Reelight induction bicycle light

Reelight produces bicycle lights that function with induction. As the energy is generated by the cyclist, no batteries are needed. An induction light gives a better experience than old dynamos at there is no friction. Furthermore the lights are attached to the bike which means that they don’t get stolen or forgotten and thereby the product has a much longer life time than other bike lights.
