Head-Mounted vs. Bar-Mounted Bike Lights

Trail riding by day can be treacherous enough—imagine if you couldn't see dangers around you. At night you need a good bicycle light set up to keep you safe. A combination of head-mounted and bar-mounted lights is ideal.

• The bar-mounted light is good for illuminating the road in front of you, allowing you to see hazards
• The head-mounted light moves with you as you turn, giving you the ability to see farther down the trail
