You can trust Cycling Weekly. Our team of experts put in hard miles testing cycling tech and will always share honest, unbiased advice to help you choose. Find out more about how we test.

If you’re after a light that will get you through some pretty serious nighttime riding, and are willing to overlook a pretty questionable name, then the MyTinySun Folkslight is an excellent option.

If we’re being completely honest, this is a light that’s really designed for mountain biking, so no surprise that it’s seriously bright. You get not one, but two beams, something that you’re much more likely to find on more expensive lights. One is designed to light up a wide area, while the second more focused beam is designed to focus on the road in front of you, making sure you don’t plough head long into any sizeable potholes.
