With it now getting dark from 4pm, we've the best deals of front lights, rear lights, and light sets from Wiggle, Chain Reaction, Evans Cycles, and Merlin
There are really two types of front light on the market: those that are there to help you see, and those that are there to help you be seen. The former will be brighter to help you pick out the general direction of the road and any irregularities in the road surface even when riding on unlit country lanes, while the latter are better suited to well-lit urban areas, making sure that traffic can see you approaching.

With around 40% of serious cycling accidents occurring when cyclists are hit from behind by motor vehicles, your rear light is probably the most important of your two lights. We’d recommend having two rear lights on your bike at all times: one that’s bright and flashing, and the other there as a backup just in case your main rear light runs out of juice and you find yourself stranded.

Buying a pair of lights is an easy way of making sure that you get well-matched front and rear lights that are suitable for the sort of riding that you’re doing, so you won’t end up accidentally buying a super-powerful rear light with a weak front light that won’t do the job on unlit lanes. Buying the lights as a pair can also be slightly cheaper too.
