  • Just not that bright

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

    Pros:

    Helps a bike be seen.
    A LOT less expensive than if purchased at a bike shop.
    Common battery size (3xAAA)

    Cons:

    Just not bright enough to really light a trail satisfactorily for me.

    OtherThoughts:

    When it first came out, this was probably a decent use of LED technology. Now, it's affordable, but just not that bright. I was hoping this would be usable for mountain biking on easier trails (e.g. fire roads), but I wouldn't want to use it even for that. It might be a great idea for a child's bike to make them more visible, but it's not bright enough to really light your way very much. I think one would be better off grabbing a more modern Cree or Seoul flashlight and putting it in a mount.

    VERY glad I tried it through DX and didn't pay the hyped up prices at a local store selling a similar item!

    Bottomline:

    Probably great on a kids bike, or to help your bike be seen, but wouldn't count on it for riding trails at night.
