Show Description

A little bit bigger, but a whole lot brighter. The Sphere 500 builds on MEC’s compact USB-powered bike light line, keeping the small form factor and ease of use, but getting a big lumen upgrade. Blaze a path through the night – with up to 500 lumens at your disposal, you'll see and be seen. Versatile silicone attachment loop makes it easy to mount this little bike light nearly anywhere.

  • 6 modes: high (1.2 hours at 500 lumens), medium (2.5 hours at 250 lumens), low (5 hours at 120 lumens), quick flash (4.5 hours at 80 lumens), signal flash (2.2 hours) and warning flash (2.5 hours).
  • 1-button interface is easy to use with or without gloves.
  • Easy USB charging means you no longer have to get by with “good enough” batteries.
  • LED battery indicator lets you know when it's time to charge.
  • Light and efficient lithium-polymer batteries.
  • Side cutouts add side visibility for an extra level of protection.
  • Tool-free strap mount attaches to your handlebars (22-35mm), seat post, chainstays, forks or helmet vents.
  • O-ring seal makes this light ready for heavy rain – it's waterproof, but not submersible.
