Sigma Pava front light review£59.99

Tough night time guidance

BikeRadar score4/5

Sigma’s Pava – also available in a set with a rear light – has a tough, rubberised casing, and throws out a powerful horizontal beam that's strong enough for both being seen by and lighting poorly lit routes.

There’s a claimed burn time of 40 hours on the lower of two settings, and while the red light came on to warn of reduced lighting after four hours, even on the lower setting the beam was reassuringly bright. A decent choice for the long-distance commuter, especially when paired with rechargeable batteries.

Simon has been cycling for as long as he can remember, and more seriously since his time at university in the Dark Ages (the 1980s). This has taken in time trialling, duathlon and triathlon and he has toured extensively in Asia and Australasia, including riding solo 2900km from Cairns to Melbourne. He now mainly rides as a long-distance commuter and leisure/fitness rider. He has been testing bikes and working for Cycling Plus in various capacities for nearly 20 years.
