Dynamo lights

Dynamo lights

Lights for dynamo lighting setups.

Dynamo lights are excellent for reliable bicycles. They're always there on your bike and always ready for action. No charging or battery replacement is needed.

Dynamos of course cause some drag. However, with modern dynamos this is minimal. In most cases with a properly set up dynamo you won't notice it. When a bottle dynamo is disengaged there is of course no drag at all, so if you will mostly ride in the day this is an excellent setup. Bottle dynamos can also more easily be retrofitted to most bikes.

We also sell wheels with built in hub dynamos. These require no lining up and no bracket has to be fitted, but you do have to replace your wheel to fit them. Rim tape must be fitted to the new wheel to prevent punctures. They offer lower drag when the lights are on than does a bottle dynamo.

For a budget, but still good quality, dynamo lighting setup we recommend combining the AXA HR dynamo with Basta Sprint headlight and Basta Ray rear light at just over 40 euros for the set.

On the other hand, the most luxurious, and brightest bottle dynamo setup we sell have is the combination of Nordlicht Dynamo, Philips Safe Ride headlight and Philips rear light rear light for a total of about 130 euros.

If choosing a headlight for a hub dynamo, you need a mechanical or automatic (dark sensing) switch. A good mid-price hub dynamo option would combine the 26" or 28" dynamo hub wheel with a Philips 40 lux headlight and B&M Toplight rear light for a total of about €120.

All combinations of dynamo, headlight and rear light are possible. To avoid running a wire to the back of your bike you can instead choose a battery powered rear light. While you can safely run any of our front lights from a dynamo without a rear being connected, you should never run just a rear light. Doing so will provide an inadequate load to the dynamo, which results in higher voltage and can damage the rear light.

All example prices include European sales tax of 19%, which is automatically deducted from all orders when you give an address outside of the European Union.

Unless there is a brazed on attachment for a dynamo on your frame, don't forget to buy a suitable bracket to fit your dynamo. We have brackets to fit on a V-brake boss, the front forks or rear seat-stay. You will also probably need wire, though this depends on the combination of parts that you've ordered (details are with the lights).
