Garmin Varia RTL515 Rearview Radar Rear Bike Light
Our choice for bike safety rearlight
Bike lights for every bike type | Large selectionBicycle lights are one of the most important parts of your bike. This may sound strange, because you can just use your bike without bike lights. For your own safety though, good bike lights on your city bike, e-bike, road bike or mountain bike should not be missing. A good bike light not only helps you see the road better yourself, it is perhaps even more important that your fellow road users can see you well. That's how you avoid accidents!

When should I turn on my bike lights?
There are quite a few legal requirements when it comes to bikw lights. If you do not comply with these, you risk a fine. Which makes sense, because without proper bicycle lighting, you are a danger to yourself and others. Roughly speaking, you must have your lights on between sunset and sunrise. You just must not inconvenience other road users with your bike lights. The official rules differ from country to country, but generally include:
- Between sunset and sunrise, you must have bike lights on your bike.
- In fog or other situations where you have poor visibility, bike lights should also be lit.
- Your rear light must be red and your front light must be white or yellow.
- Your bike lights must be clearly visible, i.e. not obstructed by a bike basket or pannier bag.
- You may have a maximum of 1 front light and 1 rear light.
- Bicycle lights must not flash.
What does the amount of lumens mean when it comes to my bike lights?
The number of lumens you often see on bike lights is a number that indicates the brightness of your headlight. This number says everything about the power of a bike light. You can divide the number of lumens into different categories, namely bike lights to:
How long will my bike lights' battery last?
How long your bike lights last has to do with the power source you use to power them. For example, you have headlights and rear lights that are AA or AAA battery-powered. In addition, you also have bicycle lights and rear lights with an internal battery, which is rechargable. On average, battery-operated bike lights last between 50 and 100 hours. Lights with an internal battery don't last as long on average, but don't need new brand batteries every time. So think about how long you will need your lights and how often you would like to recharge them. Important tip: always switch off your lights when you are no longer cycling. This is often forgotten!
Why should I use daytime running lights?
Daytime running lights are becoming increasingly popular. This type of lighting comes in handy when the cycle path is on the carriageway, without a separation. In such a case, it is very convenient to have good lighting. Daytime running lights are very bright and flash irregularly, making you extra visible to car drivers following behind.
