Easy to see from behind. A great safety light for night or dark days. Easy to fit onto bike without tools

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Flawed but would still get another
I have the front version and after about 9 months, the small flexible piece of metal inside the housing that controls the power button broke off, which meant I have a lot of difficulty trying to turn it on or switch modes. The silicon housing/wrap around fit is great coz it reduces any need for clamps or screws and is very secure/vibration free. Problem is that after a couple of times changing the batteries (which requires pulling out the light assembly from the silicon casing), the silicon has started to tear in parts. But, for all the defects, its still to me the best design for the reasons stated - easy mount/removal, secure,no rattling parts.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Nice design, but...
I have to admit I bought this because it looked nice...Huge mistake! It is attractive,(I have the red one but next time I'll choose function over form. It clips on well and easily at least. I don't know how many hours I've wasted trying to turn it on, off or onto a different mode - aargh! So frustrating! I can only guess how impossible it will be with gloves on or cold, wet, numb hands. It's no brighter than other rear lights that are half the price and have the same amount of flashing sequence modes. God knows how you're meant to change the battery? I guess you just have to add it to landfill...not impressed. Don't waste your money unless you're an occasional cyclist who just wants a pretty gadget.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Nice design, crap product
This is a great light, as long as you live somewhere dry and warm enough that you never need to wear gloves to turn it off/on. I got one as a present and was really chuffed with it because it's so easy to put on and remove from the bike. Plus it's a great light -- nice and bright. BUT it's absolutely not rain proof, muck proof, and after a while it was a real pain to turn on or off, so in all it barely lasted 9 months before it ended up in the bin. I wouldn't buy another one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Disappointing
Bought this for the winter here in Brussels. It fitted well and seemed an excellent unit, with a good range of lighting options. Like others, I was puzzled by the switch unit, which sometimes didn't work and was up against a hard piece of plastic so made it less than simple to access (especially in gloves). After three days of riding in Belgian rain earlier this month the unit is completely dead. It wasn't at all waterproof, and filled with water and road grit. The switching unit then started to misbehave and, despite dismantling and cleaning the light, it now seems to have been money down the drain. I think I'll try an exposure light - I use one on the front and it's rock-solid in all temperatures and weather conditions.

It was a beatiful idea: the locking system works a treat, the angled LEDs shine at exactly the right angle and are very bright, it's simplicity itself. Except that it isn't at all waterproof and the switch mechanism (lump of solder contact place on a PCB) is exactly where the water gathers. The switch is impossibly fiddly and it works when it feels like working and I can find no reason for it not to work any of the other times. Not really helping my safety on the road.

I bought this to use on training runs throughout the winter and was at first impressed by the brightness and multiple settings. However after a long and heavy period of rain the unit refuses to turn on. Waterproof? I think not :(.
