The trend in light units is for greater light output from smaller packages, with many quite powerful lights coming in single packages with an integrated battery. Lumicycle eschews this approach, producing a range of light units with separate battery packs which either use Velcro to strap to the frame or live in a bottle cage and use cables to connect to the light’s head unit.
