The ioLight is a durable, 200-lumen bike light that features Bluetooth connectivity so that it's able to pair with the Lumenus App. Specifically made for the brand's powerful bike lights, the Lumenus App works with the user's GPS services so that cyclists can map their routes ahead of time and ensure that their bike light communicates clear signals to others on the road.
This includes turning and break signals—with the latter also accessible to users who don't have the app, as the light is able to detect when the cyclist is slowing down to prepare for a stop. The app will even detect high-traffic areas, and cue the light to give off a strobing effect to make sure that cyclists are as visible as possible in more dangerous zones. If users wish to change their ioLight's colors, they can customize them with the Lumenus App, which also allows them to save their favorite combinations as presets for easy access. Cyclists can always use the app to map a route ahead of time, however if they choose to deter from it at any point, it's set up to automatically reroute their course so that the signals and strobing effects will function accurately. If they choose to, users can also turn off the features of their choice at any time, which can be especially useful if they decide to switch the ioLight's position from the back to the front of their bike, or use a set of lights together.
The Lumenus App is currently available for iOS users only, however the brand plans to bring it to Android in the near future, along with a series of updates. This includes software integrations with Strava, automated weather condition-specific color changes, and a crash detection that can alert friends, family, or EMS if it senses that a cyclist has taken a hard fall.
