I ordered this item but actually received the P7 rated at 200 lumens - Cheers CRC !!!. It's a top quality item, robust and beautifully machined. Came in a very lovely matt black gift box complete with handlebar mount and storage pouch. The whole package is a quality offer. Performance : My ride to work is a 30km round trip across the Isle of Wight, mostly on unlit lanes and some off-road. I wanted a reasonably compact light which would have a low power setting for the lit road sections, but a usable hi-beam for unlit lanes and off road sections without bulky battery packs. Well this light performs perfectly for my needs. Now I can whizz along the road sections then flip on the hi-beam for the unlit, rough, pot hole filled lanes and tracks in total confidence at speed. The flood setting clearly lights the full width of the road ( narrow to single carriageway lanes ) for as far as you need to see to ride with confidence and the spot beam setting will pierce much further into the darkness but with a much narrower beam obviously. Totally satisfied with this product, and I would highly recommend it to any rider with similar requirements to mine. If you want to do fast off road, you could just buy two I suppose !!
Bought this as I had bought my dad A Lenser tourch as a gift so when I saw they made A model for bike use I thought MINT & took the plunge i m made up the tourch is bullet proof & on high setting is as as bright as A car headlight even on low setting is very bright great for the ride to & from work through town my only gripe could do with a flasing mode but a great buy
Having owned the 200 lumen p7 version of this light for work, I had no hesitation in ordering up the bike specific B7.
Build quality is excellent with lovely feel to all components. The battery holder (AAA's) is a work of art! The clamp fits very positively to my bars, with the rubber anti-slip insert making sure the is absolutely no shake or vibration when out on the roads.
The beam is very good and can be focused down to an intensive beam or zoomed out for a shallow but much wider beam ( I do tend to use this on a couple of very dark corners on my training route, so I can clearly see the road edge) battery life is very good with no visible dip in performance from alkaline or rechargeable batteries after 2 weeks of training rides. Being powered by AAA's it's easy enough to have some spares stashed away with your spare tube.
Only negative, and I am being picky here. It is possible to find a couple of points in the "zoom" range where the light pattern has rather troublesome dark spots - but it doesn't take more than a second to adjust it out of the way. Overall very pleased with quality and price.
Whether you're commuting through towns or cities, taking on a night time mountain bike ride or touring on a long distance road trek, having a reliable set of lights is crucial – and a legal requirement in many countries.
There's a great range of lights for all purposes and at all budgets, which can be broadly separated into models that'll help you BE SEEN (commuting, road riding, touring etc on relatively well-lit roads), and models that will help you SEE (mountain biking at night, lighting your way on unlit roads etc).
Front lights generally have handlebar attachments and rear lights attach to your seatpost, but there's also the option to fix lights to your helmet using helmet-specific mounts, and to a backpack or even your clothing.
There's a huge range of lights that'll help you be seen, and you don't have to break the bank to get a decent front and rear lightset. We'd advise you to get the best you can afford: after all, the more visible you can make yourself on the roads, the safer you'll be.
When you're looking for the right lights for you, check to see whether they offer good side-on visibility so that other vehicles and pedestrians can see you at junctions, for example. Also consider lights which offer a number of modes – some flash, some are constant. There's no limit to how many lights you can have, so you may want to have one light on flash and one on constant to make yourself that little bit more noticeable.
If you're commuting on unlit country roads, mountain biking in the dark or you want something more powerful than a general purpose bike light then we have something for you with our high-end performance front lights.
Bike light technology has advanced so rapidly in the past few years that you can now buy lightweight LED units with long running times which pack a huge punch. Yes, you'll pay a little bit more than your average front light, but the results are night and day (literally).
Many of these high powered units are lightweight enough to helmet mount – perfect for picking out trail obstacles when you're riding off-road at warp speed, but they're also just as useful on-road for pinpointing potholes and other road obstacles too.
Beam patterns on these lights vary – some with a wide spread; others with a more focussed beam. You may want to use a mixture of the two, or choose the one which suits your riding the best.
