Rated 4 out of 5 by Iceman Powerful but fragile
Its very bright light and is aero on the bike for those riding fast. I like the USB charging.
But the rubber band broke after only 3 months of use. I saw on the internet that many people have had the same problem with the rubber. Also it can drop off the bike if you hit a pothole.
