Pros: Great light and field of view Mounting bracket

Cons: Battery pack seems cheap

Recommendation: Works great, has many different modes, excellent field of view. Batter lasts and holds a charge, but looks cheap.

Pros: Light weight, great run time on high. Nice light pattern. Mounts for both handlebars and helmet. Customizable light settings.

Cons: cable is taught when running battery pack down to jersey pocket, could be a tad longer for those on the taller side.

Recommendation: Using this as a helmet light (my only light at this point) and it works great. Easily adjusted while riding and throws a nice wide beam out there to light up the trail ahead of you. Great battery life on high, so no worries there, but you can go medium if concerned and it's still bright enough to run as a solo light.

Pros: Small and light.
Cord plugs in firmly and stays put.
Includes velco for mounting the battery.
Bar clamp fits tight but can be adjusted or removed in seconds, with one hand.

Cons: Could be brighter, for the price

Recommendation: I borrowed one of these for racing in 24 Hours of Moab. It is rated at 300 lumens, so about the same as a Light & Motion Stella 300. In the real world, the Stella seems a little brighter, probably due to better optics.

This light is suitable for recreational riding and as a second light for racing, but on its own it is a little underpowered for all out race speeds.

The light gave me zero issues when I used it, and the friend I borrowed it from uses it all the time and he has had no issues.

It comes with a clamp and inserts for either 31.8mm or 25.4mm bars and the clamp mechanism is beautiful in it's simplicity. When bar mounted it can easily be adjust with one hand while riding.
