    It is an easy 300 Lumens to add to you helmet to help on those night rides. Plus a long run time and ability to adjust the brightness make it unbeatable

    Pros
    Lightweight
    Bright
    Easy to use

    This is a solid little light that pumps out 350 high-quality lumens. The construction is excellent and the burn time seems great. I think the price has been dropped on this light, however, even at $150-160 it is still about $70 more than a 900 lumen magic shine. Yes, the quality of construction is much higher on the minewt, but that many more lumens for such a lower price...

    Pros
    Performance, build.

    Cons
    Price. On/off switch is on battery pack, which can be difficult to get at if its in your pack.

    great light for road riding. Great quality. I'd buy another one

    Pros
    Bright light for its size. Mounts easily, and the light will run for quite some time. I believe 2 straight hours on the brightest setting.

    Cons
    I would not use this on trails. Still not bright enough for that.

    Get this light for efficient off road riding. Not quite a race light, but it would work for that purpose.

    Pros
    An easy, sturdy mount with three different bands for various size handlebars. A nice beam and good light output. Flash option is like riding in a disco. Perfect for urban riding and solo commuting

    Cons
    One setting flash is too bright for dark streets.

    Not a bad light, debated on this or Cygolite's option but I really liked the pattern and build quality on the Minewt. Fit and finish is very nice and the light is tiny but creates a huge amount of output.

    I haven't had the issues the other reviewer had but I only use this light on the handle bars. So far the cable has stayed in with no issues.

    Picked this up on sale for $150 so I think for the price, it couldn't be beat, even with the few minor drawbacks.

    Again, I can't speak for helmet use but on a bike itself, I'd recommend this light. :3

    Pros
    Bright!
    Good pattern, a mix of flood and spot
    Easy to mount on bars
    Small

    Cons
    Battery life could be 1 hour longer on high
    No helmet mount included
    Charge time

    I borrowed this from a teammate for my night lap at 24 hours of Moab. (The unit is about 2 months old) This light is awful! I mounted it to my helmet and ran the cord behind my back and placed the battery back in my jersey pocket. The cable would easily and frequently come unplugged from the battery pack, which of course made it turn off. Even worse was when I plugged it back in, it didn't return to an 'On' state, so then I would also have to fish around for the hard to reach power switch.

    This occurred about 10 times and I finally gave up and decided to run with just the light I had mounted on my handlebars.

    I was finally able to borrow some duct tape from another rider and I fixed it, but not before it cost me 15 minutes on my lap time.

    Back in the support tent, I talked to several other riders (one pro) who had similar issues with this light and the more expensive Pro 700. All of them were now running Light & Motion Stellas.

    Pros
    Bright, wide beam pattern.
    Good battery life.

    Cons
    Heavy when mounted on a helmet.
    Cord will not stay plugged into the battery pack.
    On/off switch is on battery pack.
