Supernova Taster

Horn- & High beam switches

Award   GOLD WINNER 2016
Category   Bike Components
Company   Supernova Design GmbH & Co. KG

The Supernova high beam switches are perfectly integrated into the clamps of a brake lever and create a clean cockpit, avoiding the installation of additional clamps. The robust carbon composite material is UV resistant, impervious to corrosion and much lighter than aluminum. The switches are designed to withstand 500.000 use cycles and the housings are sealed against even the worst conditions in compliance with IP67 requirements. The waterproof connectors allow for a tool-free installation. The ergonomically positioned switches can be activated intuitively without letting go of the grips, so the rider stays in control of the bike and can focus his attention at the road ahead.
