to create the display, the device connects to its own balight app. through a user-friendly interface, the platform allows users to create their own patterns from the app’s built-in tools or import pictures from the phone. to make adjustments or switch patterns during the ride, simply launch the app or use the mini remote control. the battery pack can last up to 10 hours, depending on the image and brightness. USB connect, lightweight and removable, it is easy to recharge. waterproof and shockproof, the balight offers a complete package ready for any kind of biking. the team is looking for funding through their indiegogo and expect it to arrive when the goal is reached.
