The Orfos Flare lights are a significant upgrade over regular bike lights in that they offer more visibility from all directions, making cyclists safer in every traffic situation. They also feature a unique mounting system that makes them easy to use.

The Flare headlights and tail lights both make use of high-intensity LEDs coated in a special reflective material inside clear cylindrical polycarbonate housing. The housing contains optically clear silicone.

The use of silicone means that the lights are completely waterproof. They even work when submerged to a depth of 15 meters for an hour, although you hope as a cyclist that you won't ever have to test that particular feature.

The Orfos Flare Lights are currently the subject of a Kickstarter campaign. A pledge of $119 will let you secure either a head-light or tail-light, with a $229 pledge getting you both -- if and when the campaign meets its fundraising target.
