Bike Light CRI

Color Rendering Index

CRI also known as the Color Rendering Index is a quantitative measurement that is used to calculate authentic color on objects. Lighting matters for safety and a LED with high CRI rating produces a light that which is close to ideal light or natural light. It is important to have a light with a high CRI rating especially during the night and in particular on bumpy roads or in areas with obstacles such as rocks, fallen tree branches or sticks on the way, and for mud or other slick and wet surfaces. The use of a poorly designed LED light or light with a poor optical design might cause issues such as yellow spots as highlighted in the pictures displayed bellow. This yellow light might cause other riders or drivers to view the bicycle as moving in the wrong direction.
