Magnet bike light from Copenhagen Parts

There are very few good looking slimline bike lights. Copenhagen Parts wanted something that looked good, worked well and, most importantly, could be fitted and removed instantly. The answer was – magnets.

Magnets and steel tubes are an obvious match but we’ve spent a lot of time working on selecting the right components and perfecting the details so that they will fit to different tube diameters and stay there’. And the cleverness doesn’t end there. The lights turn on when placed on the bike and automatically switch off when removed, says Mads Kjøller Damkjær, co-founder of the company.

We have been riding with the prototypes for 6 months. They are so easy to fit anywhere on the frame and they stay put – regardless of the road surface. And they just pull off to keep them out of the grasp of thieves’ says Anthony Forsyth, bike-geek and one of the designers for Copenhagen Parts.

The only drawback is that they only work on steel frames. However the vast majority of people still riding steel-framed bikes. It’s a nice feature that it automatically turns on when you put it on the frame, and turns of when you remove it.

    That is a stroke of genius! I’m a keen cyclist, always caught without lights, and when I do have them in my saddlebag it’s always a real faff to fit them.

    Human nature is the most poor: we all dream to have a wonderful rose garden, and not to appreciate our window open today in the rose.
