Welcome to the Future of Cycling Safety
We love cycling. We would cycle anywhere and everywhere if we could. It's great exercise, it lets us see more of the world around and it's good for the environment. And because we love it so much, we want to make your bike trips as comfortable and safe as possible. Whether you are riding in good or bad weather, in the day time or after sundown, along the main road or on a mountain path, good lighting is essential for your safety and the safety of others — and a reliable and bright bike tail light can, in fact, save a life.
This is Raz Pro
Raz is a smart bike tail light built for safety and designed for an exceptional group cycling experience. Fitted with 12 full color high-brightness LEDs, brake and bump alerts, ambient light sensors and the first of its kind auto group-sync feature, Raz will keep you fully visible day and night.
Raz Pro Keeps You Safe
A tail light’s main job is to keep you seen — and Raz Pro is an expert. The light’s spectacular 270-degree beam angle and 60 Lumens of brightness make sure you are seen from up to 1,000 meters. This makes the light a great choice for daily commuters and anyone cycling along the main roads or off the beaten track.
8 Light Modes
It's ideal for commuters looking to make their daily trips safer.
Helmet-mounted lights are another great back-up option as they're more visible than seat post lights. RAZ is also compatible with helmets: it can be mounted higher than an under-seat light for improved visibility in the heavy traffic.
Raz Pro is a Team Player
Raz Pro comes with an innovative auto group-sync feature that will instantly set all the Raz Pro lights in your group to the same flashing pattern adding an extra safety layer to your team ride. As Group-Sync kicks in automatically*, you get to set off on your cycling journey right away without spending time on complicated setups. You will be able to customize the feature as well choosing one of the two team-sync options: join freely or use team code.
*in order for the light pattern to sync, your Raz Pros need to be set to the same mode.
Perfect for team rides
Fully visible day and night
Auto Brake Alerts
- Multiangle detection
- Hypersensitive detection
The most advanced brake sensor technology
The Raz Pro adopts the highest accuracy 6-axis motion-based position detection technology, which makes it different from most brake tail light on the market. This means you can mount the Raz Pro at different angles — and it would be the perfect fit even for an inclined frame.
More accurate with enhanced algorithm
Raz pro is set up with different braking algorithm under different riding occasions. Thus enhances the brake sensitivity and reduces the brake misjudge.
And that's not all
Raz Pro is not just a tail light: it’s packed with intelligent sensors and back-up features for a truly comfortable ride: Light Sensor, Auto Brake Alerts, Road Bump Alerts and Auto Wake-Up.
Raz Pro knows when it's dark and knows when it's bright. It will automatically turn on and off depending on the outside conditions letting you focus on the road ahead. If you are not using your bike for over 4 minutes, the light will turn off automatically to save battery.
Raz Pro is ready when you are. Simply hop on the bike and start moving and the light will turn on automatically — no buttons to press or settings to tweak with.
Road Bump Alerts
Raz Pro is an explorer. Heading off the main road? No worries, Raz got your back. The Road Bump Alert feature will make the light turn white every time you encounter a bump in the road warning the cyclists behind you.
Sync with Discovery Pro GPS Unit
Simply pair the Discovery Pro bike computer with Raz Pro via Bluetooth and the Discovery Pro's warning light will instantly sync with the Raz Pro and adopt the same color and lighting mode.
Full-Color Daytime Light
Raz is versatile. You can pick and choose between a full range of color options for the light via the Shanren Sports App. Here, you can also adjust the flashing modes and select preferred patterns.
80 hours on a single charge
Raz Pro can be easily charged with its handy magnetic charger and won't need to be recharged for another 80 hours of standard use — which is plenty for both daily commute and long relaxing bike rides.
Installation & Mounts
Raz Pro comes with a Twist & Lock mount and optional brackets for seat posts, saddles or helmets. You will be able to fix the tail light in place in no time and it will stay securely in its place even throughout the bounciest of rides.
It took us over 3 years to develop, engineer and design Raz Pro. We have taken the time to bring the product to life subjecting it to rounds of rigorous testing and gathering feedback from prototypes to make further improvements. The manufacturing of every single Raz requires 60 seconds of laser etching, extensive waterproofing (IP68) and extensive performance and endurance tests. As a result, you are getting a bike light that will be a reliable companion for all your bike trips, no matter the weather or terrain.

Back this project today!
Our story began in 2012 as three young professionals from the fields of electronics, products development and the internet started a company named SHANREN. The name of our company reflects one of our key principles: people living in harmony with nature — and, as a tech company, we incorporate this principle into the design and functionality of our products: innovative high level fitness and health tracking devices for cycling enthusiasts.
Over the 7 years on the cycling market, we have reengineered our company time and time again to keep up with the growing demands of the cycling industry and opening new avenues for innovation. Our breakthroughs in heart rate analysis and motion algorithm have helped thousands of cyclists worldwide and we hold several patents in this and the related fields.
- Jan 2019: We launched the Di-pro GPS bike computer on Indiegogo.
- May 2019: We brought the Beat 20 ECG heart rate monitor to Kickstarter.
- 2016: We received a 1.5-million-dollar Pre-A round investment.
Yet, throughout our journey, our core values have remained the same. We are still a young team of cycling enthusiasts working hard to make your next bike trip even better. We meet you where you are and get you where you need to go, and along the way, we are committed to innovation, quality and great cycling experiences.
"I have a good number of bike lights, but the Raz Pro just seriously upped the game. Ease of use and performance features are top notch and that’s before some game-changing tech. On specs alone, I would have guessed a much higher retail cost, so it’s amazing to see it priced at $39.99 and even less if you get in on their Kickstarter now which still has a few weeks to go."

Risks and challenges
Since the first mass-produced product, the Shanren team has developed more than 10 products from when we began in 2012. The tooling of Raz pro has already been completed, so we are confident that we can deliver this product to our backers as planned.
If some unexpected challenges or problems arise that might affect the delivery date, we will communicate that without any delay and be completely transparent with our supporters.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
