Well, it's that time of year again. The time where daylight is at a minimum and darkness becomes our new friend. That's right, Daylight Savings has hit and it's going to be dark earlier and earlier. Bummer. But if you're anything like me you don't want to let the lack of light limit your time in the saddle so it's time to light up your life!
When it comes to light options there are tons of companies out there that make a variety of different styles, lumen levels, and battery type. That being said I'd like to focus on some lights that are perfect for those quick trips; whether it's a commute, a quick rip around town, or just cruising with some buds. I'm talking about Light & Motion’s new Vibe models. These little guys are super cool because you never have to worry about remembering to turn them off! Let me explain. Simply mount them on your handlebar, fork, seatpost, chainstay, wherever really, then start riding and the vibration from moving kicks them. Stop moving and about 30-45 seconds later they turn off all by themselves. How neat is that!?
Aside from that “no worry” feature they have some other pretty cool aspects. Caught in some unexpected rain? Waterproof keeps these babies going so you stay seen. Can't ever find a USB cable for charging? No need since you can plug these right into a computer with the built-in USB end. Have a case of the droppsies? Built super tough to withstand even being thrown at the ground. And let's not forget that the taillight is super bright so you can run it in the daytime to stay safe out there at all times!
