I’m a broadcast engineer (electronic tech). Have to agree the NightRider products are excellent. For a headlight get a 1 watt or better light. You want something above 150 lux. The MiNewt 200 has a nice beam pattern. Consider a helmet light too. I have to give a thumbs up to Planet Bikes Super Flash. Had a friend follow me on a bright sunny day. He said he could clearly see the red strobe from 1/2 mile back.
