What really small, but really bright lights (for child's bike)?
It’ll not be long until the ride to/from school will be done in murky/dark conditions. The cheapy silicon lights my lad used last year have dissappeared, so I need to get him some more.
I liek the idea of the silicon bodied ones, but want to make sure he’s lit up liek a christmas tree.
Options so far are Raleigh RSP, 100 Lumen Cree, USB rechargable:
Or simply a pair of little silicone lights:

Bizarre that for the same money as the Raleigh one, I could get a dodgy solarstom alleged 5000Lumen beast, but it would mean carrying the extra weight of the battery!johnnystormSubscriber
Exposure Flash & Flare. Anything cheaper is tantamount to child abuse. 😉

If it’s just to be seen, these:
I use them as helmet lights for commuting, but really great lights for the money
To actually see on a dark lane, something torch like off ebay…..Posted 4 years agostAn-Bad Brains MBCMember
The lezyne lights are pretty good – I use a FEMTO rear and a MICRO-DRIVEfront.Posted 4 years ago
The micro drive is charged via USB has a 5 settings , at least one of which will be strong enough for the unlit park.
Both fit on and off really easy – so are easy to stick in pocket/bag while in the bike shed.thetallpaulSubscriber
Aldi have a set of lights (LED torch and rear) on offer on Thursday.
I used a set all last winter and they worked in all weathers no problems.
May be worth getting a couple of sets.
There are also arm/ankle reflectors with lights which are particularly effective as other traffic can see that you are a cyclist by the movement.
You can even get some microlights on elastic bands to attach to bags., helmets, etc.
Now traded up to a MTB Batteries Lumenator and Moon Comet. I highly rate both and they are bright and controllable enough to be used all year round.Posted 4 years agorobbiehMember

definitely not one of those, far to bright to give a child to aim at other road users. I switch mine off when I come on road from the woods as I don’t want to blind an oncoming car. Superb light.Posted 4 years ago
