The Blinder Road 2 is an extremely simple-fitting front light, requiring slightly more width on the bar than most, though it is unobtrusive and totally stable.
It is controlled by two small integrated rubber buttons on the top. One switches between the four modes (including narrow or wide beams), while the other toggles high and low power.
The Knog has a very even beam pattern, stretching far across the verge with a brighter centre and great reach – easily enough for most riders on dark country lanes. The wide beam does scatter light, and although it’s not the highest powered, the light pool is very usable.
