Ride the elevator with Chris Slaughter, co-founder of Mystic Devices.

The Hydra3 is the world’s first terrain-adaptive bike light. The light senses your motion and automatically steers the light around corners like headlights on high-end luxury cars. Now you can ride tight switchbacks and flow through singletrack with confidence as the light goes where you need it, when you need it—guaranteeing maximum visibility and run-time. 

The light has a large internal rechargeable battery, but it can also be powered directly by a USB battery pack via its USB‐C port. This means the user has the flexibility for after-work rides, or all night endurance races, and there is no need for separate pieces of equipment. 

No more headlamp required. In the end, this is the only bike light you’ll ever need.

A Kickstarter fundraiser for the light ends on Nov. 12.
