RSP Night Burst review£9.99

Sleek-looking rear light

BikeRadar score3/5

We were impressed by the last RSP front light we tested, so we were interested to see how this Night Burst rear model would fare.

First impressions were good. With three rear-facing LEDs and one at each side, visibility is good from behind and either side.

It's not super-bright but there's a choice of four modes to help you stand out in traffic – solid, flashing, slow flashing and left-to-right flashing

so far so good, but the bracket is rather long and spindly, and you'll need a screwdriver to fit it – watch out because the soft plastic rounds easily. The white casing sets it apart from the crowd but shows the dirt and marks easily.

Overall. it's a decent enough light at a reasonable price, but there's little to set it apart from all the other models on the market.

CW has been riding mountain bikes for more than two decades now. He's the first to admit he's not the fittest or most skilful rider on the hill, but that doesn't stop him sweating up the climbs to have a blast on the downhills.
