Bookman Light, the product review

BOOKMAN Light product review by The Fixed Gear World
First things first, the package in which it comes. Packaging is a very original, it is a vacuum sealed bag with the logo of the brand "Bookman" and the instructions on the back (Although their operation is really easy ..). Simply open the bag to touch these bike lights. At first sight, the lights are smaller than it seems when you visit their website, is good news! The size is perfect to keep in your pocket when you park your bike on the street. As we shall later, the assembly and disassembly is easy and fast, so it is an ideal product to use on your bike when you move around the city.

BOOKMAN Light product review by The Fixed Gear World
Bookman bicycle lights are basically composed of two parts: the case, in which there is an LED light and the power button, and a rubber band used to hold the case to the bike.
In each package there are two lights: one is white and the other red. To clamp the lights to the bike just have to place the case next to the bike and on the rubber surround is subject to the case through a cleft adapted to it.


BOOKMAN Light product review by The Fixed Gear World
Its operation is simple, with a click on the button will have intermittent bursts, with two clicks will have a flashing light, and with three clicks have a steady light. If you click a fourth time the light turns off. 

You can choose the lights in different colours: pitch black, raging red, heavenly blue, lemon yellow, dark jade, clay, goblin green and ghost white...you can combine it with your fixie!
 

Conclusion

  • The lights have an amazing lighting power, far greater than we thought, great!
  • It is an extremely light and small, you can keep in your pocket easily.
  • Assembly and disassembly is simple and comfortable. Practically you can install it on any tube of your bike.
  • To change the batteries need a screwdriver, but do not worry because it has the batteries included!
  • Really nice and cool design
Verdict: Highly recommended if you're an urban cyclist you need good lights easy to assemble and disassemble when you move around the city and leave your bike parked anywhere.

Info about Bookman

They started working on what was to become BOOKMAN in the end of 2009. Three of them had about half a semester left of their degree in Industrial engineering and together with another friends that also didn’t want to get a proper 9-5 job and instead try the entrepreneurial route we went to work. Most of them are dedicated cyclists and they all share an interest in design which gave them the direction for the brand. There are so many gadgets and accessories for bikes in the market but there a so few that they would like to put on our bikes. They wanted to make accessories that would complement the bike instead of detract from it. They did some projects on the side to get the money for tooling and after a lot of samples getting sent back and forth they were happy to place the first order of lights in the spring of 2011.


Since the start of BOOKMAN in June of 2011 the brand has been critically acclaimed by both bicycle enthusiasts and design lovers all around the globe. Their products have been featured in numerous magazines and blogs like Monocle, Dezeen, Daily Candy and Cool Hunting to name a few. Today it is possible to find the BOOKMAN Light at premium retailers in over 30 countries. In top notch bicycle shops such as Cicli Berlinetta (Berlin) and ParkSIDER (Tokyo), in world class concept boutiques such as Colette (Paris) and Wood Wood (Copenhagen) and museum shops like MoMA (NYC).

They are working hard to bring you some new products and with some luck they will be able to release them soon. It will be new lights but also other somewhat unexpected accessories that they think are in need of a makeover.
