Exposure's 2021 lights are here with boosted brightness and feature updates

More power and more features across the entire range

Exposure has updated its complete road and urban specific light range, increasing output and updating a range of practical features.

We might not like to admit it but the time of year when the nights are slowly creeping up on us seems to be upon us. That means it's time to dust off your trusty lights or invest in a new set in order to keep you riding after sunset. Exposure has long been one of, if not THE go-to cycle light brand for a considerable amount of time. Building an enviable reputation for exquisitely CNC machining and constant technical innovation, the Sussex based company manufactures and assembles all of its lights in-house making it one of the true UK brands.

Exposure Trace and TraceR review

For 2021 its impressively broad range sees some updates across the board. Lumen count has increased for all as well as some work to the machined cooling fins present on each front light. Those of you with a keen eye might notice the laser etched name on the many of the lights has changed, and those with a really keen eye might recognise it as the topography of Exposure's home on the South Downs.
