Why Lights During the Day?
When cars did it, they reduced accidents by 25%. And motorcycles saw a 13% drop. Bicycle Daytime Running Lights just make sense, and all existing research indicates that the single best way for a cyclist to increase the likelihood of being seen by a driver is to use a flashing light that’s daylight visible.
What exactly makes a light visible in the day? Bontrager’s Daytime Running Lights (DRL) have unique properties that allow them to be seen during the day. Here’s what set ours apart from the others.
Off Road Lights
If you ride at night then you'll need a good light. Tackling the trails in the dark is much easier and definitely more fun when you can see what you're doing. The use of lights during trail riding and mountain. Typically a minimum of 700 Lumens for the helmet and 1000+ for the bike and as your speed and technical conditions increase. The faster you ride the more light you need in order to not “outrun” your beam. That means 2000 Lumens on your bars and 1000 on the helmet. Riding can get sketchy very quickly without enough power to light the trail in front of you.
