Modern bike lights can be split into two main categories – lights for road/commuting use and lights for mountain bike use. It’s important to be clear what type you’re after, as they differ vastly in terms of light output, run time, weight and expense.
Mountain bike lights are largely about power – they need to light up unlit trails in dark woods littered with rocks, roots and other obstacles, generally only for short periods at a time. You can find out more about them in our Buyer’s Guide to Mountain Bike Lights and Best Mountain Bike Lights round-up.
Road/commuter lights, on the other hand, are designed primarily to make the cyclist visible to other road users. Factors such as battery life, weight and side visibility are more important than pure power. Prices are a lot lower, too. These are the lights we’ll be looking at in this article, which includes the best ones we’ve tested this winter, plus the best lights from previous tests.
