German innovation and precision-manufacturing pack incredible power and performance into a compact, durable housing, designed to last. In addition to the incredible brightness, the ROTLICHT has some incredible safety features - like a brake light and brightness sensor- ideal for cyclists, bicycle commuters, and nighttime adventure-seekers.

  • BRAKE LIGHT: When you brake, the built in acceleration sensor turns the light brighter to gain more attention on the streets.

  • BRIGHTNESS SENSOR: Automatic ambient light adjustment. If for example a car comes closer, the light turns brighter.


ROTLICHT's high-quality aluminum housing and the rugged polycarbonate front cover are extremely resistant and protect your red light from ruggesd wear-and-tear, dust and water.


With the durable EPDM strap, the ROTLICHT can easily be mounted on bicycle seat-tubes (from 22 - 55 mm diameter). Add versatility to your set-up by adding a ROTLICHT Seat Rail Mount Kit and Crossbar Rail Mount to easily swap your light between bikes.


With the Rotlicht you have the choice of four different light modes and up to five different dimming levels available. With a single keystroke you switch between the light programs quickly and easily or adjust the sensor settings of your situation.

We recommend purchasing the ROTLICHT Seat Rail Mount Kit to securely place your light below the saddle. With the simple push of a button, you can easily unlock your light and charge, if necessary. 

If you already have your ROTLICHT Taillight mounted with the Seat Rail Mount Kit to one of your bikes, a spare Crossbar Rail Mount secured to your other bike allows you to seamlessly swap your ROTLICHT between bikes in seconds. This little accessory is a great way to add versatility to your nighttime biking setup.

   Awesome !, March 17, 2021  By Anonymous (LOUISVILLE, KY)(Verified)
This is a must have - superior to all others
   Bigger battery = longer light!, September 7, 2019  By Adam Carr 
I posted this under the standard tail light model as it applies to this unit as well in terms of why I am happy with the unit. However the MAX version is obviously unique as this battery will last as long as my endurance rides over 4 hours. And on top of that allow me to forget to charge it for a few days.

I have the MAX version of this product and while it takes a moment to setup the way you prefer - it's excellent from there on out setting it and forgetting it. The light brightness itself is excellent but what I notice most relative to the other blinkies and lights I have had - is how well it's made. Of all the things I have to replace I don't want to be purchasing lights year in and year out after they die or break. This unit feels rugged and given how much I commute and ride I couldn't be more stoked.
