Bottom Line

Last year, this was a revolutionary product for the commuter. This year though, the Urban series from Light and Motion is a much better choice.

Strengths

  • 360 – Great side visibility with 360 degrees of attention, 180 – Decent side visibility
  • Lightweight
  • Great mounting systems, 180 is excellent
  • Innovative battery level indicator
  • Self enclosed battery
  • 180 – one piece system
  • 180 – Pace Line mode is great for group rides
  • USB charging

Weaknesses

  • Poor for singletrack
  • Front light isn’t the brightest nor widest
  • Front light can be troublesome to remove from mount
  • Needs additional rubber straps – replacement and a shorter one for front
  • Uses USB micro connector instead of the more common mini
  • $170 price is too much for a light of this output level
