Kickstarter of the week.
Looking for a smarter bike light? Introducing the Xlerad, Auto-illuminating. Starts working when you start biking.
Two designers from Arcata California, John and Kyle, are developing some bright new technology. Here is their kickstarter video:
Some of the Xlerad features:
Xlerad is our approach to making the world’s smartest bike light.
-No buttons- it automatically turns on with movement.
-Insanely bright when needed- up to 1000 lumens!
-Unmatched performance by almost every measure.
-No wasted power means a longer battery life and lower heat.
Smart Mode- Variable 200-1000 lumens.
Fixed Mode – Fixed at 400 lumens.
5000mAh Lithium Ion rechargeable external battery pack
Smart Mode – 3.7 to 45 Hours, depends how fast you ride!
Fixed Mode – 10 hours
In riding terms, we trust it on multiple night rides without a recharge.
In commuter terms, it will easily last you all week.
We are using a multi-holed rubber strap, so it will accommodate all bar sizes and shapes.
