Product Description

The Izone Pulse front bike light is extremely compact and designed for urban use. A simple rubber “o”-ring makes mounting and dismounting the Pulse light very quick. When not in use these lights will fit in your pockets or pack.

Not much bigger than a pound coin these lights contain a powerful half Watt LED that will help you get seen. There are four different light modes to choose from including Fast Flash, Slow Flash, Constant and Strobe. Up to 30 hours of runtime on Constant modes means you can rack up the journeys before you have to switch batteries.

A double click switch on function means you won’t accidentally turn the Izone Pulse bike lights on. Despite their size these lights pack a punch.

Features:

  • Powerful Half Watt LED
  • Constant, Fast Flash, Slow Flash and Strobe modes
  • Up to 30 hours runtime on Constant mode
  • Exceptional side visibility
  • Waterproof
  • Simple "o"-ring mounting bracket
  • 2 x CR2032 batteries

Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.

Stopped working after 1 use
by Anonymous user on 27/08/2019

Concur with previous reviewers re O rings too big, you will need to supply your own. I had one use out of a front and rear set before the front would not turn on and the rear would not turn off. Tested batteries- these were full. Haven't been out in rain so cannot blame damp. Seems to be a fundamental manufacturing fault with this model as these issies appear in other reviews. Shame, nice sturdy design and looked quite bright when they first worked.

Not worth it
by Kristian S on 24/11/2016

Bought this a year ago because it was cheap. Didn't liked it. Was difficult to mount on the hadlebar, but stayed secure once there. It turned itself off when I went over some bumps or just stopped working for no reason. Maybe had a faulty item. Will not buy again.

Total rubbish
by william m on 28/06/2016

My comment and review is based solely on the fact that the rubber bands which are used to attach the light to the bike are not fit for purpose. The small one snapped and the larger one is too thick to easily attach to the light. I spent ages trying to find something in my house that would help and eventually used thin plastic coated wire. Really no excuse for this fault I note that others have discovered this too. If it hadn't been so cheap I would have sent it back - that wasn't worth the haste. I am surprised that Tredz continue to sell such a product.

Great little light for the money
by Andrew C on 14/03/2016

Bought these to put on my son's go kart just to add a bit of visibility during the darker nights. Very small and easy to clip on to just about anywhere, which was needed as there's no real place for mounting things on the kart. Likewise you could attach these lights nearly anywhere on a bike. A few simple modes and nice press and hold to turn on means you could happily keep a pair as a backup and they'll always be ready. They'll not light up the world but they'll certainly add visibility to main lights out else get you home on a dark night on lot roads with a reasonable chance of being seen. Runs on coin batteries so wouldn't want to use constantly but as a booster / emergency they are great.

Bright but....
by Andrew k on 07/02/2016

I got the Izone front and Cateye rear. The Cateye is more fiddly to remove batteries but the Izone rubber band clip is very difficult if you want to be on and off with it. Both good light output but I would buy the Cateye every time.

Disappointing
by Andrew M on 18/12/2015

Nice and bright for such a small package, better than the lenzyne or cateye equivalent imho. But let down by the fixing. The slots are too small for the bands supplied and when I stretched one to squeeze it in, the band broke.

Making light work of dark nights
by Terry N on 31/10/2015

Wasn't sure what to expect for the money, but only wanted a light to supplement my mega powerful LED front light that people keep complaining about. Only used it once so far so good, neat relatively easy to pop on the bars (what's the thick ring for?) four options on the beam make it useful for WARNING cars and pedestrians of your impending arrival in their space. My advice would be buy one you won't be disappointed.

Front Bike Lights Guide

 

Front Bike Lights Guide

If you ride lit streets and roads after dark you will need lights so you can be seen by other road users. If you ride roads and paths with no street lighting then a front light will be needed so you can see, not just be seen. The brightness of a light is measured in Lumen.

Mountain bikers who wish to ride trails in the dark will need two super-powerful front lights. Front lights almost always have a more powerful output than rear lights.

Lumen is the measure of the brightness of a light, though it is worth noting that not all brands measure in the same way. The lens has a massive effect on what we see lit ahead, some lights will have a widespread while others will be more of a spot.

We have a Lights Comparison Tool and Rear Lights Guide to help you choose the right bike light for your needs.


Lumen Ranges

If you commute on lit-up city streets, you will need lights to be seen by, rather than to see by. A front light with around 100 lumens should be enough for city commuting, over 400 Lumen will be best if you ride fast or you live in a darker area. Add lumen to your front light requirements up to around 800 for a totally dark cycle path.

For comparison, the full moon on a clear night is about 1 lumen, a smartphone's backlight is around 20, and a single standard car headlight is 1200 lumens.

Road cyclists on a poorly lit road

The more lights you have, the more visible you will be to traffic so ideally, you should have more than one light with one on flash mode so you are seen clearly at junctions and crossings by other road users. Flashing lights are much easier to see by others especially when it is raining.


Side Visibility / Beam Spread

Bike lights will often mention having side visibility that adds safety to the light, often more common with rear lights the beam is designed in a way that spreads light out to the sides, manufacturers might give this in degrees, for example, 120° visibility.

The beam pattern of a light can be different, some are more like a spotlight, while others offer a widespread, some even give a combination of the two.  

Narrow-Wide Beam Pattern Comparison

Use our Light Comparison Tool to see the differences in a real-world situation.


Runtime Ranges

Modern low output LED lights last a very long time depending on the mode selected. And entry-level light could have a run time between 1-20 hours depending on mode. The flash mode of a light will give the longest run time, and this is perfect for a busy urban environment where being seen is more important than seeing.

Mid-range lights can last up to 80 hours, more than enough for a commute, and reassuring when you forget to charge or cannot find a USB lead at work.

High-end lights that are larger with hi-tech batteries and bulbs can give thousands of lumen in power for up to 36 hours, these units do cost considerably more, but for riding offroad, or away from street lights the performance is incredible. 

To compare popular lights we have made a Light Comparison Tool where we took a range of lights to a very dark cycle path to show the differences.


Commuter/Road Lights

What to look for

If you commute on lit-up city streets, you will need lights to be seen by, rather than to see by. A front light with around 100 lumens should be enough for city commuting, over 400 Lumen will be best if you ride fast or you live in a darker area. Add lumen to your front light requirements up to around 800 for a totally dark cycle path.

The more lights you have, the more visible you will be to traffic so ideally, you should have more than one light with one on flash mode so you are seen clearly at junctions and crossings by other road users. Flashing lights are much easier to see by others especially when it is raining.


Off-road Lights

Ultimate illumination

If you're a mountain biker and want to venture onto the trails after dark, you won't have any street lighting to guide you. That's when super-powerful front lamps with rechargeable batteries come into their own. Lighter units have the battery built into the light body, while the longest lasting and most powerful lights have a separate battery unit attached to your bike, in a bottle cage mount, for instance.

One light on the bars and one attached to the helmet work best. lights in this category tend to have thousands of Lumens. At this High-end the battery technology has vastly improved usage and charging time over cheaper lights. The mounts are designed to cope with the rigours of mountain biking, with lenses that optimise the magnification and spread for trail riding.


Batteries and charging

There are two main power sources for your lights: ordinary batteries such as AA which need replacing when they run out, or those with a rechargeable battery built in. Rechargeable lights used to be far more expensive, but there are now many cost-effective and compact units available which can recharge from your computer with a USB cable. 

This makes them a brilliant option for commuters, who can charge them at their office desk during the day.

There are other ways to charge your lights. Dynamo hubs store charge from your rotating wheel. They do require a new wheel to be built but need no power source other than your own legs. Modern dynamo hubs have very minimal drag and are the perfect choice for long distance touring a bikepacking. There are even a few solar power lights for totally carbon neutral cycling!


Technology

The majority of modern front lights use Lithium-ion batteries that give long burn times for relatively short charge time. Most lights have different modes of power including a flash or strobe mode. Higher power modes will use more battery.

The lens has a large effect on the light, though there are variations most will give a spot with a wider but less bright halo around the centre.

Mountain biker using advanced Exposure lights on both helmets and handle bars

Most modern lights especially those designed for off-road use will have a water-resistant rating with an IP number. In brief the larger the number the better protected against water and dust the light will be.

Lights commonly use either clamps or straps/bands to attach. For off-road lighting clamps are common helping the light stay in place over rough terrain, often featuring a quick release system.
