Now the clocks have changed riding in the dark is unavoidable, so you’ve got to equip yourself with some decent lights to make sure you’re highly visible to other road users when you’re riding to the office/trails/college/pub.
This cool new little light from Knog makes it easy to fix in place no matter what you’re wearing. It’s novel design gives you two mounting options – an integrated clip to fix to a bags light loop or a small curved clip attached with four very strong magnets. Whack it on your jacket, t-shirt, rucksack, anywhere that takes your fancy, you’re not restricted like other lights, and hey presto you’re lit up like a Christmas tree.
Inside the stylish plastic designed housing is a high powered red LED rated to 20 Lumens. The batteries provide well over 12 hours burn time on constant but on flash, the mode we recommend using, that figure will rise to 36 hours. It’s available in six colours and costs £20.44.
