Ok, so the lighter nights are soon going to be coming to a close, and im just wondering what offroad performance lights you use? I'll have a budget of £200 max, but how do you get around the fact that the light may run out of battery, as most post£100 lights are run off rechargable battery packs??

Thanks

    Simple to answer..........................Lumicycle

    P.S. and if you don't think that either of the available batteries is going to last long enough, buy a spare. They're not too expensive and they're very light.
  • I've got both AY-UP and Lumicycle

    AY-UP probably better cos the batteries are tiny for the run time. Light units again are small for the power output.

    For £200, I'd probably go for the Joystick Max and the piggyback battery pack:

    Really nice kit for the money, and it gives a good upgrade plan (buy a handlebar mounted light later)
