Already have an ACE light? Or are you thinking of getting one? With our new spare mounting kits now available this means you can easily switch your lights between different bikes and positions.
We know everyone has different preferences of where they like to mount their lights on their bike - so that's why we made ACE as versatile as possible. We thought it would be helpful to show you all of your options together here in one blog post:
This is what most people opt for to mount their rear light to their bike. This bike has a nice amount of space on the seat post so it works quite well. It's super easy to attach - not one tool or Allen key needed. There are three angles you can position your light at. We have used the top angle here - we find this is the best angle for this type of mounting and it keeps the light shining parallel with the road.
Of course, you'll need to remove your lights for charging and cleaning. The light can be easily 'clipped out' of its mount without you having to remove the mount itself. Just make sure the USB cover is fully sealed after charging.
If your seatpost is much lower down than it is on this bike, or if you use a saddle bag that's in the way of the light - then you can actually mount the light lower down (below the seatpost). Don't be afraid to change the orientation of your ACE light to horizontal (or even upside down!) if you need to. See.Sense lights learn their orientation and work the same way as they would when upright.
Something a little bit different here. This would be a good solution if you have little or no room at all in the seatpost area. You just need to use one of the shorter o-rings (which is provided in the box), depending on the size of your seat-stays. This would be a nice option if you wanted to double up on your lights too, providing you with some extra visibility.
This is probably the most popular front light mounting option. If you have aero bars then our aero adapter (included) will fit nicely onto your bike the same way as this, you might just need to use a slightly longer strap.
The vertical option of the above, it does give you some more space on your bars, but is mainly a prefence thing.
This bike has a decent amount of handlebar space, but we understand that lots of you have multiple headsets and gadgets on your bars (meaning you have little space left for your lights). So, using the longer straps provided for your ACE, mounting down on the headtube is a nice solution to make sure you are still seen from the front. You can still see the branding on this bike which is an added bonus too!
A bit of an alternative one... Just make sure there is enough clearance for your spokes. A good tip is to have the light clip facing to the outside of the bike. This type of mounting would also work very well on a gravel/cross/mountain/hybrid bike.
All See.Sense ACE lights come with aero mounts (both front & rear) for your aero or TT bikes. These can also be used in other 'slimmer' parts of your bike too and can work well on panniers, forks and seat stays.
We were so excited to recently test out our new GoPro mounts. Available here. These were SO highly requested by our customers... so we made them! What do you think?
Check out this quick demonstration video of how to use the ACE 'clip' mounting system, showing how secure it is.
If you have a folding Brompton Bike? Our GoPro Mount is an ideal addition for mounting See.Sense ACE / ICON2 on the saddle rails of your Brompton bike, so you can still fold it up.
