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 OR they are out-of-this-world bright Supernova models. We believe in Supernova lights – there’s few that are equal in quality, craftsmanship, light quality, and price. All of our Supernova lights come with a 5-Year Warranty from the manufacturer, but it is unlikely you’ll need it. We’ve had so few problems with these lights and, in addition to the quality of the light, that’s one reason it is THE light we sell.
- Center Lock and V-BRAKE compatible
- 6V-3.0W hub dynamo
- Color options: Black, Silver
- Available with 20″, 26 “, or 700c rims
Supernova E3 Pure 3 - $200
The quality lighting you expect from Supernova without premium pricing. This 205 lumen light is for dynamo hubs only, e-assist bikes require a different light (see e-light section below). Matte black only.
In spite of its extremely small size, the E3 PURE 3 is one of the brightest bicycle lights available. The lamp´s innovative inner housing design directs the heat of the LED straight to the cooling fins for maximum brightness. Permanent daylight running light and stand light provide added security day and night. The light is sealed completely watertight.
Supernova E3 Pro II (not pictured) Besides looking pretty darn snazzy on the bike, the E3 blasts 205 Lumen of retina ripping LED light and works perfectly with the Alfine Dynamo. $210 (while supplies last)
Barb’s pick for dynamo hubs! With top-notch quality in materials and manufacturing this 640 Lumen light is one of the brightest dynamo lights available and certainly one of the nicest. With three LED bulbs and ingenious electronics you REALLY see the road! This one is a winner! $300

Supernova Tail Lights
E3 Tail Lights (dynamo or E-light) A high-powered LED tail light that works in conjunction with your Supernova head light . 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 that works on most bikes. $75
