What are Hokey Spokes? 

Hokey Spokes are unique bicycle safety lights that allow riders to display computer-generated images and text inside the spoke cages while riding at night. Not only are Hokey Spokes fun and interesting, but they also provide important side visibility, which is mostly unavailable in today's standard bicycle lights.


Hokey Spokes consist of transparent "blades" that attach to your bicycle spokes. As these blades spin during riding, a computer inside the blades modulates the internal LED lights so that design images and text appear.

The user can decide how many spokes they want to place on the bicycle wheel. Up to 6 "Blades" can be placed on each wheel. The more blades, the more visibility and persistence of vision at lower speeds.

Hokey Spokes are designed so that they fit virtually any mountain or road bike with a wheel diameter of 24" or greater. Hokey Spokes can be used on front and back wheels at the same time.

Each Hokey Spoke contains a number of designs and a customizable text message. The designs play and switch automatically or the text message can be frozen to play consistently all the time. Play mode is selected by using one of the waterproof keys located on the master blade.

Each Hokey Spoke blade houses 3 AA batteries.

Hokey Spokes is great for nighttime commuters, bicycle couriers, police riding units, bicycle shop promotional advertising, and others.
