Bicycle lights and reflectors are considered as a necessity, especially for adventurous riders who prefer to ride in the night. Bicycle lights are needed when there is less light and visibility. Mountaineering and adventure cycling is a rising sport now-a-days, wherein lights such as front bike lights, rear bike lights, straps and reflectors, and spoke lights have become a necessity for bicycle riders. Various laws globally mandate the installation of lights and reflectors on bicycles and the correct positioning of these lights.The legislation which involves bicycle lighting is the Road Vehicles Lighting Regulations 1989 (amended in 1994 and 2005), normally abbreviated to RVLR. According to the law, cyclists travelling at night are required to have front lamps emitting white light with a visibility of at least 500 feet. These lights and reflectors help the riders to see the obstacles by illuminating the roads, without dazzling the other road users. These lights are generally light colored and reflective enough to scatter the light on the road.
Cycling as a sport and fitness activity has seen growth in recent years due to changing lifestyles and increasing awareness of its health benefits, leading to wide availability of technically advanced bicycles with facilities such as lights and reflectors for the convenience of riders. These features in the bicycles have increased the number of buyers, who consider this mode of transport as a cheap and environmentally safe option for travelling. Another driving factor that has resulted in the growth of the bicycle lights and reflectors market is the increase in number of working women who are majorly focused on health benefits of riding a bicycle and its convenience. However, the cost of these cycles which are mounted with high cost lights and reflectors sometimes restrains the buyers from purchasing these cycles.
