These bike lights are the Volkswagen of bike lights. They are simple to use; just mount them and basically forget about them. Because they are permanently mounted, you will always have them with you (when you are on your bike, that is), so basically, it's impossible to forget them. They don’t have an ON/OFF button, as they are always on whenever you cycle, which makes you extra safe in traffic, both day and night.
The bike light produces its own environmentally friendly induction power by means of a coil in the light itself and magnets on the bicycle spokes – completely without the use of batteries. The light output corresponds to that of an ordinary battery lamp with fresh batteries.
These exact bike lights became world-famous about 10 years ago when they were used in a study in which they proved to reduce the risk of being involved in a traffic accident by a whopping 32%. That effort brought home the Eurobike Gold Award for the lights' focus on traffic safety, the environment, innovative functionality and overall concept.
Magnet-powered bike lights mean no more dead batteries, no forgotten bike lights, no friction when you cycle – just lights that are always on.
Mounting the bike lights is quick and easy, as they are mounted on the hub. If your bike wheels have quick-release, you'll need these adapters as well.
The hub-mounted bike lights come in two versions:
SL100 SERIES The bracket is made of painted form-pressed steel. It is designed for all bikes with V-brakes and coaster brakes.
SL200 SERIES The bracket is made of stainless steel, which beautifully matches the bike’s roller or disc brakes. It is designed for all bikes with roller brakes or disc brakes (max. 160 mm/6 inches).
