Lights

Close

Choosing the right bicycle lights can be confusing. How bright do I need? Are the lights rechargeable? Do they have different flash modes? How do they mount, how long do they last between charges?

Our range consists of Knog bike lights, Giant, MagicShine, Azur and Leyne.

Even though most riders purchase lights for Autumn and Winter for low light conditions, we’d recommend using them during daytime hours for when conditions are overcast.

If you scroll to the bottom of the page, you’ll find more information about our range of bike lights.

FRONT BIKE LIGHTS

Do you need bike lights to see while riding unlit roads, paths and off-road trails, or to be seen in urban and high traffic environments, or maybe both?

I want to be seen.

Well lit urban environments may not require a super bright bike light. So you may just want a bike light that allows you to be seen by others rather than to light up the path in front of you. Any light under 500 Lumens will be just fine.

Here are some great options that represent the best value in our range:


I want to see

You’ll need at least 500 Lumens, but more is better.

The stronger the beam, the faster you can ride in the darkest conditions because you’ll be able to see further and anticipate hazards.

LEDs for these bike lights tend to be more sophisticated too. The light beam not only allows you to see further ahead, the light illuminates more of the path to either side of you as well. Plus you get longer run times.

Giant delivers on the tech here with their new Recon HL (headlight) range. The range starts off at the Recon HL 800.

Recon HL lights also have an ambient light sensor. So they’ll automatically set the right output based on your current riding conditions. This means, when it’s daytime the front lights will flash and at night, they’ll switch to a steady beam.

We also recommend an amazing model from Lezyne, the Micro Drive Pro 800XL. It has astonishing output & adjustability, so can be used for commuting as well as off-road.

For harder riding, off-road & unlit trails, you will require some serious power. The next bicycle light is 3500 Lumens and it’s the MagicShine Monteeer 3500.

REAR BIKE LIGHTS

A proven safety item, a strong flashing rear light is a must-have product to keep you safe for both daytime and low light/night conditions.

If you’re only going to have 1 light on your bike, then it’s got to be the rear light. Traffic coming up behind you is going to actually see you.

Torch’s new Speedlight Flash is easy to attach to seat posts. Its compact shape doesn’t take up a lot of room, it’s bright and it’s on special.

Next, there’s the Azur Pro 60 Lumen rear bike light. Like the Torch above, it’s USB rechargeable and at 60lm it’s better than average. It also has a 240-degree visibility range, so it’s not just traffic behind you that will see but also to the side of you.

Giant’s new Recon TL 100 is another excellent choice. It’s 100 Lumens and like the Torch above has a super compact profile. An LED around the power button tells you instantly how much charge is left too.

If you’re riding in traffic, the MagicShine SeeMee 300 Lumen bike light activates when you use your brakes. Fantastic safety feature at a great price!
