Being Seen From All Angles Has Never Been Easier
We understand being able to see in the dark is important, but we also believe that so is being visible to cars. A recent study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) showed 27% of bicycle accidents are side impacts and 30% of fatalities occur in intersections (between 2010-2017). Being seen from all angles while cycling has never been easier. The Grid Side Beacon was imagined to work in with head/tail lights to keep you more visible from a full 360 degrees. Designed to be mounted to either side of your fork with reusable silicone straps, the Grid Side Beacon can be used as a stand alone light, or as part of our Luminate 360 Light Set. Spec’d with eye catching amber colored LEDs, the weather proof, rechargeable Grid Side Beacon set comes with a dual headed charger and has a runtime of up to 6 hours for multiple days of commuting illumination.
||Meets ANSI FL-1 Standard. This standard was created by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) to provide consistent performance measurements for handheld lights. Although bicycle lights are not required to follow this or any standard, Blackburn believes in offering full transparency in how the output, run time, water resistance and other performance claims are measured.
||Up to 85 lumens
- High solid mode: 1.5 hours at 85 lumens
- Low solid mode: 3 hours at 50 lumens
- High flash mode: 3 hours at 85 lumens
- Low strobe mode: 6 hours at 50 lumens
||IP-65 submersible - Ingress protection rating or "IP Rating," is a techy way to describe the level of water- and dust-proofness of a product. This light meets the IP-65 Standard, which means it is totally protected against dust/grit and protected against low-pressure water jets from any direction.
||Fork or frame mounting
||Lithium polymer battery — Micro-USB rechargeable — Charges via any standard USB port
