Readers’ Choice: 10 Best Lights for Mountain Biking at Night

1. NiteRider Lumina Micro 750

The NiteRider Lumina 750 takes the #1 spot on our list by a landslide, for the second year in a row. But here’s the catch: the Lumina 750 no longer exists in the NiteRider line, having been replaced with the Lumina Micro 750 for 2017/18.

The changes in the Micro 750 might not sound significant one by one, but taken collectively the upgrades to this light are astonishing. The lumen count and runtime stay the exact same in the newer model, but NiteRider managed to shave 42g off the weight, making it the second lightest light on this list. (And second by just 9g.)

Not only that, NiteRider simultaneously dropped the price of this light–the latest model costs $35 less than it did last year. Even compared to the more affordable Lumina 750 Boost from last year (which only had a 40-minute run time on high), the new Micro 750 still cuts $15 off the MSRP.

The astonishingly-low $65 price tag makes the Micro 750 the second most affordable light on this list, second only to the Cheap Amazon Light discussed above.

While the Pro 1400 Race appears dated compared to other lights on this list, it’s clear where NiteRider invested its energy over the last year: in updating the perennial favorite Lumina 750. NiteRider’s dominance in the mountain bike light market (the brand earned the highest number of votes by a landslide, with 4x the votes of second-place Light and Motion) appears very well-deserved.
