Research shows that cycling with a flashing, daylight-visible rear light is the single most effective measure a cyclist can take to increase their likelihood of standing out to drivers.* Daytime Running Lights are designed with a specific flash, focus and range to make them more visible during daylight hours.
Top Sellers What are Lumens?
Sometimes you might hear our team speak about is lumens. Lumens (sometimes written as lm) are a way of measuring a light's output (strength); in other words: how bright it is. Typically, rear lights are usually between
5 and 100 lumens, whereas a front light can be anything from 1 0 up to thousands of lumens.
We have included the following graphic below which is a good guide on what lights will work best for the type of cycling you are doing. Make sure you check the strength of the light you where considering based on the suggestions below.
Have extra lights is never a bad thing, wearable lights are also a good addition that can easily clip on to the back of a jacket or jersey is always a good option. Cateye provide a great option that can be easily attached to your clothing or helmet. This light can be seen below and we have provided shopping links to this item.
