Incase you haven't spotted it, road.cc's yearly light beam comparison engine and buyer's guide was released this week. The DealCatcher's not one to let such a monumental occasion go by with only an acknowledging nod, so he's included two top quality bike lights in today's DealCatcher.
Also in today's DealCatcher is Shimano's Ultegra 6800 11-speed cassette at a 41% discount over at Chain Reaction Cycles.
But first, the two lights: Knog's Light Boomer front light and Exposure's Trace light set from Cycle Surgery and Chain Reaction Cycles respectively.
The Knog's seen a 50% discount over at Cycle Surgery, while the Exposure set slips down to below the £70 mark with a 26% discount.
50% off Knog's Light Boomer Front
WAS £24.99 | NOW £12.50
Back when the Knog Boomer would have set you back £35 our man Shaun Audane reviewed it and gave it a reasonably solid road.cc 7/10.
As we said, though, that review was done when the light cost almost three times what it does today, so therefore we can image Shaun would have given the light a couple of bonus points. After all, competition within the cheaper bike light market is usually slightly less quality-dependent.
If you read Shaun's review below you'll see that he loved the power output of the light alongside the beam pattern options, and Knog's classic funky styling.
26% off Exposure's Trace Light Set
WAS £94.95 | NOW £69.99
Moving from the now bargain-level price of the Knog to a slightly more expensive light set in Exposure's Trace.
John Stevenson, one of road.cc's longest serving and most revered reviewers gave the Trace light set an excellent 8/10 when he reviewed them a couple of years ago, calling them "superb."
You can read his review below wherein he heralds the set's flexibility and power, alongside their undeniably "solid" build quality.
Chain Reaction Cycles
41% off Shimano's Ultegra 6800 11-Speed Cassette
WAS £79.99 | NOW £46.99
Finally, the heartbeat of Shimano's frankly incredible Ultegra 6800 groupset, the cassette, is available at a stonking disount at Chain Reaction Cycles.
When we reviewed the Ultegra 6800 groupset our man Dave Atkinson said the 11-speed "cassette works splendidly well and you can bask in your extra ratio, which in all cases is an 18T cog between the 17T and 19T."
Elliot joined team road.cc bright eyed, bushy tailed, and straight out of university.
Raised in front of cathode ray tube screens bearing the images of Miguel Indurain and Lance Armstrong, Elliot's always had cycling in his veins.
His balance was found on a Y-framed mountain bike around South London suburbs in the 90s, while his first taste of freedom came when he claimed his father's Giant hybrid as his own at age 16.
When Elliot's not writing for road.cc about two-wheeled sustainable transportation, he's focussing on business sustainability and the challenges facing our planet in the years to come.
