Double O Bike Light

Rechargeable bike lights are big business, with theft resistance being the next nut to crack. Most lights are easily removable to make taking them with you a reality, and the Double O takes it an extra step with a magnetic fastening system. The Double O light bodies snap together when off the bike into a single unit, and the hole is large enough to pass a u-lock through if you’re looking to fairly inconspicuously and securely leave them behind. Pretty cool idea. The lights are USB rechargeable, with a 2 hour steady and 4 hour flashing runtime, with 80 lumens of front and 45 lumens of rear output. You’re definitely paying for the unique industrial design — the pair is available for Kickstarter preorder for $130.

    That’s a lot of coin for “be seen” lights.
