Where can LED bike lights go?
There are 3 most popular places to mount lights on a bike: head, tail, and wheels.
Headlights, also called “to see” lights, can go onto the handlebar and the front wheel fork.
These have to be bright since they light up your way, as well as signal any oncoming traffic.
Tail lights, also called “to be seen” lights, can go onto seat risers, seat posts, bike rack, and back wheel fork.
These can be dimmer since their only function to signal anyone behind you.
Wheel lights typically are mounted onto the spokes.
These create the most decorative looks as well since you can experiment with locations on the spokes.
When the bike moves and the wheels spin, beautiful patterns can be created with light.
Furthermore, some lights – usually silicone ones – can be attached to helmets and backpacks.
As a rule of thumb, lights should be positioned far from each other because that makes them more visible and safe for the cyclist.
How many lumens are necessary for a bike light?
This depends on what you need the light for.
If you are marketing bike lights to people that need them for daytime, then about 100 lumens will be enough.
For urban commuting lights, you need anywhere from 50 to 200 lumens.
Headlights for rural riding should have 400-600 lumens, whereas tail lights require 60-70.
If you want to market lights to campers and trail riders, you need 600+ lumens
It is recommended to choose a slightly higher range of lumen output to make run time for the necessary output longer.
Also, note that headlights need to be brighter than tail lights, so for a 500 lumen headlight, it is enough to use a 100 lumen tail light.
Does the beam angle matter?
Beam angle depends on the type of biking.
For urban commuting, you should have a narrow and focused beam since there are street lights around.
For rural roads and trails, you need a wide beam for better peripheral visibility.
COB lights tend to produce such wide beams.
What are some types of beams?
There are many different types of light beams, but the most popular ones are spot, flood, and combination.
Spot beams can travel very far and have a focused light.
Thus, they are good for riding on out-of-town and rural roads where there aren’t obstacles, but the person needs to see into the distance.
Flood beams have a wide beam angle and are good of off-road and trail biking when peripheral vision is key.
Combination beams are versatile and can be used for both roads and trails.
They are ideal for rural roads that tend to have obstacles, as well as difficult trails when the user needs to see around and out.
Additional beam types are driving, diffused, and scene.
Driving beams are uniform beams that are also versatile for roads and trails.
Diffused beams are like flood beams, but they don’t reach as far into the distance, so they can be used on rural roads with street lights or when passing oncoming traffic.
These are also good because they would not drain the battery as much.
Scene beams are also very wide beams, but instead of “flooding” a distant area with light, they illuminate the area close to the bike.
Thus, the person will get a very good all-around view, but not far out, so this could be used on park trails and city roads.
What is the difference between single and double LED lights?
Multiple LED lights connected together, such as with double lights, provide a 3D-like rendering of the area.
This results in a close to daytime illumination instead of single-shadowed and harsh one.
It provides more details of the road or trail.
Thus, camping cyclists would appreciate this.
Single lights are a little harsher on the eyes, but they are also cheaper and easier to handle.
Thus, you can market single lights to practical people, while double and multiple lights can be marketed to campers, hikers, and extreme bikers.
What are some important light terms?
Besides lumens, the industry also uses lux and candelas to describe the performance of LED bike lights.
Lux is the area that a certain number of lumens can effectively illuminate.
Knowing this can help you market your product better and to a more specific audience.
Candelas measure the intensity of light in the hotspot.
It is related to lux and can help you choose the right intensity.
Should LED bike lights be able to withstand different weather conditions?
Bike lights surely must be weather-sealed, but how much depends on what type of riding they are for.
For urban commuting, the lights should be waterproof to IPX4 – against splashing water.
It also should have a good dust-proof rating.
It is also good to have some vibration and fall protection, but not necessarily.
For trails, the lights should have IPX6 waterproof rating, a very good dustproof rating, as well as a rugged complexion to withstand falls from at least a meter.
Finally, vibration and shaking from the road should be accounted for as well.
Rural roads need specifications somewhere in between those for urban and trail biking.
What are some decorative LED bike light options?
Wheel lights have immense decorative potential.
You can request any color any pattern.
These lights can either go right on the spokes or on the frame of the wheel.
They are very eye-catching and could be used in cycling races.
Plus, there are small valve lights.
When placed in different locations on the spokes, these lights can produce all sorts of colors and patterns when the wheel is turning.
There are also decorative LED lights for the frame of the bike itself.
They are usually COB lights.
Any decorative bike light can be marketed to artistic people, people that do racing contests, performers, flash-mob partakers, and even some sports photographers.
How long does an LED bike light last on a full charge?
An LED bike light can last anywhere from 2 to 80 hours depending on the mode they operate in and on their lumen output.
For example, a standard flashlight in “high” mode can work for 5 hours, while in “strobe” mode it lasts for 10.
How far can a light beam travel?
This depends on the lumen output the beam type.
Thus, consult our team for more details.
For example, with a beam angle of 85 degrees, an 800 lumen light can reach 650 feet of illuminated distance, which is almost 200 meters.
Normally, headlights should be seen by others from 200 meters, while tail lights should be seen from 50 meters.
How many modes do LED bike lights have and what are they for?
LED bike lights can have 3-5 light modes.
High mode will provide more light, like a floodlight.
This could be used during the day to grab the attention of drivers.
Also, intense light is good for trails.
Low and medium modes could be used in urban and rural areas.
Strobe and SOS modes are used to signal danger or plea for help, so they shouldn’t be used much.
Flash mode is similar to strobe, only slower.
This one can be used to signal to other drivers.
However, brighter flash modes shouldn’t be used on headlights because it will disorient oncoming traffic.
Meanwhile, flash on tail lights is very useful.
Chasing is when light ‘runs’ from one side of the fixture to the other.
This is also used to grab the attention of drivers and is better for tail lights.
What are some charging methods for LED bike lights?
There are 3 main charging methods you can choose from: USB, solar, and an attached battery.
USB-charged bike lights are very convenient.
They provide a high lumen output, and are easy to charge – even from a laptop.
Also, they don’t need extra wires to be attached to the bike.
This is what an average cyclist would use.
The only thing to keep in mind is that the USB slot has to be water – and dustproof even more than the rest of the bike light.
Solar batteries are great for cyclists that ride or live in sunny places.
These are easy to install and require no maintenance since it charges by itself.
Usually, a solar-powered light can work for 4 hours after 2 hours of charging.
These can produce a good lumen output, but beware that solar panels can overheat and malfunction sometimes.
Some high-power lights need a battery pack to be attached to it at all times.
This prolongs the bike light’s life, but it also presents mounting and handling difficulties.
It is great for trails because of a longer life and more powerful light output, but an extra battery and cords could also be frustrating.
Thus, if you are going for this type of charging, make sure to design it with this in mind.
What is another design feature I should think of?
One very underrated feature of bike lights is a side slot.
Cyclists don’t only need light from the front and from the back, but also from the side.
This increases the person’s overall safety, and many brands forget about it.
Side slots let some light escape to the side to alarm turning traffic.
Another side lighting solution is a light that can be mounted to the ends of the handlebar that look to the sides.
Which light colors are better to use?
Basically, headlights should be white or variations of white, while tail lights should be red.
This is because headlights need to be powerful, while tail lights are there only to be seen by drivers – red light doesn’t take much energy and is very visible.
Headlights are typically a neutral white or a cool white because it is bright.
However, this light can also be tiring for the eyes, so including a soft, warmer light alternative is nice for people that bike a lot.
Tail lights could also be green, but red is still preferred.
Normally, red and white alternating strobe is the best for daytime use.
How flexible should the mount angle be?
Ideally, the light’s angle should be adjustable up and down.
Making it flexible from side to side is not practical and can actually be a nuisance.
Also, the bike light should be more flexible for low angles.
The light should be aimed at the ground since there could be road hazards.
Meanwhile, flexibility for higher angles is not needed as much.
What features can be added to LED bike lights?
Besides other specifications, you can also request LED bike light with a horn speaker, a bike computer, and a laser pointer.
Horn speakers are very useful to signal and warn other drivers, increasing the cyclist’s safety.
You can get horns that are audible from 20 meters away, have several sound presets and volume settings.
A bike computer is an interface built into the bike light.
It can tell the bike’s current speed, average and maximum speed, trip distance, cumulative distance, and time.
This is very useful for all cyclists, but especially for those that bike a lot and far.
This feature also displays the battery charge.
Finally, a laser pointer is usually a feature for tail lights.
It has 2 rays of light that fall onto the ground to show up as a light path on the sides of the bike.
This helps drivers see the bike better from a distance and judge how much space it needs.
What are some mounting designs?
Some mainstream mounting designs include a velcro strap, a screw with a bracket, and a stretchy rubber band.
Velcro and rubber are great because they are versatile.
But they do wear out with time, especially if remounted often.
Rubber is more durable, but can snap when it gets older.
Velcro is the easiest one to adjust.
Screws with brackets are very secure and sturdy, but also run the risk of cracking.
These all work fine with regular circular handlebars and seatposts.
However, aero bars, non-circular bars, and bars with larger than normal diameters need different mounts.
Aero bars are elongated and flattened, so screws with brackets and velcro wouldn’t work for it.
The solution is a rubber string mount that holds the light in place.
What materials are LED bike lights made from?
Just like flashlights, bike lights are made from aluminum and ABS plastic, with the plastic being more popular.
ABS has good rugged qualities and is fairly light – perfect for bike lights.
Aluminum is also sturdy and a little more impact-resistant.
Also, some bike lights have silicone bodies.
These lights can be mounted onto the cyclist’s helmet or backpack, and silicone makes it easy to do.
Silicone is also good because the mount is more flexible and versatile.
What are the possible LED bulb types?
You can have either 5mm LEDs, surface-mounted (SMD) or a COB light.
Bike lights can have 5mm LEDs, which are individual lights with 2 long prongs.
These are great for flashlights and bike lights, especially those for which you don’t need much light output.
They also take less current.
Bike lights can have any number of LEDs, starting from one to any other number.
A higher number of individual LEDs help customize and vary color and brightness.
These usually are surface-mounted LEDs.
They can also increase the area occupied by LEDs, resulting in more control over the design of beam angle and type.
Bike lights can also be COB, or chip-on board.
This LED technology looks like a continuous shining strip of light.
This type of LED provides ultra-wide beams and can be designed into different shapes and lengths of strips.
Also, COB lights have more LED diodes than SMD lights.
What does T6 mean?
LED light manufacturers bin their lights based on luminous flux (lumen), color rendering (CRI), and forward voltage.
These characteristics show the quality of the product.
There are different binnings used by Cree as an industry standard.
The lights are tested for minimum and maximum lumen output at a constant current.
T6 bin can provide from 280 to 300 lumens, which is very efficient.
At higher current, the lumen output may be higher as well.
Why should I sell LED bike lights?
LEDs are on the rise. They are also the most efficient lights.
Bikes are also on the rise because of the eco-friendly movement and the rise in fuel costs.
An influx of bikes also mean a demand for LED bike lights!
