About

The great diffusion of flashing lights on bicycles shows how useful they are for safety on the streets. However, they are often bulky and not designed neither to be carried in pocket nor to be useful even when getting off the bicycle.

That’s why we created FLARE, the first true multifunctional flashlight designed to be useful in many occasions and daily events, both indoors and outdoors, Powerful and versatile, but so compact that it can be used as a key ring.

MULTIFUNCTIONAL: FLARE has several adjustable light sources and different modes of operation.
LONG-LASTING BATTERY: FLARE has a Li-ion rechargeable battery inside it with long life for each charge.
SMART: every function of FLARE is managed by a powerful microcontroller that increases its performances in complete safety.
FOR EVERYBODY: FLARE is designed to be useful and fun for adults and children, both during spare time and at work, also thanks also to the accessories that allow you to hook it on the body, on the clothes and on the bicycle.

This is why FLARE is a really multifunction mini flashlight:

3 VERSIONS

FLARE has been developed in 3 versions, which differ from each other only in the type of light mounted on the rear of the device: LASER, GAME or UV. All versions have in common the front part with two main sources: powerful WHITE light and RED light. Therefore, the versions are:

1) LASER version: mounts the sources WHITE, FLASH RED, LASER
2) GAME version: mounts the sources WHITE, FLASH RED, GAME
3) UV version : mounts the sources WHITE, FLASH RED, UV

 Powerful LEDs 


FLARE mounts State-of-the-art high-power surprisingly bright white LEDs (100 Lumen, about twice the light that a smartphone flash can emit), with a uniform and wide beam, whose intensity can be adjusted. This function is very useful during blackouts and for finding things in the darkness.


Full wide angle

FLARE offers a powerful flashing red light with dimmable intensity and extremely wide angle range which permits you to illuminate almost 360 degrees around you and make you visible from up to 1 km away. 

Dimmable Intensity

Both the white and red lights are dimmable, just keep the button pressed when the light is ON. In this way you will be able to conserve battery life andget many hours of running time from a single charge.

Funny

Where are we going tonight? What are we having for dinner? Is it love or not?... A fun head or tail game, where FLARE runs through the available colours before randomly stopping on one colour. Useful for resolving indecisions with friends and family in a nice way!

Rechargeable battery


Flare is powered by a big built-in Li-ion battery which can be quickly recharged using micro USB ports. We have carefully engineered the internal volume of Flare in order to insert a big and reliable battery and to get the longest battery life. 

 
 

Small in size, all the power

Comparing Flare with a standard alkaline AA battery, you can really appreciate how it is extremely thin. Also, its weight is very very light. You can comfortably kept Flare in your pocket. 

Perfect as keychain

Over the last few months our team worked around the clock just on projecting the innovative electronic circuit and the innovative, compact and ergonomic design, always aiming for the maximum user friendliness.
We carried out a series of tests on the various prototypes to verify the quality of each component.  

The following video shows some prototypes in action. The plastic case of the prototypes we show, are printed in-house with our 3D printer and painted. The 3D printer allowed us to check easily all the design details and quickly make the revisions. Of course, for the final production of FLARE will be used the high quality injection molding industrial process.

Risks and challenges

Many of us have work for years in the electronic and industrial design, so we are confident that we can manage all the steps and overcome the unexpected problems.

However in any hardware project, there are always potential risks we keep into account. The most challenges regard the manufacturing and the supply chain, because we want produce a very high quality and durable product. More orders we will receive and less hard will be for us.

About the logistics, we have experience in fulfillment and international shipping. The most challenges are related to the management of many orders that could compromise the on time delivery.

Should there be any uncontrollable factor contributing to delays, we will keep you, our awesome backers, up to date, and you can also reach out to us anytime!

Our ultimate aim is to deliver exceptional quality product to our highly valued community. We will continue to work hard because we would that community will continue to follow us beyond this project.
