3. Blink/Steady Bike Light
Did you know it’s technically illegal to ride a bike on a city street without working head and tail lights? When traveling on the road ways, bikes are considered vehicles just like cars. As such, they need to have much of the same safety equipment that allows cars to be visible on the road, especially at night. Finding a light that’s durable while also staying charged for more than two seconds can be a challenge. That’s why Benjamin Cohen created Blink/Steady. Machined from solid aluminum, the Blink/Steady bike light turns on automatically when you start pedaling and shuts off when you’re not riding. Because it’s secured to the bike’s seatpost, there’s no need to remove it when you lock up. Even with motion and light sensors, the light still runs twice as long as other leading bike lights, and only requires two AAA batteries. Pre-order for $95.
