What Bicycle Lights Do I Need For The Munga MTB

For the Munga MTB you should have three Bicycle Lights and an extra battery, each serving a different purpose: 

Expedition Bicycle Light Combo

The Expedition Bicycle Race Combo is the complete package for anyone partaking in an ultra long-distance expedition event or multi-day adventure race.  

This COMBO is comprised of the Baviaans Bicycle Light, with high capacity 4 Cell Panasonic Cycle Light 6800 mAh and  6 Cell Panasonic Cycle Light 10200 mAh Batteries.

Riding with both batteries fully charged will give you roughly 100 hours on the lowest mode, 26 hours on mid mode and an amazing 6 hours on high mode. Giving you enough light to last days in your next expedition. Now you can do the Munga, Freedom Challenge &  Expedition Africa without worrying about having enough battery power for the whole race. 

Voted South Africa's most used MTB Bicycle Light brand, in Tread Magazine, South African Crash Survey: The Results - Part 2

Secondary Basecamp Head Light 


The purpose of a backup light is to:

  • Get you home safe if your primary light fails (due to crash, damage or running out of battery), or
  • Let you work on your bike when you have technical problems en route.

A backup light has to have its own batteries.  The Extreme Lights Basecamp Headlamp is ideal.  You can keep it in your rear pocket, and wear it on your forehead, beneath your helmet, in case of an emergency.  It is lightweight and comes with 3 AAA batteries in the box. Using it on Mid mode, you'll get 40h+. We suggest taking extra batteries with you, they're light and small and will come in handy. 

Phoenix USB Rechargeable Rear Bicycle Light 

The Phoenix USB Rechargeable Rear Bicycle Light keeps you visible from the rear - in the dark as well as during daytime.  Brighter than the previous 2017 model Phoenix Rear Bicycle Light and will make you visible to vehicles approaching from the rear - Be Seen, Be Safe!

The Phoenix Rear Bicycle Light has a super bright 60 Lumen of red light beam that it emits in a 240° wide angle, making you visible even to the sides.

 - 9 Hour runtime on Mid Static Mode
 - 12 Hour runtime on Slow Flashing Mode 
 - 15 Hour runtime on Fast Flashing Mode

The purpose of a rear light is to:

  • Get you home safe & keep you visible during the nights.
