StVZO_XL Header_01_EN.png

"In Germany, bicycle lights have to be approved for street use. This approval is called the StVZO. While these rules only apply to those riding their bikes in Germany, all StVZO approved bicycle lights are great at not blinding others and providing the right amount of light. Please refer to your local authorities regarding what requirements bicycle lights need to meet to be street safe."

Bicycle lights powered by batteries are extremely practical. They are available in a wide range of sizes, brightness and price levels and can be mounted and removed from virtually any bicycle in no time.

To make it easier for you to choose when buying your bicycle light, we have tested various battery lights in total darkness and at maximum luminosity. To estimate the distance, the pylons on the pictures are set up at a 10 meters from each other.

Dynamo lights have the advantage over battery bicycle lights that they are always ready for use. You never have to worry about whether the batteries are charged or not. 

To make it easier for you to choose your dynamo light, we have tested several models in total darkness. The pylons on the pictures serve to estimate the distance. These are set up at a distance of 10 metres apart.

  • Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark III
  • Aperture: F/8
  • Exposure: 1/3 sec.
  • ISO: 2000
