Knog’s Blinder Road Twin Pack light set is a great all-round light system for a commuter. The front light emits a decent 200 lumen whilst the rear emits 70 lumen - impressive for a rear bike light.
This makes the Blinder Road light set bright enough for any urban night riding.
The front and rear bike lights come with an impressive number of light modes. Burn times vary depending on light mode but the front can reach up to 6 hours of charge whilst the rear Blinder will give you up to 20 hours.
Both Blinder bike lights are very compact and and lightweight - ideal for weight weenies. Also both lights are USB rechargeable saving you money on batteries, and they’ll charge up in 5 hours from flat - so you can charge at work too.

Bike lights are vital accessories which attach to your handlebars, seatpost, helmet, bag or jersey. Their function is simple – to help you to see and be seen.
Who needs bike lights?
Everyone needs bike lights! It’s a legal requirement to use front and rear lights on your bike between sunset and sunrise, but they are also useful when visibility is poor – in the fog for example.
What are the choices?
Light technology is ever evolving and the choice is enormous. Always think “the brighter the better” and look for a higher lumen output when choosing. There are lights that run on batteries or beams which can be recharged via plug or a handy USB socket (great for topping up at work). Some lights have battery packs and most have a selection of modes to choose from. You’ll definitely need the brightest lights if you ride wooded trails as you’ll really need to see where you’re going!
What should I buy with them?
Spare batteries are handy if your bike runs on these, as is a charger if it’s rechargeable. Spare mounts are always useful, especially if you have more than one bike. A helmet mount points the beam where you’re looking, rather than the direction your bike is pointing.
Don’t get caught out – a spare back up light is a great purchase in case your ride goes on longer than anticipated or the lights go out earlier than expected.
