  • Planet Bike Superflash Clone

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    These lights are clones of the venerable Planet Bike Superflash, and that's a very good thing. They have a very bright, 1/2 watt led with supplemental, smaller leds that have an erratic and very visible flash pattern.

    I don't know if there is a more visible rear light out there.

    Cons:

    The mounting hardware isn't great, but it's more than sufficient. If you need anything more than a pocket clip, or a seatpost mount, you're on your own.

    OtherThoughts:

    A wider range of mounting mechanisms would be cool, but for this fantastic price I won't complain.

    Bottomline:

    Every bike should have at least one of these, and if you're serious about night time visibility, two or more. Supplement one of these with a few strips of reflective tape, and you should be visible in traffic.
