Intro... Over the past several months, I have gone through bicycle tail lights, LED strip lights, and flashlights -- trying to figure out what the most convenient, yet effective safety light would be for me to carry on my person during evening/night rides. The bicycle tail lights were cumbersome and limited in the way I could mount them to myself or my bag. LED strip lights required me to carry an additional battery pack, and fiddling with settings that were not easy or quick to navigate. Flashlights were difficult to mount, and had a bad throw pattern for people following me. There were seemingly no *great* solutions for personal safety lights, that would give ample warning to those behind me that there is someone on the road, without blinding them out, or being a burden for me to use. Then I found the Guardian Angels Devices! I had been looking at Guardian Angel Devices for quite a while, however I never bit the bullet because I was skeptical about spending $100 on a safety light. Well, I purchased a hard shell back protecting backpack, the Point65 Boblbee 25L backpack, and I decided to deck it out with something that wasn't as cheesy as just running LED strips on the outside of that beautiful shell. I wanted something streamlined. Something highly visible from both sides, and behind me, easy to turn on and cycle through the different modes. Something that had an internal battery with a high runtime, and has a solid build construction. Lastly, I wanted something that I could easily swap from my backpack, to my shirt, pants, the EUC itself, etc. (They have great mounting options, and it's all based around super-strong neodymium magnets.) The Guardian Angel Elite ticked all of those boxes. So, I went ahead and placed the order. You'll find the review at the bottom of this post. How to Purchase...

Upgraded from a Tesla v2 to a Nikola AR+ and was wondering about what modifications I could make to it. One of the first things I noticed is that the stock pads (oval) make the wheel fatter and uncomfortable to ride, so I bought some motorcycle tank pads for grip. I also added soft velcro on the sides of the handle slot to give it more friction, as I'm sure I don't want the handle popping out during a crash. Something tells me that I need power pads for wheel torque, as this wheel is harder to get going than the Tesla. Also factory calibration might be a degree forward, which makes things harder, but I'm not sure if I can get a better calibration (aiming for a degree backward instead) without proper tools to ensure leveling. Is there a way to remove the logo on the back to get a proper rear light? Or should I just go for a standalone light strapped to the handle (either battery powered or connected to the wheel itself) I've been told that only the inside of the shell (above the tire) needs waterproofing, along with tape on the power button. Is that all? Any recommendations for waterproofing this wheel in general are welcome. On a side note, only got to ride the Nikola AR+ yesterday (been raining all day today) but so far I love it. It checks off all the boxes I had in mind : Higher range, higher top speed (so safer cruising at 30mph), robust shell without water ingress through handle, powerful night lights, broader tire, and stability at high speeds. Might have to pick up chest/shoulder/back protection, now that I'll be travelling at high speeds regularly, so doing my due diligence and weighing my options (either Lazyrolling jackets or motorcycle armor).
Hello guys! I am waiting for my new KS18L to arrive from china in couple of days and I am thinking about adding some lights and reflective tape on it... I am gonna ride it at night quite a lot, because I have my floorball trainings late and from the end of summer to spring, there's getting dark really early in the afternoon in my country..(czech rep.). Have you guys some tips how to be more visible at night on an euc? Some reflective tape on my helmet and of course EUC's lights always ON... I think I am gonna add some reflective tape on the wheel..but I think some bike lights would be better...but how to mount it? Thank you guys! Hope you are having great day full of riding!
