BikeRide finds and shows you the best prices of the bikes you want to buy. Prices constantly change and it’s impossible to compare them all yourself.

We search for prices on over 120 bike retailers to guarantee that we find the lowest prices – to save you time and money.

It’s a promise we stand behind: If you find a lower price on a bike elsewhere, we will sell it to you for 10% less. For example, if you find a bike for $480 that we have listed at $500, we will offer you to buy it for $432 through BikeRide. The bike must be the same color and size, sold in the US and not include the use of a coupon.

If you find a lower price, email us at [email protected] with documentation of the price. We’re committed to making sure that the cost of a bike does not keep you from cycling!

Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the Redshift Arclight. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

14 reasons to buy

  • Studies have shown that the Arclights' continuous motion increases lighting visibility in traffic.
  • Reviewers say that Arclights are impressively bright.
  • Runtimes impress testers, lasting as long as 36 hours on ‘Eco Flash’ mode.
  • With sealed bearings and a steel axle, testers praised the Arclights’ smooth action.
  • Arclight pedals use smart electronics and bicolor LEDs to ensure that your front-facing light is always white and your rear-facing light remains red.
  • Arclights feature 1x steady and 2x flashing light modes.
  • Light modules are removable and attach to Arclight pedals magnetically.
  • An included USB dock charges all 4 of the Arclights' light modules simultaneously.
  • Light is visible from the sides of Arclight pedals, providing lateral visibility.
  • An aftermarket Multi-Mount allows riders to mount the Arclights' modules on their handlebars, seatpost, helmet, or bag.
  • With an IP64 rating, Arclight pedals are both water and dust-resistant.
  • Upon powering up, Redshift’s Arclight pedals automatically activate in the mode you used for your last ride.
  • These pedals are activated by motion and deactivated after 30 seconds of motionlessness.
  • With a standard ⁹⁄₁₆” thread, Arclight pedals will fit most cranksets.

3 reasons not to buy

  • Reviewers and riders report that the Arclights’ low-profile ridges can become slippery in wet weather.
  • Experts and buyers note that these innovative pedals come at a high asking price.
  • Testers and users are aware of the Arclights’ substantial 1.3 lb total weight.

Bottom line

With their visibility enhanced by the Redshift Arclight pedals’ constant motion, testers say drivers gave them a wide berth. Many reviewers recommend using Arclight pedals in addition to regular handlebar and seatpost-mounted lights. Experts and users are impressed by their high-quality build. To some, the amount of grip on offer is underwhelming. Smart electronics ensure that your red light remains switched to the rear and your white light to the front! A truly innovative and high-quality component with a ‘not-low’ price to match.

Arclight Flat Pedals

Overall, we found the Redshift Sports Arclight flat pedals to be well designed and offer excellent safety. They combine a high-quality metal flat pedal with built-in traction lugs with slick COB LEDs.

For those who don’t ride clipless I’d say the only reason not to buy these is the price. If you are a year-round commuter, though, the cost is worth it. The brightness is impressive.

Do Your Pedals Make You Safer? The Redshift Arclight Pedals Can

Right now, if you want to add integrated lights to your pedals there is the Redshift Arclight and the Look Geo City Grip Vision. Of the two, Redshift offers a much easier-to-use product overall. The Look pedals have way more grip.

Redshift Sports Arclight Pedals – Are They Good for BikeLife?

Now, last night I was doing wheelies the entire night, never had one of these slide out. These pedals keep me safe, they’re light, they’re not intrusive, they’re not something I have to think about because they auto-adjust.

Arclight Pedals by Redshift Sports Tested – Be Seen Stay Safe

So far, these Arclight pedals have been great. I highly recommend them. They make you much more visible and are comfortable to use. The pedal bearings feel smooth. A higher waterproof rating would give you one less thing to worry about.

Redshift Arclight Pedals

I know quite a few of you use your gravel bike to commute and so during the week when you’re riding to work, you might pop these pedals on and on the weekend, when you’re getting a bit more gnarly, then you swap to your clippers or more grippy pedals.

Give Yourself a Chance – Be Seen in the Dark!

They’d be brilliant for anybody going to and from work. They’re not cheap and that’s the whole point. When we consider how much we pay for a bike, it’s not very much money to help ensure our safety.

My Favorite Lights for Bikepacking, MTB, and Everything Else. Hope It Brightens up Your Day :)

In a nutshell, these pedals make sure you’re visible. They’re constantly giving off 360° of light. They’re definitely rugged and ready for poor weather but also kind of heavy. They’re best suited for commuting and city riding.

Arclight Pedals Review

When it’s moving, you can see these lights flashing. Cars will be able to see you, people will be able to see you. It’s a remarkable innovation. If you look at the nubs on here, they’re kind of rectangular and they work okay but they’re nowhere near as grippy as studs.

Increase Your Visibility While Cycling | Redshift Arclight Pedals

They’ll stay on standby for, I think, about 12 hours so if you don’t touch your bike and you pick it up, maybe the next morning after waking up, your pedals will still automatically turn on without you having to think about it and I think that’s pretty cool.

Arclight Pedal Review from Redshift Sports

The Arclight smart LED light module with a multi-mount is pretty neat. When it’s horizontal on your handlebars it’s going to be your front-facing light and if it’s on your seatpost it’s going to switch to your rear-facing safety light.

ArcLight Bike Pedals // Illuminate Your Commute // Safety Product Review

Studies have shown that when you have lights with bio-motion you stand out to drivers something like 50% or 58% more than if your light was static. Now I have the entire floor mounted with lights, which is awesome. I got lights all over me.

Redshift Arclight Bike Pedals With Smart LED Lights

I honestly didn’t expect them to be that bright. I thought I would only use them at night when I’m riding, but it looks like they are very bright even during the daytime, which is very great.

Arclight LED Smart Pedals for Any Electric Bike

One hundred percent, they are awesome. The only thing I’m worried about is the actual grip. When you actually start going off-road or you go off some bad bumps or something like that, are your feet going to slide off or pop up?

My Bike Pedals Are LIT | Redshift Arclight Pedals

Giving that 360° of illumination, I feel is very key. Now, they’re supposed to be rugged and weatherproof. Not waterproof, ‘weatherproof’. So they’re IP64 rated, doesn’t mean you should submerge them in water.

Redshift Arclight Pedals Pros & Cons

After testing these pedals for a few weeks on our family e-bike, the increased visibility in low light to nighttime is better than any light we’ve ever tested. While we won’t be using these on our gravel bike any time soon, they are an outstanding product.

Review: Redshift Arclight Smart LED Bicycle Pedals – Light-up Pedals for Commuters and Urban Riding

During testing, I came away with the distinct impression that motorists gave me more space while passing. The Arclight pedals aren’t cheap, and they don’t negate the need for a steady headlight, but they’re a worthy upgrade for any cyclist who wants to improve their visibility.

LED Pedals for Plenty of Light on Your Feet [German]

The Redshift Arclight pedals are convincing in initial tests, across the board, and definitely ensure far more visibility and thus safety, when you are on the bike. A small drop of bitterness: the lack of StVO compatibility and the rather high price.
