Brakes are extremely important, so are helmets, but for riding through the city streets at night, nothing is more important than being seen. Cars, buses, dump trucks, and prostitutes can plow right into a cyclist if they can't see him. That's why setting your bike up with a high end lighting system like the Light Motion Urban 350 Plus Vis Micro Combo light Kit is vital for navigating the streets at night. The 350 can be mounted on your handlebars or on your helmet with light Motion's durable mounting system. The 350 is extremely visible and features amber side lighting for a full 180 degrees of visibility. The precisely engineered lens distributes light evenly over a field designed to help the cyclist see both close up and far away. There's also a battery life indicator, so you know when a recharge is needed, and the IP67 waterproof rating means the 350 can be fully submerged under a meter of water for a full 30 minutes in case you're caught in a torrential downpour. For the folks behind you, there's the Vis micro taillight. A precision manufactured lens casts the Vis' light over the widest area possible to make it function like a much larger light than it actually is. The light is tuned to stay bright right up to the moment its battery dies, so it won't taper off slowly. With a full 12 hours of run time, you have plenty of time to recharge before your next commute.
