Ever turned on a Planet Bike Superflash taillight and been stoked by how bright yet affordable it was? First you installed it (horrible mounting hardware, curse you Planet Bike!) and then took your bike on a ride. You said, I should ride down this curb to get around this snow cone stand, or over this gopher that someone has placed in my bike path. Then the light split in half, and the reflector and batteries scattered all over the road to be promptly run over by half the population of Sneeze, Maine. So long 20 buck light. What if someone made a light that was as bright as the Superflash, the same price, didn’t make it in China but rather in the land of pofferjes and bitterballen? What if installing the light didn’t involve screwdrivers, shims, cursing and more shims? What if the light was well designed enough to be ridden on mountain bike trails? Oh man, stop this sci-fi dream world right now! Call the fiction police, Azamov has been scheming again.
Wait. The Spanninga Ruby 3 is this mythical light, brought to life not by Pygmalion but by some engineer in a cubicle, doubtless while munching on a plate of bitterballen.
Takes 2 AAA batteries. Keep a spare pair of batteries in your bar bag, or live dangerously and hope you will always be riding near a Stewarts. Or a 7-11, for you flat landers.
