Advanced Guide: Bicycle Lights Comparison Chart

Bike headlight technology has recently made huge leaps. The great news is the lumen output-to-dollar ratio is about twice as much today compared to just two short years ago. We carry bike lights from industry-leading brands like Cygolite, Lezyne, Light & Motion and NiteRider. Our user-friendly Bike Headlight Buyer's Guide lets you quickly compare features and actual photography of the beam patterns (all taken from the same conditions) to help in your selection.

Need more information?  Check out our Basic Guide To Bike Lights for a full description of all these features and technology.
