The Cateye Orb is built to be Sleek, strong, lightweight and brilliantly bright. Housed in an alloy chassis the lens itself serves as the operating switch and is protected from inadvertent triggers while still allowing for side visibility. The Opticube lens technology maximises the best beam pattern utilising lens and reflector technology to emit a higher quality light and beam pattern in front of the rider, even with lower Lumen amounts.
This Light is great for: It is well known that commuters more visible to drivers with multiple light points the orb with its strong sideways visibility is a great addition to an illumination set for commuters and leisure riders.

Bike lights are rated in Lumens. A Lumen is the measurement of the total visible light emitted and is commonly used for all kinds of bulbs.
One thing worth noting is that most lights advertise their headline rate. Packaging may say 1000 lumens. Reading the small print they might only do that for an hour. That light may run 500 or 600 lumens for 2 or 3 hours. So it's worth buying a light with more lumens than you need to get decent running times.
There is no fixed agreement on how many Lumens you need for a bike light as it depends on the type of cycling you are doing. As a rough guide we say that:
