The world's first laserlight
We have reimagined the bicycle light. Besides being a kickass front light, the Laserlight has a unique safety feature. Its green laser projects the image of a bike 5-6 metres onto the road ahead. This alerts vehicles of the unseen cyclists and prevents drivers from turning across their path.
The classic blind spot scenario is the greatest danger to cyclists. 79% of cycle accidents occur when the bicycle is travelling straight ahead and a vehicle manoeuvres into them. The Laserlight gives you a bigger footprint on the road. It alerts drivers ahead of your presence and prevents them from turning across your path.
All you would want from a bicycle light
We wanted our Laserlight to be the ultimate bicycle light by design and performance. Rechargeable, USB compatible and 100% waterproof.
We are particularly fond of the control panel's functional and elegant design. The magnetic charging pins allow for a completely sealed casing and quick connectivity. Coloured back-lights around the pins display the battery level. And it’s easy to use the large flush buttons even wearing the thickest winter gloves!
Intelligence Built In
An internal magnetic switch keeps the laser safely turned off when out of its bracket, preventing accidental activation. Don't worry though, you could still use your light as a LED torch!
The Li-ion battery lasts forever (well, 13 hours in our recommended mode, to be precise), but once it starts getting low, the Laserlight will alert you. Then, once nearly discharged, it will switch to energy saving mode - giving four hours of additional run time to get you home safely.
The Laserlight even knows when it's in extreme conditions - too hot and a red indicator will flash; too cold and a blue indicator will flash.
Our flagship feature, the laser increases the presence of a cyclist by literally projecting them onto the road ahead. This alerts other road users of the approaching bike and allows them more time to react.
By special request from our Kickstarter backers, the high performance lithium-ion battery is rechargeable via any USB power source. Cable included.
Exactly what you’d expect from a fully-sealed unit. The Laserlight is waterproof up to 1m, so you could even take it for an underwater adventure ride.
Made from marine-grade steel, the bracket is a durable piece of bike jewellery to leave on your handlebars. Fits handlebar diameters from 24mm up to 32mm. One-hand release.
No backpack illumination here. The bracket’s safety magnetic mechanism is there to ensure that the laser cannot be used except when it’s on the bike.
Planes are made of strong stuff, so our Laserlight is too. Anodised and sandblasted with diamond cut edges for a beautiful finish.
Laserlight Performance Breakdown
Laserlight Feature Overview
Why does the laserlight use a green light projection?
Because the human eye is most receptive to light of that wavelength. Luckily, it also takes relatively little energy to generate green light, resulting in the Laserlight’s impressive run times - 13 hours with light and laser both flashing, WHOOP!
And if that wasn’t enough, blue light is reserved for use by the emergency services, while red light can only be projected backwards to avoid confusion on the roads.
Is it visible in daylight?
The bicycle projection is visible in daylight, but designed for use in low light when you'd normally use your bicycle lights. In the UK, this makes up over 50% of commuting hours.
Does it not blind other road users?
The laser has been tested and doesn't damage the retina. As with all lasers, precautions must be taken. The Laserlight is eye-safe if used correctly - projected down onto the road around 5 metres ahead of the cyclist. In addition, our smart bracket will ensure that the laser won’t switch on when its not mounted in the bracket.
Is the Blaze Laserlight a bicycle light?
Yes, the Laserlight is, first and foremost, a damn good white LED light, punching out 300lm in the brightest mode. The laser image is projected by a separate diode inside the light and can be switched on and off independently.
What's included in the box?
The Wait is Over! The first batch of Laserlights are now available to order, shipping January 2014!
We are sorry that we couldn’t get the lights to you in time to put under the tree. But if your heart is set on giving a Laserlight to a loved one, we’ll send them a handwritten card to tell them exactly what’s coming. For UK cards, place order by 19th Dec, for the rest of the world - by 13th Dec. Electronic cards can be sent for the last minute gift buyers!
