Bike lights für night riding
Bicycle lighting is an elementary accessory for your bike. Lighting on the bike makes them visible to other road users and makes obstacles and bumps more visible. Bobshop offers them various front and rear lights and lighting sets.
When riding on the road, lighting on the bike and supplementary reflectors are mandatory.
At dusk and in the dark, bright front and rear reflectors are the essential building block for safe cycling.
Pay attention to the following important criteria when buying bicycle lights:
Brightness: especially the front light should have sufficient brightness, so that on the one hand it casts enough light on the road for forward-looking driving, but they as a cyclist or cyclist are also seen well by oncoming traffic.The unit lux describes the physical strength of the lighting. The unit of measurement indicates how much light falls on a given surface. 10 lux as a minimum requirement but rather meet the requirement to be seen in road traffic, than to see enough yourself. That is why we offer you at Bobshop bicycle lighting with significantly higher lux numbers than required by law. The LEZYNE BICYCLE LAMP POWER HIGH BEAM 500 STVZO, for example, offers an enormous brightness of 500 lux and has a low beam and high beam function.
Bicycles should also be equipped with a tail light with red light in road traffic. This rear light must not be mounted lower than 25 cm above the ground.
In addition to the pure brightness, the light cone or a reasonable illumination of the path is also relevant for good visibility. It has been proven that a round centered circle of light that only illuminates the coming meters in front of the bike is not optimal. It is better to have a uniform and bright light cone that ensures the widest possible distribution of light. Obstacles and imponderables on the bike course do not always occur in front of you, but can also appear from the side. For road cycling, we recommend front lighting with the widest possible beam, as speeds are generally higher. With a light range of up to 90 m, the SIGMA AURA 80 USB bicycle lamp is the perfect companion here.
At Bobshop they also find a selection of helmet lights.
