PIONEERING BIKE LIGHT MAKES CYCLING SMARTER AND SAFER

BINOREAL launches speed-controlled rechargeable smart bike light

Lighting expert BINOREAL today launches the Radius F1 front smart bike light, which adapts brightness and lighting mode (beaming to pulsing) automatically to help cyclists commute more safely.

The number of people cycling to work in the U.S. has increased by 60% in the past decade*, which means there is a real need for safe, reliable, technologically advanced cycling accessories. The Radius F1 smart bike light ensures cyclists have the visibility and indicators they require when traveling in poor light conditions.

Smart responsive lighting**

The Radius F1 smart bike light uses hundreds of microlenses, which combine with a reflector to effectively illuminate both distant and close-up terrain. Bike lights which adapt brightness and lighting mode while cycling is not new, but the majority switch sharply between two or three preset light levels, which can distract the cyclist and others around. The Radius F1 transitions between a dim and bright light seamlessly, with no jarring shifts in light output. This minimizes the risk of an accident.

The Radius F1’s user-friendly design means unlike other smart bike lights there aren’t any technology integrations required—it is both speed sensor and light source.

When cyclists gain speed, the Radius F1’s RightBrightTM component automatically brightens its light so cyclists can see further ahead; when the bike slows, it dims—and it shifts at the same rate the speed changes. This conserves battery power and ensures visibility is always optimal for the cyclist’s speed.

In addition to auto-adjusting brightness, SecurePulseTM technology automatically switches to flash mode when braking to a stop and pulse mode when turning a corner. This gives other cyclists and motorists indication of the cyclist’s movements for increased safety.

After three minutes of non-movement, the light’s PerfectPowerTM functionality means it automatically switches the light to standby mode. Once the bike moves, the light becomes active and returns to its default speed-controlled lighting mode. After one hour of bike inactivity, the light’s power shuts off completely to save battery.

User- friendly controls

Easily attach the Radius F1 and Bluetooth remote to the handlebars and manually adjust brightness and mode in seconds.

The high power Lithium-ion battery can keep going for up to two hours continuously in high mode, and the easy-to-read display on top of the casing displays how much battery charge is left. Simply snap on the light’s magnetic charger and recharge in three to four hours.

Smart durable design

The TurnLockTM mounting, means the light can be attached and reattached within seconds, and Bluetooth connectivity ensures control of the device without hands having to leave the handlebar.

Engineered for both aesthetic excellence and technological performance, the Radius F1 smart bike light is minimalist and high-tech. It’s sleek black and silver casing will suit any bike frame.

Made with the highest grade materials and by leading manufacturing processes such as CNC aluminum machining, the Radius F1 provides excellent lighting accuracy and heat transfer.

Crafted with pinpoint precision, it is IPX7-rated, which means it is safe from water damage even when submerged in 3.3 feet of water for 30 minutes. The light helps to retain safe cycling in adverse weather conditions.

BINOREAL’s Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign kicks off on the 6 December with a target of $15,000 to put the pioneering device into mass production.
