Daytime Bike Lights: The New Moon 2017 Comet and Gemini

Moonlight – not just for night owls

Pioneers of COB next-generation LED lighting, Moon have been one of our fastest growing bike light brands over the past few years.

New for 2016/17

Moon have made their brilliant lights even better for this season by upgrading their complete Comet and Gemini ranges with the following features: Daytime Flash, Aluminium Heat Sink, Auto Safe Mode and Last Mode Memorised.

Moon Comet Bike Light

The Moon Comet-X Front Bike Light with 120 lumen daytime flash mode lasting 23 hours

Daytime Flash

As the name implies, this is bright enough to be genuinely eye-catching, even in full daylight. Daylight Flash comes into its own on those days when it suddenly gets overcast, so you’re most vulnerable to suffer a SMIDSY (sorry mate I didn’t see you) incident.

A smart feature of Daytime Flash is that it pulses comparatively slowly (around once a second) so it barely drains the battery. Offering 20-plus hours burn time per USB charge, there’s really no reason not to use this mode every daytime ride.

Aluminium Heat Sink

Every Moon Comet and Gemini lamp boasts a CNC-machined aluminium heat sink to ensure it burns cooler – the key to consistent light output and longevity.

Auto Safe Mode

If you’re ever concerned the battery will have enough juice to complete your journey, switch to Auto Safe Mode and the lamp will select a power level that guarantees one hour run time.

The Moon Gemini 2017 lights also offer seriously bright daytime flash modes lasting 30 hours.

Mode Memory

Whenever you switch the lamp on, it selects the mode you last used – no need to scroll to find your favourite.

What else is great about Moon Lights?

We genuinely consider Moon Comet and Gemini lights to be stand-out options if you are looking for a best buy in lightweight (they’re all sub 30g) modestly priced (they’re all sub £30) rechargeable urban lights that will do a better job of getting you seen.

As well as being upgraded with, for instance, daytime flash option, our Moon lights continue to offer the following sound design features, proven over the past three years.


Moon were among the first companies to introduce next-generation COB technology to LED bicycle lights. COB means Chips On Board. Instead of relying on a single or a few individual LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes), a COB light has a strip of up to 30 LED chips to create a noticeably brighter light. COB LEDs burn cooler so they should be even more reliable and longer lasting than standard LEDs.

USB Rechargeable

Every Moon Gemini and Comet light is powered by an integral Lithium Polymer battery, which is USB rechargeable for convenience and economy.

Faff-free universal fit

A laddered-rubber mounting strap offers fast tool-free fitting, and makes our Moon lights easy to swap between bikes. What’s more, every Moon Gemini and Comet lamp comes with a belt clip to further expand your mounting options.
