Gloworm Alpha Light (1200 Lumens)

  • $224.99

Gloworm lights are our favourite brand of lights for night riding of all sorts. They are high output, water resistant (IP66 rated), shock proof, a fantastic build quality, easy to use and engineered in New Zealand.

The Gloworm alpha is the most affordable light in their range, but makes no compromises on quality. It can provide 1200 Lumens of light (measured) for two hours, and lower outputs for much longer. The Alpha light head assembly weighs 69 grams and it’s relatively lightweight battery means you can mount both the light and battery to your helmet, just in case you want to ride without a backpack.
