NiteRider is a brand that has stood the test of time. They’ve supported endurance events and trail access throughout the years with a commitment to quality products and good company values.

If you like bright lights and the latest technology, NiteRider has you covered with the NiteRider Pro 2200 and the 3600. But the story this year is about putting rechargeable headlights and tail lights on every bike on the road, day or night. The greatest risk to commuters is not being seen by drivers and getting hit from behind or opposing vehicles coming in from lots, making left turns or opening their doors. Lights help this situation by significantly increasing visibility day or night and helping drivers not only see cyclists but also judge their speed.

We can lament the current state of distracted drivers all we want but becoming more visible is one of the few things we can take action on today.

Take a look at some of NiteRider’s 2017 lineup highlights below.

The NiteRider Swift 350 packs a decent punch with a light output of 350 lumens and is USB rechargeable.

    The tail light discussed is the Sabre 50. However, the photo’s shown are for the Solas 100 and 150. Also, these lights (Solas shown in the photos) does not seem to have the easy strap-on ability as mentioned in the review. They only seem to have a bracket to clip onto a belt or buckle of a seatback or backpack.
