Lumens, burn times, mounting positions, there's a lot to know about lights before you head out on a night ride with your mates. Luckily you've found the video that will tell you everything you need to know about mountain biking lights!

When choosing a light, make sure you have a think about exactly what type of riding you'll be doing, the light thats right for a short commute, won't be the same one that works for some night time singletrack action!

When you've decided which lights you need, spend a good amount of time setting them up. It's no good buying expensive lights, then having them set up so you can't see anything 🤦‍♂️You want your handlebar light pointing well down the trail, with your helmet mounted light right on top of your helmet.

Finally make sure you read the manual for whatever lights you've bought. You need to know exactly how long your lights will last on both high and dimmed settings. Once you've done that, plan your route well, to ensure that you'll be back well before your lights die.
