Less money for more light

Most lights for city riding only keep drivers aware of your presence, but don't do anything to illuminate the road or its hazards. As an introductory-level light from NiteRider, the Mako 100 Light is a small but powerful light addition to your commute. See the road, and let motorists see you.

Like all NiteRider lights, the Mako 100 uses a Cree LED bulb to broadcast a wide, 100 lumen beam of light across the road. It features two solid settings and a flash setting to let you dial in the output that you need for the evening. And since lateral visibility is just as important as frontal visibility, NiteRider installed 'gills' on both sides of the light body to emit red light on every setting. The light also comes equipped with an adjustable handlebar clamp that accommodates bars up to 31.8mm in diameter.

The NiteRider Mako 100 Light comes with two AA batteries and weights approximately 165g.

Economical Nite Safety

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Commuting on a budget can be done safely and the NiteRider Mako 100 makes it possible. The first night out with this light came with compliments from a couple of drivers who exclaimed that the strobe alerted them very well, of course most here in Salt Lake City are not use to seeing cyclist at night like the Seattle area. It definitely isn't for long rides but highly recommended for those short evening commutes.


Quick update.

I use this light 5 to 6 days a week, 10 miles each way during the past two months of commuting to the Backcountry office and it just plain rocks for commuting. I've purchased some lighting systems that cost $200+ in the past and haven't had the positive results like this economy light. The strobe is awesome, the high beam gives me ample lighting and safety when needed and the longevity of the batteries is better then the EverReady Bunny. Been using it in heavy rain to sub-zero slush, snow and ice and not one problem.

Yea, it's a budget light that provides! Proof is in the pudding and the legs.

Great for a bar bike

This light is a well built and inexpensive light, but limited in its power. It would be great for trips around own or short-distance commuting, but for night rides and longer commutes, I would recommend something in the 500-700 lumen range. For the price, it works well.
