I bought this light for use during the day and liked the 125 & 250 lumens function. Really happy with purchase and very bright.

Good light but fiddly and difficult to charge

Spendy product, well built (not plasticky) but charging is difficult as port is deep within the body, and rubber closing thingy not easy to operate. It further is not liking many other charging cables while it is the same connector. Mine stopped working after about 6 months due to dirt / water in the charging port.

Failed after 6 months

This was a great light until it stopped working. I returned it under warranty but apparently the failure was due to water and dirt ingress in to the charging port. Naturally I believe that I always carefully closed the port with the rubber bung, although it is quite fiddly to do properly. At this point I am questioning the wisdom of a charging port on the bottom of a rear light where it is bound to take the full force of dirt and water from the rear wheel. Overall I cannot recommend this product.

Truly powerful rear light

Forget the reviews which say it is too bright. When you have dark, wet or foggy conditions this is the kind of light you can crank up to 250 lumen and feel safe. The other settings are also bright. Be carefully getting it too wet I nearly killed mine cleaning the mud off. It is a bit bulbous and the plastic fitting would benefit from a rubber strip but it fits on nice and secure. For me it was this or the Exposure Blaze MK2 at £30 extra. Yes it does require weekly charging if you ride every day or complete a long tour. Overall excellent and good value for £30-£40 you will notice drivers giving you a bit more respect

Bright but fiddly

I'm impressed by the brightness, cars seen to give more space when passing. The on/ off switch can be a bit fiddly to operate sometimes requiring a really hard press.

Safe as houses

I've had the light for some months now and I use day and night. I find vehicles really take notice of the light on flash mode and give me in general fantastic clearance when they overtake me. For £35 to stop vehicles squashing me to death, it's a no-brainer - use day and night - sometimes can go from bright sunshine into very poorly lit stretch of road under a dense canopy of trees/leaves

Rear Lights Buying Guide

 

Rear Lights Buying Guide

While front lights can reach up to and above 1000 Lumens, at the rear anything from 20 to 100 lumens is plenty. Multiple rear lights are the best way to be seen from behind, especially when on the flash mode.

With one attached to the seatpost it can be good to have another on the chainstay, backpack or helmet. 20 Lumen would be sufficient for commuting in urban areas. For those living in darker areas or riding on dimly lit roads, a rear light closer to 100 lumens would be best.

Take a look at our Rear light comparison tool to help you choose the right bike light for your needs.


Wearable lights

Extra visibility

If you commute on lit-up city streets, rear lights are more than essential. To have a second light high up and in the eye-line of drivers and other road users is a very good idea. With reflective clothing and/or accessories like backpack covers and jackets, adding a wearable rear light will really make you stand out. Most backpacks will have a loop or somewhere to secure a light, using the strap or mount that come with the light.

Usually not a concern for MTB riders, nothing extravagant is needed for the rear, just so the rider can be seen on any road or path that might lead to the trail.
