 Vision 1 LED Front Light 2012
Vision 1 LED Front Light 2012
This fantastic little light may just be the best addition to your night riding you can make as it a single high powered LED that pushes out 240 lumens on max power!

"It lights up the whole road on my rural commute and is so efficient I rarely need to use it on anything above the first two settings. I think it'd be good for everything short of mountain bike trail racing at night.
The attachment is the best I've seen; it this comes off, you'll have lost half a handlebar!
You have to keep in mind how long you've been using it as the batteries just cut out when exhausted."
Pros: Adjustable, Attractive, Durable, Good Fit, Great Value, High Quality, Rugged

The Flea front light comes packed with features at a great price. Flea lights are smaller than cookies, and with a versatile hook/loop strap mounting system (and belt clip for the rear) they'll mount almost anywhere.

"\this light is so small, light and efficient, it's a must for every ride. I bought mine in mid-winter to use alongside a Hope 1 main light. There are days when I could almost use it on its own.
The main light on high power is slightly brighter than the Hope's lowest setting; the flashing mode cuts through fog, mist and dawn/dusk gloom better, if anything.
The USB charging method works well, but you have to get into the habit of doing it regularly. The velcro binding works anywhere."

"This light weighs nothing, but guarantees you'll be seen. The vlecro attachment means you really can fit it almost anywhere. And the USB charger works efficiently. I recharge mine about once a week after daily commuting. It takes about 2 hours.
I'm thinking of getting another one for the full mobile disco effect."

 Leg Protectors
Leg Protectors
Riders, cyclists, bikers, couriers, rowers, walkers and runners know all about it: when it rains - and it often rains in Britain - then your trousers get wet. After a while your trousers stick to your legs reducing your enjoyment of the outdoor activity to a bare minimum. Originally from the Nether...

"Everything about rainlegs defies logic... but they work. If your thighs and knees are protected, you really can just keep riding. The open nature means plenty of ventilation, so they're comfortacle (cf even the most expensive trousers). They roll up into a belt when not in use, so no wasted pocket space.
I've not yet found a way of looking stylish whilst wearing them, but they're not made for clubbing!"
Pros: Adjustable, Comfortable, Durable, Great Value, High Quality, Lightweight, Rugged, space saving
Cons: Limited Color Choices

A fun little rear light sculpted to look like a tiny space visitor. Two bright LEDs with constant or blinking modes warn motorists of your location. The ALiEN™ is the coolest rear light in the galaxy.

"This light is not subtle... I bought one on the theory that if car drivers are smiling, you're safe.
My granddaughters wanted one each - red 'cos it's scary and green 'cos that's what colour aliens are. We then got a black one for their uncle's Roubaix so everyone knows we're a team (the black with red flashing eyes really is scary!).
They're easy to fir. Work well as a subsidiary light... and if you get one, you'll be on our team too!

"What do you get for the cyclist who has everything - and won't stop telling you...? These socks are the answer.
As socks they tick all the boxes and bear comparison with any mid-price footwear; but as a statement of love and appreciation for Chicago's best-loved reconstituted meat products manufacturer, they brook no rival.
Worn by men with nothing to prove (ie the totally thick, or comfortably blase)!"
Pros: Attractive

"There are days when a good massage after a long ride is neither practical, hygienic, or - in some jurisdictions - legal. For those times, these tights are your answer. Strong, reliable lycra, interesting to don, but great when on, they do what it says on the packet - speed recovery and set you up for a comfortable next day.
And unlike most masseurs, the price is a reasonable, one-off expense; they're easy to maintain, and give the same great result every time you use them."
Pros: High Quality
Cons: Limited Color Choices
