Break it? No Problem. We Got You Covered

The Outbound Difference

Riding at night can be scary, or downright insane. We get it, we’ve been there. Although with the right lights it can be an amazing experience. Just you, your friends, no one else on the trails and an entirely new riding experience awaits when you are riding with Outbound Lights.

We know there are hundreds of choices out there for you when it comes to bicycle lights. From questionably cheap stuff with exaggerated ratings to incredibly expensive and well-reviewed systems. However there is one thing they all have in common, circular beam patterns. You may have never noticed this, or cared about it; but this why Outbound Lighting was started.

Real Innovation

Who Are We?

My name is Matt Conte, and I was an automotive lighting engineer that noticed that bike lights on the market were essentially just a high-powered flashlight.

No one was developing lights like we do in the automotive sector. Where lighting targets are set, angles defined, intensities assigned, and hours of software simulation let us tweak optics until we achieved the illumination field that allows you to use your peripheral vision to see objects, while providing enough light forward to see comfortably at high speeds.

Because of that, I set out to build a better bike light, and Outbound Lighting is the result of a year of prototyping, design, and a successful crowd-sourced funding campaign. We’ve sold nearly 1,000 of our groundbreaking bike lights with stellar reviews. It’s a light that is truly meant to be experienced in person as photos and videos are incredibly hard to pick up the nuanced lighting profile that was developed.

American Engineered. American Built.

Not only were these lights developed to reset expectations for bike lights, but also designed it to be made in our workshop located just outside of St. Louis, MO. A focus on design for manufacturing (DFM) let’s us build these lights quickly and with superb quality instead of relying on questionable overseas assembly shops. As we grow we intend to keep manufacturing state-side in an effort to maintain our reputation for quality. Each component was engineered for a purpose and to stay as simple as possible. Function over form.

Magnesium die cast housing, optical grade silicone lens, polycarbonate metalized reflectors, high quality LG lithium ion batteries, no component was skimped on.

"I was descending one of our local twisty roads with the Road Edition on my wife's bike, and it was the most comfortable nighttime descent of that road I've ever experienced, and the light wasn't even on my bike!"
