TOP 3 Best Urban Cycling Lights
If you are cycling in the dark, it’s important to have good cycling lights in order to improve your visibility.
Therefore, let’s dig right into BIKE Magazine‘s pick of the 3 best cycling lights.
The Fenix BC21R projects a bright, broad beam of 880 lumens. It comes with a spare 18650 rechargeable Li-ion battery and a power-saving feature called Intelligent Output Downshift that automatically steps the light down to a lower setting, both of which extend ride time. However, it does not include a helmet mount and the rubber-ladder handle bar mount strap is flimsy.
Knog Blinder ARC 640
The Knog Blinder ARC 640, which hails from Australia, projects a bright, broad beam of 640 lumens and hits the sweet spot for bike commuting in terms of overall quality and looks. Powered by a USB-rechargeable Lithium Polymer battery, it is durable and its integrated silicone mounting system accommodates a wide variety of handlebar sizes. However the light switch is challenging to operate when wearing gloves.
Lezyne Macro Drive 1100XL
The Lezyne Macro Drive 1100XL projects a bright, wide, powerful beam of 1100 lumens. It has six brightness modes to provide a variety of illumination levels for urban and mountain bike rides, including a flash and pulse mode. However it can be difficult to attach to handlebars due to the miniscule pull-tab.
