Helmet light
« on: May 15, 2017, 07:46:07 am »
Can anyone recommend a helmet light (preferably USB rechargeable)?

Want something for long descents/ascents in the dark and multi day rides.

Any thoughts would be gratefully received.

LBS recommended Moon Aerolight.  Anyone had experience of this one?

I use an Exposure Joystick which I'm pretty sure is USB rechargeable. Great light, I use it for offroad as well.


I've got a Moon rear light which I'm also happy with, but don't know the Aerolight

Offroad I'd use a joystick. Not really sure helmet light is useful onroad, but if i did want one Exposure Switch or Link.

On the road they're good for reading signs and letting oncoming drivers know they should dip for bicycles as well.

I've no specific suggestions, but I would stress that a helmet light should be an auxiliary light. As a driver I've been dangerously mislead by seeing a rider with only a helmet light!
