MagVis / bike accessories

MagVis

Most of the bicycle lamps are disadvantageous in many ways. They have either customized support to fit on the bike, are too big, unattractive, easy to steal, hard to carry and kind of always in the way. On some bikes there is not enough space for such a big lamp, moreover it appears ugly for bike lovers. We have created an invisible alternative that appears only in need. The lamp sits in the hollow part of the handlebars, it basically is the handle itself. Magnets support the lamp so it stays in position. To pull out the lamp it has to overcome the magnetic forces until the other end of the lamp connects to the magnet.
