This is such good value for a 2 watt front and a 1/2 watt rear so I bought two sets. I can see very clearly on unlit canal tow-paths and I simply adjust the two powerful beams either side by side or one near and one further depending on the conditions. In the daytime the two front lights flashing make crossing some very scary 40mph zone London roundabouts much safer. They make me much more visible. Battery life is also very good, using cheap alkaline batteries from the pound shop.
Exactly what I was after, good quality, high powered lights with excellent fittings at a very reasonable price (bought for £21)
The front bracket has a pan adjustment on it, allowing you to move the beam 5 degrees to the left or right. The quality of the LEDs are amazing! I live in an area with very little street lighting and the front light gives a great beam and wash over the road so I can easily see whether there are any pot holes / sticks etc coming up :)
I ride to work on the road everyday 13m total. Searching through internet for few days and came up to smart 35 lux set. I bought this and it really does what it says on pack. Brilliant focus front and read.
Cons: Not too fuss about, Light came with holding clip and it lock the light into hook but after clamping holding clip on steering bar, it could not clamp into hook due to slight tighter clamp force. I managed to fix it by bit of DIY but no complaint for its focus, quality and construction.
Whether you're commuting through towns or cities, taking on a night time mountain bike ride or touring on a long distance road trek, having a reliable set of lights is crucial – and a legal requirement in many countries.
There's a great range of lights for all purposes and at all budgets, which can be broadly separated into models that'll help you BE SEEN (commuting, road riding, touring etc on relatively well-lit roads), and models that will help you SEE (mountain biking at night, lighting your way on unlit roads etc).
Front lights generally have handlebar attachments and rear lights attach to your seatpost, but there's also the option to fix lights to your helmet using helmet-specific mounts, and to a backpack or even your clothing.
There's a huge range of lights that'll help you be seen, and you don't have to break the bank to get a decent front and rear lightset. We'd advise you to get the best you can afford: after all, the more visible you can make yourself on the roads, the safer you'll be.
When you're looking for the right lights for you, check to see whether they offer good side-on visibility so that other vehicles and pedestrians can see you at junctions, for example. Also consider lights which offer a number of modes – some flash, some are constant. There's no limit to how many lights you can have, so you may want to have one light on flash and one on constant to make yourself that little bit more noticeable.
If you're commuting on unlit country roads, mountain biking in the dark or you want something more powerful than a general purpose bike light then we have something for you with our high-end performance front lights.
Bike light technology has advanced so rapidly in the past few years that you can now buy lightweight LED units with long running times which pack a huge punch. Yes, you'll pay a little bit more than your average front light, but the results are night and day (literally).
Many of these high powered units are lightweight enough to helmet mount – perfect for picking out trail obstacles when you're riding off-road at warp speed, but they're also just as useful on-road for pinpointing potholes and other road obstacles too.
Beam patterns on these lights vary – some with a wide spread; others with a more focussed beam. You may want to use a mixture of the two, or choose the one which suits your riding the best.
