“Bookman creates inspiring visibility products with an aesthetic edge for cyclists, runners and pedestrians that need to see and be seen. With heavy focus on the details, quality and safety, the design has one goal: to make everyone visible in traffic and prevent accidents.” – Bookman Visibility Website

“Based in Stockholm, Sweden, Bookman draws on the heritage of Swedish safety-conscious brands but also finds inspiration in the traditions of minimalistic, functional Scandinavian design and innovative technology. And, coming from the land of polar nights, with 24 hours of darkness, each product must live up to the highest standards.”

Bookman Volume 1500

“Targeted towards the most demanding cyclists, the Eurobike Award winning Volume™ 1500 sets a new standard for high performance bike lights. With 1500 lumens and the efficient beam pattern this light is amazingly powerful. It has a high capacity battery (4000 mAh) and the possibility to bring extra batteries for the ride, perfect for long gravel rides. With the Power wheel (patent pending) the light is a dream to operate, also with gloves.”
