Sparse offers bright, theft-resistant lights for your bicycle that will not only make others aware of your presence on the road, but will also illuminate your path as you turn.  The Spacer Light replaces a spacer beneath your stem. The light fits both 1″ and 1 1/8″ steer tubes; this mounting keeps the light pointing in your direction of travel as you turn the bike.  It has a 3 watt white CREE LED that gives you four hours in “on” mode and 8 hours in “blink” mode between charges.  The Tail Light slips over and clamps onto your seat post (fits most common post sizes, from 27.2mm – 31.9mm).  It has board-mounted red LEDs – 2 rear-facing, 2 side-facing – with up to 2 watts of power.  The Tail Light also operates in “on” and “blink” modes.

The chassis is die-cast zinc that stands up to the weather (IP4 rating), and both have rechargeable lithium-polymer batteries.  Lights come with a 6′ microUSB charging cable and a power adapter suitable for use in the region the purchase originates from.  You can buy a Spacer Light and a Tail Light for $139.99, a Spacer Light alone for $84.99, or a Tail Light for $64.99 at the Sparse website.
