Model/Year: Lumina 950/Lumina 1000

Pros: Provide ample lighting, and have a great battery life.

Cons: Beam could be a little bit wider, but it's not a deal breaker.

Recommendation: These are fantastically made lights. They are very tough. They have hit low-hanging branches while mounted to my helmet without even a scratch to the lens. They also charge fairly quickly.

Model/Year: 2018

Pros: Lumina 1200 - bright, reliable and long lasting lighting from a single charge

Model/Year: 2014

Pros: Light, easy, to use charge lasts for quite a while
price is pretty low for a budget rider

Cons: the mount that comes with the headlight doesnt stay on to my road bike as well as id like.

Recommendation: The Lumina is 130 grams and the Solars is 45 grams. My wife got me this set for Christmas last year and i love it it i use it a lot when i run and ride later at night or early morning. It holds a charge very well and seems to be very durable.

Model/Year: lumina 750

Pros: very Bright, compact, no external battery needed, recharges quick and easy, good company to do business with

Cons: shell on light is a bit brittle and can crack and become hard to put on mount

Recommendation: I really like these Lights, I use it mainly for nite commuting in town. I also use it around the house since its way brighter then any flashlight I have. I also bought the lumina 350 as a xmas gift and although both of our shells cracked and became unable to put on mounts when I contacted niterider their customer service rep. barbarah sent me out two new shells and I got them within two days and am very glad I chose to do business with a reputable company cause it makes all the difference if you ever do experience a problem.

Model/Year: Lumina 700/2014

Pros: Light weight, good beam pattern, easy to use. Bright light.

Cons: Short USB charging cord

Recommendation: Buy it!

Model/Year: Night Rider Lumina 700 / 2014

Pros: Quick easy handlebar or helmet mounting, nice range and scope of light even on low, rugged, splined swivels incase you need to see to the right or left, weather proof, USB recharge, reasonable price.

Cons: NONE!

Recommendation: Definite Recommendation. This light at 30' gives you about a 6' wide scope of light. If you need to flip your rig and do some quick maintenance just unscrew the knob till it unhooks from the recess in the mounting bracket and pop it off. USB charging means no batteries to bleed your wallet.
