Bend, OR (PRWEB) January 25, 2006
Thousands of skateboarders can now be seen at night thanks to a surprisingly small invention. The SunRiser skateboard headlight and tail-light are no larger than the standard 1/4" thick riser pad currently being used on skateboards, but project a powerful light from 3 LED lamps, 2 replaceable cell batteries, and an on/off switch.
Skateboarders have been finding out the hard way that most US cities require skateboards to meet the same lighting regulations as bicycles for night riding, a forward facing white light and rear facing red light.
SunRisers easily install on any current skateboard. Simply unbolt the trucks (axle) from the deck (board), slide a headlight or tail-light in place, and rebolt. The polycarbonate case can withstand enormous impact and is unobtrusive to skateboarding tricks.
SunRisers are available through the company website and local skateboard shops for $24.95 each, or a $49.95 set which includes a headlight, tail-light, and new hardware.
