This violates the requirement for a bicycle light to have a minimum height of 30cm from the ground. A powerful forward facing light would still be safer and more practical, since it illuminates obstacles on the road much further than this.


I'm not familiar with this requirement for bike lights to be at least 30cm from the ground. Is it state/country-specific?


I don't think this is intended to be one's only light — it would be woefully inadequate for illuminating the road in front of one's bike — but instead is meant to be supplemental to the rest of the lighting on the bike.


@ None
You've COMPLETELY MISSED the point of this system.

I, like the others, certainly wouldn't consider this light set to be a primary lighting system but more of a "here I am" visibility aid to be paired with a "legal" set of lights.

Also, technically you're wrong anyway as the visible light starts ABOVE 30cm and extends downwards.
