I've started mountain biking a few months ago and mainly go off road through woods etc but now the dark nights are here i need a decent set of lights, i've been told hope vision 4 are good but they are way out of my price range, anyone know of any good lights that they use, also looking for a helmet light to go with it.

Rep for any help

What an unhelpful reply?

if you don't know -why post?

I'm sure he's aware halfords stock bike lights, and I'm sure the generic link to what appear to be the worst set of lights ever created (with free postage) is equally pointless.

No cringing here - I was responding to the most pointless reply to a query I've ever seen - even on HUKDs. Are you on a rep hunt or what?

You do realise the bike shop comment was a joke right?

Read your own post back, and point me in the direction of ANY useful information?

Hey OP, try these (first result in google): http://www.amazon.co.uk/Friendly-wind-Micro-Light-Torch/dp/B000W4BJ0O

You clearly have no idea on this topic holly, so why waste peoples time with such crud? Misinformation is worse than no information - did you select those particular lights for any reason other than woo free postage?

I haven't got a halfords near me and i was looking for a helmet LIGHT, not a helmet:whistling:

And thanks but them lights you linked to are not really what i'm looking for, i was looking for opinions of people that actually do what i'll be doing, riding off road through woods not to be seen on the road by cars.

and do not insult me by saying am i on a rep hunt

the reputation i have is due to deals/comps / freebies i have posted -

Dunno - sorry if I've annoyed you, I was just trying to make a point.

I ride mountain bikes, but have no real technical knowledge of lights, so wasn't gonna post a load of pointless rubbish for you to trawl though. Sadly it turns out i did that anyway, so sorry about that.

Like I said, I'll leave now - good luck!

There are some recommendations in this thread
http://www.bikeradar.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=14985507

My suggestion would be to check out Ay Up's...

£149 gets you the Roadie kit with 1 x twin high power LED + 6 hour battery life
£249 gets you the MTb kit, with 2 x twin high power LED + 6 hr + 2 x 3hr batteries

The kits come with loads bits and pieces, are super light, and available in 2 different beam types.

Google Ay Up lights for more info (there is a UK site, delivery was stupidly quick, like ordered 11am, received next morning).


There was also a thread on here about some cheap (£10) Tesco torches which cyclists fixed to their helmet and I'm fairly certain it linked to this thread
http://www.bikeradar.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=12588492&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0
It was probably this one
http://direct.tesco.com/q/R.203-8191.aspx
Its out of stock but might give some ideas for a cheaper alternative to Ay Up..........

there are some pretty good ones at Halfords, they are end of line but they are pretty bright, hard to find them though, my sister uses them and she rides at night and obviously has to be bright. linky....

I always used cateyes but there are some decent lights coming out of china these days for not a lot of money,These seem to have good reviews http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.25149

Also have to say there is nothing like flying down a trail you know well on night with a good set of lights,But stick to trails you know and always carry at least one spare torch,

Before buying any lights it would make good sense to go to a bike shop & see what's available - not necessarily to buy, but to look at what sort of lights there are, & get some advice on the pros and cons of the different ones. Then start shopping around.

It would be a shame to spend that much money on a set & then find that they're no good for what you want.

Couple of cheap ones on deal extreme, may not be great for serious biking though, take a look see what you think
