Come on Baby, Light My Bike Up


You know that it would be untrue, you know that I would be a liar, if I was to say to you, Girl, we couldn’t have a safer bike. If you are a cyclist, you know how riding at night is a huge safety concern. Making sure motorist see you and respect you and your bike is a must after dark, but tiny little lights or big extrusive lights are sometimes hard to remember to grab on the way out of the door and also pretty hard to see unless a motorist is right up on them.

Let me introduce you to Lumma. Designer, Octavian Richea has really put bike safety first with this design. Lumma is a set of bar grips that have both front and backlights as well as a laser guide for safer night riding. You bolt the rubber grip onto the handlebar, and plug the water-resistant solid aluminum module into the outside. Each module contains a lithium-ion battery that can be switched on and off easily and at full charge should get up to 50 hours of use.

Lumma has three different settings – flashing, 70 percent – output steady light or 100 percent – output steady light that are easily turned on via a rubberized switch. The laser guides also have the option of flashing or steady. With Lumma, unlike the center mounted lighting, motorists can see the full length and width of the bike making night riding much more enjoyable for cyclist and motorist alike.
