Shining the Light on Fall Scooter Safety…
Fall is such a beautiful time of year! Green gives way to various shades of red, orange and vibrant yellows. As the temperature cools down we dig out our favourite cozy knits again and ice cream is replaced by anything warm with pumpkin spice or chocolate!
But fall also means that the days become shorter and the hours of darkness increase making visibility a challenge. For scooter riders, a change in safety equipment is a must to see and be seen! Reflective gear and lights will help others both on the roads and sidewalks notice you and reduce the chance of accident significantly. MICRO Scooters Canada offers a wide variety of products to help keep you safe in reduced light conditions.
A MICRO LED light is a great accessory for all scooters and kickboards. This bright light can be adjusted to shine constantly or blink quickly or slowly with a push of a button to suit your riding conditions. The light has an easy to mount silicon casing and can attach to either the handlebar or the steering column of your scooter.
A MICRO Red LED Magnet Light easily clips on the back of jackets or back packs and is cleverly held in place to make scooter riders more visible from behind.
As a colourful alternative, Scoot Beamz both reflect and light up when attached with Velcro straps to the top of your scooter steering column for maximum effectiveness. Choose from white, yellow, pink, blue and green.
To help make it super easy to keep kiddos extra safe, Mini and Maxi MICRO Deluxe Kickboards are now also available with bright LED white lights in the wheels that automatically turn on as soon as the scooter is being ridden! Parents will appreciate the simplicity of this built-in safety feature as there are no batteries to replace so you never have to worry about running out of power during your scooting adventure. Kids love how they make their favourite ride sparkle.
It is all about being noticed in reduced light conditions! The more you can be seen, the safer you can ride! Scooter adventures are to be fun, so get out there and explore with the right safety equipment this fall!
