Cycling Plus - - FIRST RIDE -


The £80 Cat­eye Sync Core 500-lu­men front light and £60 Sync Ki­netic 50-lu­men rear are avail­able on their own or as a set for £120. The trio is !nished o" by the round £50 Wear­able 50-lu­men rear that clips to your back or ruck­sack for max­i­mum night-time vis­i­bil­ity.

2 Get in Sync

The clue’s in the ‘Sync’ name. The Cat­eye Sync app al­lows you to syn­chro­nise all three lights so that they can all be ac­ti­vated us­ing just the Core front light. The app also lets you cus­tomise the lights’ #ash­ing modes, view bat­tery lev­els and sync the rear lights to #ash si­mul­ta­ne­ously.

3 Take a brake

The Ki­netic rear has six set­tings in­clud­ing a high-power, con­stant beam to #ash­ing mode. It also has a built-in ac­celerom­e­ter, which de­tects when you’re slow­ing down and then au­to­mat­i­cally bright­ens the LEDs to warn riders and driv­ers be­hind that you’re brak­ing.

4 Fronting up

The 109g Sync Core can be charged in three hours and has !ve set­tings. The day­time ‘Hyper­Con­stant’ func­tion pro­vides a claimed 18 hours of con­tin­u­ous il­lu­mi­natiuon through ei­ther a 100-lu­men con­stant beam or a 500lu­men #ash­ing mode.
