Anybody who rides a bike in the dark appreciates the importance of a bright and reliable headlight. The faster you cycle and the harder it is to see where you’re going, the more light you need – time to turn the high beam on! Simply pushing a button on the handlebars switches the headlight from low beam to high beam mode, which provides a maximum output of 1,600 lumens. The high beam is optimised to ensure sufficient range even when the fork dives. The accompanying 54 Wh battery is heated, weighs just 300 grams and provides up to 50 hours of power – making it particularly interesting for those who cycle a lot. Sensors automatically switch the headlight off and activate it if lighting conditions deteriorate. It goes without saying that the light has been approved as road-legal under German regulations.
Finally: an adequate lighting system that meets the needs of sporting cyclists too. With this headlight, even night rides on forest trails are safe. Thanks to the simple design, the battery and light are compatible with any bike model. The freely positionable high beam switch and an app that displays the charge status to the exact minute are equally convincing.
