Outstanding bike light – MarsFire M01 Cree XM-L T6 580lm 3-Mode White Bike Light - Fir Green (4 x 18650) Reviews

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