Cyclists need good bike lights not only to help them find their way, but also to help others see them.
We strongly advise buying good quality bike lights. You will see lights for anything from a couple of quid, but we do suggest you spend a little more. Saying that the small cheap lights can act as great additional lights for your helmet and backpack etc. A relatively standard bike light will set you back around £30.
Here are ten top quality lights that more than meet their affordable price tags.
A compact but powerful light, the Cateye HL-EL620RC Nano Shot Front Light attaches to the front of your bike, or for an extra £10 it can be mounted to your helmet.
OptiCube technology creates a powerful wide beam strong enough for riding along weakly lit roads safely. It charges via a USB so you can cycle to work with it and charge it at your desk ready for the ride home, hassle free.
However be warned, this bike light doesn't deal well with bumpy surfaces so if you live down a pot-holed street this probably isn't the one for you. It's a bargain price for its brightness though.
Attach the Lezyne Macro Drive Front Light 350L to your handlebars or your helmet for great night time vision. The Macro is both compact and powerful - the perfect combination. It is charged using a USB port.
Extremely affordable, the Moon Gem 2.0 LED Rechargeable Front Light has a quick release bracket so it is easily transportable and its compact size allows you to carry it in your pocket or bag easily.
It charges using a USB port and features four different constant and flashing modes. The Moon Gem comes in a choice of black or silver to suit your tastes.
A red light comes on to warn you when you only have an hour of battery life left so that you will never be caught out.
An ideal choice for those who just need a light to make them more visible, the Knog Frog Strobe LED Front Light is our cheapest and most colourful find.
With a choice of twelve colours (and some limited edition ones) there's sure to be one that coordinates perfectly with your bike. Knog Frogs are water resistant and have up to 50 hours of battery life.
It has five light modes, holds its charge well and stays put on your handlebars.
Offering 180 degrees of visibility, this light is perfect for being seen in the city.
The quick release bracket is practical for switching the light between helmet and handlebars and it is USB rechargeable too.
