Spanninga Bicycle Lights Design of Basil's revolutionary collaboration released on Taipei Cycle Show! Non classé

This is what Basil had in mind, when it developed the new innovative carrier together with other international experts in their fields: Spanninga, Tracefy, Massload and MIK. The carrier is developed for the fastest growing global target group: the demanding commuters, who consciously decide to purchase a bicycle for their commute (a design e-bike or speed-pedelec in the mid to very high segment). Basil is convinced that commuters will highly adulate all the unique features during their ride to work & home. Moreover, that they will fall in love with the stylish and modern design of the carrier.

The new Basil Commuter Carrier features countless innovations among which:

  • A new way of hanging your bicycle bag on your carrier: The Basil Shock Absorbing Tube (BSAT©);
    • adjustable tube creates freedom for your heels;
    • suspension reduces forces on your bicycle accessory.
  • An integrated high-visibility rearlight by Spanninga: starring the groundbraking Contour Lighting Technology (CLT©), exclusive for MIK;
  • The Spanninga mobile MIK-flashlight;
  • The fastest growing integrated system for luggage carriers: MIK;
  • MIK Smart Box for Tracefy: the option to make your bike “smart” with the Tracefy IoT system;
  • Production and quality guaranteed by the top carrier producer Massload.

Bicycle of the Year Awards 2019

During the Dutch, annual “Bicycle of the Year” election, which is always organized during the Bike Motion tradefair, the most innovative bikes are granted special awards. As a preferred partner for bicycle lights, Spanninga is always excited to discover which bike brands are prized at this occasion. And this year again, it is with great pride and pleasure that we would like to share that 3 of the awarded bikes/brands are equipped with Spanninga lights!

  1. Bicycle of the Year: Cortina Common
    The major prize of the competition has been given to the CORTINA Common city bike. Featuring Spanninga lights on both front and rear, it is no big surprise that the bike has been complimented for its “no-nonsense cycling pleasure”. The Cortina Common displays on the front the Axendo 40+ dynamo headlamp, and on the rear the Solo dynamo rearlight.
  2. E-bike of the Year: Sparta M8b
    Above all, the SPARTA M8b e-bike scored on its fresh, elegant and contemporary design, in which the design lights were highlighted as a big plus. The integrated headlamp is starred as a real eye-catcher! Spanninga is delighted of the recognition of this headlamp as it is the result of a collaboration with the design teams of Sparta. Displaying COB LED technology and fully integrated above the fork of the e-bike, it is a perfect example of Spanninga’s expertise in custom-made developments.
  3. Bicycle Innovation Award: Brompton Electric
    Equipped with the Spanninga Solo rearlight for e-bikes, the Brompton Electric is a fantastic foldable e-bike. Everything is focused on maintaining user friendliness when using a foldable bike, without reducing its quality. Among others, the automatic lights are mentioned by the jury as being complementary to this result.

Spanninga would like to congratulate all award winners!
