The Blinder “Road Rear” is Knog’s newest see-by USB-rechargeable bike light. Delivering a 70 Lumen Super Bright Strobe, they’ll be sure to keep motorists off your tail. Weighing in at only 52g, they are also compact and waterproof – perfect for commuting in the dark. Catering to seatposts between 22 – 32mm in diameter, the flexible silicone strap will hold it firmly in place. It plugs directly into any computer USB port providing convenient recharging at home or at work.
The lens geometry has been engineered to provide a wide throw of light directly behind the rider while a light rim increases overall visibility of the rider to 270 degrees. The wide beam (80 degrees) is used with the 3 Super bright LEDs to provide a generous width of visibility. The narrow beam (22 degrees) is used with the CREE LED to give a focussed beam but also a longer throw of light.
Intuitive user-feedback and convenience. Hold the button down for one second and release to switch on or off. Quick presses allow you to cycle continuously through modes. The integrated LED located in the button provides battery low indication and is the charging status indicator when plugged into a device. A USB plug provides convenient recharging at work and home in any computer USB port or approved USB wall charger.
The Road Rear is made from high quality materials that enable seamless integration with the bike. UV-stabilised silicone, hard-wearing stainless steel, textured and anodised finishes all help to maintain a high-quality aesthetic for a long period of time. Intelligent battery storage is built into the design. Users are encouraged to implement this mode as a means to optimize battery longevity. Powered by industry-leading CREE LEDs and lithium polymer, the light pumps out 70 Lumens on its highest setting and maintains up to 80% of stated run times for at least 300 full charge cycles.
