Cycling at night can be dangerous if certain measures are not taken into consideration. When cycling, it is important that driver are able to see you from all sides. In order to do so, most bike lighting systems come with dedicated lights for the front, sides and back of the bike. However, the Ding Bike Lights bring something new. They use a beam of light that shines directly forward coupled with a beam that highlights the road on both sides of the bike.
“DING provides you with a Safer Ride on your bike with its Patented Two Beam Technology. The DING Bike Light has Twin Forward Beam optics plus an Additional Downward Beam that lights up the terrain below you and your ride, all within the One Smart Light,” the company that created the Ding Bike Lights wrote on the device’s Kickstarter page. “Road cyclists and commuters will love the commanding road illuminating light, as well as the added safety it brings. Mountain Bike Riders will appreciate the DING difference too, with the downward beam lighting up more of the trail, making it much easier to miss those potholes and not drift of your track,” the company added, describing their product.
For the forward beam, the Ding Bike Lights use two LEDs that have e maximum output of 400 lumens. This will make sure the beam is bright and help cyclists see the road ahead clearly. The underside of the lighting system features another LED with an output of 150 lumens. This LED will project a 3 x 1.5-meter rectangular bar of light on the ground. To preserve the life of the battery, all LEDs can be switched to lower outputs.
The system features a 3.7-volt 2,500-mAh lithium battery. It can sustain the lights for about two and a half hours. The battery is rechargeable and comes with an USB charger. Colored LED indicators are used to alert the users whenever their battery life goes low.
