This little light is typical of the large number of small LED torch style lights available now, but it's one of the nicest made we've seen.

This little light is typical of the large number of small LED torch style lights available now, but it's one of the nicest made we've seen.

The beam isn't powerful enough to ride off-road with, but it'll get you along the road/path on the way to and from the serious stuff. It lasts pretty well too and its compact size leaves your bar uncluttered.

It's had some horrible weather chucked at it and handled it fine - and the big button on the back can't be missed, however cold your fingers are. The thumbwheel tightened mount has a QR slot to speed up fitting, too. The only downside is its reliance on CR123A batteries, which are expensive, and not as easy to find as AAs, but with run times this long things could be worse.

Freelance Writer, UK
Guy started filling his brain with cycle stats and steaming up bike shop windows back in 1980. He worked the other side of those windows from '89 while getting a degree in “describing broken things covered in mud" (archaeology). Dug historical holes in the ground through the early '90s, then became a pro bike tester in '97. Guy has ridden thousands of bikes and even more components the world over since then and can remember them all in vivid, haunting detail. Can't remember where the car keys are, though.
