Introducing the BMC AC01 Sparse Light Set. If you have a BMC bike or not, the Sparse light set is going to fit securely to your bike lighting the road ahead and making vehicles around you aware that you are on the road. The front light acts as a spacer for your stem with the capability to fit 1'' and 1 1/8'' steerer tubes, a spacer for the light is provided in the box (id you have a 1'' steerer). Being mounted on your steerer tube the light is always pointing where you are travelling, giving you good visibility for vehicles on the road and for yourself to see what's ahead. The integration of the light means that it is near on impossible to steal. The front light uses 3 bright CREE LED bulbs running at 3 watts, giving you plenty of light to see and to be seen. The light has three settings, Off, On (solid beam) and flashing. The total run time of the light on the solid beam is 4 hours and 8 hours on the flash setting. Whether you are riding on un-light roads or through town the Sparse light set has your back. The rear light slides onto your seat post and will fit most standard sizes (anything from 27.2mm - 31.9mm). Like the front light it isn't easy to take off, you will have to remove your seat post from your bike and slide off. The rear light has 4 CREE LED's, two facing backwards and one either side. This gives you a large point of visual pollution, making you apparent on the roads. Like the Front light the Rear has three modes, On (solid), Off and flashing.
Both lights are fuelled by a rechargeable Lithium Polymer battery, similar to one in your mobile phone. A full charge will run for 4 hours on the solid light setting, roughly enough light to last a weeks worth of commuting to and from work. Each light or set comes supplied with a 6-foot (1.8-meter) micro-USB cable and wall adapter. This definitely beats having to buy batteries every time your lights run out of charge. Overall this is a great set of lights to own, coming in either a brushed silver or black they fit in with most aesthetics. Adding safety and style to your bike in a minimalist fashion.
