Cycling Plus - - NEW KIT -

ALPKIT TAU £14

Alpkit’s value 20g Tau mounts most places with twin hooked rub­ber bands. The sin­gle 20-lu­men COB LED strip gives two con­stant modes, pulse and two flash­ers to grab at­ten­tion with use­ful side cov­er­age, with a run time of 3 hours 30 mins on max power. The switch is back­lit to show full or low charge and it pow­ers back up quickly.

BONTRAGER FLARE R £44.99

This one-eyed, 47g Min­ion looka­like gets an an­gled bracket to point its range of steady and flash modes in the right di­rec­tion. Additional LEDs throw light side­ways and for­wards and it can be con­trolled and synced with Bontrager front lights via the £44.99 Trans­mitr wire­less re­mote or via your Garmin. Run time on max power is 4 hours 50 mins.

KNOG BLIN­DER MOB V MR CHIPS £37.99

The 44-lu­men 43g Mr Chips is part of a huge range of lights us­ing the sil­i­cone wrap strap de­sign Knog pi­o­neered for easy fit­ting. The hook sec­tion in­cludes the USB charger ‘tongue’ for easy plug in recharg­ing. Mul­ti­ple modes man­age vis­i­bil­ity and run times (2 hours 25 mins on max power) and it’s wa­ter­proof.

EX­PO­SURE TRACER £52.45

It’s not a uni­ver­sal fit op­tion but this 49g UK-built light uses an an­gled round post/tube com­pat­i­ble bracket to aim its 75-lu­men max out­put. It can be switched be­tween three sets of con­stant and puls­ing modes to tune its long run times (3 hours 10 mins on max power). The metal-bod­ied build is backed by a two-year war­ranty.

MOON NE­BULA £39.99

Moon’s 63g COB LED gives great vis­i­bil­ity up to a 100-lu­men max through four con­stant and four flash­ing modes, and from ex­pe­ri­ence the metal cas­ing aids dura­bil­ity. The range of mounts - hinged O-ring strap, se­cure belt/cloth­ing clip and sad­dle rail clip – and a ca­bled re­mote op­tion make the Ne­bula a user-friendly pack­age.

CATEYE RAPID X3 £59.99

Cateye’s three Rapid se­ries lights use a slim­line curved de­sign with op­tional deep-finned back piece and se­lec­tion of rub­ber straps to mount se­curely on deep, sharp-pointed aero seat­posts. With a 150-lu­men max from two COB LED strips the 51g X3 is pow­er­ful and all­round vis­i­ble for the busiest roads. Run time is 1 hour 20 mins on max power.
