The Cateye Omni 5 is the perfect safety light to increase your visibility after dark. This Five LED light has Omni Directional Technology, making it more visible from any angle.
The Omni 5 has three modes - rapid, flashing and constant - so you can choose the best one to suit your riding. A simple tool-free bracket with clothing clip means you can use it anytime, anywhere.
I bought this from Tredz a few weeks ago as a "seen by" light for use in daytime (AKA "DRL") and at night. In daytime I use it in flashing mode and it works very well, having checked its effectiveness from a distance. At night it can be seen from a very long way away. In neither case does it dazzle oncoming drivers - even when seen from the seat of my sports car!. Good view from about 60 deg either side of centre - from the reaction it can bee clearly seen by drivers if I'm waiting at a turning and twist the handlebars slight in thier direction. Mine is mounted at fork crown height, pointing horizontally. Well worth buying, just about to purchase one for my son!

What are bike lights?
Bike lights are vital accessories which attach to your handlebars, seatpost, helmet, bag or jersey. Their function is simple – to help you to see and be seen.
Who needs bike lights?
Everyone needs bike lights! It’s a legal requirement to use front and rear lights on your bike between sunset and sunrise, but they are also useful when visibility is poor – in the fog for example.
What are the choices?
Light technology is ever evolving and the choice is enormous. Always think “the brighter the better” and look for a higher lumen output when choosing. There are lights that run on batteries or beams which can be recharged via plug or a handy USB socket (great for topping up at work). Some lights have battery packs and most have a selection of modes to choose from. You’ll definitely need the brightest lights if you ride wooded trails as you’ll really need to see where you’re going!
What should I buy with them?
Spare batteries are handy if your bike runs on these, as is a charger if it’s rechargeable. Spare mounts are always useful, especially if you have more than one bike. A helmet mount points the beam where you’re looking, rather than the direction your bike is pointing.
Don’t get caught out – a spare back up light is a great purchase in case your ride goes on longer than anticipated or the lights go out earlier than expected.
