Relax and enjoy the ride! The light turns on with bike movement and switches off one minute after the bike has stopped. No hassle with switches.

Stopping unexpectedly? Built in accelerometer analyses the
motion of the bicycle and shines
a bright stop light while braking. Just like tail-lights on cars do.

Being adaptive is a good thing. Built in light sensor adjusts the light’s brightness according to the surroundings. It makes you
always visible and saves battery.

Technology

Our team has put a lot of effort in finding the best components for Velodroom bicycle lights. Throughout the work process, when many conventional practices do not ensure the best outcome, we are pushed to seek the novel and unmatched. From philosophy to technology, this enables us to deliver probably the best bicycle light in the world.

It is hard to find a bicycle light meeting British, German and Danish high standards. We are exited and honored to team up with Enn Erme. He has created variety of optical systems from instrumentation on Salyut orbital space station to NarTest drug detector and is now designing the optics for Velodroom bike lights.

From the space technology to the everyday bike trip. Velodroom’s rear light optics are engineered for wide angle visibility. We have found balance of maximum illumination with minimum blinding of others. Isn’t it just fabulous?

Buttons: off means off

VD prototype version 5.5, buttons

To have buttons or not? That is one of the problems we are working on. On one hand Velodroom light is cleaner and less expensive without buttons; on the other, nothing compares to the feeling of having a control. The button here is not On/Off, but Auto/Off. If you switch it off, it is off. Otherwise it will use its sensors to decide if it should be lit or not. Simple.

So yes, we will have a button.

Whisper in the wind

Two Dolls
The wind is whispering about something
as black as a night, yet red as a light;
crystal clear, still made from metal;
and with few tricks up in its sleeve.

Your companion in the twilight zone.
Your Velodroom
Stay tuned!

Little bit of Amsterdam in every London

From Wikipedia, with word Amsterdam replaced by word London:

London is one of the most bicycle-friendly large cities in the world. In London over 60% of trips are made by bike in the inner city and 38% of trips are made by bike overall in the greater city area. The city is one of the most important centres of bicycle culture worldwide with world-class facilities for cyclists such as bike paths and bike racks, and several guarded bike storage garages.

Wish this was true? Well, according to the Guardian, the trend is obvious. Quarter of the morning rush-hour traffic is by cyclists. Relax and enjoy the ride!
