Great idea!

Using this for very early morning commutes and i’ve got to say it’s a great bit of kit! Well made and good quality. Gives me a bit more piece of mind that I can be seen. Not worn it without a rucksack but with one it’s not bulky and easy on / off.

Commute to work 30 mile round trip, Have attached the light to my backpack, you get seen and I feel safe in the pitch dark at 6am. Great price in the sale also added the £5 voucher. What not to like. Good communication and delivery from TredZ

Most visible rear light

A change of office pushed my bike commute up to about an hour each way, much of it on unlit narrow country lanes so I felt I needed more than just my usual bright small lens frame mounted lights. The large centre lamp is at eye level for motorists approaching from behind but what really makes it conspicuous is the 4 fibre optics that make up the large cross that wraps around back or backpack. Fitting is a bit fiddly with poppers to fasten the various straps- I would have preferred push-together buckles but at least this arrangement gives plenty of options and size adjustments. Charging took 4 hours and has given me several trips so far. Build quality not the best but nothing that will cause a problem. Recommend you turn on the main light and X before you wear it so you know what everything is doing or you'll look like a mobile disco as you cycle off! Worth paying if you really want to be seen.

Rear Lights Buying Guide

 

Rear Lights Buying Guide

While front lights can reach up to and above 1000 Lumens, at the rear anything from 20 to 100 lumens is plenty. Multiple rear lights are the best way to be seen from behind, especially when on the flash mode.

With one attached to the seatpost it can be good to have another on the chainstay, backpack or helmet. 20 Lumen would be sufficient for commuting in urban areas. For those living in darker areas or riding on dimly lit roads, a rear light closer to 100 lumens would be best.

Take a look at our Rear light comparison tool to help you choose the right bike light for your needs.


Wearable lights

Extra visibility

If you commute on lit-up city streets, rear lights are more than essential. To have a second light high up and in the eye-line of drivers and other road users is a very good idea. With reflective clothing and/or accessories like backpack covers and jackets, adding a wearable rear light will really make you stand out. Most backpacks will have a loop or somewhere to secure a light, using the strap or mount that come with the light.

Usually not a concern for MTB riders, nothing extravagant is needed for the rear, just so the rider can be seen on any road or path that might lead to the trail.
