Being seen from all angles has never been easier, thanks to the Blackburn Grid Side Beacon Light Set.
A recent study by the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) showed 27% of bicycle accidents are side impacts and 30% of fatalities occurred at intersections (between 2010-2017).
The Grid Side Beacon was designed for use with head/tail lights to keep you more visible to drivers from a full 360 degrees.
It mounts to either side of your fork with reusable silicone straps and can be used as a stand-alone light, or as part of Blackburn's Luminate 360 Light Set. The weatherproof, rechargeable Grid Side Beacon set comes with eye-catching amber coloured LEDs and a dual headed charger, and it has a runtime of up to six hours for multiple days of commuting illumination.
