Light It Up With Our New Jobsworth Lights


The kids have only been back a school a couple of weeks but keen cyclists and committed commuters are already reaching for the bike lights. Last year we introduced our first range of Jobsworth lights, ranging from the small but perfectly formed Capella flashing lights through to our commuter special the Asterion and onwards and upwards to the off-road focussed Night Canon. We’ve kept the best of them in the line-up again for this year and we’ve added some truly remarkable new models that offer serious power per pound, long run times and versatility that’s simply second to none.

This time every year keen cyclists are faced with the same dilemma; ride in the cold and the dark after you get home from work to put in the miles, or switch to riding indoors and pull out the faithful, trusty turbo trainer for another season. For the results focussed rider it’s an easy decision, you can train just as well on a turbo trainer or rollers as you can on the road, and if it’s going to be guaranteed to be bone dry and a balmy 20oC every evening then who needs to go outside where it’s dark, cold and probably wet?

Of course some of us are made out of sterner stuff, we live for the night rides, the deserted tracks and the quiet roads. Some of us can’t wait for the dark nights to draw in so we can strap on multi-thousand Lumen headlights that will permanently blind wild animals at 100 paces and head out and ride. It doesn’t matter if it’s on the road or off-road all we care about is that it’s on the bike, and brilliant bike lights make this possible.

Then there’s the third type of cyclist, neither a racer nor an adventurer. They either don’t own a car or refuse to use it. You’ll find them furtively weaving in between stopped cars as they pull up to every traffic light. You’ll see them darting across the tarmac, jumping red lights, ignoring road markings, video taping the misdeeds of everyone but themselves. Dressed head to toe in day-glo, fluoro and neon, punctuated with the best 3M Scothclite retro-reflective trim details- these knights of the road are the cycling commuter, and do they love bike lights.

Admission time, I fall into the last two groups myself. I’m a keen night rider, both on and off-road and I have a 30 mile round trip commute that I undertake pretty much every day, come rain or shine. I’m also a self-confessed bike light geek. I love their shiny little metal bodies, their O-ring seals, their weather-proofed connectors and waterproof battery packs. I love their multiple illumination modes, the fact that they can run for hours off a single charge and more than anything I love the fact that I can turn night into day with the flick of a switch- or two. I’m a serial collector of bike lights, from lead-acid monsters from the USA to Nicad behemoth’s from Europe right down to overpriced Li-Ion beauties from the UK, I’ve had them all, ridden them all, stored them with insufficient charge over winter and lived to tell the tale.

With all that preamble said and done let’s get down to the nitty gritty business of introducing you to this years cream of the crop from the Jobsworth light range. From button cell flashers to 1000 lumen smashers you’ll find every type of bike light in this years Jobsworth range.
