Not a bad price ... but it's normally £25 ish in most bike shops anyway.

Can be found for near half this price online too.

thanks for posting though - I bought the same set for my girlfriend, really good quality and battery life is very good. Definitely worth buying decent lights nowadays.

I know the original price is over inflated, however they are a bit cheaper, with no postage if you can pick them up localy, and you can always take them back and shout at someone if they break within 12 months :viking:

These are great lights, I bought some for £24.95 in Selfridges 2 years ago and have never had any problems (use them daily on my commute) :thumbsup:

Just a tip that these are far better and cheaper too!

Have you used both?

Do they last longer on batteries? Are they brighter? Are the mounts as easy to fix to the bike?

They may be brighter, or may not. But they look cheaper, and going by reviews the fittings are cheaper

Yup, I have both sets. The wiggle ones are brighter and I've never had any problems with the fittings.

Both lights are really only good for being seen rather than for seeing in pitch darkness.

The Wiggle ones are very highly rated on both that website and on cycling forums like bikeradar.com

I haven't voted on this as am not sure how good a deal these cateye ones are at the mo but just giving some advice as to which is better in my opinion ( and I do ALOT of cycling) lol :thumbsup:

+1 on the Smart Pulsar lights from Wiggle.

I've used them in all weathers for a couple of years and they have worked flawlessly. The rear is VERY (eye scorchingly) bright. Keeps motorists a good few feet back if angled right.

The front is okay as an emergency / backup light in unlit lanes if you don't cycle too fast, but isn't really bright enough to see by. However it works very well as a blinking be seen light.

Rears run off a pair of AAA, and fronts on AA. Using rechargeables I get a full weeks commute out of them easily between charges (i..e 10+ hours using hybrids on blink setting).

Still on the original clips, and are very easy to attach / take off the lights.

HTH - Rufus.

Halfords now have a couple of Bikehut light sets at very cheap prices.

This set looks very good for £15.00:

I'm after some lights for kids bikes (well almost adult bikes!) - do you think these would do (bikehut) or the Cateye (ones now showing at £29.99)? Only concern was the fittings and one review saying they fell off when going over a bump? will be handy for our next centre parc holiday.


The fittings on the Bikehut set have been highlighted as a problem on some cycling forums as well, so maybe it's best to steer clear of these. If the priority is to be seen, as opposed to have a more powerful front light to see where you are going, then the Smart set at Wiggle posted above looks very good value.

Thanks for reply ClashinDevon, apologies I deleted my earlier posting, as Halfords didn't have the bikehut ones, even though their system showed it as stock. Just as well really.
http://www.wiggle.co.uk/p/cycle/7/Smart_5_LED_Front_and_317_Rear_Light_Set/5360026000/ vs chain reaction ones http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=31337 Looks like Wiggle have the edge, will go for them. Thanks for your help.

Yes, even though it is £1.00 more, the Wiggle set has the 317 rear light while (I think) the Chain Reaction set has the 307 rear light. Rolf F pointed out on a cycling forum that the rrp for the 307 on its own is £9.99 , while the rrp for the 317 is £15.99. Plus the front light looks better as it is rated at 90 candle power, as opposed to 54 for the Chain Reaction front light.
