Faster mountain bike night riding
Mountain bike night riding certainly has it’s risks, but to ride just as fast as day you only need to follow the Golden Rule of Mountain Biking: ‘Your wheels will follow your eyes’.
But what your eyes can’t see, your bike can’t follow, so ask yourself this question: Are you held back by under-powered lights?
Your mountain bike lights should illuminate the trail directly in front of you (bar mounted light), as well as light up the trail further than you need to see when riding at high speed (helmet mounted). Only then with an unrestricted view, will you be able to fully scan the trail ahead and keep pace with day. (Chris’ light system)
