Cycling Lights & Reflectives


Do you want to know more about bicycle lights and reflectives?

Bike lights are fundamental for being able to see or being seen in the dark, whether cycling for leisure or commuting. Thanks to these lights you can avoid accidents simply by being seen by other drivers or by avoiding falls when you do not see the terrain you are riding on.

There are two types of bike lights:

- Front lights which allow you to see the ground you are riding on and also make drivers coming in the opposite direction see where the cyclist is. These lights are clear and white, to offer a wide field of vision, in order to prevent the bike wheels from entering holes or colliding with obstacles.

- Rear lights are just a red light that lets you be detected by others who are travelling in the same direction. These red lights have different settings to attract attention; fixed, intermittent or alternating light. As well as allowing cyclists to be seen from behind, the rear lights can also be seen from the sides, in case someone approaches from your right or left.

Both the front lights and rear lights can be installed very easily on the handlebars or saddle of the bicycle respectively.

Lezyne as always reliable quality. Haven’t used it on the trails yet but confident it will do the job. More than enough modes and features some of which will be updated in future download (via bluetooth).

Garmin Varia RTL515 Rear Light and Radar

Garmin seems to be the only ones with a radar solution for cyclists. It works quite well although it can in cities take cyclists or even pedestrians as cars.

CatEye AMPP 500 Headlight
Good visibility, good quality, good battery
Used this a few times now. Great for being seen in flash mode on long autumn rides. Perfectly good enough in dark urban roads. The build quality is good and the battery appears to be decent.

Garmin Varia RTL515 Rear Light and Radar
Enhanced safety on the bike
The unit itself is great and does exactly what the garmin videos say it does. I would have given a full star rating but I had to buy an adapter to more securely fix to bike with more than the just the thin rubber band attachment.
