LightSKIN LED - seat post

Guaranteed to attract attention in city traffic, the distinctive LightSKIN LED seat post is a must-have for all bike enthusiasts. Enjoy the convenience of this neat and stylish alternative to conventional external tail lights. The design consists of five bright LEDs that are built into the seat post, so they can’t be stolen or damaged. What’s more, thanks to the patented interior structure the LightSKIN seat post is completely weatherproof.

The uppermost LED on the LightSKIN functions as a control button for operating different light modes. Two AA batteries are located inside the seat post and provide up to 400 hours of illumination. To change the batteries, simply remove the seat post and insert new batteries.

This international version is not road-legal in Germany. Please see our StVZO-version if you are ordering from inside Germany.
