Light the way.
If you're in the habit of choosing to ride with the stars instead of the sun, you know that making sure you can see where you're going requires a little more planning than it does during the day. Light & Motion's Urban 850 Trail light was designed so that you don't have to stop doing what you love just because the sun goes down — or hasn't come up yet — and at 850 lumens, it claims to be the most powerful single LED bike light available right now.
You never know what types of animals you may be sharing your bike lane or trail with at night, which is why it's helpful that the Urban 850 includes red lighting on each side for added peripheral visibility. Light & Motion uses a light beam pattern meant to maximize riders' depth perception, and they developed a smooth spot beam to help you see clearly on trails. The light can be submerged in up to one meter of water for 30 minutes, which, if you're not planning on riding underwater, means that a rain shower won't hurt the Urban 850.
Take this light to the trails, the road, or through the city on your commute home, just know that on "high" the battery will last continuously for about one and a half hours. You can get up to six hours of battery life if the light is just on low, and it comes with a USB cable for easy on-the-go recharging. In addition to a regular handlebar mount, the Urban 850 also includes a helmet mount and a GoPro mount, and it adds about 121g to your frame.
