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.
