As the days continue to get shorter it’s time to start thinking about what lights you will need to suit your early morning rides and even those commutes home after work.
There are so many options that it can get confusing which will suit you best. Generally, the higher the lumen, the brighter the light and the higher the price. The question you need to ask yourself is how much riding do you do in the dark?
If your rides start early and your out in the dark for a large portion of your time in the saddle, then get yourself a high quality front light with at least 600 lumen and a rear light that has 180 degree sight. Don’t skimp on quality, safety should always come first.
However, if you’re like me and only have the start of your ride in the dark, then the 70 lumen Knog Blinder (https://www.pushys.com.au/knog-blinder-road-r70-rear-light-black.html) rear light and lightweight 80 lumen Knog Blinder (https://www.pushys.com.au/knog-blinder-mob-the-face-80lm-front-light-black.html) front lights are an excellent combination. They fit perfectly on aero seat posts and are easily transferred between bikes with their flexible rubber holders.
Don’t let the dark deter your motivation for riding. Get lit this winter and be safe and seen out on the road.
