ClicknRide: Quick-Release Turn Signals for Off-Road Riding

 Quickly convert your road-going dual sport into a trail-ready dirt bike.

Published on 08.29.2019

It’s almost a law of nature: If you ride a dual sport or adventure bike off road, you will eventually snap off a turn signal. A tree, a rock, your buddy’s handlebar… something will leave your blinkers dangling, or missing.

When it happens, you will be introduced to the sticker shock of OEM parts pricing. And then, if you’re like most people, you’ll resort to duct tape or search the aftermarket for a more durable, cheaper solution. There are plenty of them out there, but the CLICKnRIDE from Australia is a “why didn’t I think of that?” kind of alternative.

ClicknRide quick-release blinkers for off-road riding
A quick-release plug lets you remove the signal lights in seconds. No tools – simply click them out by hand and stash them safely in your backpack while you go off-road.

It’s a simple idea: You can’t break your turn signals if they aren’t there in the first place. You ride to a trail, stop for a moment and pull the signals off without any tools. Then stash them in a safe place while you channel your inner Graham Jarvis, and click them back in place when you’re ready to hit the highway again. Safe, quick and legal.

The signal unit is a dust-, water- and vibration-proof bayonet design featuring Philips amber LEDs and an ultrasonically sealed lens. It snaps into a socket that’s permanently attached to the bike and wired into the turn signal circuit. A rubber cap keeps dirt and water out of the socket when the signals are off the bike and incorporates a locking tab to help secure the signals when they are in place.

The quick-release blinkers have no moving parts to wear out and each part is securely fastened and sealed to withstand the harshest environments.

The current version of the product is the second generation. Reports are that it’s much improved over the original design, and cheaper too. Not as cheap as a couple wraps of duct tape, but definitely cleaner looking.

 A set of two with sockets and spacers is $79.95. Depending on your bike, you may also need resistors to make the LEDs work correctly. CLICKnRIDE’s plug-and-play resistors are $12 a pair and you need one for each individual signal, or two pairs for four lights. If you know your way around a RadioShack and a wiring diagram, there are cheaper options. CLICKnRIDE also sells a handy storage pouch for $18 to keep the dismounted signals from bouncing around when you are on the trail. Components are also sold separately should you lose a signal or break a socket.

One thought on “ClicknRide: Quick-Release Turn Signals for Off-Road Riding

  1. cool concept, but would like them to add a 1/4 turn lock. I am worried that the vibration on some dual sports would work themselves out of the socket.
