This set includes a 500-lumen front light.
Lezyne

If you’re commuting by bike, this bike light set from Lezyne is a good choice.

Moon Comet X-Pro rear light – £37 £22.99 (save 38%)

Alex Evans / Immediate Media

Knog Cobber Mid – £62.99 £38.59 (save 39%)

The Cobber has good side-to-side illumination.
Alex Evans / Immediate Media

The selling point of the Knog Cobber Mid is its side-on visibility, which is particularly advantageous when cycling in busy cities. The run time is lower than Knog claims at 1 hour 40 minutes, but that is still good considering its 75-lumen output.

Lezyne Strip Alert Drive – £42.99 £27.99 (save 35%)

150 lumens is more than enough for a rear light.
Lezyne

The Lezyne Strip Alert Drive features a 150-lumen output and 11 different modes. The built-in accelerometer offers a brake light functionality and, better still, you can grab it with 35 per cent off at Chain Reaction.

Knog PWR Road 700L – £84.99 £59.99 (save 29%)

The Knog PWR Road’s power bank and charging options make it a good choice for touring or multi-day rides.
Russell Burton / Immediate Media

Knog’s modular PWR system is based around a central power pack available in a number of different capacities.

Here, it’s paired with a 700-lumen head, which offers excellent beam quality and versatility, in an easy-to-use device.

Our tester found it simple to move through the PWR Road 700L’s six modes. This is worth bearing in mind when wearing full-finger winter gloves.

We gave this already keenly priced product four stars in our review. It’s a Black Friday bargain from ProBikeKit at 29 per cent off.

Exposure MaXx D MK13 – £385 £284.99 (save 26%)

The MaXx D MK13 has an OLED screen that displays current mode, battery charge and run time.
Ian Linton / Immediate Media

Exposure’s MaXx D MK13 is a high-tech light for dark off-roading. It features the same Reflex mode as seen on the Six Pack, and includes four XP-L2 LEDs to produce a maximum 4,000 lumens in Reflex mode.

The MaXx D doesn’t come cheap, but its power and technology gained it a four-stars review in our testing. Leisure Lakes Bikes’ Black Friday deal is the best we’ve found.

Bontrager Ion Pro RT – £119.99 £83.99 (save 30%)

The Bontrager Ion PRO RT’s beam can be controlled by a Garmin via Bluetooth.
Russell Burton / Immediate Media

This high-performance, adaptable light comes highly rated and is now even better value thanks to Triton Cycles’ Black Friday deal, the best we’ve spotted.

With a sizeable 1,200-lumen maximum output and well-focused beam, the Bontrager Ion RT is suitable for unlit, low-traffic roads, as well as trails. Its five modes and three power settings allow you to dial down the power for more urban settings and daytime riding.

Our tester could barely fault it, awarding the Ion RT four and a half stars in our review.

Lezyne Hecto Drive 500XL – £45 £34 (save 24%)

Lezyne’s Hecto Drive 500XL is a portable light for short, urban rides.
Lezyne

The Lezyne Hecto Drive XL’s 500 lumens is enough for a decent pace on unlit bike paths, though with only one hour of run time at max output, the Hecto is best for use as an urban light.

It charges quickly, stays in the mode you last used it in (surprisingly handy) and offers a total of eight flashing and constant modes, with claimed run times of between one hour and 20 hours.

The Lezyne Hecto Drive 500XL would come in handy as a backup light, especially now with a third cut off the price. Wiggle’s Black Friday deal is the cheapest we’ve come across.

Specialized Flux 850 – £95 £65 (save 32%)

The Specialized Flux 850 can fit on your helmet as well as your handlebars.
Luke Marshall / Our Media

The Specialized Flux 850 lets you toggle between low and high modes, so you don’t need to go round the endless loop of different options when you want to change output level. It’s a compact unit that can be helmet-mounted as well as under-bar, and its two LEDs give wide and spot beams to light the way.

Run times are up to six hours and there’s an ultra-low output mode that will extend that for another three hours. Leisure Lakes also has the Flux 1250 on sale for £79 if you want more light.

Garmin Varia UT800 – £149 £99 (save 34%)

The Varia UT800 lasts 1.5 hours on full 800-lumen blast.
Garmin

The Garmin Varia UT800 front light plugs into Garmin’s cycling computer infrastructure, enabling you to control it from a Garmin Edge head unit. It also takes speed data from the Edge to adjust its light level to suit your ride speed, helping to conserve battery.

A GoPro attachment mount means that the Varia 800 can be fixed to the underside of an out-front computer mount, saving you bar real estate. It’s IPX7 waterproof and in flashing mode can run for up to 25 hours on a charge.

Bontrager Ion 200 RT/Flare RT2 light set – £90 £65 (save 28%)

You can connect the Bontrager Ion 200 to Garmin and Bontrager devices via ANT+

These diminutive urban lights from Bontrager pack a punch with up to 200 lumens front and 90 lumens rear to make sure you’re seen. They’ll connect to Garmin and Bontrager devices via ANT+, giving you wireless control and battery status info.

We rated the Ion 100/Flare R set when we tested it, so the added firepower of this upgraded set should serve you even better. They include light sensors to adjust brightness suiting the conditions and the rear light will switch to a battery save mode at 5 per cent charge remaining, so there’s less chance of getting home and finding that it’s given out.

Lezyne Multi Drive 1000 Loaded front light – £180 £86.49 (save 50%)

You’ll get three hours out of the Lezyne Multi Drive 1000 at 1,000 lumens.

If you like the versatility of a light with a separate battery, the Lezyne Multi Drive 1000 might fit the bill. The head unit weighs just 73g and the 1.7m cable means it’s easy to helmet-mount the light and keep the battery in your pack or on the bike. The loaded option comes with bar and helmet mounts with the Direct X-Lock stem-mounting system.

The runtime is 3 hours at 1,000 lumens, with cooling fins in the light body helping to dissipate heat. The lowest output flashing mode will keep going for up to 35 hours on a charge.

Black Friday cycling deals: quick links

When is Black Friday 2022?

Black Friday is an annual consumer event famous for brands discounting everything from tech and gadgets to bikes and kit. This year, it takes place on Friday 25 November.

It’s also directly followed by Cyber Monday on 28 November, but over the last few years we’ve seen retailers start their deals weeks in advance.

Fewer people will be wanting to hit the shops this year, so brands are likely to take advantage of this and share their best offers online rather than in-store.

Whether bike lights are on your wishlist or you know a cycling enthusiast who needs some, you’ll find the best bike light Black Friday deals right here.

We’ll be shining a light on the best Black Friday cycling deals this week.
Russell Burton / Immediate Media

Last year, we saw huge reductions on bike light prices from brands including Light & Motion, Guee, Exposure and Blackburn.

And there were big opportunities not only to save on single bike lights, but also on sets. On several occasions, we also saw those with an RRP over £100 dropping to £40.

As always, it’s worth referring to tools such as Camel Camel Camel to ensure deals are as good as they seem.
