Green Oil Eco Rider Deluxe set

£44.99 from Green Oil

Lezyne KTV2 Drive

£37.99 pair or free with Cycling UK gift membership

These little lights emit up to 180 lumens from two bright LEDs and have integral USB chargers, so there are no cables to get lost or – like the fairy lights in the attic – tangled. They strap to the bike or clip to clothing.
