Blackburn Mars 4.0 rear light review



Blackburn Mars 4.0

BikeRadar verdict

90.0 out of 5 stars

"Well-sealed, easy to use & highly visible. Highly recommended."

Monday, October 6, 2008 5.00pm By

With a main one watt LED and two smaller side facing LEDs the Mars 4.0 is one of the best sealed rear lights. 

A tool-free removable rear plate covers the batteries, but beyond the battery plate everything is sealed. The power button is part of the secondary seal behind the internal battery tray. 

A lifetime warranty and excellent performance are matched by a run time of over 150 hours, and there’s an array of top quality tool-free mounting options.
