Who are beryl?

We are beryl and we create innovation for urban cycling. Our flagship product, the Laserlight, is a front bike light with a laser projecting a bike symbol onto the road ahead of the rider. It enables cyclists to be seen in the notorious ‘blind spot’ and keeps you safe on the road. We started on Kickstarter and now ship to over 60 countries. More recently we have integrated our lights into Citi Bike in New York and all of the Santander Cycles in London, all of whom recognise us as the key to providing safe and smart urban cycling now, and in the future.

beryl is a team of 25 based in Shoreditch, London. We care about each other, have our own office with our own workshop, and thrive on collaboration. We are all passionate about cities and urban cycling. Over the next year we are looking to expand our team dramatically in order to keep up with all our exciting developments.
