Knog Lights – Brand review Keeping you Safe..

Knog Lights

As the winter approaches it’s time to get the winter miles in so that the summer smiles come much easier.  With that in mind we all rear for the reflective tops, arm bands, bright clothes and the most important the bike lights.  As an avid winter cyclist I have chosen the Knog lights range.  they offer such an amazing range of lights Knog lights  MASSIVE range of very high quality USB bike lights.

So the owner of multiple bikes having the ability to chop and change the bike lights that I throw on each bike pre ride makes this range idea.  If it’s a foggy day then I will throw a couple of the smaller lights angling them slightly so I am visible at junctions from all angles in the low light.  When it’s the power commute, (I have a route that I am busting to beat 40 minutes to get to the office) I mount a couple of the front Knog blinders as I have two off road sections that I hit hard.

The bike Knog lights range is amazing.  They are not the cheapest on the market but over the years many have been tried and failed.  either in their capability, their charge length or simply the way they attach to the bike.  The Knog blinder range is very strong in all of these areas.  The way they attach is so simple and well designed, idea for people with multiple bikes.

About Rear Lights

Almost all bicycle rear lights use LEDs instead of filament bulbs as they are more reliable and use much less battery power, whilst also offering much higher levels of brightness. Used in flashing mode, they are very good at attracting attention from other road users. It’s advisable to use at least two rear bike lights, a common configuration is one flashing and one in constant, this is highly advisable just in case one stops or becomes obscured.

In order to cycle on the road it may be a legal requirement in your country to use a light certified to a specific standard or an international equivalent. Most but not all lights sold on Wiggle are certified and labelled with a European CEN standard. Please check your country’s requirements to see if this is sufficient and if necessary contact the manufacturer to see if this light has been additionally certified for your country. Strangely some of the very best lights are not legal on their own and should be used with an additional legal backup light.

About Front Lights

Cycle light technology has moved on greatly over the years, traditional ‘bulb’ lights have been more or less replaced by LED and HID systems. Battery, lens and reflector technology has been improved greatly resulting in brighter and longer run times. Wiggle lists a large selection of bicycle lights suitable for lit streets in the city, or unlit country lanes and even bike lights suitable for off road riding, ranging from around £8 to over £300 they vary greatly in purpose and performance. Tiny LED’s with flashing or constant modes are great for being seen in built up areas, whilst rechargeable systems can keep the road or off-road trails lit up for non-stop riding at night.
