How to Find the Best Light for your Bicycle

Bicycle lights: A light for every situation

Autumn has started. This means that the days are getting shorter and the nights will be longer. Off course this is not a reason to leave your bike in the shed. Because commuting is possible all year long. A little storm, some hard wind and leaves on the road can’t stop you. Not even the darkness that reigns when you are getting on your bicycle towards work. As long as it is safe to cycle, you will commute. And with a set of good lights you will keep yourself visible for other and get a perfect view on the road in front of you.

How to select the best light for your situation can be a big task. So, we are glad to help you with this decision and you read all about it in this blog. We distinguish four different situations in which you can use a different light.

  • Lights to use in the city
  • Cycling on illuminated bike paths
  • Cycling on unlit bike paths
  • In a nightly forest

    1. Lights to use in the city

    Do you always cycle through the city? On roads which are illuminated perfectly. In that case you need bicycle lights which make you visible for other traffic during your ride. We talk about little lights that can be easily attached to a bicycle or cycling clothes. These lights will give a maximum bulb of 150 lumen and are price-friendly.


    The Signal light is designed for cyclists who prioritize visibility in urban environments. It emits a bright light using white or red COB LEDs, ensuring that you're seen even in the darkest areas of the city. Its versatility is highlighted by the silicone strap, allowing easy mounting on both the seat post and handlebar, either horizontally or vertically. This feature ensures that the Signal light can be used on all types of bicycles, making it an ideal choice for city riders seeking extreme visibility.

    2. Cycling on illuminated bike paths

    Do you cycle out of the city on your way to work, but do you stay on illuminated bike paths. In that case you need a light with a big bundle. Lights that will make you visible when there is less light provided by your surroundings. That will keep you safe and makes sure you will mention every gap in the road in front of you.


    The Stud gives you a nice bundle on the road without blinding upcoming traffic. This light is provided with three modes which make it suitable for use in and outside the city. With only one push on the button you can switch between a big and a small bundle and flash mode. Charging can be done everywhere and easily by using the USB cable.

    3. Cycling on unlit bike paths

    When you need to travel over unlit bike paths when riding to work, you need to have good visibility on the road ahead of you. Nobody want to be surprised by undiscovered gaps and holes. So, you need a bicycle light that illuminates the whole road and keeps you safe.

    Nano Strike

Additionally, its special daytime flashing light mode enhances safety at any time of day, ensuring you're visible even on unsafe roads.

    4. In a nightly forest

    When you are going to ride through the forest at night you need a light with an extremely big bundle. You want to look very far ahead in every circumstance. This is why you need a bicycle light that gives you absolute freedom to ride as hard through the night as you would do during the day.
