Mountain Bike Lights

At Oxbow Gear, we believe that when it comes to mountain biking, proper lighting is just as important as having the right gear. Riding at night or in low-light conditions without adequate lighting can be dangerous, and can ruin what would otherwise be a great ride. That’s why we offer a range of high-quality mountain bike lights designed specifically for off-road use.

Mountain Bike Helmet Light

Our selection of mountain bike lights includes both headlight and helmet light options, so you can choose the setup that works best for you. While a headlight can illuminate directly in front of your bike, a helmet light allows you to see around corners and take in the upcoming terrain. This gives you a much better view of the trail, and allows you to ride with peripheral vision so you can react to obstacles or hazards before you reach them.

Beam Quality

When it comes to choosing a mountain bike light, beam pattern is also an important consideration. A smooth, even beam pattern is much more comfortable for the rider than a tight spot light pattern. This is because peripheral vision gives you depth perception and helps prevent tunnel vision, so it’s essential that your light allows you to see as much of the trail as possible. That’s why all of our lights are engineered to have smooth, even beam patterns that maximize efficiency.


Another important factor to consider when choosing a mountain bike light is weight. Having a heavy light on your head can cause neck strain and discomfort, so it’s essential to choose a light that’s as light as possible without sacrificing brightness or functionality. Our Voyager helmet light is the lightest weight helmet light per lumen on the market, thanks to its temperature sensor technology that automatically dims the light when there’s low airflow (such as when you’re going slow). This helps prevent the light from overheating, while still providing bright, reliable illumination when you need it most.


Of course, durability is also a key concern when it comes to mountain bike lights. After all, off-road riding can be tough on equipment, and you need a light that can stand up to the rigors of mountain biking, snowmobiling, and other outdoor sports. That’s why all of our lights are built with rugged construction designed to take a beating and endure the harshest environments.

GoPro Compatible 

All of our helmet lights are designed to be compatible with the GoPro mounting system, making them incredibly versatile and easy to install just about anywhere. And for those who prefer a more traditional setup, we also offer a hardwire kit that allows you to easily wire our lights into your mountain bike’s electrical system.

What type of light should I use for mountain biking at night?

When selecting a light for mountain biking, it’s important to consider the brightness, beam pattern, and battery life. A good starting point is to choose a light with at least 1000 lumens and a wide beam pattern to provide ample visibility on the trail. Look for lights with long battery life or consider carrying a backup battery or light.

How do I mount my mountain bike light?

Most mountain bike lights come with handlebar mounts, but some models also include helmet mounts. It’s recommended to use both a handlebar and helmet light for optimal visibility on the trail. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to ensure proper installation and avoid damage to your bike or light.

Can I use my mountain bike light for other outdoor activities?

Yes, many mountain bike lights can be used for other outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, and running. Look for lights that are lightweight and portable with adjustable brightness settings.

What is the difference between a spot beam and a flood beam?

A spot beam is a narrow, focused beam of light that provides a long-range view of the trail. A flood beam is a wider beam of light that provides a broad view of the trail and surrounding area. A combination of both spot and flood beams is recommended for mountain biking to provide both long-range visibility and peripheral vision.

How do I maintain my mountain bike light?

Regular maintenance of your mountain bike light is important to ensure optimal performance and longevity. Keep the light clean and dry, check the battery regularly, and avoid exposing the light to extreme temperatures or moisture. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for specific maintenance recommendations.

Factors to Consider when Choosing Mountain Bike Lights

When choosing mountain bike lights, there are a few key factors to consider:


Brightness is an important consideration when choosing mountain bike lights, as you’ll want a light that is bright enough to see where you’re going, but not so bright that it blinds other riders or drivers on the trail.


Weight is also a factor to consider when choosing mountain bike lights, as you don’t want to add unnecessary weight to your bike. Look for lights that are lightweight and easy to mount on your bike.

Battery Life

Battery life is another important consideration when choosing mountain bike lights. You don’t want to run out of battery power in the middle of a ride, so look for lights with a long runtime.

Mounting Options

Finally, consider the mounting options for the light. You’ll want a light that is easy to mount on your bike and that stays securely in place while you ride.
