Even though the sunlight lingers longer on summer evenings, it's still important to be prepared for nighttime bike rides. Luckily, a new crop of innovative cycling-light systems make your evenings safer by upping your ability to see, as well as your visibility to others. In these days of distracted drivers, it's better to be noticed by an Instagrammer than be the casualty of one.
Simplicity at its finest: Sling this belt across your body or around your waist and you'll be visible from all angles. The comfortable nylon belt's three modes – flash, strobe, and solid – keep you seen in most circumstances, while its 75-hour battery life means you don't have to worry about it burning out every time you ride. Available in red, blue, green, and yellow, the adjustable belt is a smart sub for those who don't want to wear reflective gear or use standard lights. [$85; halobelt.com]
