In Copenhagen we ride all year round – through snow, rain, winter, and darkness; you could say we’ve learned to deal with cycling about in dreary weather. In the winter, we have stretches where the light only peeks up but a few hours before falling quickly behind the southern horizon. The only way to keep cycling in the dark is with the help of a trusty set of bike lights.
By combining magnets and LEDs we have created a bike light that looks good, works well and can be fitted and removed instantly – ‘cool and convenient’ you might say.
Magnets and steel tubes were an obvious match. But to get it just right we’ve spent countless hours selecting the right components and perfecting the details so that the lights will fit to different frames and stay put. The prototypes have been tested for several months so as to make sure that they:
- Are easy to fit anywhere on the frame
- Have the right angle to optimize visibility to other road-users
- Stay put; regardless of the road surface
The lens is designed to illuminate from the sides as well as straight-on to increase visibility. The fact that they can be placed anywhere on the frame without fittings also makes it possible to use multiple sets to further aid visibility to other road users.
Magnetic bike light follows new danish regulations for bicycle lights which has the highest standards we have come across.
