Knog Lights: Buyers Guide Review & Tips

The stylish and practical light brand for urban riders.

Knog are the brand to go to for urban cyclists who don’t want to fork a load out on their commuter lights. Their well designed products have colourful, eye-catching and practical designs that are simple yet highly effective.

What is so ideal about their lights is that they’re all compact in size and aren’t bulky or heavy, so they’re perfect for stashing in your bag when not in use. Knog lights are functional for cyclists, with each light featuring a stretchy wrap around piece of material which replaces the standard bike mount.

Unlike a lot of lights in the market that can be more complicated than they should be, the Knog lights are so simplistic. Designed to be exposed to the elements, their lights within the whole range are either all 100% waterproof or are water resistant enough to survive any wet and dreary commute.

With varied price points across their entire collection, they’re all widely available to buy online and in stores across the globe. There’s a light with the right price to suit cyclists of all abilities.

Blinder 4 Twinpack
