PASSWIDE! This amazing innovation is the ultimate in safety and convenience for all types of cyclists.
Are you tired of getting buzzed by motorists passing too closely? Are you sick of not getting the road respect you deserve and the safe passing distance you are entitled to by law? Whether you're an all-weather hardcore commuter, a sunday cruiser or a parent shuttling the kids around by bike, this is the accessory you've been waiting for!
The PASSWIDE safety flag has two positions, vertical and horizontal. In the vertical position, the PASSWIDE unit functions like an ordinary safety flag and stands up directly behind the cyclist. When the rider ventures onto roads with less than optimal cycling conditions, the PASSWIDE flag can instantly be changed to the horizontal position. The PASSWIDE safety flag turns high stress routes into a walk, well actually, a bike in the park!
When an overtaking motorists see the flag in the horizontal position they PASSWIDE! The extended flag gives motorists a target to go around, a target that isn't your body or your bike! It works great!!
The PASSWIDE Safety Flag Provides: Improved safety and comfort.
More confidence on the road.
The PASSWIDE unit bolts onto most rear racks using a the heavy duty plastic baseplates provided. The baseplates span rack bar spacings up to 2.5in (6.5cm). One plate is on the top on the rack and the other is below, basically creating a 'rack sandwich'. The spring-loaded hinge assembly keeps the reflective flag in the desired position, either vertical or horizontal.
