Light & Motion Vis 180 and Vis 360
Light & Motion recently unveiled their new Vis 180° and Vis 360° lights, which mark L&M’s entry into the taillight market. They were spurred on by the research that showed that in 30% of all bike accidents involving a motor-vehicle, the cyclist was hit from behind.
And so they developed the Vis 180° rechargeable taillight (shown at right). At 35 lumens, it claims to be significantly brighter than the competition, and it features directional amber side lights that ensure full 180° visibility. It recharges with a micro-USB cable and retails for $99.
The Vis 360° (top) is a helmet-mounted lighting system that aims to ensure complete visibility. They call it a All-In-One Commuter Safety Tool. The headlight is 110 lumens, the taillight is 4 lumens, both of which feature directional amber side lights. The system recharges with a micro-USB cable and retails for $169.
