How It Works
The patented Lunasee Active Side Lighting system uses our specially formulated LERtape (Light Emitting Rim) that’s applied directly to your wheel’s rim. It’s weightless and nearly invisible in daylight.
As the wheels rotate, the LERtape is constantly excited by four discrete high intensity LEDpods mounted on the frame or forks of your motorcycle and targeted at the LERtape. The glowing LERtape creates the visible and striking rings of light without any wires or lights actually on or in your wheels.
Please note that Lunasee’s LERtape and LEDpods are not ordinary components. Our fast reacting LERtape and high powered LEDpods have been specifically designed and engineered to work together to maximize brightness and performance. Lunasee maintains several patents on this system.
Simple concept. Cutting edge components. Remarkable effect.
The 3 primary components that create the Lunasee ASL 1000 system:
- Controller. The 0.4 amp Controller is connected to the battery or to accessory power wire and manages and distributes power to the 4 high intensity LEDpods. The Controller can be tucked away in a location of your choice (like under the seat).
- LEDpods. The 4 high intensity 1 watt LEDpods are strategically mounted on the motorcycle to direct their beam on the LERtape (1 on each side of the wheels). The LEDpods are 15X the power output of LED’s commonly used for accent lighting, and have been specially designed to maximize excitation of the LERtape. These small LEDpods are also generally mounted to be hidden behind the forks, frame or fenders.
- LERtape. Lunasee’s specially formulated LERtape is applied to the rim just like any other wheel pin striping (pressure sensitive automotive grade adhesive). But unlike other wheel pin striping, Lunasee’s LERtape has exceptional photoluminscent properties and is constantly being charged by the LEDpods – creating the visible and distinct rings of light.
