Top Quality Bike Lights
Nowadays, bicycles are no longer just used as a transportation option. More and more people have been cycling for recreational purposes. Some even compete with fellow professional cyclists. However, it’s no secret that like other physical activities, there are some risks involved when you go cycling. That’s why it’s important to use proper safety gears and accessories such as bike lights.
Role of bike lights in a cyclist’s safety
Bicycle lights come extra handy when you ride at night. It will help increase your visibility while passing through dimly-lit roads or terrain. This way, you can signal pedestrians, motorists and fellow cyclists to avoid collisions.
If you frequently go cycling at night, we highly recommend fitting more than one bike light on your ride. At Mr Cycling World, we offer bike lights set and individual pieces of front and rear lights. We also offer spare parts for bicycle lights.
What type of bicycle light is the best?
When shopping for front bicycle lights, choose one that has around 80 to 100 lumens. If you tend to ride fast, choose lights with more than 400 lumens. As for the rear, you can go for lights with at least 20 lumens. You may opt for lights with higher lumens if you frequently ride along dark trails or dimly-lit lanes.
If you're not sure which type of lights you should get, here are some key factors you should look consider:
- Type of bulb used - Nowadays, bicycle lights are equipped with LED bulbs. This type of bulb is highly preferred in the industry because they can last for a long time.
- Lumens - In the cycling industry, lumens denotes the estimated brightness of the bulb. This is a crucial factor you need to consider especially if you like cycling on trails during the evenings.
- Quality of the material - Check the quality of the straps and frames. These should be water-resistant, especially if you love cycling under all kinds of weather conditions.
You should also consider buying lights set, especially if you want to save money. At Mr Cycling World, we offer Positz Front and Rear bicycle lights. These are USB rechargeable, and they can last up to 6 hours.
Alternatively, you can shop individual lights for your bike’s front and rear side. We also offer these here at Mr Cycling World for an affordable price.
How do you install cycling lights?
Most LED bulbs for bicycles usually come with adjustable straps, allowing you to install them anywhere you want. For example, our front and rear LED lights come with easy to install straps. These are made from silicone, so they can withstand regular wear and tear.
When you install cycling lights, make sure that there is enough distance between them. This will help increase your visibility both with tall and low vehicles.
