Light & Motion Introduces the Nip & Tuck: the New Benchmark in Electric Bike Lighting

– Compact and powerful, this new line offers clean, integrated mounting options for 6v to 18v e-bikes –

Marina, CA, September 8, 2016 – Light & Motion, the premier manufacturer of bike, underwater, camera and outdoor LED lights, is revolutionizing e-bike lighting with Nip & Tuck – the new benchmark in e-bike lighting. These paired head and rear lights – which can be used together or separately – can be seamlessly integrated into electric bicycles, providing a powerful lighting system previously unseen in the e-bike market.

“We surveyed the stock light set-ups and found them to be sorely lacking, both in terms of power and performance. Thanks to our engineering team, we’ve revolutionized the market with the Nip & Tuck – a high-powered solution with a compact, durable design,” said Daniel Emerson, CEO of Light & Motion. “We’re excited to give e-bike riders the kind of lighting performance that their bike deserves. Designed to provide peace of mind with safe and effective illumination, Nip & Tuck represents the next level of integrated e-bike lighting.”


Nip, the headlight, illuminates with an 800- or 500-lumen spot beam with multiple low-profile mounting options. Tuck, the taillight, blasts a strong, 25-lumen red pulse. Its innovative under-seat attachment provides visibility at the highest point on the bike.


Nip & Tuck feature hi-intensity amber side lighting, establishing 360 degrees of protective visibility at intersections and high-traffic areas – an often overlooked but critical safety feature. Both are also fully waterproof, making them ideal for commuting in any condition.

Integrating into the on-board battery, the system can be controlled from compatible e-Bike computer interfaces.
