Light and Motion Vya Switch: Innovative Lighting

Light and Motion Vya Switch

As if the crossover from bikes to cameras isn’t interesting enough (for me) the Light and Motion Vya Switch is the most innovate bike light I’ve used this year. During a trip with Sony this summer, I tried out a set and have used them on my townie ever since.

The killer feature is motion activation. That’s a feature so obvious, why don’t more lights offer it? I don’t know, but it means that you charge the light, attach it to your bike, and it’s stop/starting just like your computer does.

Pretty cool, huh? Yep. I also appreciate the minimalist design aesthetic, it looks futuristic like it could light up a spaceship too.

If you’re shopping for the cyclists that has everything, if they don’t have this, I bet they’ll like it as much as I do. Get the combo for $99 $39 on Amazon.
