The situation: Just because the days continue to grow shorter doesn’t mean you can’t continue riding at night time. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, active lighting devices can help improve visibility of bicyclists on the road, potentially reducing the likelihood of accidents.

A solution: Niterider’s Sentinel 40 taillight provides 40 lumens of red LED light in multiple modes, including two steady and two flash levels — and one with a group mode that won’t distract or annoy other bikers. It also projects FDA-compliant laser lines on the ground to create a virtual lane for riders, helping to keep them on target and safe.

The details: The product’s Li-Po battery is USB chargeable (cable included), and the unit itself weighs only 73 grams. Charge time is 4 hours, and run time ranges from 4.5 to 36 hours, depending on light setting and output. Seatpost mount is included.

Price: $49.99.
