I have a friend who wants to continue commuting home to Arlington on the bike path during the winter. He needs a bike light that will allow him to see, not just be seen. However, he does not need something that’s going to last 24 hours. Suggestions oh wise ones?
Hi, I have one of those niteriders and the thing is awesome, 110 lumens for about 3 hours is more than I need when riding at night, there are more expensive models but the basic one should be enough.
Can I just say: thank goodness the Winter Solstice is less than a week away! I cannot WAIT for the days to start getting longer again!!
I'm with you, Abby, it's making me depressed.
Depends on what he is looking for. There are several out there on the market for riders, and I seen abou tall them on the mountain bike trails.
Nite Rider MiniNEWT 250- $116
Nite Rider MiniNEWT 350- $184
Lights And Motion Stella Series(I have the Stella 300):
Stella 120- $129
Stella 150- $169
Stella 200- $239
Lights And Motion VIS 360(Comes with Head and Tail, and can charge by using USB port)- $169
For those that you have to buy tail lights with, I would go with The FROG. Awesome little LED and very bright.
I don't think that any more than 120 lumens is needed on paved trails, but then again more light is always better.
Just my food for thought.
I did forget to mention an Austrailian company making some of the BADDEST lights I have seen yet.
Ay Up Lights- You get the starter model for $210( am buying the adventure one for $410)
I'm liking my Light & Motion Vis 360 setup...strong beam, and helmet mounted.
