SEE.SENSE ACE Rear Light
The See.Sense ACE bike light was Kickstarted to life by 4000 cyclists who wanted to make their rides brighter, safer and more connected. It's been developed by cyclists, for cyclists, combines five years of R&D, and is ideal for those commuting to work.
With an impressive 125 lumen output, ACE makes you more visible at riskier moments, keeps you connected through a smartphone app, and gives you the chance to improve the roads you cycle on.
When you face moments of increased risk on your commute (e.g. at junctions, filtering traffic or high-stress intersections), ACE reacts by automatically flashing brighter and faster to make you more visible to other road users. It also shines powerfully both in daylight and at night, helps you be seen from over a mile away, and gives you 200 degrees of all-round visibility.
See.Sense's award-winning bike lights don't just make you safer on the road though. They work with the companion app to give you a voice. Through the app, you can:
- Help create better cycling infrastructure for everyone by sharing your rides with Transport Planners, or providing them with direct feedback.
- Receive theft alerts if your bike is moved without you, automatically send crash alerts to a nominated contact, and get low battery notifications.
- Control and customise your lights by changing their flash mode, brightness level or flash patterns.
- See your cycling stats or pair ACE with a compatible Garmin device thanks to ACE's ANT+ technology.

See.Sense Ace review, Cycling Plus magazine, March 2019:
Highs: Impressive amount of tech built into a small package, great value too
Lows: Not the best-looking units and the mounts are a little basic
Verdict: A seriously clever set of lights for the civically minded among us.
