Light and Motion manufacturers their bike lights in the United States at their Marina California factory, producing some highly engineered, well made and affordable lights. For the coming season, they’re offering the powerful new Urban 850 Trail light and two Urban 800 BarFly Combo Kits, which includes the light, a Bar Fly SLi and GoPro mount.

Urban Bike Lights

Their Urban series of lights is fully waterproof and meets the IP67 rating, which will make ideal when riding in inclement weather, whether that’s in rain or snow storms. The lights use the best CREE LED and software, have a compact and ultralight design, utilize custom reflectors and beam patterns for optimized lighting, and have Amber side lighting for better visibility. They have recently developed a GoPro style mount for its headlamps, so it can be attached to helmets that have that mount type and with many handlebar mount systems, including those from K-Edge and BarFly.
