There's only two reasons that you need lights, and they both happen to be pretty good ones.
One, to see. Even if you travel along a fairly well lit route, there's no doubt that at some point you'll come across potholes, gaps in the street lighting, or something else that makes you wish you could see in the dark.
Two, be seen. Cars, pedestrians and other riders want to avoid you just as much as you want to avoid them. Give them the best chance you can to do that, and help keep everyone safe. To ensure the best visibility for both yourself and other road users, it is common to attach Front Lights and Rear Lights. Handy Lightsets combine both into one package.
Our range consists of USB and battery-operated options. USB lights tend to weigh less and prove more cost-effective over time by negating the need for replacing the battery. Those with batteries may be the preferred option for those not in favour of needing to recharge every once in a while.
If you are riding in darker areas for longer periods and require visibility of the road or path ahead, then you will need to consider the lumen output of the light. The greater the number of lumens, the greater the amount of light emitted and the further ahead you’ll see.
A number of settings may be available to the rider that can impact how long the battery will last.
Brightness. Higher brightness setting will use more battery power.
Flashing mode. Typically helps hold charge longer, mainly because the brightness doesn’t need to be as high and due to the time between each flash.
Pulse mode. Uses battery power than flash mode because the time between each pulse is a fraction of the time between each flash in flashing mode.
