Monkey Light M232 Bike Lights – bring fun and safety to night rides, one artwork at a time

Monkey light

Riding a bike is one of those activities that remains fun no matter how old you get. It’s also pretty useful if you’re using it to commute every day in the city, although it helps if you remember that everyone else on that road is out to kill you, and act accordingly. They call it defensive riding, I call it survival. You can also use a few tools to help yourself stay safe. The Monkey Light M232 Bike Light is one such product, which not only looks great, but also makes you more visible to other road users at night time, when visibility is key.

These lights attach to the wheels of your bike so that when you ride, they create fun and unique patterns. Obviously, this is a night time only sort of add on, as the lights – made up of 32 fully programmable LEDs – won’t be so spectacular in full sunlight. The patterns become real at speeds over 10mph, and the unit features a choice of up to 42 themes, 64 colors and five random modes. It runs off 3 AA batteries, and each set will power the lights for up to 25 hours run time. And it’s weatherproof.


They are easy to mount onto any bike, so no matter what kind of ride you have, these lights will be a fit. The patterns they create are programmable and can be changed to the rider’s desire, as well as appeal to the cool 8-bit retro asthetic. So not just fashionable but also functional. The product isn’t just for hipsters who build their own bikes, it’s great for anyone that enjoys night riding as it’s incredibly hard to miss the bright rocket ships, hearts, or color wheel patterns flashing in the darkness. The Monkey Light M232 is $59.99.
