Frequently Asked Questions

Is 500 lumens bright enough to see and be seen?

500 lumens is a standard lumen output to not only be seen by other road users; it provides significant light to observe the road in front of you with clarity. Brighter lights offer more field-of-view.

Will the Urban's runtime last for an entire ride?

All Urbans can remain in High mode for 1.5 hours. If you are looking for more lumens over time, it would be suggested to purchase a brighter model. For Example: An Urban 1000 can maintain 500 lumens in its Medium setting for 3 hours!

Sidelights


Feature

Essential Side Visibility

70% of cyclist/motor vehicle collisions occur at intersections, the most dangerous area on a rider's route. Powerful lighting allows a motorist to distinguish a cyclist when traveling in a parallel direction of travel; when approaching from the side visible light is diminished and blends in with ambient light. Our engineers have solved this by integrating the industry's most powerful sidelights with a distinct amber 'pop' ensuring remarkable protective visibility through intersections.

Feature

Waterproof Reliability

Does a bike light really need to be waterproof? The number one cause of bike light failure - both from ultra-cheap 'blinkies' to premium lights - is water immersion. No matter if a rider gets stuck in a passing storm or finds condensation build-up before an early morning ride, having a light that is fully waterproof is essential for longterm reliability. Light & Motion builds the only cycling light brand committed to a product line with a certified IP67 waterproof rating.

Bike Lights & the FL-1 Standard

Light & Motion is the first bike light company to adopt and certify every light to the FL-1 Standard, a testing protocol to scientifically measure a light’s brightness, run-time, and water/impact resistance.  This gives you the consumer an accurate and honest way to evaluate lights and allows us to honestly stand behind our products because they have been certified to perform.
