Why using bike lights during the day is the sensible thing to do

The irrefutable fact is that our planet, our cities, and our roads are getting busier. Urban populations will reach over 4.2 billion people in 2019, and our cities are not just filling with just people either, as of 2019 there are a staggering 1.2 billion cars on the world’s roads.

At Knog we see visibility as the most important investment that a cyclist can make in their own safety. Whether in congested urban environments where every road user has a multitude of distractions, through to riding on quieter country roads where a cyclists’ presence can be less expected. The more visible a rider can make themselves the better.

The truth is that daytime bike light use greatly improves rider’s safety. A Danish study’s findings showed that through daytime bike light use cyclists reduced their chances of being involved in an accident by 19%.
