We’ve selected what we think are some of the best light options on the market. The lights we sell are either economical and effective like the Planet Bike and Portland Design Works options OR they are out-of-this-world bright and have cool features like the rechargeable Light & Motion or dynamo hub-generated Supernova models.


Supernova Lighting Systems

Shimano Alfine Dynamo Front Wheel  This is a great option for those wanting to move beyond battery operated lights.

We have both black and silver (matching hubs/spokes/rims) 20″ and 26 ” wheels in stock.  $275



Supernova E3 Pro II High Powered Dynamo Light Besides looking pretty darn snazzy on the bike, the E3 blasts 370 Lumen of retina ripping LED light and works perfectly with the Alfine Dynamo.  What else makes this light worth the money? We keep pre-built Alfine Dynamo wheels in stock, so if whether you’re considering and upgrade to your new bike or a retrofit for your current bike, we can get you on the road with this superior system with a minimal wait. Features include:

E3 Triple

The shop favorite! With all of the quality in materials and manufacturing as the E3 Pro II but with 800 Lumen. This is one of the brightest dynamo lights available and certainly one of the nicest, with three LED bulbs and ingenious electronics. If you really want to see the road, this one is a winner! $300

E3 E-Bike

The best choice for electric assist systems with 6V compatibility, this light offers the same features as the E3 Pro II but runs off of a battery. $210

E3 Tail Lights   A high-powered LED tail light that works in conjunction with your Supernova head light and dynamo.  The light comes from three high-powered LED bulbs that are wired directly in to the headlight.  This allows the 5 minute capacitor of the headlight to power the tail light for extra safety.   Not being satisfied with the mounting options of the E3 tail light, Splendid Cycles has built our own mount (pictured) that works on most bikes.  $70  

E3 E-Bike Tail Light – $90

Light & Motion

Not only are these very bright and effective lights but they are also rechargable so the extra you spend on the initial purchase reduces waste. And the planet likes that.

Urban 180   An incredible value for a rechargeable, lightweight light. With 180 Lumen you’ll see and been seen. At 112 grams you’ll hardly notice the weight on your handlebars. With up to 6.5 hours of run time, you’ll have plenty of time to take the long way home. $100



Urban 550 So bright! 550 Lumen bright. This is the coolest, brightest, compact light we’ve seen – the rechargeable battery is integrated into the light.  It weighs only 112 grams and provides up to 6 hours of run time. Three modes, including blinking. Low battery warning light lets you know when you’re within 5-10% of capacity. Mounts on handlebars or helmet. Lithium-ion battery, recharge using USB cable. $160

The Vis 180° rechargeable LED taillight delivers an SUV sized output from a compact lightweight package.

With a tool-less mount, locking mount clip for frame or bag, and convenient USB charging, you will never go back to a blinkie again. $100.00
