Lights for racing

Postby oldredpinarello » Fri Jul 19, 2013 21:34 pm

hi!

Im doing some races in Norway in the upcoming weeks and they include several long tunnels through fjord passes, which mean that race organisers make having lights on your bike compulsory.

Can anybody recommend decent lights that are not bulky but nice and bright, plus will fit on quite fat bars? I can spend a reasonable amount of money, say £100 total for front and rear?

thanks

Are the tunnels pitch black or lit? I'd want the smallest and lightest lights i was allowed to get away with if racing - a pair of Lezyne Femto Drive would be my pick (i actually have a pair as backup / emergency use lights)

Knog have some decent offerings, I have one of their USB rears and it's small but pretty darned bright. I like that there's no mounting bracket - the whole light unclips in a single movement.

Wont be pitch black, but would like the lights to be useful after the race so dont want them to be too feeble! Thanks for your suggestions, I will look into them
