Magicshine – Bright Lights, Competitive Price

It’s getting to be that time of year that days are becoming shorter, and you have less time to get out after work for your ride. Lights help to extend your day, and can also make you more visible to other road users any time of the day, making them a piece of equipment that I never ride without. While looking at options, I stumbled across Magicshine, a brand that offers a wide range of light products at very competitive prices. They sent one of their  2000 lights for review, which we are currently putting through its paces, but here is a little more on the brand and an overview of the product line in the meantime
The  was founded in 1999, and has over 20 years of experience in lighting. In 2007, they released their first cycling light, the , a single beam LED, external  light designed for mountain biking. Since then, they have worked to refine and diversify their line to include more powerful, longer-lasting lights, along with “be seen” front and rear lights.

Magicshine SEEMEE 30


Magicshine's product line has many athletes and outdoor enthusiasts covered. Besides a wide range of bike lights, the brand also makes headlamps and flashlights that can be used for running, hiking, camping, and any other activity that you need some additional light. Since we are a cycling site, we'll focus on those, but check out their website to learn more about their other lights.

Magicshine SEEMEE 60


Starting at the low end of light output is the SEEME line. These are the “be seen” front and rear lights. The rear lights, the SEEME 20, 30, 60, 100, and 200 rear tail lights all have a maximum output based on their name. Constant outputs are a bit lower, but they all use accelerometers and vibration sensors for some pretty neat tricks. When you are riding and hit the brakes, the accelerometers trigger a burst of flashing strobes at the max lumens to notify other road users you are braking. The vibration sensors allow the light to go to sleep after a minute stationary. Once you start moving, the sensors will turn the lights back on.

It also has an LED screen on the top that can show light mode, battery level, and remaining time left. The battery is also removable, so you can buy a backup for longer riders and swap once the first battery is dead.

As mentioned earlier, we have an ALLTY 2000 in for review. I used it for a 5+ hour gravel ride in the rain in flashing mode. It barely made a dent in the battery and worked well mounted under my Wahoo Element. I need to put some time in with it on a night ride, but I have no doubts that it will light my way without a problem.
