Lots of lumens at heavily discounted prices in the Black Friday sales

If you intend riding through winter, particularly if its for your commute, then you are going to need lights – and there are plenty available at specially discounted prices for Black Friday.

It’s a legal requirement to use a light if riding in the dark, and by and large bike lights will fall into two categories – lights to be seen with, and lights to see with.


We’ve rounded up the best Black Friday deals on lights in both categories, so you don’t have to. Looking for some new lights? Then look no further…
