Today we return with our product reviews, we have a lot of stuff of products to review these days...
Today we want to show you the SS16 Bookman Light, a limited edition of their classic bike lights for the spring/summer 2016. In our case we have received the light sunset pink and yellow elastic band model... as you will see in this review, combines perfect with our State Bicycle Black Label!
The colors are all about the concept of summer: sunny days by the sea, cruising bike rides, melting ice creams, laughter and sweet summer tunes.
Bookman Light is a slim, high quality bicycle light set – easy to mount and detach thanks to the elastic pull. It is surprisingly bright despite its size and has an oversized button that makes them easy to turn on and off, even with gloves. The front light attaches to the handlebar and the rear light goes on the saddle pole. Bookman Light fits all different sizes of handlebars and saddle poles.

Four years ago a group of 5 friends all with different skill sets, came together over a mutual passion for cycling. Living in Stockholm, a very bicycle-orientated city, cycling is our main form of transport and we believe it is absolutely the best way to get around the city (and beat traffic). In amongst our comings and goings they saw a need for urban bike accessories with a twist so they decided to combine function with style and design and create Bookman. Our inspiration comes from the humming bike life they see in urban Europe where it is evident that getting on a bike is not reason enough to disregard dressing well. Their goal is to inspire more of you style-conscious people to see that traveling in the saddle can be a way of life that combines style, convenience, design and fun.
They at Bookman are continuously striving to design more functional solutions for your everyday cycling needs, focusing on the little details that have previously been overlooked and incorporating cycling and style in all our products. They aim to provide you with an ever-expanding range of different products to add a personal touch on your ride while keeping you safe.
They are featured in over 30 countries all around the world from concept boutiques such as Colette in Paris, to museum shops like MoMA in NYC, to more bicycle oriented stores such as ParkSIDER in Tokyo. You can also browse and buy their products right now from exactly here, through their online store. We have also appeared in some cool media forums around the globe; American men’s magazine Details, Velo’s 2nd gear book, British GQ, The Sunday Times Style, Nordic architecture and design magazine FORM, The Cool Hunter and on WIRED, just to name a few.
