Emergency/pits light (practically compulsory for 24 hour races)

Not strictly a bike light but we’ve included this because everyone needs a handy chuck-in-the-pack/around-the-camp light and this is so much better than clenching a torch between your teeth as you struggle double-handed with the enmeshed tent zip after coming in from a night lap.

The light itself is surprisingly good, with a flip-across lens switching it from spot to flood, and a boost button to provide extra power (the downside being you have to keep your finger on it to get the boost). We’d use it as a helmet light at a push – and it’s invaluable for trailside repairs in the dark.
