      Comments:

      This light gets my thumbs up - get comments about how bright it is from other cyclists, and has a nice adjustable mounting system. I ride daily, and I ride in group rides a couple times a week, and everyone else notices how bright this thing is, plus it has side LED's - I'm going to get one for my daughter also. Great tail light for the money. Visibility per dollar is extremely high, and this is why you have a rear light. If I did not have to carry a 00 philips to change batteries, this thing would be about perfect, but I really like this light.

      Good light for the price

      By Scott

      from Arlington, VA

      About Me Avid Cyclist

      Pros

      • Long battery life
      • Great visibility

      Cons

      • Cold weather issues

      Best Uses

      • Rear safety light
      • Night commute

      Comments:

      Has a constant, flash and strobe function and is highly visible. Not as bright as a PB superflash, but it has a wider angle of visibility. I had issues with one which would stop working in moderately cold weather, but my LBS did a warranty replacement and I haven't had any issues with the new one in similar conditions.

            Have spent over an hour trying to get it open to install batteries. I have loosened the three screws per instructions. Cannot figure out how to open the body. Searched web, tried everything short of breaking the plastic.

            I used this bike always went I went to that evening training. Sometimes the night caught me on the road to my house. This light is seen for at least 200 meters. Great taillight. To change the batts it is a little difficult. But with a good screwdriver and patience you can do it.

            A simple to use quality product at a reasonable price. Installs easily and the simple push button operation is simple. The AA lead acid batteries it comes with don't have the life span of a lithium ion or even Nimh, but hey, at least the batteries are included!

            Comments:

            I use this light on the back of my bike. I bike to and from work most days and at night, this tale light is bright. It has three modes of operation. I like this light because it also has yellow lights on the side so your visible from the back and the side. This light is hard to take off, if you have the standard reflector already attached to the seat pole. I think this is the only con i have with this product, ohterwise, its great. I purchased this tail light in a combo pack, which was creaper then buying them as a single.
