Orfos Flare Bike Lights

The Orfos Flare Light is a lighting system developed by a Seattle bike commuter that, due to the city´s usual bad weather sometimes didn´t feel safe enough to take his bike out, for safety reasons. He never felt that he could really be seen on the rainy days or nights. So he set out to design a light that could assure him that everyone would see, all the way around the bike itself. Orfos Flare light was born a few years later. With a lighting of 300 lumens at the back, and up to 500 at the front, you do get a lot of light, the LED light is powerful and is surrounded by a reflective interior, dispersing it 360 degrees around you. It is shock and water proof and features a strong magnetic mounting system, with 4 different pattern modes and three brightness levels. The Orfos Flare Light also uses a LifePO4 battery, that can withstand up to 3x more charging cycles than the Lithium ion ones. Orfos is built and assembled in the USA, and judging by the insanely happy amazon reviews, this is a great product that´s the perfect complement for your bike. watch the video
