Getting around by bike may have countless benefits, but it has a glaring downside—riding at night can be absolutely terrifying. Even in well-lit urban areas, night biking is often sketchy at best without a powerful bike light. If you want one of the brightest, it's hard to beat Light and Motion's Taz 1500 Mad Wolf.
This Chinese Festival Is Like 'Frozen' Come to Life
The Mad Wolf has FL-1 Standard-certified 1,500 Lumen output, so it’s seriously bright—brighter than a lot of cars' headlights bright. But if you don’t need that much light, medium and low settings (750 and 350 lumens respectively) are available to turn it down a notch and save battery. Additionally, Light and Motion's special sidelights turn on and off with a dedicated button, so if you’re in a better lit area you won’t have to waste your light.
The Mad Wolf is fully waterproof, so don’t worry if you get rained on. Additionally, its USB-rechargeable battery is good for 1.5 hours run time at its highest setting, and up to 6 hours at its lowest, and, most conveniently, small enough to fit in the palm of your hand.
