If you want to ride a bike at night, you need bicycle lights. Gone are the days when kids and adults alike could travel along a dark and narrow road with nothing more than a torch light to guide their way. Trying something like that today would be tantamount to suicide, even if modern times have enabled the streets to be paved with street lights. The point of bicycle lights is to protect the cyclists by allowing everyone to easily spot the cyclist on the road. For added safety, a bicycle is not only equipped with one, but many sources of light emitters in the dark. These include the orange reflectors, white headlights up front as well as the red tail lights at the back.
Possibly the most important light among all is the headlights of your bicycle. This light is supposed to shine the brightest in front of the bike to help the cyclist see better while moving along a dark road. This bright white light will also help the cyclist remain conspicuous home decor to the rest of the drivers on the road, thereby also helping the cyclist remain safe from harm.
The Old Halogen Light
The old school battery headlights used to run on D-cell batteries and while it was shiny with chrome finishing, it did a pretty botched up job lighting up in the dark. Worst of all, these bicycle lights tend to flicker and go out every time you hit a nasty bump on the road. The classic bike used to be lighted by halogen lights and luckily, have since become obsolete.
The New LED Light
Modern day bikes now come equipped with LED lamps that can be divided into three types of lighting mode – high powered single LED, multiple LED and the high powered multiple LED which is a combination of the former and latter. Having said that, all three of these bicycle lights give out consistent beams of light that is sure to announce your presence to everyone on the road.
