NiteRider’s 2014 Product Line up: Something for everyone
For 2013, Niterider has expanded their lineup to include compelling options at nearly every price point. This very complete lineup includes everything from the “I just turned the Sun on” Pro 3600 DIY light to the small blinky Lightning Bug 100 USB.
The Pro line is an often go-to light for those riding trails or racing off road at night. This year, the Pro series grows from three to five. Still sitting a the top is their Pro 3600 DIY monster. New to the Pro series however, is the Pro 2200 Dual Beam Race at $399.99. It comes with a four cell race battery to help keep it lighter. The Pro 1200 is the other new addition, running $269.99.
Make the jump for the rest of the 2014 updates.
For the past year, my personal commuter light has been a Lumina 650. Its rock solid, blindingly bright, and still has great battery life after a decent amount of use. It’s great to see Niterider giving this line up some new additions, as well as increasing the overall output of the lights. Sitting at the bottom of the Lumina series is the new super compact Lumina Micro 220. This smaller, lighter, yet still bright enough light comes in at a very affordable $69.99. The other addition to this series is certainly innovated. The new Lumina Flare combines a 650 lumens headlight with a Stinger like taillight for what looks to be a near perfect helmet mounted light. Retail for the ranger topper is $169.99.
One of, if not the most, popular segment for bicycle lighting is the under $50 commuter market. Niterider has stepped up the game here as well. Their new Lightning Bug outputs 100 lumens and includes USB recharging for $49.99. The Stinger tail light has also received the lovable USB upgrade and can be had for $34.99. The Mako series is still present, and (one of my personal favorites) the Solas 2 Watt USB tail light, along with the 1 watt / .5 watt Cherry Bomb are still available. These “be seen” lights are quickly approaching the “to see with” outputs.
