Cateye Bicycle Lights, Computers and Accessories
The safest way to be seen when riding a bicycle is to equip it with bike lights. The only lights worthy of putting on your bike should be Cateye. Founded in 1964 in the heart of Japan, Osaka, Cateye has been leading the forefront of bike lights with their innovative and cutting edge technologies. Cateye continues to bring form and function, with safety in mind to cycling, just has they have been for nearly a half century.
When shopping for bike lights there are many choices, but two places that need attention are the front of your bike, so you can see the road and the rear of the bike, so others can see you.
Options for front facing, or headlights, for your bike vary wildly in features and price. If you commute long distances in the dark, you'll have to give up a smaller, sleeker style in favor of a larger one to have longer battery life. If you lock your bike up outside, check for models that offer quick release options too.
Rear facing lights usually attach to your seat post and are red in color. Some can be mounted vertically or horizontally, depending on how much clearance you have. The most important features to look for are how it flashes and if it's waterproof. Because the desire is to be seen by motorist while they come up behind you, the option to run different blinking patterns will help them see you faster and avoid any accidents.
Cateye even offers a matched set of front and rear lights designed to shed light on where you are going and a sleek, wide and low profile rear light. Don't get caught at night not being able to see, utilize Cateye products to illuminate the road in front and be seen from behind.
