Following the success of the ICON light, which had huge success on Kickstarter, the team at See.Sense is back with two new lights that promise even better performance.

First up is the BEAM front light, which promises intelligent lighting in a small package. It automatically gets brighter when you cycle into darker areas and even reacts to car headlights, too. BEAM will retail for $126 following the latest Kickstarter campaign.

Next are the ICON2 lights, available in front and back versions. New and improved LEDs will make you visible from as far as 3 kilometers away, while the in-built sensor makes the lights flash automatically at junctions and roundabouts.

It also adjusts brightness to conserve battery depending on light conditions, and is rechargeable via micro USB. The ICON2 light set will cost $175 retail, and you can combine it with a BEAM light for even greater visibility.

Staying safe on the road should be a priority for every cyclist, and these lights are bright enough to handle even the darkest conditions. They are more expensive than many models on the market, but it’s worth the investment if it means you’ll make it home safe and sound.

Ristorante Consorzio, Turin, Italy

Ristorante Consorzio is almost as famous for its selection of fine cheeses as its delicious wines. After one evening dining here I understand why. The selections of both are extensive and top-notch, and feature a variety of each from around the country.

Work and Play in Italy

ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.
