It could be amazing, but it doesn't come with the bits to fix it on the bike, and they don't sell spare bits at the store. If you are a DIY person, you can probably install it, but if you are not, it will be useless. The lastest one was my case, so I returned it straight away.

Hello,
The parts should come with the reflector. I'm sorry that they were missing from the packaging.
I'll ask the loyalty team to contact you and we will send you out a new unit.

Hinge is not sturdy enough
Used for 3 to 6 months
This is an excellent product in theory, and at the start of my rides it works well by ensuring other road users provide a reasonable gap when overtaking.

The main problem with the product is that the hinge is not stiff enough to resist air flow. Therefore, whilst I ride, the paddle is constantly folded backwards due to air resistance, and at times ends up flat against my bike, rendering it completely useless!!!

Future revisions of this product need to be designed so that the flag cannot bend farther back than 90 degrees (i.e. perpendicular to the bike).

Unfortunately I am unable to recommend the product as it stands since it is unable to stay folded out and therefore maintain a safe gap between myself and other road users.
Drivers do give you enough room initially
Air resistance causes flag to fold backwards
Response of the brand
Dear Sir,
Thank you for taking the time to send us your review.
I have forwarded your comments on to the product manager at b'Twin.  It is not normal that the refelctor bends back in this way.  
If you are not satisfied with the reflector you  are most welcome to return it to us for a refund.
Kind Regards,
Peter Lazarus UK Market Manager DECATHLON
BEST BIT OF SAFETY KIT
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
As an all year round rider & Commuter I found that in the winter dark early mornings, cars are constantly coming close & not giving me enough space, This has been absolutely the best thing I have put on my bike, it screams "Novice Rider be Aware " to them, hence they give me a wide berth & they are so frightened of not hitting it as a target that they make sure they wait if they cant over take safely.
ITS BRILLIANT.In fact it should be compulsory to have it on the bike.
easy to install & it does what it meant to
