Sits firmly. Bright enough. Versatile. What more? – 3-Mode Red Light LED Wheel Light for Bikes and Cars (1*CR2032) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

- Weights less than similar devices with "old-school" hard plastic cases.
- Outer shell made from silicon - it will never crack even after hard bumps
- Self-sealing: no water leaks between case and battery cover. (immersed in water for 5 minutes, 0.5 meter - no leak at all!)
- 2 strobe modes
- Tool-free installation. Can be mounted or removed in a second.
- Sits hard enough for medium XC tracks. Well, on the downhill track they'll possibly fly away just after start, but why you may need them during DH session?
- Incompatible with aero/flat-butted spokes.
- 4 of 6 devices had unstable contact between battery and contact pad, so even little bump was able to disable them (Solved by _slight_ bending pad toward battery with flat screwdriver).
Safety device must be reliable "out of box". So mentioned problem with faulty contact seems to be weird in my opinion.
Looks soft. Works hard!
