Description

Bright color and visibility on your bicycle wheels. It's easy! Side visibility is critical when you're riding at night. The A15 Monkey Light lights up your bike wheels so you can stay visible. The A15 uses 4 ultrabright color changing LEDs to light your bicycle wheel and tires. Here's what's great about the A15 Monkey Light: The A15 comes with 23 built-in color options, selectable with the press of a button. Ultra-bright LEDs light both sides of your bicycle wheel, spokes, tires and the road around you to help keep you visible from all angles! Colors change with your speed, or you can set it to show a single color. You can even set your A15 so it shows rainbows on your bicycle wheel! Want to keep it simple? You can set your light to just white or just red with the press of a button. The A15 is rigorously tested to withstand the elements and your daily ride. It's waterproof and iceproof* so that it can stand up to rain, snow, sleet, ice, road salt, puddles and river crossings. And it's durable so it can handle bumps, potholes, curbs, and jumps. *We know you probably won't be riding in the ice. But we take the quality of our wheel lights very seriously! We at MonkeyLectric run our own factory in California where we assemble the A15 in the USA of imported parts and program and test every single light. If anything happens to your A15 Monkey Light, we stand by our lights. Let us know and our friendly staff will help you get rolling again. And if you're in the San Francisco Bay Area, we can give you a factory tour! The best thing about the A15 is that it turns on automatically just when you need it. Triple sensors and a smart microprocessor turn on the light when it's dark and when your wheels spin. It saves power by turning the LEDs off when it's bright enough outside or if you stop riding. The A15 Monkey Light fits on most 16" bike wheels and nearly any bike wheel with spokes 20" and larger. This includes many kids bikes, folding bikes, mountain bikes, road bikes, beach cruisers, 29ers, fat bikes, and e-bikes. The LED portion of the light attaches near the rim, and the battery mounts near your hub for wheel balance. (Note: 2 orders of A15 lights shown in photo) The battery lasts up to 17 hours of riding and is easy to recharge: Just plug it in to a power source with the included USB cable. Our smart sensor technology can automatically change the color of your light as you ride, based on your speed! Challenge yourself to stay at the fastest color, or enjoy the light show as you accelerate or slow down. There are 4 separate speed-sensitive options: All of these options are built-in to your light! You can select one by pressing the color button. Or you can select one of the other 23 non-speed-sensitive patterns! The LED portion of the A15 light attaches to the spokes of your bicycle wheel near the rim and the tire. Use the supplied cable ties to secure it to your wheel. In our California factory, we mold your A15 Monkey Light in a clear rubbery plastic that absorbs vibrations and protects the electronics and sensors from water, rain, dust and grime. The rechargeable battery pack attaches to your hub to reduce the rotational weight of the light. Our patented design mounts to a wide variety of hubs, even large hubs as found on motorized e-bike wheels, dynamo generators, and internally-geared hubs. The battery pack is also fully sealed and waterproof! The cable supplies power from the battery to the light. Wrap the cable tight around your spoke so there isn't any slack. Plug in the light. Now it's time to ride and enjoy the light show! We want to make your ride more visible, more colorful, and more fun! Enjoy your automatic bicycle lights. They're the easiest to use Monkey Lights ever! You will love seeing the colorful glow they create on the ground around your bike wheels and the smiles you receive from those you ride by.

abunda_amazon_reviews I commute 5 days a week about 12 miles per day mostly by bike path. I have been doing this for 9 years. I live in the Seattle area, so half the year my evening commute is in the dark, often with rain. I mounted the light on my front wheel about a month ago (February). I use the rainbow mode where the light cycles through various color modes. Pros: Appears to be water proof. Rugged so far, no problems with durability. It is quite bright at night, even in the rain. The rainbow mode is highly unusual compared to other lights drivers have to sort through at night. I feel (but have not measured) that drivers give me significantly more leeway with these lights. They seem to notice me earlier... There are fewer panicked close calls with drivers at intersections. They are less distracting to me than I originally feared. They did not imbalance my wheel noticeably. I have fairly heavy wheels and tires... Not sure if this would be the same on a light racing wheel. Cons: The wire has to be run along a spoke... Hopefully it will never come loose and wrap up in my front spokes during a ride. The light doesn't make a continuous ring like the picture shows. It's more like what you would expect... You see a little light spinning around the wheel with a bit of a light trail. Not sure about battery life... Haven't replaced them yet. Summary: Best lights for side visibility, an often overlooked safety angle. I would definitely recommend these lights.;;Reviewed in the United States on March 4, 2015;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Great active lateral low light visibility.;;T. Hawthorn;;;I've been riding a bike to work every day without fail for at least the past 5 years, and on and off before that. I am convinced that some kind of spoke light is a necessity for any after-dark riding. I've previously tried the Spokelit-style lights , a knockoff LED spoke light , and LED valve caps . The MonkeyLectric 40 is the best spoke light I've been able to find so far, although there are a few improvements that could be made. What I like: 1) Build quality (mostly, see below). The parts all seem rugged, with no weak points that could break. 2) Brightness. I was worried that only 4 LEDs would not be enough, and spent quite a bit of time deciding between this one and the 8 LED version. In the end, I wanted a smaller light on my spokes so went with the M204. I didn't need to worry; this light is so bright it lights up the ground around my front tire as I ride. Super visible. Provides more light than any other spoke light I've used. It's bright enough that you really only need one. 3) Battery life. I changed the batteries *once* this season (I only use them during my evening ride, and only from October-ish to March-ish). With the cheap LED knockoff I had to swap batteries once every few days. The valve caps lasted maybe 3 weeks. The Spokelit-type lights performed better, but take watch batteries and throw much less light. 4) On-off switch. Both the valve caps and the LED knockoff came on "automatically". The valve caps came on whenever moving. The LED knockoff supposedly only came on in low light and when moving, but was unreliable (usually ran whenever moving). This caused frequent battery changes. 5) Simple control of lighting color and pattern. The LED knockoff didn't have a selector switch. The colors for the M204 are quite nice looking, and I like the ability to pick an LED color that matches the rest of my bike. 6) No issues with rain/water. Rode this light through some serious El Nino rainstorms this year with zero problems. Here's what I wish could be improved in future models: 1) Terrible fastening system. First off, mounting is kind of a pain. The spoke mount isn't bad, but I succeeded in jamming my hand into my spokes hard enough to draw blood when trying to get a tight fit on the hub-mounted battery pack (pulled on it with needle-nose pliers, which slipped, of course). I get that zip ties probably a) make the product cheaper to produce and b) provide much stronger fastening than other spoke-mounted systems (usually either simple "tension" from the spokes or a plastic screw), but it makes it near impossible to easily remove the light. In concession to this fact, MonkeyLectric provides a metal band that you can use to add security, but I actually don't *want* more security, I want to be able to move the light quickly, either to swap to another bike that I might ride that day or to remove because I don't plan on using it. All my other lights have quick-release systems that make this possible -- I would actually be happy enough with some kind of screw/allen wrench mounting system for the light and the battery pack (much like the ones you see on rear light mounts), no need for a quick release, although I expect it would be possible (e.g., the Planet Bike quick cam release system they use on their lights). Heck, I would even be OK with the stretchy band type system you see shipping with super cheap bike lights. That said, the removal wouldn't be such a big deal except: 2) This lighting system is really unfortunate looking. Even though my bike is a commuter, I've spent a little bit of time making it look nice. I wasn't happy about zip-tying a big honking battery pack to my hub. The problem here is really with the battery pack -- I actually don't mind the looks of the light itself, it would have been nice if there was a way to incorporate the battery into the light somehow. Looks like they did this with previous versions but stopped -- I'm guessing it was to standardize the battery pack, giving it the ability to store more battery power and make it work with more of their product line. I would've traded the battery life for a nicer looking solution (ideally, integrated into the light, but would even be ok with a short wire to a spoke mounted battery pack). I'd also prefer to have it take just one battery instead of three for weight and appearance. As is, I'll probably be removing this at the end of every season. I'll then have to remount it each year, and also not get to use it those rare times I'm out after dark past the daylight savings switchover. My other lighting mounts stay on my bike year-round (often, though not always, with the lights still in them). Additionally, I'd *love* to run two of these (back and front), but due to the mounting system and looks I don't really want two of these on my bike. 3) Other battery system annoyances. The battery pack has two plugs so you can expand your system later. Cool! Unless you choose to stick with one light. Then you have an empty plug that just flopping around of the back of your battery pack. I attempted to tape this down with electrical tape, but it's difficult to make that stick (particularly during the rainy season). Would've preferred removable plugs, so I could take the one I'm not using out although I expect this would add to the cost of the unit (you'd probably also need a cover to prevent gunk from getting in). The other problem with the battery pack is that it often slips around the hub (since the mounting system makes it difficult to get it tight). This increases the slack in the wire, sometimes to the point where it periodically slaps against some of the spokes, making an unpleasant 'tink tink tink' sound while you're riding. Overall, I really like this light. I actually bought another as a gift, and will advise others to purchase this brand. Hoping in the future they'll be able to add in some of the features I mentioned.;;Reviewed in the United States on March 8, 2016;;4.0 out of 5 stars;;Great spoke light -- *almost perfect*, but certainly the best you can buy right now.;;Rajan Agaskar;;;The good: Battery case seems to be well constructed, battery lasts as long as advertised, lots of color/pattern modes to choose from, and led's are very bright. The not-so-good: Installation is a bit tricky, especially if you are using the metal "anti-theft"strap, as the instructions are not thorough. When trying to set a different color mode on the device it can be difficult to know where you are in the line-up of settings and end up choosing something unintended, at which point you have to stop, get off the bike, and keep pushing the button to try and set it again, and repeat. The auto feature does not turn the lights off as quickly as I would have hoped after movement has stopped, so I'm questioning whether that feature is worth the additional cost, which is significant compared to the manual version. I was hoping it would turn them off within a few seconds so I could lock my bike and run into a store without my bike continuing to get added attention from passersby. I still have to reach down and turn them off manually.;;Reviewed in the United States on July 19, 2019;;3.0 out of 5 stars;;Good light, but auto on/off feature not worth the extra cost.;;David Miller

The spoke mount isn't bad, but I succeeded in jamming my hand into my spokes hard enough to draw blood when trying to get a tight fit on the hub-mounted battery pack (pulled on it with needle-nose pliers, which slipped, of course). I get that zip ties probably a) make the product cheaper to produce and b) provide much stronger fastening than other spoke-mounted systems (usually either simple "tension" from the spokes or a plastic screw), but it makes it near impossible to easily remove the light. In concession to this fact, MonkeyLectric provides a metal band that you can use to add security, but I actually don't *want* more security, I want to be able to move the light quickly, either to swap to another bike that I might ride that day or to remove because I don't plan on using it. All my other lights have quick-release systems that make this possible -- I would actually be happy enough with some kind of screw/allen wrench mounting system for the light and the battery pack (much like the ones you see on rear light mounts), no need for a quick release, although I expect it would be possible (e.g., the Planet Bike quick cam release system they use on their lights). Heck, I would even be OK with the stretchy band type system you see shipping with super cheap bike lights. That said, the removal wouldn't be such a big deal except: 2) This lighting system is really unfortunate looking. Even though my bike is a commuter, I've spent a little bit of time making it look nice. I wasn't happy about zip-tying a big honking battery pack to my hub. The problem here is really with the battery pack -- I actually don't mind the looks of the light itself, it would have been nice if there was a way to incorporate the battery into the light somehow. Looks like they did this with previous versions but stopped -- I'm guessing it was to standardize the battery pack, giving it the ability to store more battery power and make it work with more of their product line. I would've traded the battery life for a nicer looking solution (ideally, integrated into the light, but would even be ok with a short wire to a spoke mounted battery pack). I'd also prefer to have it take just one battery instead of three for weight and appearance. As is, I'll probably be removing this at the end of every season. I'll then have to remount it each year, and also not get to use it those rare times I'm out after dark past the daylight savings switchover. My other lighting mounts stay on my bike year-round (often, though not always, with the lights still in them). Additionally, I'd *love* to run two of these (back and front), but due to the mounting system and looks I don't really want two of these on my bike. 3) Other battery system annoyances. The battery pack has two plugs so you can expand your system later. Cool! Unless you choose to stick with one light. Then you have an empty plug that just flopping around of the back of your battery pack. I attempted to tape this down with electrical tape, but it's difficult to make that stick (particularly during the rainy season). Would've preferred removable plugs, so I could take the one I'm not using out although I expect this would add to the cost of the unit (you'd probably also need a cover to prevent gunk from getting in). The other problem with the battery pack is that it often slips around the hub (since the mounting system makes it difficult to get it tight). This increases the slack in the wire, sometimes to the point where it periodically slaps against some of the spokes, making an unpleasant 'tink tink tink' sound while you're riding. Overall, I really like this light. I actually bought another as a gift, and will advise others to purchase this brand. Hoping in the future they'll be able to add in some of the features I mentioned.

Good light, but auto on/off feature not worth the extra cost.
The good: Battery case seems to be well constructed, battery lasts as long as advertised, lots of color/pattern modes to choose from, and led's are very bright. The not-so-good: Installation is a bit tricky, especially if you are using the metal "anti-theft"strap, as the instructions are not thorough. When trying to set a different color mode on the device it can be difficult to know where you are in the line-up of settings and end up choosing something unintended, at which point you have to stop, get off the bike, and keep pushing the button to try and set it again, and repeat. The auto feature does not turn the lights off as quickly as I would have hoped after movement has stopped, so I'm questioning whether that feature is worth the additional cost, which is significant compared to the manual version. I was hoping it would turn them off within a few seconds so I could lock my bike and run into a store without my bike continuing to get added attention from passersby. I still have to reach down and turn them off manually.

Great active lateral low light visibility.
I commute 5 days a week about 12 miles per day mostly by bike path. I have been doing this for 9 years. I live in the Seattle area, so half the year my evening commute is in the dark, often with rain. I mounted the light on my front wheel about a month ago (February). I use the rainbow mode where the light cycles through various color modes. Pros: Appears to be water proof. Rugged so far, no problems with durability. It is quite bright at night, even in the rain. The rainbow mode is highly unusual compared to other lights drivers have to sort through at night. I feel (but have not measured) that drivers give me significantly more leeway with these lights. They seem to notice me earlier... There are fewer panicked close calls with drivers at intersections. They are less distracting to me than I originally feared. They did not imbalance my wheel noticeably. I have fairly heavy wheels and tires... Not sure if this would be the same on a light racing wheel. Cons: The wire has to be run along a spoke... Hopefully it will never come loose and wrap up in my front spokes during a ride. The light doesn't make a continuous ring like the picture shows. It's more like what you would expect... You see a little light spinning around the wheel with a bit of a light trail. Not sure about battery life... Haven't replaced them yet. Summary: Best lights for side visibility, an often overlooked safety angle. I would definitely recommend these lights.

Great spoke light -- *almost perfect*, but certainly the best you can buy right now.
I've been riding a bike to work every day without fail for at least the past 5 years, and on and off before that. I am convinced that some kind of spoke light is a necessity for any after-dark riding. I've previously tried the Spokelit-style lights , a knockoff LED spoke light , and LED valve caps . The MonkeyLectric 40 is the best spoke light I've been able to find so far, although there are a few improvements that could be made. What I like: 1) Build quality (mostly, see below). The parts all seem rugged, with no weak points that could break. 2) Brightness. I was worried that only 4 LEDs would not be enough, and spent quite a bit of time deciding between this one and the 8 LED version. In the end, I wanted a smaller light on my spokes so went with the M204. I didn't need to worry; this light is so bright it lights up the ground around my front tire as I ride. Super visible. Provides more light than any other spoke light I've used. It's bright enough that you really only need one. 3) Battery life. I changed the batteries *once* this season (I only use them during my evening ride, and only from October-ish to March-ish). With the cheap LED knockoff I had to swap batteries once every few days. The valve caps lasted maybe 3 weeks. The Spokelit-type lights performed better, but take watch batteries and throw much less light. 4) On-off switch. Both the valve caps and the LED knockoff came on "automatically". The valve caps came on whenever moving. The LED knockoff supposedly only came on in low light and when moving, but was unreliable (usually ran whenever moving). This caused frequent battery changes. 5) Simple control of lighting color and pattern. The LED knockoff didn't have a selector switch. The colors for the M204 are quite nice looking, and I like the ability to pick an LED color that matches the rest of my bike. 6) No issues with rain/water. Rode this light through some serious El Nino rainstorms this year with zero problems. Here's what I wish could be improved in future models: 1) Terrible fastening system. First off, mounting is kind of a pain. The spoke mount isn't bad, but I succeeded in jamming my hand into my spokes hard enough to draw blood when trying to get a tight fit on the hub-mounted battery pack (pulled on it with needle-nose pliers, which slipped, of course).
