Big Blaze.

The lightweight Blaze Mk1 is a new addition to Exposure's extensive line of cycling lights. It fills the rear LED niche, but instead of relying on an external power source, it has its own fully rechargeable internal battery.

Like Exposure's headlights, the Blaze uses Smart Port Technology Plus. Essentially, it's a cylindrical plug that allows you to insert the smart charger. But, it also enables you to plug in accessories like additional LED taillights, back-up batteries, or a remote switch. You can even charge other USB-powered devices with the Blaze. It will automatically recognize each accessory and configure the system to take a charge or power accessory lights.

The Blaze also shares Intelligent Thermal Management (ITM), a patented technology. If the internal temperature gets too high, the light will automatically drop down to the next lowest setting. It will remain at the lower setting until the temperature inside the housing returns to within the normal operating range.

The Blaze features a CNC's aerospace grade aluminum body that houses the 80 Lumen Cree XRE LED and 1400mAh battery. This ensures the Exposure Blaze Mk1 is durable and weather resistant for a long life on the road.

How many hours do you get out of a charge with this light?

fire and forget

i haven't had a mount problem like previous posters. for me this light just works. Looong time before needing recharging, and super bright. I love that I don't have to think about or worry about my rear light being adequate, whether or not i should change the battery, etc.

Have two. Great light for riding during night and day. Keep it on during day rides to make it easier for cars to see you. Cars have stopped me during the day to tell me they were able to see the bright light a mile away. Good battery life.

On problem with the light is its mount. The mount has badly scratched the round seat tube on my SS frame and does not sit well on the integrated seat post of my carbon race bike. For a rear light costing as much as this light, the mount should be a lot better.

Somehow humidity found its way into one of the lights, despite the fact that I always put the plastic cap on.

Considering how much more visible this light makes you while riding on the road, it is one of the best things you can add to your bike.

Have you done any group rides with the light on? How do riders behind you handle the brightness of the light?

I set to flashing high and keep it on during day rides and have received no complaints from riders in my group. At night you will need to set it to steady low or turn it off if on a group ride.

I am in agreement with GHEP - I have issues with the light's mount. I purchased two of these lights due to their brightness, and I have been very impressed with the light's brightness and functionality. Now to the problem - the mount attaches to a seat post or tube via a rubber strap which makes it quick and easy to install. The problem is that the elasticity of the strap allows the light to "snap" back against my seat post every time I hit a bump in the road. I have this light mounted on my custom Seven with an Enve seat post. The light is scratching my seat post and I'm disappointed that there is not another option that allows you to securely mount the light off of the frame or seat tube. It's a lot of money to spend for a poor mooting set-up.

UPDATE: Recently one of my Exposure Flares and an Exposure STRADA (great road light) stopped working for no reason almost on the same day. I contacted Competitive with the problem and was directed to IBEX Sports Customer Support. I feared poor support and was pleasantly surprised. IBEX representative courteously instructed me to mail him the lights and a week later I had a replacement for both. No questions asked. I really like theirs lights, but is great to know that Exposure and IBEX stand behind their products in the event something goes wrong. Will continue to use and recommend their products...

Bright rear light w/ great battery life

This light like most exposure lights is fairly pricy. but I think it is worth it as it works well and the battery lasts a very long time. I charge it after every ~8 hours of use and I'm not sure that is even necessary.

My only complaint is that it has a little plastic cap to keep water from getting into the charger port. This cap is very fragile and for me ripped off almost as soon as I got the light. given how important it is to keep water out of the charger port, I would have appreciated it if exposure had built a (much) more sturdy cap for it.

I have the same problem. The cap is connected by a thin piece of plastic and it tore off and got lost. This is a frustrating design flaw. I LOVE the light, however, and plan to buy another for my second bike.
