Bottom line

Wheel Brightz incorporate 20 colored LEDs in a light strip, creating wild effects while your bike is in motion, and good looks when stationary. They offer unparalleled visibility from either side. Even so, you’ll need to use separate front and rear lights in traffic. While the previous model employed a screw-down unit to fasten Wheel Brightz to your spokes, the newest version uses a rubber strap. By most reports, it isn’t durable. Packs have snapped and detached numerous times. They have the potential to jam and stop your wheel. Improvised reinforcement is recommended.

Wheel Brightz | Wheel Brightz Update

I’m going to install them on the 2004 Electra Ghostrider cruiser bike. I’m not really sold on the new mounting system. It uses a strap. The old mounting system clips right to the spokes. I think it’s much more robust. Those ones are four years old, still work like a top.

These are a failed product, in my opinion. It lasted 23 days. The plastic strap snapped. It fell down into the wheel, banged around and tore itself right off of the LED light strip and hit the pavement at 37 mph. It’s completely screwed. Wouldn’t really recommend this!

Wheel Brightz and Go Brightz for Your Bicycle

A great way to be seen and stay safe when riding at night. My bike has the disc brakes on them, so took a bit longer to install, but still easy. Weather resistant. Fun. Wheel Brightz can be cut to fit your wheels. Exceeded my expectations.

WheelBrightz Blue Color Unboxing and Installing and Review Video

In the dark, they look amazing. They even light up the ground and a lot of people will be able to see you a lot better. Unfortunately, some Wheel Brightz do not have this kind of mount.
