With the nights starting to draw in, now is the time to rifle through your cupboards and make sure you have at least one back-up light on your bike at all times.

This week’s round-up gives you plenty of options in case you can’t find them – and of course you might decide you’re due an upgrade.

Your safety on the roads is one of the most important considerations after all, and having a decent rear light with you is absolutely vital.

We will be posting full tests of a selection of these rear lights soon.

    The UFO is the worst light I have ever owned. Used it in the rain on it’s first outing and it broke (with mudguards). Had it replaced and after a few months it started turning itself off if I went over a bump. On the plus side it was good when it worked!

  • Andrew B

    I’d add the R1 Lunar to the list (1watt light). Great little light (but powerful) for about £13 from Planet X. I dont think you need much else.

    Am I missing something or is this just a list of some of the rear lights available. Where’s the review?
