Dynamo lights

Dynamo lights

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

You can't get something for nothing and dynamos of course cause some drag. However, with modern good quality dynamos this is minimal. With proper set-up you simply 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. Hub dynamos in these wheels offer lower drag when the lights are lit than a bottle dynamo.

A budget, but still very bright and effective, dynamo lighting setup can be made up by combining the AXA HR dynamo with Union UN-4268 headlight and Busch und Muller Toplight Flat Plus rear light at about 51 euros for the set.

An example of a more luxurious and brighter bottle dynamo setup would be the combination of the Nordlicht Dynamo, Busch und Muller Cyo headlight and B&M Toplight Line-Plus rear light for a total of about 120 euros.

A good hub dynamo setup would combine the 26" or 28" dynamo hub wheel with an AXA Luxx 70 headlight and B&M Toplight Line Plus rear light for a total of about €185.

The best current price / performance headlight is the Union / Marwi UN-4268. This offers a bright 35 lux output with a well shaped beam, a standlight (stays on when you stop) and works with both hub and bottle dynamos and it comes at a very attractive price.

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.

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).
