Compact styling incorporating excellent light output with 220° visibility thanks to the special lens system. Incorporating B&Ms revolutionary LineTec technology which allows road users behind you to better judge your distance as they approach you. The patented lens system creates a wide strip of light from one high output LED.
LineTec - Light strip for more safety
LineTec: Is a special lens system, the light of one high power LED is spread out to become a wide strip of homogeneous light. Why is that important? In the past if one approached a bicycle from behind at night, one could only see a single point of light emitting from the rear light and estimating the distance to the rider accurately was difficult. To accurately estimate the distance, the human eye requires a spatial relationship to any reference point in the dark. A rear light sending out a LineTec light strip emits spatial light allowing other road users to estimate the distance much better and quickly
