Must Have Bike Gear | Planet Bike Super Flasher Rear LED Light

Posted By V Ol Blak On October 27, 2011 @ 12:08 am In Biking Monkie Style | 5 Comments

When I finally decided to buy an electric bike to replace my car, I knew I would need some powerful LED lights to keep me safe at night. I started with the basics, the tail light. Most of the time, when your on a bike here in Los Angeles, you have cars whizzing right past you just a few feet away and coming at you from the rear. That means the most important light is that rear tail light so it better get the quickly approaching drivers attention.

When I started looking around, most of the tail lights where all the same. Under powered and not that eye catching. Yes, they where LED lights, they where red, some flashed, but none of them screamed, look out. That was until I found the SuperFlash Stealth by Planet Bike. This light was different, it had a 1/2 watt Blaze LED light with a shaped lens and 2 Extreme LEDs with a visibility of up to a mile. When this thing is on, people can’t take their eyes off it. From the rear, it’s near blinding and from the side, it looks like a fireworks show. So, I bought two. One for the rear of my A2B Electric bike and one for the Wike Bike Trailer. The other cool thing about the light, is that its clear when off. It doesn’t standout or look ugly on the bike.

  • New color scheme, same great Superflash
  • ½-watt Blaze™ LED plus 2 eXtreme LEDs for visibility up to 1 mile
  • Unique, eye-catching flash pattern
  • Flashing and steady mode
  • “SuperFlash” mode is highly visible, even in daylight
  • Ultra compact vertical design is weatherproof, lightweight and durable
  • Includes bike mounts and clip mount for multiple mounting options
  • Up to 100 hours of run time on 2 AAA batteries (included)
  • You can buy the light on the Planetbike.com website for $29.99 or on Amazon.com for $22.99.
