How They Work

RydeSafe Reflective Decals make you safer at night.

RydeSafe Reflective Decals are easy to install. You just peel and stick them to any clean flat surace to make it more visible to motorists at night.

 

 

Q: How Do They Work?
A: Science!

Well, that's the short answer. RydeSafe Reflective Decals are cut from an engineering-grade “conspicuity film” which contains microscopic glass spheres that reflect light back to its source. So no matter what direction the light is coming from, our stickers reflect it back. In the case of a pair of headlights, RydeSafe Reflective Decals reflect it right back to the driver’s eyes resulting in a more visible and thus safer user.
