Bike Rack Lights with John Shinstock of Kody Technologies | EP 114

Posted by on

Hey, everybody! Welcome back to a FUN episode of the Area 13 Ebikes Podcast. If you're new to The show, this is THE place where you can learn all about electric bikes, products related to them, the people behind the scenes, and more!

I'm Jessica, part of The team at Area 13. 

If you have a bike rack or you want to get one, today’s episode is something you don’t want to miss. The products featured will ensure your safety, eliminate your worry, and reduce your accident potential.

Kody Technologies develops tail light systems for bike racks and other cargo devices that block a vehicle's existing tail lights. As avid bikers and outdoor enthusiasts⏤and with a family of five bikers⏤the Shinstock family noticed their signal lights were always blocked by bikes and gear,  prompting safety concerns about both their family and their equipment. 

John Shinstock is half of the dynamic duo for Kody Technologies, and is a manufacturing engineer who has worked in a variety of industries including automotive, subsea robotics and building products. 

Kody Technologies offers high-quality, rugged rack lights that amplify user visibility and promote safety. Plus, they are proudly made in the USA.

This is the Area 13 Ebikes Podcast.

In today’s episode you’ll learn more about: 

  • What do you need when using a bike rack to make sure you’re seen by other drivers?
  • Why is this product different from others on the market?
  • Can they be used on all bike racks?
  • What are other drivers and riders saying about this product?
