Bright and safe – headlights for e-bike and dynamo
The crowning glory of our lighting series are the DLUX headlights and rear lights for bikes and e-bikes. With up to 120 lux (80 lux for dynamo), we bring a new generation of headlights that were completely developed and designed in Germany. However, the innovations do not only take place in the front light, but the rear light also offers an integrated brake light for e-bikes and thus ensures more safety in road traffic.
In addition, our Aurora and Luna headlights bring plenty of light to the road and also impress with their chic design and technically innovative features for bikes with hub dynamo and e-bikes.
For lovers of classic bikes and retro enthusiasts, our “Retro Classic” model is an approved dynamo front light with a classic look – thanks to an elegant stainless steel-look housing. “Retro Classic” comes with an integrated reflector and is available in different versions. The “Retro Classic N++” model, for example, has an on/off switch, parking light function, automatic switch-on with light/dark sensor. The simplest version comes with an on/off switch for the hub dynamo.
Battery lighting for your bike – always flexible, always there for you
At CONTEC we offer you approved battery lighting – optionally with rechargeable USB battery – for maximum visibility and maximum flexibility in use. Our battery lights can be easily mounted on any bike in just a few seconds. Our “Speed-LED” and “Speed-LED USB” offer you a bright 20 lux from a brand-name CREE LED in a compact size. They are attached to the bike via a stable silicone strap that is suitable for tube diameters from 20 to 40 millimetres.
With the smart Better.EE, your battery light can now be converted into a rechargeable light. The small USB rechargeable batteries are the size of standard AA and AAA batteries and therefore fit into the battery compartments. This way, the Better.EE can be easily recharged and used again instead of always having to use disposable batteries.
For even more light power, there is our new 24sevenStop LED battery light with up to 70 lux. The brightness can be selected manually between 70, 30 and 15 lux or automatically via the sensor setting. The brightness sensor automatically selects the optimal illumination level, adapted to the ambient brightness, for a long battery life. The rear light of the 24sevenStop brings a brake light to each wheel.
Bicycle Light FAQ
Question: What does “German test mark” mean?
Answer: Lighting on vehicles such as cars or bicycles is subject to legal regulations. In Germany, the StVZO regulates the nature of “lighting equipment on bicycles”. This specifies which requirements a front or rear light must meet. The Federal Motor Transport Authority checks whether a manufacturer meets these requirements. If a bicycle light meets the requirements, this model receives a so-called “K number” or test mark. The test mark confirms that the lighting complies with the StVZO.
Question: Can I also use lights on my bike that do not have a test mark?
Answer: As soon as I move in road traffic in Germany, I must ensure that my lighting is StVZO-compliant. The rules in the Road Traffic Regulations are designed to protect all road users. Lighting that does not conform to the StVZO can dazzle other road users and thus endanger them. The only exceptions are personal safety lights that are worn on the body or on clothing and serve as supplementary lighting.
Question: What is lux?
Answer: The unit lux measures the illuminance on a surface and is made up of the luminous flux (lumen), and a certain area. An illuminance of 10 lux is equivalent to 10 lumens per square metre. For bicycle lighting, the lux number is measured only in the centre of the light cone.
Question: What does lumen mean?
Answer: The unit lumen indicates the strength of the luminous flux and measures the luminous intensity emitted by a light source at a certain solid angle. Thus lumen says something about the radiant power of a light source.
