How Many Lumens Are Enough For Night Riding? ‘Cause We Love This Micro 900

Today, you’ll see plenty of articles saying you need 2,000 lumens, minimum for trail riding at night, with plenty of folks out there creating little mini suns with 5,000 lumen setups. We’re pretty good with the 900 lumen output of the NiteRider Micro 900 ($75). I’ve only been out for about 1.5 hours at full strength, so I can’t confirm whether it hits that mark. There’s no remote to adjust light strength without taking hands off the bars, which we happily accept as a tradeoff for the light only costing us $75. • BUY $75Other lights we likeAs we mentioned, the Light and Motion Rando 500 is a nice little addition to boost the lumens and to give a second light source.
