All about our lights
Buyer's Guide | Lights
Do you tend to head off to work early, even before sunrise? Or are you used to make your way back home during the night? When darkness reigns, you want to shine a light on the road ahead of you and be seen yourself as well. We don't ike missing turns or running into potholes. That is why we have developed different types of bicycle lights that you can use in various situations. In general, you can make a distinction between 'to see' and 'to be seen'.
To see or to be seen
When you need to travel over unlit bike paths when riding to work early in the morning. Or when you go for a ride on a dark evening. You need to have good visibility on the road ahead of you. Nobody wants to be surprised by unseen gaps and holes. So, you need a bicycle light that illuminates the whole road and keeps you safe.
Do you always cycle through the city? On roads that are illuminated perfectly. In that case, you need bicycle lights that make you visible for other traffic during your ride. We talk about small lights that can easily be attached to a bicycle or your cycling clothes. These lights will give a maximum power of 150 Lumen and are price-friendly.

Specs of our lights
All our lights are made to last. This means not only durability but also long runtimes and intensity. Aspects that remain as good after some time as when first used. We make use as pleasant as possible by means of various settings in which you can use the lamp. Quality is reflected in the materials used, including the battery and the polished lenses.
Many people choose their bicycle lights based on the highest light output in Lumen. This can be very helpful, but does not tell the whole story. Want to know more about this? Then read our blog and discover the technical world of our lights.
Besides that, a lamp is more than just its strongest light output in Lumen. A bicycle light has several modes that give you the freedom to choose between extra-long battery life or extra power and intensity of light. Most of our lights have a low, standard, or city mode for use in traffic and a high or boost mode for those situations where extra light is needed. Our latest bicycle lights also have a daytime flash mode for daytime use. This provides extra daytime visibility when riding on roads shared with other traffic.
Every mode on our lights is designed to give you enough light in every situation. Want to know exactly how much light our lights provide in each mode? Take a look at our bicycle light table.
Almost all of our bicycle lights are equipped with a rechargeable battery. This battery does not need to be replaced as it can be charged via a USB charger. Some other lights are equipped with a replaceable battery that can be replaced when empty. All the batteries in our lamps are either lithium-ion batteries or polymer batteries from either LG or Samsung. If you want to know more about the batteries we use, read this blog about our batteries.
Our bicycle lights have polished lenses. These lenses are not cast directly into the lampshade but are acquired separately and optimized to generate the best light. This gives you a clearer beam of light and it runs more gradually into the dark at the edges, which makes for a more pleasant view. Read all about our light beam in this blog.
When cycling in the dark a light is key to use. Of course, it's impracticle to hold such a light in your hand while cycling. Therefore we got a line of different brackets and mounts to place on your bike so you can easily click your light on your bike and get it off when the ride is over.
