Holiday Gift Guide

Lights

Light & Motion Urban 200

Light & Motion’s Urban 200 is a compact all in one unit that mounts to your bike easily and weighs just slightly over 100 grams. Built in the USA on historic Cannery Row in Monterey, California, the sleek powerful light puts out plenty of lumens to light up the street on the bike commute home. With yellow indicators on the sides, the Urban 200 will alert drivers to your presence not only head on, but also to your left and right. USB rechargeable, the Urban 200 will last for two and a half hours on high.

MSRP: $99

Blackburn Flea Combo

The Blackburn Flea lights continue to be a favorite for us at roadbikereview, and returns for a third consecutive Holiday Gift Guide. The compact size, ease of use, and recharge-ability by USB or solar keeps these lights as some of the most used year round. Plenty bright to be seen, these lights mount to anything, handlebars, helmets, and bags.

MSRP: $55 (Front and Rear Package)

Available in several bright colors, the 10 ft. flexible light tube strand can be wrapped around your bike in whichever creative way you want. Attached to a weatherproof battery, the lights run on 2AA batteries. BikeGlow has 3 modes – steady, slow flashing, and fast flashing modes. Be seen!
