ABOUT the MAGNETIC Bike Lights
Winters are dark, cold and long so we get the importance of good bike lights. The trouble is that there are hardly any good looking bike lights. We wanted something that looked good, worked well and, most importantly, could be fitted and removed instantly. The answer was obvious – magnets.
Magnets and steel tubes are an obvious match but we’ve spent a lot of time working on selecting the right components and perfecting the details so that they will fit to different tube diameters and stay there. And the cleverness doesn’t end there. The lights turn on when placed on the bike and automatically switch off when removed. For steel frames, they work outstandingly. For other materials, you’ll have to look elsewhere. Sorry, but that’s physics for you.

The goal of the campaign is to secure enough pre-orders for the product to keep manufacturing costs down, thereby making the lights affordable to everyday urban bike riders.
The campaign, whose funding goal is set at $50,000, serves as the launching pad for an intense 18-month development phase and comes in the wake of the company’s first product, the award-winning but premium-priced Bike Porter. Says Copenhagen Parts co-founder Mads Kjoeller Damkjaer, “We thought long and hard about how we wanted to follow up on the momentum created by the Bike Porter, and decided that a product that nearly every urban bike rider could use was a good path to follow.
