Product Description

Cyclists wanting a bike light to see and be seen with should consider the Cateye Volt 800 front light. With up to 800 lumen output this is bright enough to ride poorly lit and dark roads. You get 5 lighting modes to choose from, so you can opt for maximum visibility or battery economy depending on the riding conditions.

The Volt 800 is helmet mount compatible too making it a great secondary light source to a handlebar mounted system. This way you can see where you’re going, and where you want to go. Runtimes vary from an impressively long 80 hours on flashing to 7 hours on Hyper Constant.

Cateye have cut away some of the shell around the LED to improve sideways visibility for when you’re approaching junctions.

Very bright

Having had numerous front lights from other brands I have to say that this is by far the best I have bought. Very bright on full setting.

Cateye 800

I've used mine on 3 rides so far and it is brilliant. I use it on unlit roads and the Medium brightness is more than good enough to light the road ahead. I don't use the brightest setting because I fear it would dazzle oncoming cars too much.

Cat Eye Volt 800

This light is brilliant, literally! Great illumination, good battery and 100% reliability. I’ve now got 2 for pitch black commutes. For the discount price they can’t be beaten.

Good all round performance

I'm a fan of Cateye products which seem well designed and built. Not cheap but in my view not expensive for what you get. This is the second of these lamps I've bought (and have numerous Cateye rear lights). First is more than two years old and still going strong. More than enough lumens for road riding. Has proved very robust with excellent battery life. Bracket is neat and has been reliable - extra brackets readily available to allow lamp use on different bikes. At the current, discounted, price I reckon this offers good VFM.

Bright enough for unlit roads

I was looking for a light to use on dark, unlit country roads and this fits the bill (on the brightest setting). The beam is directed onto the road between 10 and 20 feet in front of you, enough to spot potholes etc, but not so much as to dazzle oncoming vehicles. Light is reflected back off road signs from a long way off and there is a little bit of sideways illumination. I'm sure there are brighter lights out there, but this is more than adequate for an unlit road on the brightest setting.

Good bright light, ok mount, expensive

Purchased this based on reviews from other websites but was cheaper on here, first impressions is its a well build light, not too heavy, only for road bike use really, but dissapointed as i thought being 800 lumen it would be bright enough to use on the dark trails in the forrest, but once the moon light goes within the trees it really is not up to the job! so would say its best to stick to the road bike with it, the mount is solid and the light doesn't move about, although iv'e had mine a week and i can no longer remove the light from the mount as the small tab to remove has gone soft and broken! Not really impressed, and no one seems to sell spare parts for it? Also the charging socket is ackward, usb only, doesn't come with a plug and the little rubber cover covering the charging socket keeps falling out. On the brightest setting, it lights up the road well but just not as bright as id have thought, the length of the beam isnt that great, So for £90 it may be worth looking elsewhere, wish i could send mine back and try another

Bike Lights Guide

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.

Anything else?

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.
