Copenhagen Parts, based in Denmark, wanted to create a light for commuters that was different than anything they’d encountered on the market. The lights have a slightly curved magnetic back to snap onto any magnetic surface. The lights turned on once they’re put in place and turn off when un-clipped from the frame.

While I prefer to commute with very bright lights (at least 150 lumens), these lights would make a great conversation starter. They’ll be available for purchase this autumn, but you can pre-order here.

More details after the break

The company will be launching two distinct versions, the Randonneur and Lode. The Randonneur has a machined aluminium body. The Lode will have a silicone rubber outer and be available in a range of colors. Both use battery-driven LED light sources.

The lens is designed to illuminate from the sides as well as straight-on to increase visibility. Significant testing has been done in order to ensure the lights can be  placed anywhere on the frame without fittings.

The company also sells a pretty sweet integrated handlebar and basket called the Bike Porter. The bars run a little narrow for my tastes, at only 50 cm (roughly 19.5″), I think I’ll stick to my regular bar and rack combo. For those interested, the Bike Porter is available in gold, blue, pink, silver, white, and black.

Good idea, wrong angle 😉

BBB is right. Really needs to be sliced at a 17 degree angle or so for most bikes. Would work on the front or rear that way, too…
