Cycle light recommendations please?

Morning all,

I'm after some recommendations for cycle lights with the following criteria:

1) Front & rear set
2) Rechargeable
3) Bright enough to see & be seen (on and off road)
4) 150 budget for the set
5) 60 minute minimum run time (ideally more)
6) Transferable between road bike and MTB (ideally without tools)

Any recommendations from what you've used and works well for you?

Thanks

I have just fitted these to my commuter bike.

Linky 1

Linky 2

The reason being was that I wanted to know when the back light was out and I thought I could connect both lights to one battery. Luckily the back light comes with a remote switch which lights up.
I'm really impressed so far and they are both really bright even on the dimmest settings.

The 100 can go on other cycling kit (some new gloves and maybe a phone mount for my handlebars)

The "Build your own sports car for 250" was clearly untrue, I built an MK Indy kit and probably spent 250+ on tools!

I use Exposure lights on my bike https://www.exposure-use.com/Brands/Exposure-Lights the Strada on the bars and a Joystick on my helmet, they are a bit more than your budget though.

Look like good lights and powerful I'm sure.

Sadly above my budget though!

Super top of the line lights, for those who can tell the difference between 3000 lumen and 3001 lumen 😂

Also generally so bright that ona commuter bike you become "that guy" but off road they're super useful.

Lezyne KTV?

Can't remember how much I paid but the rubber strap makes them easy to put on and off.
I think they do a range of lights with features.

I have a couple of Exposure Lights - Maxx D for the bars and a Diablo for helmet both are fantastic; also have a Hope Vision 2 which is good. Also have chinese cheapies just because, though the chinese chargers are usually crap

They do appear to be top of line lights (and more money than I'll be paying).

Agreed, as a commuter you'd certainly stand out, but then seeing and being seen is pretty important!
