Turn Night Into Day

Days are getting shorter, which means cyclists are more likely to spend some of their time in the dark. Whether you ride to or from work or you try to squeeze in a workout at either end of your day, you’ll be fighting for daylight at some point during your ride.

On the trails, you need lights to see any branches or roots that might be in your path. On city streets, you need lights to be able to see obstacles as well as road conditions. On either, you need lights to be seen – by pedestrians, other cyclists and cars. No matter where you ride, lights help you to see and to be seen.

At Higher Gear, we recognize that lights are more than an accessory. Lights are a safety feature. That’s why we’re always looking to get you the most lumens for your buck. (Lumens are a measure of light produced. The more lumens, the brighter the light.) That’s also why we stock Serfas cycling lights.

Serfas lights up your night ride with the industry’s most technologically advanced safety lights. If you’re a road bike commuter who wants to get home in a safe fashion, Serfas offers tremendous value. For 2016/2017, Serfas is bringing to the table several new models. Let Serfas light the way for you… after all, the night belongs to us.

Scorpius Taillight

Taillights are more for being seen. With more reports of incidents involving cars and bikes, this is especially important on the road, though being visible to other cyclists on the trails is also important for everyone’s safety. Do your part to be visible. A taillight that is bright and that flashes is more likely to catch the attention of tired motorists.

Features include:

  • 30 High Powered Micro LED Ring For Greater Visibility
  • Auto Safe Mode
  • Last Mode Memory
  • USB Remote Switch Compatible
  • Aero Post Compatible
  • Saddle Rail Mount Included
