I've had mine for around 4 years or so and it still works perfectly plus it's still the brightest light I've seen around. It has almost 360 degree visibility, the rechargeable batteries I use last me for over a month which adds up to more than 80 hours of constant use which considering how bright this is is impressive.
The bracket is ok, better than most but still not brilliant, just your normal Cateye stuff. Only down side, for me, is you have to push 2 buttons to turn both rows on and it doesn't remember your last setting, if I could push 1 button to set both rows to the mode I just used and then turn it off with that same button this would be absolutely perfect.
Bought one of these to go with the Electron Nano 9 at the front, very very bright and very well made, easy to change the batteries (at one end) and sealed with an O Ring to keep it water tight. Superb display with lots of different variations, can have the top or bottom row of Led's on at either time or both together, also the sides of the unit light up too, another plus. You'll be seen from miles away with this, believe me it's that bright, a bargain at the price, go get one!
I am really pleased with this light. I like the way that the top and bottom rows can be set independently so you can choose to save the batteries when it's not too dark - not that battery use is really a problem as, after 600 miles, it's still on the originals.
I've fitted it to a Topeak rack with the (quite expensive) optional fitting and it's very secure.
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.
