Arclight CITY LED Pedals
Staying visible is the best way to keep yourself safe on the bike. The Arclight Pedals amplify your biological motion, making you up to 57% more visible to drivers than standard bike lights. Powerful LEDs and long lasting rechargeable batteries ensure you will stand out and stay safe even on your longest ride, day or night.
57% More Visible
Scientific studies performed by Clemson University* and others show that adding lighted bio-motion (motion that is associated with the natural movement of the human body) increases the visibility of your bike at night by up to 57% compared to standard front/rear lights.
*”Highlighting Bicyclist Biological Motion Enhances Their Conspicuity in
Daylight” (Darlene E. Edewaard, Drea K. Fekety, Ellen C. Szubski, Richard A. Tyrrell, 2020)
The wraparound design of the Arclight LED Modules mean that the pedals illuminate every angle of your bike at night - providing 360° of visible light protection.
The light modules turn on when they sense you have started moving, and turn off once you are parked.
SmartSet sensors dynamically change the LED color depending on orientation so you always have white light forward and red light rear.
Multiple Light Modes
36 hours of battery life mean you won't have to charge too often. And with 3 different light modes you can choose the best setting for visibility and battery life.
Weatherproof & High Performance
The Arclight CITY pedals are made from rugged aluminum and employ high quality sealed bearings. The light modules are water and dust resistant to reliably work in all conditions. These flat bike pedals use standard 9/16-inch threading which is compatible with all modern bicycles.
Secure and simple magnetic magic!
The Light Modules have a built-in USB plug for easy charging on any standard USB charger (or with the included 4-port hub.)
Versatile Mounting System
Check out the Multi-Mount (sold separately) for convenient ways to mount your Arclight Light Modules outside of the pedals.

Arclight Pedals are legal for use in most countries, including the US. Regulations vary by country, and depend on the conditions of use. So, we recommend that you check local rules to confirm compliance. With regard to Germany specifically, the Arclight Pedals do not meet the StVZO regulations for use on public roads.
ASTM F2043 Class 1 - suitable for road riding (only). If you are looking for an off-road capable Arclight Pedal you can use the Arclight PRO flats.
What style pedal (flat versus clipless and/or traction pins versus teeth) should I choose? Arclight City Pedals - Choose the Arclight City pedals for commuting or recreational riding on e-bikes, commuter bikes, or hybrid bikes. The aluminum teeth provide all-weather grip but are less likely to damage shoe soles and are friendlier to your shins and clothing. Arclight PRO Flat Pedals - Choose the Arclight PRO Flat pedals for increased performance and MTB-style grip that will keep your feet planted on even the most demanding on or off-road rides. The 10 replaceable traction pins on each side of each pedal are great for riding in any conditions with your mountain/MTB, gravel, commuter, e-bike, hybrid, recreation, or road bike. Arclight PRO Clipless Pedals The Arclight PRO Clipless pedals are currently unavailable - sign up here to be notified when they are available.
How much grip do the pedals have? The Arclight PRO Flat pedals have serious grip. They utilize MTB style traction pins that will keep your feet planted even when the riding gets rough. The Arclight City pedals feature integrated, non-removable aluminum grip "teeth" around the perimeter of the pedal that provide excellent traction on all types of shoes. While they do not have the same level of grip as pins, the aluminum teeth are less likely to damage shoe soles and are friendlier to your shins and clothing.
Is there a clipless/SPD compatible version available? The Arclight PRO Clipless pedals are currently unavailable - sign up here to be notified when they are available.
Are there any limits on where I can use Arclights and are they legal in Germany? Arclight Pedals are legal for use in most countries, including the US. Regulations do vary significantly by country, and even within a country they depend on the conditions of use, including bike type, trail/road type, time of day, etc. Because of that, we recommend that you check local rules to confirm that Arclight Pedals are acceptable based on your individual situation. With regard to Germany specifically, our understanding is that the Arclight Pedals do not meet the StVZO regulations for use on public roads because of the ability to change from steady to flash.
Will the lights shake out if I hit a bump? The secure magnetic attachment is true to its name. In hundreds of hours of testing over all types of terrain, we have not had a single light module eject from a pedal or from the multi-mount.
