Bike Balls has three modes: two party modes where the light can be set to flash on and off in slow and fast patterns, and one that turns the light on solid.
Gently squeeze the Balls to turn the light on and switch between the modes. Gently squeeze again to turn the Bike Balls off.
Squeeze to activate multiple lighting modes.
We have designed the mounting strap directly into the silicone housing. The silicone strap wraps around a seat rail and then clips to itself. We've designed this mounting system to be secure enough to stay on during hard and bumpy riding, while at the same time being easy to put on and take off.
Bike Balls also feature a system so that they can be semi-permanently attached to your bike to prevent thieves from stealing your 'Balls (don’t you hate it when that happens). Simply feed one of the supplied zip-ties through the opening in the mounting strap, securing it in its closed position. You can leave your Bike Balls mounted securely in this fashion as your run errands in the city. The zip-tie can remain on even when it is time to replace the batteries.
Keep you Bike Balls on tight with a zip-tie.
We have experience and the capabilities to get Bike Balls produced, but we don't have the capital it takes to invest in tooling and to order our first production run. That’s where we need your help! For any pledge amount, you are supporting cyclist safety and visibility in a fun way. You can also help us reach our goal by sharing our campaign with your friends!
We are confident that we have come up with a great product that addresses all of our design criteria. We have made production quality prototypes that we are happy with and we feel good in progressing to the final product.
Before we commit to tooling we are going through one more design revision to make Bike Balls even better. We will be beefing up the strap and its clip to make it more durable, and we'll be looking at ways to minimize the weight of the silicone to optimize materials usage and to save on shipping costs. We have also designed the packaging, and some fun small rewards specially for the campaign.
If we are successful in reaching our goal, we can start on production of Bike Balls as soon as our campaign ends. The tooling and samples will take approximately 2 weeks, and production of the components will take another 2 weeks. Our packaging will be made in tandem with the Bike Balls. We will get the all the parts into our studio a week after that, and ship them out as fast as we can. We expect to get all of the orders out by the end August if not sooner, so you can show off your Bike Balls this summer!
