Nitecore 1800 lumens bike light

The BR35 bike light from Nitecore uses 2 x Cree XM-L2 U2 LED bulbs for far and close-up illumination, giving a lumen output of 1800 on the highest setting with a throw distance of 175 meters / 192 yards. Part of our top-rated bike lights list due to its high lumen output, features, and fair price. The light comes with a remote control that’s attached near your hand so you can operate the light without having to take your hand off the handlebar. There are 4 brightness levels to toggle between, and as 3 city light modes, and a flashing warning light. Operates on a built-in 6800 mAh battery that’s rechargeable with the included USB cable.

Specifications and how to operate the BR35 bike light

Below is a video from Nitecore where all the technical specifications are listed, as well as how to operate the BR35 bike light and toggle between all the various modes and brightness settings. Here you can also see how the tiny remove control attached near the hand area looks like, quite a smart feature that lets you toggle between the settings just by moving your finger over, letting you keep the focus on the path instead

If you are looking for something bright for your night rides, the BR35 is a great choice. Packed with features and easy to operate, impact-resistant and IPX7 waterproof rating make the bike light usable in any kind of terrain, even if it’s raining. Popular light with user ratings of 4.5 out of 5, from over 50 verified buyers makes this a safe choice. The only drawback for me personally is that it uses a built-in battery pack, so you can’t bring extra batteries and replace them for longer rides. But if you won’t need light for many hours, it’s worth buying. Included a runtime chart below so you can see how long the battery lasts on the various settings
