Since 2005, over a million cyclists have fitted Reelight’s patented magnet powered lights onto their bikes. An independent Danish University’s study of Reelight’s lights, has recently shown that lights on a bike both day and night reduce the number of bike related accidents by 32%.

The second generation of battery-free magnet lights from the Danish company Reelight allows a large number of possibilities for flexible fitting on the bike. There is a wide choice of lights available, some even with built-in, E-marked reflectors.

Reelight’s bicycle lights are based on the electrodynamic induction principle and generate their own energy via two magnets mounted on the spokes. A small generator with a discreet cable takes the power to the light, and electricity is induced each time the wheel spins. This means that cyclists using Reelight have lights on their bike day and night – completely without using any batteries.

The lighting system is very flexible as it can be fitted on various different places on the bike depending on the individual cyclist’s requirements. At the front, the lights can be placed on the fork crown, the basket or the handlebar, and at the back on the seat post or the luggage carrier. Thanks to their wide-angle optics, both the new SL500 and SL600 series have a greater spread of light than Reelight’s previous models. As an extra feature, the SL600 series also has a built-in reflector, approved with the E-mark.
