Single Tube DLG Systems: cool, safe, and simple!

Great for kids and commuters.

When you want to experience Cool Safety in it’s simplest form, you’ll want to pick up a Single Tube DLG system. Single tube systems look great, are easy to install, and have long battery life when compared to our dual tube systems (5-6 hours versus 3 hours).

If you’re the type of person who likes to move lights from one bike to another, or take them off your bike because you’re concerned about theft, you’ll like the fact that the single tube system has fewer parts to keep track of.

Single versus Dual. One might quickly conclude that the Single tube system is half as bright because it has half as many light tubes. But consider the position and the angle of the light tube. The single tube system, mounted on the down tube of your bicycle, hits the side angles so that when you’re in an intersection, cars entering from different streets can see you.  When you look down to catch your own aura as you ride, the light from that forward mounted light tube stretches to the edges of your peripheral vision. As the rider, you won’t perceive the Dual Tube system to be twice as bright as the Single.

So if you’re looking for a great gift for a kid, bicycle commuter, or anyone who’s got enough things to worry about already, get them a Single Tube system.

If on the other hand, you’re looking to take the street glow to the max and create an all-out party mode for your bike, you’ll be more psyched about our dual-tube systems.
