Sweet New Bike Lights from Cocksedge Studios, Planet Bike & Lumicycle

paul-cocksedge-studio-Double-O-bicycle-lights

Paul Cocksedge Studio’s new Double O bicycle lights not only look unique, they have more than one kind of safety and security built in.

The Double O lights put out 80 lumens up front and 45 lumens in the rear. They say the design uses less bright LED bulbs, but more of them, which creates a large hit of light that’s highly visible without being blindingly distractive to drivers or fellow cyclists. They charge in about 90 minutes via USB and have three modes: Steady (2.1 hours run time), Flashing (4.2 hours) and Eco (10 hours). Looks aside, which are very cool, what’s particularly clever is how you can secure them.

Check that out, plus video and lights from Lumicycle and Planet Bike below…

Say goodbye to stolen lights.

The lights’s neodymium magnets hold them securely in place, even over the roughest terrain they could find to test them on. That included riding a commuter bike down a set of concrete stairs.

Check out the Kickstarter campaign here, which is easily one of the best looking one’s we’ve seen in terms of graphics and layout. But what would you expect from a design studio, right?

PLANET BIKE

LUMICYCLE

Lumicycle InSight bicycle brake light with wireless function and blinking tail light

Lumicycle’s new InSight automatic brake light for bicycles uses internal sensors to detect slowing and turn on, helping alert drivers and other riders to a change in your pace. It’s all self contained, so no need for wires or other speed sensors to make it work. The body is machined from aluminum and it uses Cree red LED bulbs. Pre-order now for May delivery, price is £79.95. It also has standard blinking tail light functions, and there’s a matching head light, too, sold separately or as a combo package.

doubles as a tiny hemorrhoid pillow. triples as a teething ring.

It’s the guy’s last name. And he’s British. So despite the grade-school hilarity of the inclusion of “cock” in a name, you’d be kind of a douchebag for making fun of it.

First, I don’t see anyone making fun, really.

Secondly, lighten the F up.
