Bicycle Lights That Brightens The Whole City

Bicycle lights that brightens the whole city! Just like a certified bicycle helmet, bicycle lights are essential for safety. Especially at night.

I’ve learned the hard way when it comes to bicycle lights. In the past I’ve tried everything. From the cheap ones that require the use of a screwdriver to attach them. To the ones that use batteries that can hardly throw more light than a candle.

Bicycle lights are usually one huge disappointment. I use to use folding bicycle lights that run by battery on my Brompton folding bike. These bicycle lights were super convenient because they’d fold out of the way when not in use. This made these lights super convenient when I had to fold my Brompton, because I didn’t have to remove the lights.

I was quite pleased with the bicycle lights on the Brompton until the front one suffered damage from leaky batteries. Not wanting to struggle cleaning the inner connections and handling battery acid, I threw the bicycle light out.

And while I was at it, I threw the rear light out that attached to the rear rack. This rear light also ran by batteries. Plus, to change the batteries I had to take the whole rear light apart in order to do so. To avoid all the hassles of buying expensive batteries, and wasting time changing them, I stuck with my expensive pair of rechargeable lights.

What I use is a set of rechargeable Bontrager lights that I bought at Bike Zone. Both these lights come with a cable that can be plugged into a computer USB. Or an old phone charger such as the one I use on the right.

The Cygolite Dart has multiple settings of lighting up to 350 lumens. While riding down the street, I can see the light on reflective signs such as stop signs, from two blocks away.

On the seatpost I use a Bontrager Flair R taillight. This rear light allows drivers to see me from over a mile away. @ridebontrager

Both these lights together offer a lot of safety on dark roads at night. The front Cygolite allows me to see what’s in front of me while allowing the drivers to notice me from the front and sides. On back, the Bontrager Flair R make me very noticeable with it’s bright red glow. And an extra benefit is that I can remove these lights without the use of tools. This makes it easy to use them on both my Tern Link D8 and Brompton without purchasing extra lights. Plus, I’d rather own one set of exceptional lights than a bunch of cheap ones. @ridebontrager
