Lumma’s approach to bicycle lighting combines several unique approaches to create a sleek illumination system that’s almost invisible…until it’s not.
By combining front and rear lights into the bicycle’s grips, they give you a broader light pattern up front and allow others to gauge your oncoming speed thanks to the perspective of seeing the lights grow wider as you approach. They also combine bright red lasers that point down to create a mini bike lane that helps define your space to motorists coming up from behind. All of it’s packaged in a lock-on grip using an aircraft grade alloy shaft with integrated, USB-rechargeable battery…
The built in batteries are good for about 50 hours of continuous use, which they say is worth up to six weeks of commutes. The USB charging port is external, covered by a rubber weather seal.
Two base anodized colors, dark gray or brushed, are available with several accent colors. Front lights remain white, rear and laser side markers remain red. Both front and rear can run at 100% solid or intermittent, and the front has an additional 70% solid output level. The output meets all international standards and requirements for bicycle lighting.
