Front and rear LED lights for being seen

BikeRadar score3/5

These slick looking silver or black lights get a notched cowl at the LED end for a glimpse of side light, and toggle between solid and flashing modes to tune visibility and 2-16 hour run times. 

They’re for being seen, rather than seeing with, but the front is bright enough to limp home in an emergency and the switch has a battery indicator. 

They’re not as eye catching as a reflector or multi LED light in heavy urban traffic, but they’re great on country roads, and the silicone strap and clip mounts are secure. 

They plug directly into a USB port to charge.

Freelance Writer, UK
Guy started filling his brain with cycle stats and steaming up bike shop windows back in 1980. He worked the other side of those windows from '89 while getting a degree in “describing broken things covered in mud" (archaeology). Dug historical holes in the ground through the early '90s, then became a pro bike tester in '97. Guy has ridden thousands of bikes and even more components the world over since then and can remember them all in vivid, haunting detail. Can't remember where the car keys are, though.
