  • Outstanding bike light

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Nice and small, 34mm diameter, perfect size for a road bike.

    Slow flash rate (approx 1Hz) is perfect for being seen by cars, much more useful than the fast strobe rate of most other lights.

    Cons:

    Not sure how weatherproof it is out of the box, there's no seals around the cable where it enters the head unit. But a little silicone will fix that.

    I had to file the black mounting bracket a little so it would sit on my handlebar a little better, only took a few minutes.

    OtherThoughts:

    Don't be put off by the 580 lumen rating, when so many other lights are claiming 900, 1200, 2100 lumens. This is a very bright little light, more than bright enough for traveling in full darkness on those early morning rides. And a perfect flash rate for visibility in daylight / dusk.

    Bottomline:

    Unbeatable for the price. I'll be buying more.
