Site Mission Statement
This site is dedicated to supplying fantastic lights for biking, orienteering and running - at a very reasonable price when compared to the cost of lights with similiar features and light levels.
I am an individual with a keen interest in several outdoor sports. I love skiing, sailing, walking, paragliding and of course mountain biking. It is true to say I am a keen biker, not the fastest by any means, but I do get a great deal of of enjoyment from riding, especially at night. The reason for the development of this website was my personal purchase of a Magicshine 900 lumen light set and the realisation that spending upwards of £200 on a light set was simply no longer neccessary. I was also extremely impressed by the the usability and build quality of the Magicshine.
I ride regularly with a large and friendly group of bikers, based in Macclesfield on the western fringes of the wonderful Peak District national park. Our night rides take us into Cheshire or more often into hilly Derbyshire, across moors and through forests. A few pictures from some rides are below (click them to zoom). I also ride with friends closer to home, often at weekends.
All the lights which will appear on this site have been rigourously tested in the dark British winter and compared to their more expensive cousins - the intention is to source and provide cost effective and good quality lighting.
