Currently finishing up the lights from Build #3 (see Build Blog for build progress reports and tech notes).
I'm now kicking around the idea of another build late this summer as I may have found some help with the assembly process!

    The DS-500 Taillight
  • Unrivaled performance with true 500 lumen max output (recently confirmed to be 800+ at Lupine's test facility in Germany).
  • Extreme daytime visibility.
    The DS-1300 Headlight
  • True 1300 lumen performance in a remarkably small package.
  • Both lights hand made and 100% waterproof, including the battery.

  • 6061 aluminum, hard-anodized housing.
  • Precision CNC machining achieves an amazing 30 square inches of cooling surface area (Thanks to Robert in Santa Barbara, CA).
  • Custom CNC'd and vapor-polished water-clear polycarbonate lens cover makes this the ONLY lighting system on the market with truly usable side "marker" capability, front and back.  Great setup for commuters.
