The Draw: Combines Fun with Function
Once we got a feel for all the neat features of the Vibe Pro, we kept saying to ourselves, “Why didn’t we think of that?” First, there is the “naked” case, which helps minimize the size and weight. Then, there are no buttons to push (or break), as the onboard accelerometer knows when you are moving and turns the light on and o as needed. The headlight senses day from night and adjusts the beam appropriately. The Vibe goes on your bike like putting a key in the ignition—just a quarter-turn and o you go, and charging works just like popping a thumb-drive into a USB port. Finally, the lights are super bright and pulse/flash in a pattern designed to optimally attract a motorist’s eye.
