BIKESETC9.5 OUT OF 5
WHAT THEY SAY: Swift and Sabre delivers everyday reliable performance in an economical ultra-compact set.
WHAT WE SAY: As the Sabre name indicates, the rear light of this combo, delivers 80 lumens as well as 180 degree visibility. The six main mode options (three constant, three flash) deliver run times of between one and half hours on maximum output and up to 10.5 hours on rapid flash. With a maximum of 300 lumens blaring out from the Swift at the front, these will get you home whether you’re riding on poorly lit roads and on lamppost-lined urban streets. Intriguingly, there’s even a ‘walk’ mode option that gives you a 20-lumen output for 27 hours. We’re not sure a set of cleats would last that long, though!
VERDICT: A decent runtime and big output means Niterider should work for most rides.
