Whether you like it or not, shorter days are on the horizon and that means your after-work rides will be most likely happening in the dark. We’ve already been putting in miles once the sun dips behind the Jemez mountains here in Santa Fe and I’ve finally figured out what my winter riding kit will be. After Light and Motion worked on the video profile of the Radavist last year, I got a bag of lights to try out. My favorite in the bunch is the lightweight VIS 360 PRO. When mounted on a helmet like so, it’s a great supplemental spotlight to help guide your way on even the darkest trails. Check out a quick review of this system below.
The Light & Motion VIS 1000 is one of the best cycling lights son the market and with the summer soltice long behind us, it’s time to consider lighting options for the forthcoming months. These 1000 lumen lights have multiple modes, allowing you to run them for 1.5 hours to 12 depending on energy settings, they weigh 121 grams, charge with a USB 2.0 cable, and now, you can fully customize the colors online, all for $99.

Before we packed up and moved out of Los Angeles, Light and Motion came out to check out our “operations” and go on a sunset ride with me on my then-new-to-me Starling Murmur. I’m rarely in front of the camera but if you’ve ever wondered how this website came to be and what our office looked like in LA, then check out this video!
