Product Description

Product Description

With interests in bike touring, commuting, trail riding, back country exploration, camping, Rock climbing, and a plethora of other outdoor sports, heath's weekends are packed with what he calls product testing. This works out well for both heath and planet bike since he directs product development and takes every opportunity to indulge in product field testing. Heath comes to planet bike with 12 years in the bicycle industry; dabbling in everything from sales to national bicycle advocacy work, product development to working in a shop and building trail. Cycling has always been a big part of my life starting with my first bike, a 16 inch fixed wheel bike my dad retrieved from a muddy River bed, says heath. Whether it's hitting the trail, going to work, or going to the grocery store, sustainability and my impact on the environment are top priorities for me. I'm proud to be a part of planet bike where these priorities are both shared, and promoted.

Even better, the Blinky lights clip to just about anything--from handlebars to panniers--with handlebar brackets, a seat post mount, and a seat stay mount to get you started. As a result, you have no excuse to go unseen while riding. Each Blinky light, which comes with an ultra-compact weatherproof case, runs for up to 100 hours on a single CR2032 watch battery (included). The set is also backed by a limited lifetime warranty.

About Planet Bike
In November of 1996, Planet Bike was founded in Madison, Wisconsin. In many ways, Planet Bike began as a social experiment that dedicated itself to doing business in a different way. Instead of being just another company that develops and sells products with profit as its end goal, Planet Bike wanted to help bring about positive change for people, their communities, and the environment.

Despite being a simple machine, the people at Planet Bike have always believed that the bicycle has great potential to help improve the world and the lives of the people in it. From the start, they have embraced an alternative corporate purpose which seeks to help get more people on bicycles by making communities friendlier places for the self-propelled. By donating 25% of company profits to causes that promote and facilitate bicycle usage, Planet Bike hopes to make an impact.

Social experiments aside, Planet Bike was born from the heart of a cyclist with a goal of making innovative, high quality, and practical bicycle accessories. Simply put, they strive to design and develop the best bicycle products in the world. In the company's short ten year history, they have made important product innovations within the bicycle industry. Advancements include the 4-line computer which is now a standard in the industry and the world's first self-contained HID light. Not bad for a company that ten years ago started as a one man operation. Today, while still a small company, Planet Bike continues to evolve and improve their product line with the goal of always striving to build accessories that make it easier for people to ride their bikes. Since 1996, Planet Bike's financial support of the grassroots bicycle movement has totaled $500,000. By 2010, they have made a goal to donate $1 million to organizations that are dedicated to making America a friendlier place for cyclists.

This video is just to show how they look installed (on a new bike I've never ridden lol) and what kind of light they project. It was taken in almost total darkness with a Sony NEX-5N so the video is a bit grainy. I'll update this when I actually try them out.

UPDATE: So I finally tried them out at night. The red rear light seems to be fine. However, as others have mentioned, the front white LED simply does not put out enough light for you to see in the dark, which I knew was the case, but I just had to try. On the beach bike path, I plowed into sand drifts that I couldn't see in time and into the sand when I couldn't tell that the bike path had swerved. So, one for the DUH file, these are very good for being seen at night, but not to light your path.

They are cheap and work great. That is pretty much all there is to these. However, make sure that you are buying these in order to make yourself more visible to drives, and not to make late night rides more visible to you. They do offer some light on your pathway, but not enough to make it worth it if that is your goal. If, like me, you are simply looking for an inexpensive way to keep from getting hit by drivers at night, then this is one of your best choices.

These lights work well, seem to be sturdy in construction and one battery seems to last quite a while. I'm very pleased with them but I couldn't give them 5 stars due to the design of the white light.
I had been using them for about a week and had to take an extra early ride in to work. It was my first when it was dark out. When I turned on the white light on the handlebars it shone in a wide arc, over 180 degrees up and down and left and right. I couldn't see because the light was shinning in my face as well as everywhere else.
A piece of black tape on the top part of the light and I was soon on my way. An easy fix to this if it happens to you.
Still riding with it and it is still working well. It's getting a bit darker every morning this time of year.
As other have noted this light shouldn't be counted on to light your way in the dark (I usually ride on lighted streets) but it will make you much more visible to others on the road.

Update 4/12/08. Light mount on helmet modification.

As discussed in the original review, I've now mounted one of the rear lights on the back of my helmet, a Bell Aguila. The light fits extremely well in the back most indentation/air flow vent on the helmet in either the vertical or horizontal position. Better yet, I mounted it without modifying the helmet or the light and it can be removed in seconds.

I used four rubber bands and passed them around the "upright" for the base of skull "catch" on the helmet's liner portion. The ends of the rubber bands are pulled out and slipped over the clip for the light. Given that UV eats rubber here, I put a pipe-cleaner around the clip and the band as a failsafe should the rubber bands fail.

Pull the light out 1/4" and you can rotate it to the position you like best. A bit of wiggling when seating the light will get edges, clips, arms and such aligned and the light stays tightly, smoothly, in the back of the helmet.

Why all this effort you might ask? I'm a true believer. I'm alive because of Bell helmets and making myself visible (though I didn't do ENOUGH 'back then', I wouldn't be here if it weren't for my helmet). With kids, I will do everything in my power to make them visible and safe wherever possible.

In any event, at near zero cost, 2 minutes of "labor" and the slightest dash of creative brain power, you can install a light on your helmet that makes you VASTLY more visible via the (higher) location, the movement imparted by pedaling, gossiping with your riding partner or just the movement of your head as you look around in wonder.

This tiny modification makes me MUCH more relaxed when riding around traffic and makes our rides much more enjoyable.

Don't know what those who dislike these lights expect for 10 bucks, but they deliver quite well, as promised. Note that Planet Bike refers to them as "Safety" lights. No, they don't illuminate (very well) the ground in front of you, BUT they do make a bicycle highly visible from some distance, thus enhancing the cyclist's safety. They are small and lightweight, and easily fit in a pocket when not in use. It's true, as some have complained, that the mounting brackets are somewhat fragile, made of thin plastic, but if you're reasonably careful when you fit them over your bars or tubes you'll have no problem. Cripes people! you get two led lights with 2 settings (constant light or intermittent), 2 mounting brackets with screws for 10 bucks!!! What more do you need to give something 5 stars? So long as you treat them like the tiny, somewhat fragile items which they are, I suspect they will provide years of quality service.

If you're looking for lights that will light up a dark road, these are not for you. But otherwise, they're just as expected. I was easily able to mount them on my bike, they come with batteries, and they snap right off and fit right in my bag when I lock my bike up.
