Lezyne Lights

The clocks have changed, it’s getting darker outside, and more people are coming into the shop looking for the perfect lights for their bike.

We have a great range of Knog and Lezyne lights. From the little Frog Strobes to the powerful Blinders in different shapes, sizes and colours! Brightness is measured in lumens, and we have lights ranging from 2.5 to 550 lumens. Usually, the more powerful they are, the more expensive. Most of our lights are USB rechargeable so you can plug them into your computer or phone charger, eliminating the need for batteries and therefore being more environmentally friendly.  

So what lights should you get? If you use your bike for commuting you will need powerful lights to allow other road users to see you so Blinder lights will be your best choice. We have Knog Blinder 1 LED (£21.99 each, £41.99 for the pair), Knog Blinder 4 LED (£34.99), Knog Blinder Road (£46.99), and Knog Blinder ARC 5.5 with a powerful 550 lumens (£91.99). In Lezyne the most powerful ones we have are Macro Drive with 350 lumens (£54.99 for front lights, ££84.99 for the pair).

If you need bike lights for the kids or if you are not doing much cycling at night, something simple will do the trick. You can get Knog Frog Strobe (£9.99) or Lezyne Femto Drive (£12.99 each or £21.99 for the pair).

Whatever lights you choose, make sure you get yours quickly if you don’t have any. It is illegal to ride a bike without lights when it’s dark outside and you face getting a fine.

I just got a pair of the Knog Blinder 4 LED in silver and couldn’t be happier. They have 4 flash modes, are visible from 800m away, are USB rechargeable and have 50 hours of burntime on flash. They look pretty nifty too!

Swing by to get yours today. We can go over all our options to ensure you get the perfect bike light.
