Safety

BEFORE USING YOUR NEW SPINERGY WHEELS, PLEASE TAKE SOME TIME TO FAMILIARIZE YOURSELF WITH THE INFORMATION IN THIS MANUAL. CYCLING CAN BE A DANGEROUS AND POTENTIALLY LIFE THREATENING ACTIVITY. ALWAYS WEAR A HELMET WHEN RIDING A BICYCLE. SEE THE OWNER’S MANUAL THAT CAME WITH YOUR BICYCLE FOR ADDITIONAL SAFETY INFORMATION.

  • U.S. Consumer Product Safety regulations for COMPLETE bicycle sales require “side reflectors” mounted on the spokes of each wheel. Wheels packaged for sale as part of a complete bicycle have a reflector pack included. For WHEEL ONLY sales, reflectors are not included and must be purchased separately. If you ever ride at dusk or at night, see your Spinergy dealer to purchase reflectors for your wheels.

  • Riding at dusk or at night is dangerous! If you choose to ride at dusk or at night, do not rely solely on the CPSC required reflectors that came with your bicycle. Use a front and rear lighting system. Supplement your lighting system with at least one strobe light, and wear light-colored reflective clothing. Your local bicycle dealer can provide you with help and advice in purchasing and installing additional reflectors and visibility gear. Note that the unique configuration of your Spinergy wheel has additional space where you can easily add additional reflective decals. If you commute by bicycle, or ride at night, you should add additional reflective material to your wheels. Check your state’s laws. Lights are required for riding at dusk, night, or dawn.

  • ALWAYS check your quick releases before EACH ride and after every fall to ensure that they are properly engaged.
