The Monkey Light Pro creates images and animations within a bicycle wheel with the use of 4 bars of LEDs. Once you’re rolling, the display fills the bike wheel and is visible from both sides.
The Monkey Light Pro has sensors to track speed, heads-up position and rotation direction. This allows the system to create stable, full-wheel images from 15 to 65 km/h.
