One main questions when choosing a set of lights is if they are for you to see when it’s dark or if they’re for you to be seen by other road users. Lights to see with are more powerful and are designed to illuminate your way on unlit roads and trails. Lights to be seen with, are generally less powerful and less expensive. They are designed for use on lit roads and are intended to help other road users to see you.
Bike lights are massively important to ensure the safety of the bike rider but is there a huge difference between sets that are available out there? Should we be using certain lights for certain types of riding? The simple answer is yes and Jon talks you through what might be a good option for a range of cycling. A good set of lights are really important to increase your visibility or to even illuminate the dark road ahead.
We hope you managed to learn something new about bike lights from this video. Do you use lights when you ride? Let us know in the comments. 👇
