Exposure Lights Bar Lights feature REFLEX Technology which automatically boosts light output when riding hard and fast and automatically dims it for slower sections such as climbs. This also optimises battery use, to provide extra light when needed and save it when not. REFLEX Ai technology achieves this by using data from 3D digital accelerometers – including a gyroscope and thermistors – and continually analysing the data to make seamless lumen output changes to make the ride the best it can be. Simply, it gives the rider the right lumens level at the right time automatically. You can just ride as there’s no button to find. www.exposurelights.com
