Niterider 250 Cordless front light review£129.99

Superb value package

BikeRadar score4/5

We’re big fans of Niterider’s MiNewt lights and their new 250 light packs the same head into a bright, light and convenient all-in-one package.

Unlike most cheaper lights, the cordless unit gives a broad enough, distortion-free light pool with a healthy amount of throw. There’s enough light to pick out detail on techy sections too.

The ratchet bar bracket can wobble a bit on really rocky trails unless you really squeeze it on tight, but there’s a helmet mount included too. The in-built battery means no mounting hassles.

The medium power setting is still bright enough for riding, which extends the otherwise short run times. The USB-compatible charging lead is great for commuters too, which all makes this a cracking all-rounder for the cash.
