Best Black Friday bike light deals: brilliant beams at bargain prices

Looking for new front and rear beams? Our pick of the best, reduced ahead of Black Friday

If you're going to ride before dawn or after dusk, you'll need a white beam at the front and a red at the back - the good news is that there's a range of Black Friday bike light deals to get you sorted on the cheap(ish).

>>> Best bike lights: a buying guide 

The kind of bike lights you need will depend upon where you're riding, and to a certain extent, how fast. Speedy rides on unlit roads will require a 'seeing fount light' - in the region of 800 - 1000+ lumens, giving you enough foresight to dodge obstructions.

Those commuting on lit roads need a 'be seen front light', anywhere from 50 - 300 lumens is plenty, thought we'd always opt for more rather than less.

All riders need a red rear light, lumen count here is much lower, around 30 being enough.

Seeing bike lights can be expensive - but it's worth paying extra for reliability - no one wants to find they're left in the dark on the way home. But there are a few deals around to help you out.

Evans Cycles, Chain Reaction Cycles, Wiggle, Halfords, Tredz more are all shouting about Black Friday deals at the moment - but we did find Evans had the most offers on lights... (opens in new tab)
