The Draw: The Tesla of Bike Lights

Props to Bontrager/ Trek for helping make daytime bike lights cool and now standard equipment for many cyclists and triathletes. The Ion 800R is a great choice for those who frequently need to both see clearly at night and be seen during the day. It mounts confidently to round bars, but may not be the best choice if you have a complex aero cockpit or if you consider yourself a true weight weenie. Choose from five ultra-powerful and distinctive lighting modes, with the day-flashing option offering up a stout “Here I am, do NOT turn in front of me!” warning, while the others are ideal for night or low-light settings. Battery life is outstanding, especially when used solely for day riding.
