What is the Radlicht Bike Lighting System?
Radlicht is a set of aerodynamic tubes that are connected to the spokes of your bike wheel. They’re made from a very light and strong material, filled with a special gas illuminated with powerful LEDs installed from both sides of every tube. This makes the tubes ultra-bright but at the same time not blinding to drivers. Radlicht represents the first fully functional side lighting solution; more specifically, the first solution based on a spoke mounted design!
How Does It Work?
Radlicht works by creating the appearance of a brightly lit, solid colored disk as your bike wheel spins. All of the footage in our video was made using our prototypes.
How Heavy Is It?
Total weight with battery block is less than 100 grams (3.5 ounces). The tubes together weigh approximately 30 grams (one ounce). The weight of the tubes is distributed evenly around the wheel.
How Long Does It Work?
Radlicht works for more than 10 hours on a charge. The rechargeable battery block mounts on the wheel hub so it doesn’t change the balance of the wheel. All parts are water and shock resistant. Radlicht has been tested over and over in rain and snow as well as in the city and forest to make certain that it survives any weather conditions.
