Introducing the Knog Blinder 1. The reigning champions of cute bike lights that also perform, Knog have a selection of USB rechargeable lights with a huge range of colours and styles. Whether you like pink flowers or are more about red stripes or silver skulls, there’s a light to suit you and your bike.
A 2-hour battery life on the constant mode should be enough to get most commuters home, and up to 11 hours on the eco flash mode – so expect somewhere in between depending on personal preference and environment. You might want to run it a bit brighter.
These lights also attach with a stretchy rubber catch, so they are easy to take off the bike when you arrive at your destination. Don’t leave them on, as there’s a very high chance they’ll go walkies.
Available from: Evans Cycles, Chain Reaction Cycles, and lots of independent bike shops
Suitable for: Urban riders/commuters, on generally well-lit roads. These are for being seen, not for lighting up dark roads.
