It’s getting colder by the week, it’s dark nearly all of the time and the winter is just around the corner. But for us here at Bikemagic we rub our hands in delight at the thought of that combination, as it means the night riding season is about to begin.
There’s no great thrill than rushing down your local singletrack in the pitch black, your way illuminated by the lights on your handlebar. If you’re thinking about investing in a new set of lights right now, you’re in luck, there’s a huge choice of incredibly bright lights.
From the cheapest to the most expensive, you now get more brightness and less bulk than ever before, night riding it seems has never enjoyed such serious lighting power. But where to start?
To help guide you though the choices, we’ve picked out six of our favourite high-power lights, to give you an idea of what is available. Prices range from £200 to £600 in this ’6 of the best…’
If you’re confused by some of the jargon with these hi-tech lights, be sure to take a read of our buyer’s guide to lights article first.
