Review – NiteRider Lumina Micro 850 Front Bike Light

Review Niterider Lumina 850 Front Bike Light
A good quality high-power compact front bike light is a real asset — it can stay on your handlebars throughout the year; providing 'Be Seen' visibility as a running light, as well as helping light the way when the visibility falls. The NiteRider Lumina Micro 850 bike light is a superb example of a miniature front light that packs an impressive punch.

The Lumina Micro 850 weighs only 130 grams, yet it will put out 850 lumens on maximum output for 1.5 hours. On the most economical fixed light mode it will deliver 200 lumens for 9 hours.

I am a great fan of the simplicity of the NiteRider lights. The mount for example is just one single clamp design, which fits all sizes of handlebars and is fast and secure to attach. The light unit itself is robust, weatherproof, and has just one button that also doubles as a charge level indicator. Bike lights do not need to be super stylish — they need to work; that is the focus that NiteRider has maintained with their mount and unit designs.

The operation of the NiteRider Lumina Micro 850 is also super easy — toggling between modes using the button, and charging using a common micro-USB cable. There are five modes in total (High, Medium, Low, High Flash, Low Flash); enough to provide you with one that will suit your power/economy requirements for all kinds of riding. There is also a neat feature that allows you to lock the light to avoid it accidentally coming on during transit in a kit bag.

You barely notice the Lumina 850 on your handlebars, but it offers a great improvement in road presence even in bright daylight; then, it is powerful enough to light the way when the darkness creeps in. There are obviously bigger lights with longer and more powerful run times on the market, but for a reliable and versatile light that you can keep on your bar for every ride, the Lumina Micro 850 is a great little option.

  1. The niterider 850 creates RFI and the cateye gives false readings.
    Unfortunately they cannot be used together
    I was using the 850 as a daytime running light(I don't ride at night) so the 850 is for sale on Offer Up
