The review process is over and these lights are getting 2 thumbs up from Blogger Bill for sure. First up is the NiteRider Lumina 550:
As with all Luminas, the Lumina 550 features a lightweight body combined with increased thermal properties, ensuring a brighter, longer lasting LED. Luminas feature a newly designed handlebar mount making sure it remains rock solid whether on the trail or pavement.
Affordable, high output light
Ride safely with daylight flash mode!
Perfect for helmet mounting
New rock solid handlebar mount
Light weight self contained light
This light is outstanding and will provide great illumination for any night time riding that you will be doing. I didn't get a chance to ride any trails at night with the light but I feel confident that it would be adequate for some night time bike rides.
Next up is the greatest rear blinker light that I have had the opportunity to use - TheNiteRider Sentinel 40:
The Sentinel™ 40 has a powerful 2 watt LED, 5 modes, is USB rechargeable and has a brand new safety feature, Laser Lanes! The Laser Lanes mode is designed to project ultra bright laser lines on the ground, giving the rider their own virtual lane.
The Sentinel 40 complies with FDA standard for lasers, notice No. 50, 2007
Highly visible laser lanes
Ultra bright 40 lumen output
Laser and tail light in the one light!
Group Ride Mode – be seen without annoying fellow cyclists
The new standard in tail light safety
The Laser Lanes are awesome and I noticed that when I used this instead of my regular rear blinker I seemed to get a lot more clearance from vehicles passing from behind and that, my friend, is never a bad thing! Another nice this is the Group Ride Mode where it does not blind the rider behind you.
To get a look at these awesome lights first hand stop by the shop today from 10-8!
* Looking to do a Century? Set aside 9/20 for Tom's Century Ride - Route to be determined (but I am pushing for a South Route) More information to come! * Looking to do a Pittsburgh Dirty Dozen type ride? Set aside 10/4 for the DD716 which is going to be a punishing 60 or so mile route over & through some of Erie Counties biggest hills and prettiest countryside. Route is being analyzed so more will follow. This is a no joke ride that will start and finish at Chestnut Ridge and will be a "controlled" roll to each climb where you will be set lose to challenge yourself and those around you!
