It’s been a few months since I came back from my lovely second hometown Sacramento last year…met up with some new and old homies, especially the real dude behind Lockedcog, Kris Fay. I got this set of Knog Pop Duo Bike Lights from him but never really had an opportunity to have them shot! Special thanks to my friend again, Y.C Tang, for running our night time experiment!
The light itself, apparently, is not their brightest model in the category…but I think it’s actually good enough for urban riders like me. It comes with 5 different light modes and the visibility at distances is over 1000 meters. Like other lights of Knog, it comes with the quick release mounting so that you won’t even need 5 seconds to set them up! Overall, as far as I am concerned, this set of lights is great for the rider who commutes in the city. If you are going to climb some hills at night with low light and low visibility, I recommend you to get a higher level, which is the brighter one! Anyway, I’m still stoked to see the outcomes of these photos from my boy!
Knog has just launched a Kickstarter for what will surely be the sleekest bike hit the market. The Oi does away with a typical round resonator to one that is no bigger than a bar end or small light. Where most bells stick up off the bars or look a little off these bad boys are sleek as hell. I’m a fan of the “ding ding” and have some bells myself but you can bet the Oi will be replacing most…pop over to see the campaign!
The pals at Knog sent over some of their latest and greatest this week to get the once over. I’ll be passing these out to a couple of the other messenger dudes to get a few different perspectives on how the newest to the Blinder series and the fresh POP sets take to the night. To peep the whole line-up of Knog goodies be sure to pop on over!
If you’re looking for power in a small package, now you can call on Knog’s Mob for the job. This slim and lightweight series packs quite the punch with a slew of features including interchangeable straps and rechargeable lithium batteries. No broken kneecaps here just five front and rear lights ranging from the 16 LED Kid Grid to the tall Mr. Chips. Click through to check them all then pop over to Knog for the full run down before you get run down!
With the recent wave trade shows Knog released a nice collection of new lights for the winter months. Adding to the already primo Blinder line are the 220 and 640 front lights. Compact and packing enough lumens to light the way home, these are the go to’s for lighting up the night. Pop over for full details and to swoop before the the night takes over!
Knog recently upgraded their Milkman cable lock to a combo system. The Milkman Combo won’t replace the security of a u-lock/chain but if you’re heading out for a 6-pack it’ll sure do the trick. Pop over for the low down and to swoop!
This video contest from Knog is definitely something get behind. “No Ordinary Night” calls for filmers and adventurers who go bump in the night. A short one to two minute flick could land you $10,000 in prizes from a whole gang of sponsors. More details below and be sure to hit the official site for the whole scoop!
A bit back the friends at Knog sent through their lightweight Party Combo for a little street Testing. After a using around town for quick beer runs and a bit of extra security I’d say it deserves a bit of a rest. Below are a few things I liked and fewer that I didn’t as well as a handful of photos to peep. Having waited a bit on this review I wanted to have some fun with the flicks so I took to downtown after work yesterday to catch some of the buzz…
This cable lock doesn’t suck. That should be enough of a review right there because more often than not they do. Too long a cable or too crappy a lock makes you nervous to let them be seen with your bike let alone on it. The Party Combo from Knog tightens it up into a nice, simple looking design that you won’t mind carrying around. Personally I would have gone with black or one of the other 7 colors available for however “bright” your taste might be.
Leave it to Knog to come up with some of the best lighting solutions for everyday problems. The new [qudos] LED light gives you that extra bit of extra light for using your GoPro (or other adapted cameras) at night. Looks like it packs quite the punch for a little guy and looks like a must have for on the go filming. More info here!
Knog recently dropped this quick little lock job for when you need something small and simple. The Party Combo lock does away with the need for a key to make popping into the corner store or securing that front wheel as easy as possible. I’ll be rolling around with it at work for the next couple weeks to see how well it takes a daily beating. A few more snaps after the click and check back soon for the full review. If you can wait…peep more here!
