Niterider Lumina 750 light - in brief review£99.99

Impressive lighting power

BikeRadar score4/5

Niterider's Lumina 750 delivers a very impressive rounded beam with lot of light around lower edge to spot road debris and potholes, then a long reaching centre strip for confident high speed riding. Equally impressive stability is provided by the chunky overkill round bar clamp with large thumbwheel and a helmet mount is included too.

Mount and power mean it’s one of the few lights at this price you could use for less technical off road riding too. A peak over the lens stops upwards glare, and while battery life is short there are three power options and a battery indicator built into the switch. The thermal trigger that protects the internals from getting fried if the light gets too hot can drop power pretty quick on warm nights, despite deep curved cooling fins built into the casing. It's fine on colder or faster rides making it a punchy winter training/commuting light for the money.

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.
