Valentine’s Day: a hot pink helmet from Cane Creek and Love Lights from Knog
Love is in the air, or at least it is at Cane Creek and Knog headquarters, with both brands releasing limited-edition goodies to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Remember folks, beauty is in the eye of the beholder… so here’s what follows.
Cane Creek Helm MKII in Hot Pink
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a Hot Pink Helm. When the MKII model launched, Cane Creek only released 50 units of the Pink option worldwide. If you ran out then here’s a second chance, although once again these are available in “extremely limited quantities”.
The Hot Pink is limited to the 29″ fork with the 44mm offset, priced at $1099.99 USD. It is set up for 160mm of travel, although the Helm MKII air spring is easily adjustable at home down to as little as 100mm of travel. An added bonus here is the inclusion of the bolt-on Helm fender.
Knog Blinder Mini Love Lights
Knog introduced a limited-edition Valentine’s Day version of its Blinder front light; the Mini Love Light, made up of surface-mounted LEDs arranged in the shape of a love heart. These put out up to 50 lumens with a 20 degree beam, so you should be seen up to 800m away.
They have a run time of up to 30 hours in eco-flash mode and are programmed with 8 lighting modes: constant high, constant low, low flash, high flash, fade flash, pulse flash, accelerated flash and eco flash. . The Mini Love Knog Blinder front and rear lights have built-in USB charging and are 100% waterproof. Both are available now from Bike Inn for £21.99 each.
