Night time mountain biking can seem a bit intimidating until you get used to it – and without the right lights it’s definitely pretty scary. With a good beam, however, you can illuminate the trail and discover a whole new riding experience.
Night riding is becoming increasingly popular across the MTB scene, and with the growing demand for nocturnal adrenaline fixes comes a need for good lights. Riding your favourite trails at night is very different from riding them in the day – and actually it can be a lot more fun as well. Regardless of how well you think you know your local trail, it’ll look and feel very different in the dark.
British company, Exposure Lights have been dominating the scene for a number of years now, offering a wide variety of bike lights to illuminate trails all over the country. We tested their Maxx-D and Joystick lights on the Welsh mountain trails of Cwmcarn.
