New Design

It’s time to revolutionize biking and you can have the opportunity to come along for the ride. ShineOn is here to introduce the (patent pending) back-facing light design, which illuminates the biker, ensuring motorists and other cyclists can see you from afar. As a matter of fact, other commuters can assess how far you are over 10 times quicker than traditional bike lights because your profile is increased by 250 times due to the second light.
