Colorful Knog Lights

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Safety is a big thing for me.  Helmets, lights and brakes on those fixed gear bikes are all important things.  Any customer that comes through the shop getting into cycling or buying a new bike the two must accessories are a well fit helmet and a rear blinky light.  So that I don’t sounds like I’m pushing things at them I explain the basics, you have one head (duh) and a good light will give drivers a good warning that you are up the road.

Today I’ll be talking about Knog’s colorful line of blinky lights.

Knog was one of the first companies to take lights and make them personal with their colorful little Frog lights.  Small rubbery lights that come in multiple outter colors and red or white LED lights.  They strap around your handlebar, seat post or frame.  Taking the success of these lights they expanded their line with brighter, more LED’s and fun names.

Add flare to your bikes, and safety on the road.

    If I didn’t already have an array of lights, I’d be all over these..they’re cute AND functional. I like the way they fit over the tubes and handlebars, although space on my handlebars is at a premium; I have a lot of stuff on my bike. I wasn’t kidding when I said it’s my car…my back basket probably has more space than the trunks of some small cars…lol!

    I want something like this that is a wrist band so someone can actually see you hand signaling at night. My bike may be lit up but my wildly gesturing arms are not.

  3. Tee ,

    I actually have the one Knog frog wrapped around my headtube on the bike. Once I find a photo of it I’ll post

  4. Jody,
    Check out trek’s leg bands that are reflective and light up. They get small enough with “velcro engineering” to fit your wrist or as a second dog collar for night walks.

    Led lights are great because they are long lasting and consumes less electricity.:*`

  10. LED Lights are cool to touch and they do not have filaments that fail frequently “”
