Serfas Thunderbolt LED Headlight/Taillight

Interbike Lights

Serfas is well known for their saddles, but for 2013 they are expanding their product line in a huge way. One category of bike products that they are making waves in, is bike lights. Shown here are their new Thunderbolt LED commuter lights that come in a 35 lumen taillight version or a 90 lumen headlight version. At 50 grams, the Thunderbolt is very light and uses a USB interface to recharge, so you won’t have to spend a ton of money on disposable batteries.

The Thunderbolt is available from your local Serfas dealer now and the MSRP is $45.00 It comes in 7 eye catching colors (Black, White, Red, Blue, Pink, Green, Yellow ). The silicone body is water-resistant which is great for all weather riding. The silicone straps are flexible and allow multiple mounting options.
