If you're returning to cycling after a very long hiatus, you'll be pleased to know that bike lights have come a long way this century! The rechargeable, LED light is now king, and unlike the notorious Ever Ready lights that were popular in the '70s and '80s, you don't need to spend a fortune on batteries to get your feeble beam to work for a couple of hours.

If the option for Financing or one or more of the monthly terms are not shown, then unfortunately you are not eligible to apply for that finance type at this time. Pay in 3 instalments The Cerberus light does the business at the far end of the bike with one rear LED and two side COB LED strips powered by a rechargeable 500mAh Li-Po battery. Again the flush side button is awkward to find in gloves, but it toggles through two solid and three flashing modes with a “press until you’re happy with the brightness”‘Variable Lumen System’ setting too. With the 50Lm max in the solid modes, 100Lm in the standard flash modes and a brutally bright 150Lm max in the Daylight Flash mode, no one has an excuse for not seeing you. Short Press: turns light on (light off) / switch between output options for current mode (light on). Side visibility is an afterthought for most light manufacturers, but the Moon Cerberus supplies genuine 270-degree coverage and is as bright from the left or right as it is from the rear. Instead of a curved lens or cutout that is supposed to spread the light from rear-facing LEDs sideways, the Cerberus has three separate LED strips with two of them dedicated to sideways light. For those heart-in-mouth moments when you're passing a junction that's full of dozy drivers ready to SMIDSY you, it's game changing.

Long Hold: activates the VLS mode and ramps the output from min to max mode slowly, release the button at the desired outputThe Cerberus has a two button interface with both buttons on the top left side of the taillight. The power button is on the top while the one below it is primarily used for the VLS feature. Aside from debossed icons on the buttons, there isn’t any tactile or material difference to them. Because of this, we found the buttons difficult to use with gloves as they are hard to differentiate from the taillight housing. Between the buttons is also an indicator LED that is used to show when charging is active as well as indicate low battery. As with other rechargeable taillights, the battery indicator is subtle and easy to overlook. There is an “auto safe” mode that extends the runtime when the battery is low, but you’ll still need to remember to charge the light regularly to avoid running out of battery while riding. FEATURES

As with other Moon Sport devices the USB Type-C charging cable is bright yellow to match the brand logo. MOUNTING The light comes with rugged construction with an IPX7 water and dust resistant certification. In the Box VARIABLE LUMEN SYSTEM: This is a feature Moon Sport has incorporated into most of their lights and allows you to adjust the output of each mode independently. Once activated, the light ramps up from minimum to maximum power for that mode (note it flashes at each extreme to indicate a max/min has been reached) slowly until you select the desired level. The chosen output value overrides the factory defaults allowing for full customization. Although it’s a cool feature to see, we imagine most users won’t utilize it as the factory defaults are more than sufficient.

With the VLS feature, each mode can also be adjusted between the minimum and maximum settings pertaining to the mode. Constant modes are limited to 5-50 lumen while flash and steady flash are limited to 10-100 lumen. Daytime flash can be adjusted to the full range of 10-150 lumen which can push the runtime all the way to 140 hours in the lowest 10 lumen setting. Although the three COB LED design of the Cerberus improves side visibility, due to the narrow profile of the taillight side visibility is limited to around 270°. If you’re looking for better side visibility, larger lights like the NiteRider Bullet 200 should be considered. Also while the COB LED design looks more visually attractive and is visible during daytime, the beam is less focused than lights like the Bontrager Ion RT or Light and Motion Vya Switch which means the Cerberus isn’t as visible from longer distances. THE VERDICT Moon’s Cerberus, rear light, comes with 3 multi-directional COB LEDs which provides a large, wide beam that produces 270-degrees of visibility. This is ideal for commuters aiming to stay seen amongst multiple lanes of traffic.

Lights for riding off-road at night need to be much brighter, and thanks to modern technology you can get front lights that will illuminate a trail almost like it's daytime. Trail lights will often have beams advertised at well over 1,000 lumens, sometimes as high as 5,000. Chain reaction Cycles and CRC are trading names of Wiggle Ltd (In Administration) registered in the United Kingdom at 1000 Lakeside, Suite 310, Third Floor N E Wing, Portsmouth, Hampshire, PO6 3EN, Any light worth buying nowadays is rechargeable via USB (we only recommend rechargeable lights in this guide other than our dynamo option) so run time is less important for most cyclists nowadays; but of course, if you plan on doing multi-day adventures without access to electricity very often, you'll want lights with decent battery life unless you go down the dynamo route. The Moon Cerberus has a three-sided COB (chip on board) design that supplies outstanding side visibility, an innovative hinge system that makes it compatible with all shapes of seatpost, and a dimmer function that allows you to fine-tune your output and battery life. You should also consider what environments you will be riding in and how much power you'll need (more on that in a minute). If you only ride on roads and never really stray onto unlit paths, you won't need to splash out on any front lights that are suitable for trail use. The sheer number of lumens isn't everything, as beam shapes have a big influence on how dazzling lights can be, but you're unlikely to need a front light with more than 800 lumens as the max setting if you only ride in town; even then, the highest setting will rarely need to be deployed.Consider what settings you will need. Most modern bike lights come with a number of steady, flashing and pulse modes, so go for some that have options if you're not sure what is best. A popular combination is a steady front light with a rear light on flash mode in urban environments; although, use your judgement to decide on how bright your rear light needs to be if you're running it on flash. Dazzling drivers and other cyclists doesn't really improve anyone's safety, so get a second opinion from friends or relatives if you're in doubt about how bright your beams are to others. The rubber pad that sits against the seatpost conceals and waterproofs the USB port and does a good job: the force of the rubber band squeezing it to the seatpost ensures it's always tightly plugging the USB port. It's a shame it's removable, though, because in a house with children, any interesting-looking thing like that tends to disappear never to be seen again.
