Sadly, one of the darker bike-related statistics is the significant rise of serious injuries to cyclists in recent years with over 3,400 incidents in 2014.
Cyclists are increasingly looking to safety equipment to help protect them so the right type of lights are high on the purchase list. For this reason, highly powerful, low wattage LEDs are in high demand, but if the design is incorrect – it adds to the problem not solves it.
In every case of fatality, lighting is reviewed by the authorities to determine any contributory factor. For this reason, ensuring product conformance is critical.
