Put in your pocket and rest with ease knowing your light will not be stolen tonight.


CityLite comes with two lights, one white and one red, to be placed at the front and back of the bike, respectively. Though impressively compact, these lights keep bicyclists safe with the 220° light angle. This feature allows cyclists to be visible from even the side. The dual setting feature also allows the rider to choose between a constant light or flashing light setting. And with CityLite, gone are the days of stolen bike lights. Take your light unit wherever you go with ease and comfort and prevent it from being snatched.


The idea for this innovative bike light was conceived in Copenhagen in 1993, but its current shape and size was proposed in 2005 and manufactured beginning in October 2011. The project has brought together a bevy of creative international minds, hailing from countries including Denmark, Belgium, China, Holland, and the UK. CityLite has since collaborated with Retrospec Bicycles to bring you a specially branded version of this pocket-sized safety accessory.
