Lighting It Up for Half a Century
With more than 60 years of experience in producing illumination devices for bikes, it’s not difficult to understand how Cateye has become virtually synonymous with bike lights. Founded in 1964, in Osaka, Japan, the company produced the first flashing lamp for a bike. Since then, their range and expertise may have expanded, but what hasn’t changed is the brand’s desire to innovate and lead the industry.
Cateye’s bike lights are bright and reliable enough to be used season after season. Whether it’s a powerful headlight—like the Volt 1700—to illuminate dark country lanes or something a bit smaller and simpler to ensure your seen while commuting—like the popular AMPP 400—there’s something to suit all sorts of riders’ needs. If it’s only a rear light you need to keep you seen and safe, there’s plenty of options from lights to attach to your seat post to wearables.
Simple and Effective Bike Computers
Cateye might be best known for their lights, but they were also among the first companies to release a bike computer. If you’re looking to track critical metrics and have a record of your rides, so you can keep a keen eye on your performance then these might just be the computers for you. They may not be the most high-tech cycling computers on the market, but if you simply want something that won’t let you down, the range is well worth consideration.
