Want to combine beautiful traditional design with a modern feature that adds to your safety and general awesomeness? Look no further, here is exactly what you are searching for – our BoneEdge Glow.
How does it work
Unlike conventional pigments, photo-luminescent fillers are not primary light reflectors, but are actual sources of light. They absorb radiant energy from sunlight (or artificial lighting) and convert it into longer wavelengths in the visible spectrum, thereby emitting it as light with the sensation of colours. Glow pigments will release light for up to 5-6 hours in darkness and “charge up” in 20-30 minutes.
Safety and durability
Glowing BoneEdge is harmless, non-toxic, non-radioactive and non-hazardous.
Your traditional paddle can have a nifty additional detail that allows you to paddle quietly in the dark, yet not loose sight of each other. The fluorescent eye on your blade is pretty cool and works all night but of course be aware that it is no substitute for proper safety gear that makes you visible to other crafts and vessels.
