The Blaze Laserlight is an ingenious UK design that combines a quality 300-lumen front light with a laser beam projection that gives fellow road users advance warning of your approach by projecting a green direct-diode bike symbol 6 metres in front of you.
Blaze can therefore make fair claim that their Laserlight is the safest front bike light for urban riding.
Sceptical? Well that eminent cycling magazine The Daily Telegraph gave the Blaze Laserlight a 4.5/5 rating when they reviewed it in 2014, and dubbed it 'the bat signal bike light'. Full review.
