Sparse: Fixed Light System (Front/Rear Pair, Plus Charger/Cable)

Description

Every so often we discover a new item which solves far more than it’s initial purpose. Sparse are just one of those magnificent design teams: rather than just add a light to their bikes, they looked at how cyclists really use them throughout the day. Illumination is one aspect, visibility another. Theft however is the unspoken weakness and one, long overdue for solving!

Realising that removing/replacing conventional options forms a large part of parking-up, they took a seemingly simple step in making them a semi-permanent fixture. Much like the VANMOOF series of lights, these can be removed if you have a full toolkit. However they can’t be ripped-off by a passerby; thereby solving the greatest annoyance of most bike lights. Finally, you can leave them on the bike.

Next they looked at how most of us store our beloved steed: indoors! So, since most bikes are parked inside the house and beside a power socket, why have any removable parts whatsoever? This is the solution taken by leading laptop, phone and tablet manufacturers too: by leaving out a battery ejection system, the unit can be smaller, lighter, cheaper, less prone to breaking and enjoy a sleek casing. Just use the supplied 6′ micro-USB cable and wall adapter to charge-up.
