See.Sense
This safety light works harder when a cyclist most needs to be seen. Built-in sensors detect moving vehicles as well as the fading of the sun, triggering a flashing signal that motorists just can’t miss.

Topeak MiniRocket iGlow
You need a pump, so why not one that doubles as a rear safety light? The iGlow mounts easily on the back of a bike’s seat post, and its rechargeable LED glows red when switched on.
