Magnic Microlight Features

magnic Night Bike

Magnic Microlight Technology with special effects – In addition to our contactless dynamo lights we offer the Magnic Night Bike: A stylish bike with Magnic Microlights and phosphorescent wheels for the Best Side Visibility you can get. It is the world's first dynamo powered bicycle with "Glow in the Dark" wheels. You can preorder it here on Kickstarter.

  • Universal concept

    Our rim dynamo lights work for every bike. For the classic Magnic Lights we offer adapters for all bicycle types and for Magnic Microlights we offer the clamp version "Wega" in case your bike has neither caliper nor Vrbake/Cantilever brakes.

  • Sustainability

    No batteries are used and you can exchange the classic Magnic Lights with a simple clilck adapter between different bicycles quickly. For the Magnic Microlights worn brake pads can be exchanged , so the concept of this product is a bike-lifetime product- and even more...

  • Warranty

    For all our products we have 2 year REAL WARRANTY. Due to the small failure rate we could even fulfill 3 year warranty for backers of our Crowdfunding campaigns.

  • Safety

    Without lighting, cyclists risk their lives in the dark - but those on the road with battery lights will soon be left in the dark when the journey takes too long or the batteries are no longer full. Magnic (Micro)-lights can't be turned off at daylight: With lights on your visibilty increases significantly which means a great deal of safety.

  • Anti-Theft concept

    For all models we have our custom security screws to prevent theft..

  • German Traffic Regulations

    It took us years to get heard by German Government: In 2018 we could contribute to the design of a new traffic rule which takes into consideration the Magnic Light technolgy. In the last weeks of 2018 this new law will be presented to the German ministry of transport and hopefully pass the Bundestag

Technology

The contactless dynamo

The core part is the world’s smallest contact and frictionless bicycle dynamo, that is integrated together with the electronic and the lighting system in the brake shoe of a calliper brake or Vbrake. The worldwide patented technic developed by the German company Magnic Innovations is based on a eddy current induction: a magnetic wheel in a generator separated from the bicycle rim by a narrow air gap induces temporary magnetic fields even in non-magnetic aluminium bicycle rims when the bicycle rim is moving. This leads to the magnetic wheel rotating contactlessly as if by magic.

Eddy Current Induction

The key is so-called eddy current technology : Energy is drawn from the rotating bicycle wheels without any physical contact, and thus without friction. Instead, eddy currents created by strong magnets generate electricity to power the lights: When the wheel spins, magnets inside the generator induce eddy currents with corresponding magnetic fields in the wheel, which in turn interact with the magnets in the generator. The resulting electricity will power your lights indefinitely without any environmentally harmful batteries or cumbersome cables.

Brake Shoe Integration

Neither batteries nor external cables, further fittings or spoke-magnets are necessary. Solely the brake shoes are to be exchanged for microlight - brake shoes, so that the maintenance only involves the exchange of worn brake pads after thousands of kilometres. Over time, brake pads become thinner - for this we have integrated a special mechanism that keeps the distance from the generator to the rim constant and prevents grinding. The included brake pads are compatible with other standard brake pads of other manufacturers as available in every cycle shop.
