Tired of constantly charging up your battery lights after a commute? Are you a cycle tourist who wishes to utilize electronics while away? Don't get caught without lights ever again by adopting a dynamo system into your daily riding.
Dynamos have evolved from the noisy, heavy and high drag systems of old to the new generation of efficient, bright and reliable products now on offer. Hub dynamos are installed into the front wheel of any bicycle, and can run front and rear lights, charging systems or any combination of the three. It works by generating current from your forward movement and sending it to a range of lights suitable for all types of riding, from local trips, daily commutes or extended touring.
There are even lights with outputs of up to 800 lumens meaning you could even ride off road at night. The amount of resistance occurring from the charge being produced varies on the brand and style of dynamo. Schmidt hubs are the lowest drag hubs available worldwide. The are made in Germany to exact standards, and are available in any spoke drilling and color, and are produced for disc and non-disc bicycles.
The Exposure hub is a great alternative for those wishing to try dynamo lighting on a budget. The output of all dynamo systems is 6V 3W, and you can pick and choose your hub and lights from any manufacturer. We still make the B&M Dymotec bottle dynamo available for those who wish to have a tyre driven system. This offers a very low cost entry into dynamo lighting for people making short trips at night.
Charging systems such as the B&M E-Werk, the Supernova Plug, and the new B&M Luxos U light allows you to charge phones, cameras, laptops and other devices from your dynamo unit. We offer full a full wheelbuilding and installation service in store, as well as being able to ship fully built wheels to out-of-town customers to install in their bikes at home. At home installation of lights is easy, or you can seek help from your local bike shop.
