Knog Blinder Bike Lights, £34.99 each

Alison says: The Knog Frog is one of the most copied light designs in existence, thanks to the clever silicone design and bright colours. But the cool folk at Aussie brand Knog would rather set new trends than bask in past glories, so they’ve created these new Blinder lights. They feature four LEDs and pump out 80 lumens for the front and 44 for the back. The lights are USB rechargeable, come in five cute designs: crosses, stripes, circles, arrows and standard (four small round lights) and are visible up to 800m away.

And now for the technical part: each light weighs a mere 35g; there are five light settings – steady, fast flash, organic flash 1, organic flash 2 and eco-flash; the charge lasts for three hours on steady and on the eco-flash setting lasts for 50 hours for the front light and 80 hours for the back. A silicone strap with stainless steel clip attaches the light to front bars and rear seat post of 22mm to 35mm.

They’re also completely waterproof – the folk at Knog proved this by dropping one into a pint of beer before downing it. See, told you they were cool.
