This light is powered by a dynamo hub on the front wheel. If you don't have one of those, check out this economical wheel. The Lumotec Lyt BN Plus is a low cost LED headlight which uses the same optics as other B&M Lyt headlights but is not quite as bright (20 lux) The light has a nice sharp horizontal top edge, so you get very good illumination at a distance without blinding oncoming drivers and cyclists. The included mount works with most bikes having V brakes, disc brakes and even many caliper brakes.
This headlight follows Busch & Müller's normal naming conventions. The letter "N" in the name indicates that the light has a two position "On - Off" switch. "Plus" in the name indicated that the headlight includes a standlight. The standlight function keeps the headlight on for several minutes, providing light if you're stopped at a traffic light.
Unlike other Busch & Müller headlights made for use with hub dynamos, there are no wires permanently attached to the Lyt. On the underside of the headlight, you'll see two sets of connectors. One is for the wire to the hub dynamo, and the other set is for the wires to the taillight. A double strand wire comes with the headlight to attach it to the hub dynamo. (you will need a set of spade connectors if using a Schmidt SON hub- sold separately) Taillight wire is sold separately.
