What rear light?
one flashing, one ‘constant’
even better, 2 ‘constant’ lights, 1 fixed to your bike, 1 fixed to your back/helmet – the slightly wobbly motion is very eye catching*.
don’t forget your dorky ankle straps – the up/down motion screams BIKE!.
respro ones are very good.
one on your right ankle, one on your right wrist – for signalling.
(it seems they’re reversible, hi-viz for gloomy half-light, and fully retro-reflective for when it’s dark)
*our brains just love picking out movement-with-a-pattern:

There’s loads of good ones at the moment.
I use a Smart Lunar R2 with a wide Cateye 5 LED one (can’t remember it’s name). I use the R2 flashing and the Cateye on constant. Just bought some rechargable batteries too, so i can keep them topped up.
A mate of mine has one of those Moon Comet lights and they are very bright.
Another mate has got an Exposure Flare and that’s very bright too.
As above somewhere, probably best to ride with at least 2 rear lights so you have some redundancy should the batteries in one die. I keep meaning to get some of those reflective bands too for my ankles….Posted 4 years agoGrahamSSubscriber
Just bought myself a Lezyne Zecto Drive Read LED.
I’m impressed so far. 3 bright LEDs. USB charging. Six flashing modes including a 20 lumen daytime flash.
I combine it with a Fibre Flare (mounted on my seatstay), which is also excellent, as well as a few rear reflectives.

(Fibre Flare – not my bike)aphex_2kMember
Worth having a look at the SeeSense light on Kickstarter. I’ve backed it.
I have a FibreFlare that fits nicely on my Camelback and a Smart 1w attached to my seatpost. I think the more light the better – no matter how much you have there’s always someone that doesn’t see you so in my mind more visibility the better.Posted 4 years ago
