We may be revelling in the lighter evenings. But for Aussie brand Knog, nighttime riding is just starting. So it’s chosen to indulge its home market with the launch of the new Cobber light.

The Cobber is designed to give a really wide angle of illumination, with 330 degree lighting, so that you can be seen well from just about all angles as well as see ahead yourself. There are front and rear Cobber lights and they come in three sizes, with each having up to eight lighting levels.

Amongst its eight mode arsenal, it also has an eco mode which will shine 35 lumens for 120 hours. The rear version will give 160 lumens constant for 2 hours, 270 lumens flashing for 6.5 hours or 15 lumens flashing for 100 hours.
