Days are getting shorter which means night is coming sooner. If you enjoy riding your bike in the evening, you need a bike light for safety. I recently purchased the Vont ‘Pyro’ Bike Light Set from Amazon and was pretty impressed.
The bike light set comes with a clear front light, rear red light, 4 rubber straps, (2 of the which are replacements), and 2 USB charging cords. The lights seem to be of good quality and the company says they are waterproof which seems to be the case.
Attaching the lights to the handle bars and seat post are very easy. Slide one end of the rubber strap under the clip on the back of the light, wrap it around the bar and hook it on to the second strap clip. The bike light strap is rather tight so it holds the light in place quite well. Additionally, the lights can be clipped onto clothing, such as a pants pocket or a shirt pocket. To turn the light on, simply push the button either on the top or bottom depending how you mounted the light. The light has 4 settings: high, low, fast strobe and slow strobe.
The bike light seems pretty bright but not as bright as some that I have had. It does brighten up the area, as you can see from the image, but it’s more of a glow. However, the light itself could be seen from a very long distance, and being seen is the main point of the bike light.
The main drawback, as with most rear facing bike lights, is it needs to be secured to the seat post or rear forks. As I have a bag underneath my seat, it secures to the forks and this causes the light to angle up at about 45 degrees rather than aim straight back. It still has plenty or rear-facing light, but is something to keep in mind.
In all, I’m happy with the light set. It’s bright enough to see where I’m riding, more than bright enough to be seen by other bikes and motorists, easy to put on and take off to prevent theft, and small enough to go in my pocket. Really just an all around good light set. You can find this light here on Amazon.
