KiLEY USB Rechargeable Bullet Light – Retro Design headlight

The ultimate beautiful bicycle headlight is born! USB rechargeable and bright. KiLEY takes your cycling life to the next level!

The KiLEY USB Rechargeable Bullet Light [LM-018] is the ultimate headlight that combines simplicity and beauty, with functionality and practicality.

It was developed to be used for a long time in a simple, vintage style that you will never get tired of.

Not only does it have a distinctive design, but it also has a maximum of 250 lumens that can be used for more than 8 continuous hours.

The USB rechargeable light is made of an aluminum alloy that has been hollowed out to make it durable and lightweight.


 Classic design but modern USB rechargeable 

The included magnetic USB cable provides for 3.5 hours of charging for more than 8 hours of continuous use, or up to 16 hours in the case of flashing. Until now, most bullet lights have been battery-powered, large, and heavy. This KiLEY USB Rechargeable Bullet Light [LM-018] has a classic design and is designed to be used in various situations. The new USB rechargeable system makes it compact and lightweight. It has been transformed into a practical light.
        The magnetic design makes it waterproof!



With a 4-mode design (High→Middle→Low→Flash), the light’s brightness is 250 lm from a practical standpoint. This is sufficient brightness for urban areas.

KiLEY’s role is to assist users in safe nighttime driving.


❸ Lightweight aluminum alloy

The material is made from a block of aluminum alloy, which is formed by CNC cutting. To reduce the weight, the inside of the body is hollowed out, resulting in an approximate 110g weight reduction.


❹ Easy to remove and attach

The battery can be easily removed. The battery can be detached from the body by spinning the front side. This makes it possible to remove and recharge the battery only when necessary, while the body remains fixed to the bike.


❺ a design derived from a cannonball and a horseshoe

The horseshoe is believed throughout the world to wish travelers safety on the road and as a lucky item for road safety. Weaving the horseshoe design into the design is also meant to wish cyclists safety during their rides.

While most bicycle lights claim to be “brighter and more compact,” bullet lights are unique. It has been several decades since cannonball lights were the standard bicycle light. Despite this, their nostalgic shape has attracted many people, including young people. 

The new design, a fusion of old and new, is not limited to classic bicycles, but can be used for everything from modern chromoly frames to cross bikes. The new “Bike” is a perfect match for many different types of vehicles.
        As the name “simple is best” suggests, the longer you use this product, the more you will love it.


In 2012, I was visiting Europe, not yet in the bicycle industry, and working as an interior designer.

In a town called Lindau, Germany, I suddenly found an antique store that caught my attention. There was a very old bicycle there with a very old simple light on it.
        I liked the design of the light so much that I told the owner, who was in his 80s, that I wanted to buy it from him, but he refused. The owner, who was in his 80s, refused to sell it to me because he said that the light was his grandfather’s treasure.
        However, I could not give up the light, so I visited the owner’s store for three days in a row.
        On the fourth day, I said, “I am a designer and want to design bicycles in the future. I need inspiration for that, and I really need this light to give me strength. I want to combine the simplicity and beauty of this light with modernity.”
        When I told him this, the owner finally sold it to me.

After that, I returned to Taiwan, combined with other products available in the market, and launched the first headlight “LM-001” in 2013.
        I revisited the antique shop in Lindau with the light I had made to report this to the store owner. When I arrived at the store, a young man opened the door.

I asked, “Where is the owner?”

He said “My grandfather passed away…”

I was and still am very sad, but I want to carry on the trust that his grandfather entrusted to me.
        I want to do something for the bicycle industry and carry on the concepts of my predecessors.


This is my own true story and I want to share it with you.


– Louis – Founder of KiLEY –


KiLEY is a Taiwanese brand of bicycle accessories, focusing on classic designed lights for autocycles since its establishment in 2013. We have been selling our products for many years, and have received a lot of positive feedback from our customers.

“Do you have a rechargeable Bullet Light?”

“I want a brighter Bullet Light.”

KiLEY has been developing the LM-001 since 2013, but since that time, rechargeable battery-powered lights have become the mainstream for autocycles. A few years ago, we decided to develop a rechargeable bullet light, and we have finally completed it.


By hollowing out a block of aluminum alloy, the product combines simplicity, visual beauty, and a sense of luxury, with no compromise made in any detail.

It is lightweight yet massive, feels great to the touch, and the more you use it, the more you will grow attached to it.

Charging Method

Only the light portion can be easily removed, so there is no need to remove the body each time when charging.
