New Products in Stock: Supernova Dynamo hubs/lights

There's something to be said about simply hopping on the bike without every worrying about battery powered lights, re-chargeable or not.  We're now carrying even more Supernova products.  They are exceptional lights that offer an attractive design and powerful lumens to light up your bike path or street. 

If you've ever considered using dynamo powered lights, then consider a supernova.  Once you go dynamo, you'll never look back.  True words from experience.
