KNOG PWR RIDER 450 £ 57.99

Urban Cyclist - - On Test -

If ever there was a light de­signed for the com­muter, this nifty lit­tle prod­uct from Knog is it. That’s be­cause it also dou­bles as a power bank. Sim­ply un­screw the end cap to ex­pose a USB for charg­ing your phone. (There’s also a mi­cro USB for charg­ing the light.) Knog say that the front light can 35% charge an iPhone 7 with one hour’s light use, which pretty much matches our ex­pe­ri­ence. Just note that you shouldn’t charge when rain­ing. We’d also ad­vise pur­chas­ing a phone bracket rather than drap­ing a long lead from your cock­pit to which­ever pocket you carry your phone. Hence, go for the small­est lead you can to re­duce loop­ing lead ex­cess. As for the light it­self, it boasts 450 lu­mens with an el­lip­ti­cal beam for wider pe­riph­eral view. There are six modes of light­ing – low, medium, high, pulse, and strobe and eco flash – with run time (when not charg­ing phone) rang­ing from 40mins to 35hrs. Fits neatly, too. Great stuff.

9 Ver­sa­tile and com­pact light that pow­ers your vi­sion and your phone
