Best bike lights: dazzling Black Friday 2020 discounts to keep you safe this winter

The best bike light deals to keep you visible this winter

It’s important to be seen on your bike year round, but as we enter in to the longer nights of autumn and winter,  bike rides can mean night rides.

Rather than hanging up your wheels for the winter, investing in a decent set of lights can keep you on the bike year round. Riding after dark is also a brilliant way to experience a totally new way of cycling, with your familiar roads and paths taking on a totally new perspective.

Investing in a good set of bike lights will be key to keeping you safe on the roads at night.  This page houses the best deals we can find on bike lights, including excellent Cateye, Garmin and Knog.

The products featured have been chosen because we know they’re good quality and are an excellent offer at the price we’ve included (at the time of writing). Our tech team have unrivalled expertise and years of experience testing new products, so you can trust our recommendations – and we also know what represents a good deal.

Nightrider Sabre 80 rear light | £25.00 £12.99
We tested the Nightrider Sabre 80 rear light as part of a set, but even as a stand alone this powerful unit really packs a punch. The USB rechargeable unit proved to be really durable in all weather, as well as super bright and has great burn times of between 1:30 and 10:30 hours, depending on what setting is selected. Amber sides provide 180degree visibility, and the easy on/ off mounting strap should fit all bar the widest of aero seat posts, but the addition of a clothing  mount will help mitigate this issue.

The Garmin Varia Radar bundle is both a rear light and warning system for oncoming tail traffic. The built in radar will detect multiple approaching vehicle up to 140 metres behind you, but our testing suggests it’s up to 400 metres on a straight road, and once detected the wireless system indicates the relative speed of vehicles approach via the head unit, also giving audible warnings. The rear light then brightens and flashes to notify the approaching traffic of a cyclist ahead.
