    I’ve recently taken up night riding and It’s great, never really understood the attraction until I actually gave it a go.

    Anyway, I initally borrowed a LUPINE light, most of the others I ride with use Hope Vision 4 and Maxx Exposure which are all quite expensive in my book.

    What lights are others using in the reasonable price range catergory?

    I use a Exposure Race front and Red eye rear. I have been massively impressed with both. Front is a 480lumen rear is 80, this have been plenty for the roads and some light track riding.

    On the road the front has to be turned down to low setting or even flash, due to dazzling drivers.

    Have a look on the site or keep and eye out on ebay.

    Cheers for the replies……………

    I went for the bikeray 3, got it for £100. It came boxed with handlebar fitting, helmet fitting, extention lead for battery to light and charger.

    Seems every bit as bright & wide beam as the Vision 4 and battery lasts around 4hrs on full, so I’m pretty happy.

    Went out on Thursday night and used the bikeray lll, seems every bit as good as the Exposure Maxx D and Hope Vision 4.

    Was raining and I fell off 😳 but light continued to work, very bright and nice wide beam.

    At £100 I would defo recommend.

    I will try and take some comparsion photo’s of the lights next time i’m out.
