LightSKIN LED - seat post

If you like your bike with a sleek, harmonious look there's no need to compromise anymore: LightSKIN is a seat post and tail light in one - and the new model is road legal in Germany according to StVZO laws. We reworked this model together with LightSKIN: the battery is now embedded into the seat post and rechargeable via Micro-USB. Removing the seat post is not necessary as the USB-port is located at the seat clamp. A charging cable is included.

The LightSKIN seat post has five bright, glare-free LED lights, which makes you visible from all sides. The two bottommost LEDs can be turned off and lowered into the seat tube, depending on your height and frame size, to save battery. A run time of 10 (5 LEDs) to 15 hours (3 LEDs) ensures many illuminated rides by night.

Durable, weatherproof, anti-theft - a compact and safe tail light with a stylish, minimal design.

  • five glare-free, high-performance LEDs
  • rechargeable via Micro-USB
  • Up to 15 hours run time
  • weatherproof
  • two bottommost LEDs can be switched off
  • weight: approx. 380 g
Price 79,00 € incl. VAT, plus shipping and handling
