Holiday Gift Guide: LumaGlo

by Khem Suthiwan

 

The LumaGlo Crossbelt is the next generation of wearable safety gear. Its multi-colored, moving patterns hold the ultimate attention-grabbing power in even the heaviest traffic and most inclement weather conditions.

Whether you commute on your bike or just looking for a simple way to make yourself visible during low-light conditions, the LumaGlo Crossbelt is a great solution. You can wear it as a belt or a sash. Lights illuminate in different colors, moving patterns, and its speed sensors even sync the lights to turn bright red when you stop, in order to alert others around you.

The LumaGlo Crossbelt is flexible, lightweight (135g) yet durable (rugged polyester blend), folds up easily for storage when not in use, and has a USB rechargeable battery. It is also available in two sizes (S/M and L/XL), giving users the flexibility to wear as a belt or while wearing a backpack.

As more and more cyclists take to the roads, and visibility to motorists and other cyclists becomes more important, the LumaGlo Crossbelt is a definite must-have for anyone trying to keep the rubber side down.

Holiday Gift Guide: Ravemen CR900 Front Light and TR20 Rear Light

 

By Alison Freeman

One light – every possible scenario covered. Need a daytime running light for really, really long rides on country roads? Check. Need a super bright flood light for nighttime bike commuting? Check. Need to change the brightness of your light on the fly as the sun rises? CHECK! The CR900 Front Light by Ravemen has you covered for every biking option out there. Standard brightness modes range from 100 to 900 lumens, and you can get up to 24 hours worth of blinking in the “rapid flashing” mode. The provided mount easily attaches the light to your handlebars, the touch pad allows you to change the brightness mode and also displays remaining battery life, and if that weren’t enough already, there’s a provided remote control that you can mount near the hoods so you don’t even have to change hand position in order to change the light’s brightness. I mean, how’s that for convenient?

Pair the CR900 with the TR20 and you’ve got the perfect set of lights for your bike. The quick release clamp of the TR20 can be mounted to your seat tube … or your saddle bag, or your backpack, or the back of your helmet. With a battery life of up to 10 hours and a light designed for visibility from the back and the side, you’re sure to be noticed.
