Jan. 25, 2021


As we all know, StVZO is necessary in German markt,but what it really about?

StVZO (Straßenverkehrs-Zulassungs-Ordnung) is German Regulations, authorizing the Use of Vehicles for Road Traffic. Normally we call it K-MARK, since there have a K number on the light which is the simplest way to determine if this light is legal or not, if you use the light without K-MARK on the road and you may be fined


What’s difference between the bike light come with or without StVZO?

Visually recognizable, first of all, checking is there a K number engraved on the light or not, secondly we would judge it if the light beam blind the oncoming people or not, the StVZO regulation strictly required the cut-off light beam which avoid dazzling oncoming road users, otherwise it will be nightmare if the lighting without the optical anti-glare design, thirdly we could check of the shape beam, if the StVZO bike light, the shape on the road will like the rectangular that’s thanks to the strict light distribution, but if it as like the torchlight, there no doubt that this is illegal


Function recognition, as for preventing and reducing the traffic accidents, the StVZO bike light without the flashing function or SOS function, moreover if the bike light powered by AAA batteries, the low power indicator is required, and the indicator should not display the low power after 1 hour on-light checking


Laboratory detection, the light distribution as uniformly as possible. At least 10lx in the central light (HV) and the maximum illuminance (Emax) shall not exceed 1.2 times of HV, that Prevents the single-point beams from becoming too concentrated.
