You wait ages for a 'dynamo'-powered flashing pedal, and then two come along at once

The Power Pedal from Tomax of Ireland generates its own power when in motion, lighting up three small orange LEDs. The patent-pending Pedalite pedal from Pedalite Ltd of Surrey, England, stores energy in a similar fashion and powers white, amber and red LEDs. The Pedalite pedal was premiered at Interbike.

Pedalite uses an energy storage capacitor rather than any form of chemical battery.

"Pedalite is the only non battery-dependent bicycle pedal light with integral energy storage," says the Pedalite website.

Not quite, the Power Pedal from the inventors of the Turbospoke engine-noise maker, is also a 'fit and forget', energy-storing LED product.

However, of the two, it's the Pedalite that offers the most features.

With its three, differently-coloured LEDs it offers a "unique light signature and 360° conspicuity," said Kevin Witheford, one of the directors of Pedalite Ltd., a company based in Kingston upon Thames.

"The capacitor provides residual energy enabling the pedal to flash when the cyclist freewheels or stops."
