“We contacted Spanninga as our best possible partner to design a new bicycle head light which could be integrated in our UC1.5 stems,” explains Thomas Beger, Bike Product Manager at Scott Sports. “Our main requirements were the aero dynamic design in combination with a high output of light.

“The result of our joint project is a nicely designed and well integrated head light featuring one ultra-bright LED with Spanninga’s Reverse Beam Technology reaching up to 40 Lux light output and equipped with Safe-Stop function. Obvioulsly it complies with STVZO German requirements.” The new light comes in five versions: the Silence, the Silence Evo, the E-Silence, the E-Sub Sport and the E-Silence Speed.

“The cooperation with Spanninga was smooth and quick. Communication went very well from the beginning,” states Thomas Beger, Bike Product Manager at Scott Sports.
