Bike Lights For Commuting

Our Top Picks

The freedom to choose your route, escape the rat race and keep fit on the way to work - commuting by bike is great, although it does come with its challenges. Safety is always a major concern, especially when riding during peak times and in built up areas. With a lot of distractions on the road standing out from the noise is of paramount importance to help reduce the chances of a collision. Bike lights play a crucial role when it comes to increasing your visibility on the road. We've taken a closer look at some of our favourite lights, designed to aid your commute.

MET Safe-T Advanced LED Light Cover

Using your head when darkness looms used to be just limited to attaching a set of lights to your bike, that was until MET came along with their Safe-T Advanced LED Light Cover.

A nifty helmet mounted light, it is designed specifically to attach to the Safe-T Advanced retention system found on MET helmets. With the light positioned on your head, visibility is greatly improved, due to its elevated position. The six LED layout provides peripheral visibility, while 12 hours of battery life and easy charging via USB makes this the ideal light for commuting.
