The Knog Blinder 4 GT set of lights do exactly what they say on the tin and quite literally blind you should you make the mistake of looking directly at them!

With 4 bright LED lights on both the front and rear offering an LED rating of up to 80 lumens and 44 lumens respectively, coupled with a range of 5 different flash modes (Steady, Fast Flash, Organic Flash 1, Organic Flash 2 and Eco Flash) you will be as well lit as Oxford Street at Christmas.

The lights themselves are a design work of art and equally well constructed. Beautifully sleek and stylish with some innovative features such as the slim, integrated USB plug which itself is waterproof and will not be damaged by the elements. A thorough testing programme ensures that the Blinder 4 GT is 100% waterproof and will stand up to drops, corrosion, vibration, impact, humidity and extreme temperatures.

Attaching the lights to your handlebar or seat post is a piece of cake with the stretchy silicone rubber strap that is secured with a simple, yet effective, snap-shut mechanism.

Bomb-proof and bright, these lights will get you safely to and from the trail, enabling you to save the battery on your mega-lumen lights for the dark woods. Although at 80 lumens the front light could even get you home in a pinch should your batteries run out!

His first mountain bike was a Trek 820, which he bought in 1990. It didn’t take him long to earn himself a trip to the hospital on it, and he’s never looked back since. These days he’s keeping it rubber side down, riding locally and overseas as much as possible.
