The Best Bike Headlight for the Money

* Emits 3x the lumens of regular battery lights
* Waterproof design makes it easy to see in the rain
* Amber sidelights make you visible when passing drivers

We don’t want to pinch pennies when it comes to safety, but we’re also not interested in dropping hundreds of dollars on a bike headlight that could double as a lighthouse guide. Luckily, we found a great option in the

at a more-than-fair price.

Perfect for your two-wheel evening commute or a nighttime joyride, this handy headlight makes for safe cycling in the darkest of conditions. When compared to the competition, this bright shining star of the safety world was found to emit more than three times the lumens. In fact, while most disposable battery lights emit less than 100 lumens, this one provides around 350. Now that’s the right way to see, and be seen, in traffic.

The innovative waterproof design lights the way through fog, rainfall, and downpours that make it hard to find your way home. Considering water is one of the main reasons for bike headlights to fail, it appears as though this one will remain reliable through just about any weather condition.

also includes high-intensity amber sidelights that ensure any driver approaching your bicycle will have you in their sights from at least a half-block away.

To really play it safe, we suggest pairing this pick with the CygoLite Hotshot 50, a high-performance tail light. It unleashes an additional 50 lumens of eye-catching flashing output, ensuring 360 degrees of unprecedented protection. So while you can’t put a price on your well-being, you can at least rest assured you’re getting great value for your money and lighting the way for a safe ride home.
