Lights – NightRider & Crops

See and be seen at night, even on the trails

NiteRider Lumina 650

Niterider’s latest series “Lumina” is certainly for the hardcore night rider. Smaller, brighter and lighter than its predecessor (the popular MiNewt Cordless series), the lights are wireless and USB rechargeable. This means minus the cumbersome cables that were used to connect to battery packs. Lumina 650 is the brightest in the range (aside from the 350 & 500) and the only one that comes with a helmet mount in addition to a handlebar mount. As its name suggest, the light output is 650 in lumens and is bright enough for trail riding at night. On city streets, your presence will certainly be unmistakeable. According to NiteRider, the Lumina 650 will run for 1.5 hours on high, 3:00 on medium and 5:30 on low which is quite a lot of run time for something as bright as this.
