Motorcycle Helmet Reflective Stickers
for reflective stickers for your helmet? Streetglo claims to have over 150,000
different designs, including reflective stickers, decals and striping for motorcycles, helmets,
cars, trucks and more, in every color, shape and size imaginable.
Many of the stickers don't appear to be
reflective until they're energized with a light source. This allows
for some interesting applications; for example, a helmet can be decorated
with similarly colored reflective stickers that are barely noticable during
daytime but which magically glow at night when illuminated by headlights.

While the naked women, German WWII helmets and "69" stickers aren't
really my cup of tea, I do like the skulls, the flames and especially the
"atomic radiation" and "biohazard warning" stickers. But hey, you can't account for taste
(mine or anyone else's)!
The stickers are made from a heavy-duty industrial reflective material
that has a metallic backing. This is the type of reflective sticker
material that is used for industrial and road signage. They're heftier
than some of the cheaper vinyl stickers found at motorcycle rallies.
The adhesive that Streetglo uses is very sticky, and once the sticker is
applied to the helmet, it's very hard or nearly impossible to reposition, so
make sure the work is laid out precisely on the surface before peeling off
Streetglo says that they've tried different types of
glues, but their formula will
help ensure that the product stays on the helmet or motorcycle surface and
can take the abuse of oil, weather and road grit and grime.
While the small stickers can be applied quickly and easily to a motorcycle
helmet, the larger designs take a bit more effort. The curved surface
of a motorcycle helmet makes it hard to bend large shapes to fit, but it can
be done. Streetglo has an
instruction page that steps you through the process. The larger
stickers can even be cut and then reassembled on the helmet, as long as you
take your time and patience.
Streetglo recommends that a small amount of a soapy water mixture
(dishwasing liquid and water) is used to apply the larger reflective
mixture lubricates the surface and allows the decal to be moved around until
it's in the correct position. The mixture eventually dries and the
sticker adheres with no problems. This is the same procedure
used to apply other types of stickers and decals and products like the
Scotchcal paint protector, and it
works fine in those applications also.
Reflective stickers help to make the rider more visible, because the
helmet is nearly always at the highest point on the bike, where it's most
likely to be noticed. Even a few square inches of reflective sticker
material can make a big
difference in your ability to be seen in traffic, especially at dusk and at
Streetglo also has reflective tape in assorted widths and colors, along
with reflective sticker kits for motorcycle helmets with a variety of
different shapes that can be applied as desired. Streetglo also makes
custom stickers. Their large variety of different reflective sticker
shapes and colors offers something for everyone, from cruiser owner to
