    Wanting some super bright rear flashers (often ride at dusk) probably 30-40.

    Any recommendations.

    The Poundland rear lights are difficult to beat. ^_^
     
  3. I do like my Moon Nebula, I think it was about £45. Came with a variety of mount options and none of that rubber band nonsense. Good battery life, USB rechargeable and lots of modes. There are videos on their website showing the options.

    C and B seen city slicker or Phaart Bleep from Planet X... I'd have both but I most recently used a FLY6 and a phaart bleep, more light that could ever be needed

    Exposure TraceR. Tiny in size, but packs a big punch with a great pulse mode. Usb rechargeable, quality British engineering and 2 year warranty.... yes, a 2 year warranty :thumbsup:

    You can get them for around £30 if you shop about.

    One of the Smart half watt range. Cheap, robust. Anything ridiculously bright starts to become counter productive.

    Phaart bleep.

    Fit 2...

    Much better than any I've ever seen in poundland, and as bright as needed great value, bright, if your bright you'll get the bright phaart bleep, it's bright did I mention...

    Tape up the seams (advice for any with removable batteries) if you ride in rain.

    C&B Seen is a great rear light - as are the Aldi metal COB lights, but the brackets aren't great. COB LED lights are good for all round visibility.

    After some shopping around last winter I got one of these. It has a crazy mode which is really good for attracting attention/peeing off drivers if you are in traffic. The 1k is good for if you're riding in country lanes, as it can be seen a long way off. Also has a good sized reflector for added protection. I don't think I paid 40 quid for it but this is the first link I could find.
