As the nights draw in we find ourselves considering our cycle lighting options again and its good to see most bike light models are either getting a power boost or a reduction in price.
Here are my top 3 picks for this seasons best rear bike light.
1. Moon Nebula 200 RRP £39.99
The Moon Nebula was one of our best selling rear lights last season and this year its received a power boost to 200 lumens in flashing mode. The flash is very bright on the top setting so is best reserved for commutting and day time riding. Using this mode in a group ride is going to cause some head aches for the people behind you. Fortunately this can be turned down and also extends the run time. In the 20 Lumen flash mode the run time is 25hr. The Moon Nebula has a classy brushed aluminium finish which gives it a quality premium finish and we expect it to be very popular again this season.
2. Lezyne Strip Drive RRP £34.99
The Lezyne Strip drive 150 has also undergone a make over from last season with a new front panel which provides increased side visibility. Their are 11 modes ranging from 3 lumens giving 30 hours of run time upto 150 lumens in flash mode. The new model now has a charging cable which makes it easier to recharge in a computer. The old version was very popular and this uprated model looks like ever better value.
3. Moon Comet-X RRP £24.99
The Moon Comet X was first release last season and still looks good this year. It is USB chargable and pumps out a respectable 50 lumens and has a max run time of 19hrs. With the usually Moon quality control and a much lower price than the high output lights this is still a great option and highly visible to motorists.
