The Afterburner tail light puts out 30 lumens, or 60 if you get the Boost version
The Aviator headlight puts out 150 lumens, or 300 if you get the Boost version
One charge of the battery should be good for 40 hours of use with the Aviator, or 200 hours with the less-intense Afterburner
Both lights feature water- and shockproof aluminum construction, and mount on the handlebar or seat post using a custom security screw and corresponding Allen key
Fortified Bicycle Alliance will replace any Aviator or Afterburner that is stolen or stops working, for as long as the buyer owns it
The weight of each of the lights, either model or either version, is 128 grams (4.5 oz)
Life would certainly be simpler for bicycle commuters if they could just leave their lights on their bikes all the time, but – in most cases – doing so could likely result in the lights being stolen while the bike was parked on the street. MIT grad Slava Menn addressed this problem last year, by helping to create the revolver-like Defender theft-resistant headlight. Now, he's working on a similarly street-proof headlight and tail light, that are sleeker than the Defender but just as hard to steal – or wreck.
