Today we bring you a new post about news on cycling stuff, for exemple, bike lights!
As you can see in our past posts, we have tested some products from the sweeden brand Bookman, they produce original and well designed products, not only lights.
In this case, we have received and tested the new Curve Front Light 2 in Petrol Green and Neon Hot Pink, as you can see in the pics.
New Curve Front Light 2 specifications
Rechargeable high power bike light with a brightness of up 100 lumen and a run-time of up to 35 hours. Easy attach and detach from the handlebar with the elastic silicone band.
The battery indicator and ‘on’ button is situated on top which also doubles as the clasp. Press and hold for 0.7 second to turn the light on or off. One single click switches between the four modes available.
On the brightest steady light setting, the light produces 100 lumen for a two and a half hours. In the power saving and flashing modes the light can last up to lengthy 35 hours. It takes only two hours to charge from flat to full via a convenient USB charging cable, which is included.
The design of the glass, which spills over the sides, ensures a wide range of light, not only in front of the cyclist but reflects off to the sides. This results in cyclist peace of mind that the light provides them with clear visibility of the roads as well as being visible to other travelers at 180 degrees around them.
The completely weather resistant light (IP-44) will show you the way through rain, hail or snow. Fits handlebar diameters from 22 to 42 mm

Some 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 their main form of transport and they believe it is absolutely the best way to get around the city (and beat traffic). In amongst their 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. Their 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 their 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 stores 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 where you are, through their online store (link to the store). They 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’s website, just to name a few.
