Lucnt is a smart cycling light that functions like a car's brake lights. It uses multiple sensors coupled with smart algorithms to detect when you slow down or accelerate. This helps increase your visibility on the road and lets the drivers behind you know you're slowing down. Lucnt is CNC machined from a single piece of aluminum, designed and made in Richmond, California.

Lucnt is an intuitive bike light designed to make cycling safer. It automatically illuminates and begins calibration when you attach it to its magnetic mount. Lucnt has a unique, semi-random blink signature designed to capture the drivers attention without distracting them. Using multiple accelerometers, Lucnt transitions from blinking to solid, signaling to the people behind, that the rider is slowing down or braking. To turn Lucnt off, all you have to do is unmount it, or, you can leave it on and Lucnt will automatically go to sleep if it detects no movement.
Lucnt has two machined seat mounts as well. Size A fits post sizes 24-27mm, and size B fits post sizes of 29-31mm. Adjustments to find any size in between are made by using a non-marring set screw.
We designed Lucnt to be extremely easy to use, energy efficient, and bright. The light measures at 120lm and gets 20hrs of continuous run time. It also fully charges via usb in 1hr. All of this is packed inside a solid, CNC machined aluminum housing that is sealed and ready for any condition you ride in.
