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

Pros:
- 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?
Cons:
- 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).
Other:
Safety device must be reliable "out of box". So mentioned problem with faulty contact seems to be weird in my opinion.
Bottomline:
Looks soft. Works hard!
