Britain, every year records 19,000 cyclists injured during accidents, and around 3,000 of them sustain serious injuries leading to a rider’s death. Most of the causalities include adults, who move on roads without proper lights on their bikes.
A bike light’s purpose is not only to guide the path in front, but it also makes other drivers aware of a biker’s presence. Around two-thirds of all fatal accidents occur in junction points of urban areas. So, it becomes necessary to adopt high beam lightning system on your bike before moving out in dark.
Next presented are some easy and effective methods for making your presence felt on the road.
Powerful Front Light
Halogen and LED powered bulbs deliver strong bright light. A high power front light ensures that a cyclist remains aware about pedestrians. New LEDs are available with flashing options, which not only illuminates the track, but also enhances visibility to other drivers on the road. MagicShine bicycle front lights are best in class with flexible user controls. MagicShine Eagle 600 OLED, one of the best front bicycle light available at £79.99is a pretty good option for biking enthusiasts, who love to ride late in the night.
Dynamo Powered Lights on Wheel
Installing dynamo powered lightning system on both wheels can add a feature to rider’s safety. These lights get charged using a tires motion and the rider need not to worry about battery problems. These lights are available in a variety of high visibility colors at reasonable prices in local markets.
Rear light on the Bike
A red light on rear of bike must blink regularly so that any following vehicle can correctly judge a cyclist’s position. The purpose of backlight is to make aware surrounding vehicles about a biker’s presence on the road. An alert driver will just slow down the vehicle’s speed while approaching near to a bike. Most riders choose to use rear bike lights powered by AA batteries. AA standard batteries have limited life, not suitable for mountain biking. The MagicShine rear bike lights offer high light output and a long running time.
A reflective vest or jacket makes cyclist highly visible to motorist during dark and foggy nights. Imagine a scenario when something drops down from cyclist’s pocket. At this stage, cyclist needs to get off a bike and pick it up quickly. Wearing a reflective jacket over the chest makes improves visibility and provides due safety while fixing an issue. The straps on the jacket are so designed that they start to appear moving with rider’s motion during pedaling.
Helmet mounted front light grabs much more attention of vehicle’s passing by. Helmet lights direction changes with the head movement of a rider. A little red rear light on the backside of the helmet helps to pass a sign of caution to following vehicles. A flashing light on the helmet is much more noticeable to car drivers than a steady light.
