact they won many awards for these innovations, including the coveted “German Innovation Award” along with the Eurobike Award two years in a row.

The Award-winning Wheel Reflector That Instantly Make Biking Safer

Bicycles have always been the healthier way of commuting, but there’s still a long way to go to make bicycle riding as safe as sitting inside a car. Bikes are fast, but incredibly quiet, and given their size, they aren’t as visible as a car with its flashy headlights, taillights, and loud horn. So in a world that desperately needs to re-embrace cycling as a way of commuting, the FLECTR 360 Omni wants to provide a small-footprint high-impact solution to make bicycling safer.

The FLECTR 360 Omni are superiorly engineered adhesive reflector panels that provide 360° coverage. From wherever a car headlight may hit the bike, FLECTR 360 Omni will grab the driver´s attention making the biker visible with a stunning glow. Designed to be mounted on the rims of a bicycle’s wheels FLECTR 360 Omni requires no electronics, battery, or upkeep. The FLECTR 360 Omni lights up your wheels by reflecting the headlights of all vehicles around you, making you visible to avoid collisions. The panels kick in immediately when it starts getting dark and one’s visibility begins reducing, eliminating the need to remember to switch it on. It simply works when necessary and remains inconspicuous in bright daylight. The 360 Omni comes in a unique parallelogram shape that fits well over any sort of wheel rim, and FLECTR also includes cutting guides to help trim its size to suit your wheel-type.

The breakthrough for the 360 Omni is its use of metalized cube-corner prisms for reflectors rather than relying on simple glass bead technology. The prisms help reflecting light more efficiently back to the light source, turning it into a bright shine on your wheels. Weighing in at just 2 grams, the FLECTR is lightweight and has a zero impact on the bike’s performance or aerodynamics. The FLECTR 360 Omni lights up when the bike’s static, creating distinct, visible patches of light, but things get even more interesting when you’re riding your bike. FLECTR´s rotating, pulsing and moving reflections light up the entire rim, dramatically increasing one’s visibility, making bicycling much safer.

How it works. The arched profiles of modern bike rims offer a perfect base for an adhesive wide-angle reflector as there are multiple plains for reflection. The two-piece FLECTR 360 OMNI wraps around the rim from both sides and overlaps onto the rim vertex. The advantage: gap-free reflection from all sides.

flectr_360_reflector_panel_01

Are reflectors better than electric bike lighting? Reflectors have a big advantage over electric lighting – they do not require maintenance and are still there for you even if your lighting fails. But both, reflectors and bicycle lighting form a system and should always be used together. You decide how much safety you need to feel comfortable cycling.
