Bike to Work Day is less than two weeks away, and safety should be a priority when planning your bicycle commute. To encourage people to ride to work on Friday, May 20th, and to ride safely, we’re offering one of our favorite front lights for only $10. That’s right- for less than it would cost you to put three gallons of gas in your automobile, you can snag a brand new CatEye EL450 front light, originally $44.99. These powerful little lights can be mounted on nearly all handlebars and helmets, and the OptiCube lens offers 720 candlepower worth of illumination.
If those features aren’t enough to send you running (or rolling) to the nearest Revolution Cycles, you should also know that the CatEye EL450 has three power modes: high, low and flashing. The high mode is fantastic if you ride on the trails at night or in the early morning. The low mode is spectacular if you ride in fairly well lit areas and want to ensure that motorists, pedestrians and other cyclists see you coming. The flashing mode is also great for increasing your visibility, but more importantly, the flashing mode is incredible for spontaneous bicycle dance parties.
Rear lights can add a little something special to your bicycle dance party, too, and having a red rear light is essential for commuting. Available in a variety of flash modes and powers as well, rear lights make you visible to approaching motorists and cyclists when riding at dawn, dusk or anytime in between.
