Sick of stolen bike lights?

"Finally, never worry about having your bike lights stolen again now the days are darker in Melbourne this winter 2020."

Sick of stolen bike lights?

RMIT Activator and JT Touring Logos


From: Daniel Stojanovski

Melbourne, Australia.

Let me know if this is you...

You live in Melbourne and you ride your push bike absolutely everywhere!

You zoom along the cycleways to work during the week. You cruise around the city with friends on the weekend BUT being called a “commuter” does NOT do YOU justice. 

Riding your bike gives you freedom and...

you are 100% positive that the world would be a better place if everyone rode a bike.

You're annoyed though…

You locked your bike in the city and some punk stole your front and rear lights! 

You ended up riding home in the dark. The police told you off, but luckily, this time, you made it home safe.

What if…

you never had to worry about having your bike lights stolen again?

You, the Urban Explorer (bunc head). About your daily life in Melbourne.

You see, I had the same problem...

How it all began...

I am an ‘ex-fall asleeper’ on the bus

When I moved to Melbourne, I decided that public transport would be the easiest way to get to work. 

When I would be leaving work on the bus, I would be feeling so tired that I would fall asleep. I was sick of it and knew there had to be a better way of living.

My cyclist friends at work asked me:

“Why don’t you try riding to work?”.

I gave it a go and riding to and from work became the best part of my day! 

Riding gave me a little ‘win’

When I got to my desk in the morning, I was happy that I had already got some exercise in for the day. 

I rode everywhere when I realised how great it was to get around by bike!

However, I had a problem...

Annoyed by bulky bike lights

I hated having to carry the bulky lights around after I locked up my bike. 

Not only that… 

My lights were stolen

When I left them on, punks would steal them and I’d have to ride home in the dark. 

One evening, I was riding home and...

All of a sudden... 

I was smashed off my bike!  

Luckily, I had only fractured my little finger. Yes, I am now ok... 

Broken finger

...thanks for asking. ;)

That’s when I realised that...

Riding my bike was the most dangerous thing I do.

I had to stop my bike lights from being stolen.

There had to be a solution

With millions of cyclists in the world, there HAD to be something out there for city riders like me.

The best solution I found still had an issue. It used a special bolt (Torx) to attach to the bike.

This meant everytime you charged the lights, you needed the tool to remove them. 

To still have a functional light, the lights HAD to be easily removed from the bike.


All bike lights were bulky and annoying to carry

This meant a light had to be DESIGNED to be carried in your pocket.

That’s what I had to do... 

Design a light that fits in your pocket.

I set out to create the first bike light that NO ONE could steal...

It could be carried for HOURS without noticing.

With NO compromise to safety. 

I was inspired by everything pocketable…

Brainstorming at desk

Brain dumping ideas through the concept ideation phase.

How to stop bike lights from being stolen?


1. Lights get stolen if left on your bike.

2. To keep them safe you must remove them.

3. Lights are annoying to carry.

1. Never ride in darkness

1.1. Fits in your pocket

You will never have to worry about having your bike lights stolen again. You can carry them for hours without noticing. 

You are able to ride wherever you want and have the peace of mind knowing that your lights are safe in your pocket.

1.2. Easily removed

You will be less annoyed when you park your bike in public. You will be able to quickly pack up and down your bike. Quickly prepare for your outing away from you bike

The lights slide off from the strap easily and quickly. The silicone handlebar mounts stay on the bike so you only carry the expensive part.

1.3. Never return to flat lights

Do you ever forget to turn your lights off and then come back to find out that they are flat? 

After two minutes of no movement, bunc lights turn off. Once you move them again they turn on.1 

Never return to your bike again and find out your lights are flat!

2. You will 'be seen'

2.1. Wide beam

The LED array projects a beam with a visible angle over 220° meaning you can be seen from all around the bike.

2.2. Built-in reflector

Ever forgotten to charge your lights? The built-in reflector is a backup.

3. You can do more

3.1. Minimalist

Own less stuff. Go from bike to skateboard to running and use the same light. 

The clip that mounts to your bike can be attached to your shirt.

3.2. Waterproof IPX6

Ride through any storm. With an ‘IPX6’ waterproof rating, bunc lights can handle getting blasted with a Super Soaker that is hooked up to a compressor.

"So I just biked here into the city and I’m meeting my friend for dinner and I’ve got my bunc lights. They’re just going to go nicely into my pocket and not get in the way! - Alex C.


Survived bikepacking across the world

Our friends John and Teagan from JTTouring cycled from Malaysia to England. They survived and so did our lights!

Here is what John said: 

“bunc supported me and my partner on our cycle touring trip from Malaysia to England. 

These lights really got tested with us along the road and they withstood the hardest roads/climates bicycle lights will ever go through. 

Pretty amazing for 'city' style lights. The ability to remove them from your handle bars easily was incredibly useful on our trip since we had to regularly stop and lock the bicycles to go into the shops, see sights or at night in a wild camping spot. 

This meant we never lost or got our lights stolen! An easy simple design. We recommend these lights to anyone.”
