Small but bright from all angles and with a simple tool-free mount that works well.

Powered by two AA batteries this light gave well in excess of Cateye’s claimed run times of 80 hours constant and 320 hours flashing (we recorded 91 and 328).

The LEDs are set forwards in the open lens design, making the impressive light output for such a small unit really stand out from the side and obtuse angles, and although it’s not bright enough to ride with on dark roads at speed, this is a cracking little light to be seen with. When you power up the unit it starts in flashing mode so that when your batteries are running low you do not need to cycle through the full power setting first, resulting in a light that will at least flash to get you home on virtually flat batteries.
