Mission Bicycle Co has introduced its night-illuminating bicycles that will enable your vision on any given late night ride.

This retro-reflective city bike is what all avid cyclists have been waiting for. The entire frame is sprayed with retro-reflective coating, with hundreds of thousands of tiny transparent spheres embedded in a top layer of powdercoat.

While the sun is out, the Lumen bike appears like any other city bike. It’s when the sun goes down that it all becomes clear. When illuminated by any light source, such as a car’s headlights, each of the thousand microscopic spheres reflect light back to the original source, thus creating an illuminating effect that will make you much more visible in the depths of the dark night.

Available as a frameset or a complete bike, it features both single-speed and internal gearing, and is the bike for any cycling enthusiast who wants a safer, more illuminating journey.
