DVR puts Exposure DayBright Lights through the paces

.

After meeting the lovely research and product designer from Exposure Lights at Hickstead in July with a joint interest in promoting rider visibility, we arranged to try their DayBright lights out riding and tell you all our thoughts!

.

.

You may think to yourself, 'well I don't ride in the dark' but Exposure Lights' website explains, "The Highway Code, British Horse Society and Transport  Research Laboratory (TRL) recommend the use of lights by equestrians when they are riding on the road; at any time of day or night.." so if you do have a lot of road work and want to be that bit more visible, these could be a great option for you.

.

When riding in the lights and talking about this with another equine friend, we discussed how you always notice lights on cyclists in the day, so why would this not be a great idea for equestrians that do a lot of road work also?

.

Here's my personal experience with Exposure Lights for equestrians...

.

.

The first question that came to mind when my parcel arrived was, what technology have I ordered? The box that the lights came in was so cool! I thought it was a headphones case. The technical and luxury feel was there from the packaging, I knew I was opening up a special product. 

.

The lights were beautifully presented in their case, with everything else needed tucked neatly away beneath the show case, including instructions and a range of charging wires etc. 

.

.

The lights I tested came on two elasticated bands. The elasticated bands were velcro'd around the leg. The elastic was a great quality, soft but strong and very secure. I wore mine on top of my gaiters, the light sat extremely comfortably and didn't move throughout my whole ride. I was riding a bouncy thoroughbred on the downs, so they were very much tested!

.

.
The first thing I noticed about the lights that I really liked was the double ended lights, with the white light at the front and red at the back. The lights were extremely easy to control with an easy to reach built in button. There were a few different settings to choose from such as flashing or non-flashing.
.
From their website, I learned that the pulsing light is to do with day bright. "Daybright utilises a pulse pattern designed specifically for daytime use; enabling you to be visible from up to 1Km away.."
.
.
The lights don't have to be worn on your boots, but I liked this idea because it is showing the driver how wide you are. Other options for mounting are on your arms or the ankle of your boot, or on your helmet using the longer band also provided. There are also stick on and bar mount options, making the lights ideal for use on carriages.
.
.
So overall as you can probably tell, I was really impressed by these lights.
And to top it all off, they're Made in England!
