OK. So we have a thread on bargain lights, it seems as though while the illumination is good, perhaps their durability is a little questionable?

So say I had a budget of £100 for a new set of lights (I do), what would you recommend that's available at the moment (links are very much welcome)?

Edit: This is for off road riding.

Cheers...

Good point, clarification needed.

Bright off road lights. This can be a combination of either bar and helmet, or bar only, as long as the £100 budget is considered.

I have a couple of these

You'll need to buy the batteries and specific charger too, stil under £100 though. Very bright and each battery will last you about 2.5 hours ( i always carry a spare)

Isn't that just a torch? I don't see any mention of mounting systems.

+1 to that.i have the stella150 and its insane! I have had cars flash their headlights at me thinking I am a moped or something with the full beams on! The light from them is truly astonishing and the build quality is second to none.

Not sure it comes in budget though. I got mine reduced from £199 to £99. Bargain!
