The Betty Bike Lamp: World’s Brightest (for now)


Flip on your bike light and watch oncoming traffic slam on the brakes and steer onto sidewalks. The Lupine Lighting System Betty is a 22-watt, 1400-lumen bike light that’s certain to do permanent retinal damage to anyone unfortunate enough to look at you when you say, “Check out my new bike light” a moment before flipping it on. The Lupine has 3 brightness settings, with the weakest setting giving you a flashing disco mode that lasts for one month off one charge. The setup costs a ridiculous $1185, but you can’t put a price on safety—or cars flashing their high beams at you.
