City, Country, the Future
In the future, bicycles will become the most important means of transport in urban areas, promising independence and improving quality of life. However, visibility on the bike is essential – to safeguard both the rider and other road users. Reflective details on clothing and perfectly working bicycle lights are therefore standard equipment. For even better safety, UVEX presents the new UVEX city light.
The UVEX city light is a simple, sporty city bike helmet. But its true character is revealed when the power button is pressed: under the outer shell, 4 LED strips light up – 2 at the front, 2 at the back – with 32 LEDs in all. These render the wearer more visible at dusk or dawn, or in the dark. At the touch of a button, the LEDs switch between constant, flashing and pulsing modes.
Depending on the mode, the built-in battery lasts 6 to 12 hours. Recharge in less than 2 hours using the supplied USB cable. An LED indicates charge status:
• Green: 60% power remaining
• Green/Red: 30 to 60% power remaining
• Red: ≤30 % power remaining, low battery
This technology lies behind an extra LED light at the back of the helmet. Reflective straps and lettering complete the package. Note: road traffic regulations class these helmet LEDs as auxiliary, passive light and rare not acceptable replacements for bike lights.
