Which Bicycle Lighting to choose - Does Price Matter?

2023-09-13

Bicycle Riding Lights

Every cyclist who wants to move on the roads while adhering to basic safety rules should equip their bike with three types of lights: front warning lights (red), front illuminating lights (white or yellow), and rear (red). According to regulations, when cycling outside built-up areas, you should use full lighting to ensure comfortable riding in the dark and to remain visible on the road.

What Characteristics Should Good Bicycle Lights Have?

Usually, it's sufficient to invest in so-called daytime running lights. For those who frequently ride after dark, a better choice would be lights for night riding, which are much more powerful than standard ones. To choose the right product, check the emitted light output, which is measured in lumens: the higher the value, the brighter the light.

Let's not forget about an additional aspect, which is the power source. You can choose from classic bicycle lights powered by a dynamo (generator), commonly used for city bikes, and those powered by batteries or rechargeable batteries - these are preferred by road cyclists.

Quality vs. Price - Does Bicycle Lighting Have to Be Expensive?

The choice of bicycle lights should be preceded by a good understanding of your own needs. Only when we determine what we require from the lighting can we move on to the issue of price. The amount you have to pay for safety and convenience varies depending on whether the lights have additional features, how they are powered, and whether the manufacturer has taken care of their durability, ease of installation, and efficiency.

If a bicycle light is to meet our needs, it can cost from 100 PLN and up. Of course, there's nothing wrong with investing in cheaper lighting. However, it's worth keeping in mind that after some time, you may need to replace them with new ones.
