Not too rough.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

What a great price for something so essential to riding. The first one of these that I bought straight up fell off my bike while riding. It was disappointing for sure but at such a great price I was totally willing to pay for a replacement. The second one I fixed to my bag as a secondary light and a backup in case the batteries in my primary back light run out.

I would totally recommend this light for basic city commuting or a secondary light fosho.

Does what its meant to do!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I was looking to get a small light for my commuter bike and came across these. They're great lights for the price, and come with a few modes to make sure you're seen by cars passing by.

Simple mounting system, and it comes with two shims to ensure a tight fit around your seatpost. Comes with a clip as well to hook onto a saddle bag. Its a little heavy though, so I think the mount that it came with is the most secure.

Happy with my purchase, now I can have peace of mind while I'm out riding at night.

Simple and Cheap

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Inexpensive, simple and reliable makes this a great option for your commuter or a backup on your main rig. I actually use this as my backup taillight, and go with a NiteRider CherryBomb 1 Watt for my main rear light.

steady mobbin'

i use this light on steady setting. with full batteries, i can see the reflection (off the street) from this tail light about 2 feet behind my ride. in combination with a flasher you can't get much brighter than this. easy mounting system to seat post, i would not trust to clip it to my jersey.
