    I have been riding bicycles since the 60ís and now Iím in my 60ís. Not as fast, but Iíve ridden at least 5,000 miles this year with at least 2,000 miles with my DesignShine Lighting system. Iíve used about every type of light and find this system superior to all others. When I ride in the morning and evening using the bright tail light vehicles pass me with a wide safety space. With other lights, cars closely pass me as if Iím not visible and I've had several very close calls. I have the tail light with the head light combination mounted to my helmet. I ride 99.99% on the street, this combination allows vehicles to clearly see me and I have had no close calls with this combination. This system has many different light settings allowing me great flexibility. With the extra battery pack, I can ride for weeks without recharging. I would recommend this lighting system, over any other system, to my best friends, my sons, my grandchildren and anyone I care about. Itís that good. Thank you Stephen for developing such a clear, bright, long lasting and superior lighting system.

    You've got to see this...

    New user video from a customer over at MTBR. Head-to-head comparison with the Dinotte Daytime. Both were being run at their respective highest power levels for comparison. Obviously you would never EVER want to do this under normal circumstances. Still very cool to watch.

    He had the Dinotte on the helmet along with two RedZones (side firing).
    DS-500 was on the seatpost in EMS flash mode.

    I want to give my thanks to Stephen for the light he built for our racing boat. He built the DS1300 to be mounted on the bow of our racing canoe, so we could paddle at night in a 120 mile race. It needed to be bright, waterproof and lightweight. The light was all of these...it greatly surpassed our expectations! We had certainly one of the brightest lights in the race, if not the brightest. Other paddles would follow behind us to use our light, because ours was simply brighter and showed a wider area than theirs. One comment we got was "That's a great light if you're trying to land a plane!"

    Stephen not only built the light to the specs we needed, he designed a mounting bracket for us, for no extra charge. We could not have ask for more personal, professional and satisfactory service than we received!

    Steve,
    Thank you for a brilliantly designed set of DS-1300 and DS-500 lights

    My new yellow baby now allows me to safely cruise down an unlit bike-way at 60 kph (38 mph), instead of 40 kph (25 mph) with a Magicshine 808!!! AND it is still visible from 60 degrees to 90 degrees in Daylight and I think 150 degrees at night.

    At night all three rear lights are very visible but the Designshine is definitely brighter at all angles.

    The beauty of the Designshine is that in the flashing mode , the power can be reduced to 10% of the maximum, where the Dinotte can only flash at full power, which is OK during the day, but WAY TOO BRIGHT at night!

    I too am the proud father of a pair of Designshine lights in the Island Down Under!
