Exposure Tracer rear light giveaway

exposure rear light

There’s a staggering array of excellent rear lights to choose from this winter, and with prices starting at about £7 for a good powerful model there really is little excuse to compromise.

At around £40, the Exposure TraceR rear light is by no means the cheapest, but it has a number of attractive features including USB charging, wide angle visibility, 3 levels of brightness and power indicator. Furthermore, the ‘DayBright’ pulse pattern is designed to cut through the distractions of busy roads and visual noise in modern motoring and is visible from over a kilometre away, even in sunlight.

Best of all, we have one to give away. Simply leave us a comment below and we’ll pick a winner next week.

Bicycle rear lights and the law

One is required, to show a red light, positioned centrally or offside, between 350mm and 1500mm from the ground, at or near the rear, aligned towards, and visible from, behind. If capable of emitting a steady light, it must be marked as conforming to BS3648, or BS6102/3, or an equivalent EC standard. If capable of emitting only a flashing light, it must emit at least 4 candela… the light shown by the lamp when flashing shall be displayed not less than 60 nor more than 240 equal times per minute and the intervals between each display of light shall be constant.

ETA cycle insurance

Ethical cycle insurance

Check your small print for so-called ‘new-for-old’ replacement – many insurers use the term, but if your bicycle is more than a few years old, they devalue it severely. This means you are left out of pocket when you come to replace it.

With ETA cycle insurance, however old the bike, if it’s stolen you get enough to buy a new model. Furthermore, every cycle insurance policy you buy from us helps support the work of the ETA Trust, our charity campaigning for a cleaner, safer transport future. No wonder The Good Shopping Guide judges us to be Britain’s most ethical insurance company.

    You can never have enough light. Especially if you’re commuting after dark.

    Having just returned to cycling, my old lights are well due for replacement. This one would be ideal. I especially like the USB charging, brilliant idea, no batteries to replace and no damaged lamp due to leaking dead batteries.

    Belter of a light, I’ve seen people on the commute with it from both my bicycle and when I’m out in the car. Great bit of kit and rather jealous… the flash format is really eye catching!

    Remember when it was getting dark. It started to rain. It was cold. Only to find when you turned on your rear cycle light the battery let you down just when you needed it most. No longer.

    At this time of year. with the sun low in the sky and wet roads causing glare and drivers willing to drive at speed when they can’t see, a good bright rear light is essential even during the day and especially in the hour after sunrise and the hour before sunset.

    I would go further, with many cyclists forced onto the pavement, and fine cyclists who text or phone whilst cycling on the pavement, because I’ve seen so many old or disabled pedestrians having to dodge them. As a cyclist myself, if I have to use the pavement, I cycle slowly, considerately and with a bell for a gentle warning plus a loud horn for idiot motorists and as an emergency if one is compromised.
