Shop with confidence. If it’s not working out, you can return it (consumables, electronics, undergarments and swimwear excluded).
Really. If it's not up to snuff after you use it (a couple times) you can still bring it back. It lasts longer than 30 days, but not forever. We'll be fair about it.


Small, easy to charge and bright: all great things in a bike light. The Nickel Rear Light is a lightweight and small taillight solution for those who don’t want or need a larger light. The silicone attachment loop lets you mount it almost anywhere.

  • 4 modes: high (1.5 hours at 8 lumens), medium (3.5 hours at 4 lumens), low (7 hours at 2 lumens) and quick flash (5 hours)
  • Easy USB charging means you no longer have to get by with "good enough" batteries
  • LED battery indicator lets you know when it is time to charge
  • Silicone strap attaches to wrist, backpack, seat post, chainstays, forks, keychain or your pet's collar
  • O-ring seal makes this light ready for heavy rain – it's waterproof, but not submersible
