How was built-in Light Seatpost Created?
The core idea is that LightSKIN has the LED circuit and batteries built into the seatpost, and several holes are crafted to let the light of the LED circuit come out of the seatpost. However, because the seatpost of a bicycle is a critical component that supports most of the weight of the bicycle user, it takes great caution in processing and assembling the seatpost. LightSKIN solved this difficult problem by the following three solutions:
- Touch-type LED mode control button
- Unique internal circuit fixture structure
- Batteries separated from the circuit
1. Internal circuit fixture structure LightSKIN employed a unique technique to firmly fix the LED circuit in the interiors of seatposts that have a variety of thickness and cross-sectional shapes, and to achieve desirable waterproof performance. This technique fixes the circuit by using the force of pushing the circuit in the seatpost with screws spinning in the reverse direction.
2. Touch-type LED mode control button LightSKIN integrates the LED lenses and control buttons into one assembly. This technique gives the same feeling as touch buttons of cutting-edge IT devices. Through this technique, LightSKIN is able to dramatically enhance the strength, processing time, and efficiency in assembly by minimizing the number of holes to be crafted on the seatpost.
3. Batteries separated from the circuit The seatposts of bicycles can have various lengths. However, LightSKIN is not affected by the length of the seatpost because the LED circuit and the battery part are connected by wires. Furthermore, because it uses AA batteries, which is rarely the case with other bicycle tail lights, the performance is outstanding.
