Your Eyes On What's Ahead
And Their Eyes On You
We’re creatures of habit. And as the sun turns down for winter, the ride goes on. Here, we’ve picked our best recommendations for road and trail lights and peak-performing, high-visibility riding kits to keep you pedaling. Paired together, you’ll see what’s coming, and drivers will see you.
Lights For Road
Big Beams To Budget Buys
With the right lighting setup, we see more and are seen by more. Premium, high-tech pairings like Garmin’s Varia lead the way with innovative features like car radar, camera recording, and auto-adjustment to ambient light. But we also reach for budget blinkers that cast essential lumens into the dark for critical visibility on the road.
Lights For Trail
Illuminate Your Lines
There’s no ambient lighting off-road (unless you’re on a fun full-moon ride). So, you need to ride with high-output lights that deliver illumination of the entire trail. We love riding with at least 1000 lumens and often run a light on the bars and one on the helmet to get maximum coverage of the scene. On the flip side, after you’ve invested in your premium big-beam front light, you can pick up a budget-friendly rear blinker (one of the perks of not being a full-time roadie).

Apparel That Draws Attention
In our fall and winter riding apparel selection, we’ve gathered the best reflective pieces and ones with the most visibility to keep you seen (and performing) while riding through the worst of it.
