Light & Motion’s New TAZ 1500 is Brighter than a Motorcycle Headlight

Light & Motion, the innovative manufacturer of personal lighting systems and LED bicycle lights, is expanding its TAZ line of compact, rechargeable lights with the new TAZ 1500.

The new TAZ 1500 adds lumens and color to create a light with power and style. A highly versatile bar-mounted bike light with uncompromised runtime, the TAZ 1500 boasts 300 more lumens than the last year’s top of the line TAZ 1200.

The TAZ 1500 lets you roll for 1.5 hours on high, 3 hours on medium, and 6 hours on low. “On the medium setting the Taz delivers more light to the trail than our HID ARC lights of 7 years ago. Taz is a remarkable light in a small package.” Says Daniel Emerson, CEO.

The carefully engineered TAZ features “Regulated Light Output” to ensure the TAZ delivers its full brightness for every battery cycle. 

The TAZ’s smooth beam and beautifully engineered reflectors give the light a perfect beam to do double duty as a commuter or off-road light. Off-road riders will appreciate the dashboard features that allow independent control of the front and amber side lights. The time-based race mode allows riders to extend their runtime by toggling back and forth between high and low. Commuters can use this mode to dim the TAZ for oncoming pedestrian and wheeled traffic. The “pulse” mode is ideal for foggy, rainy, daytime cycling and the easy, tool-less mounting system makes changing lights from bike to bag a cinch.

 “As a commuter sharing the streets with motorized vehicles, I want to know that my light is equal to cars when I need it to be,” said Kevin Mitchell, Light & Motion Sales Manager and transportation cyclist. “The strength of the beam of the TAZ 1500, combined with its side lights, reassures me that I will be seen.”

Visibility at intersections is critical to bicycle commuter safety, where over 72% of accidents occur. Light & Motion was the first company to incorporate amber side markers to ensure that cyclists would be seen by overtaking cars and at intersections. 

TAZ 1500 features:

  • 1500 lumen output certified to the FL-1 Standard. 
  • The World’s Brightest While LEDS (CREE)
  • Custom engineered reflector/optics with tailored beam pattern (spot with flood combination)
  • Easy to attach bar mount
  • Accurate battery status indicator
  • USB Rechargeable
  • Factory sealed, waterproof design – tested to 1 meter
  • Colors: Smoked Porter (TAZ 1200 available in Obsidian Stout - $239)

Weight: 216 grams
MSRP: $299
Available: July 2014
