These are not big or bright lights. Rather, they are incognito lights that disappear into your bike and allow you to be seen in a pinch when you’re roaming the dark streets. They’re stealthy until you need them and that is their biggest asset.

Handlebar mounting is done with very slick strap that can be tightened based on the rider’s preference. The same strap is used for standard and oversized handlebars. At first we found the strap too long and found the excess bothersome but we realized we can loop the strap back in the pin and tuck it neatly. It can be aimed left to right.
