paul cocksedge studio has just launched its second design via crowd-funding platform kickstarter, the double O bike light. ‘as with so many people, cycling is an essential part of my life, and cycling safety is crucial. I’ve used many bike lights but i feel some things could really be improved. I wanted to design a bike light and the inspiration for double O comes directly from the shape of the bicycle. I wanted something that almost looked like the bike had designed it itself.’ – paul cocksedge

 

update 12/01/2014 : ‘double O’, the innovative bike light designed by paul cocksedge and funded via a successful kickstarter campaign, has completed its initial production run.

double O bike lights have magnets inside, so putting them on and taking them off is hassle free. fix the polycarbonate mounts onto the bike frame with the nut and bolt provided. push on the tail light, snap in the front O, and the magnets inside will securely hold them in place.

the lights are extremely robust and hard wearing. along with a polycarbonate shell and silicone backing, they also have neodymium-grade magnets inside to make them really strong. the studio has done extensive tests to ensure that the magnets are robust enough for the lights to stay attached.

store them safely: double O’s snap together magnetically to protect the LED face. then you can thread them on to your lock and leave them secured with your bike.

safe – bright illuminating lights that do not dazzle others: other bike lights use fewer ultra bright LEDs packed too closely together, which can be blinding for other cyclists and road users. we use less bright LEDs but more of them so the light emitted is as bright but not as harsh, enabling you to see and be seen.

  • Do we really need more bike lights on Kickstarter? Is this like the modern day mouse trap? where everyone and their grandmother knew a better way to trap a mouse….
