We’re the first to properly test this brand spanking new offering from Cateye and its new reverse lens technology lighting out on the roads.


The single LED is placed at the front of the light, pointing backwards to a lens which then focuses the light and aims it forwards. This results in almost all of the available light from the LED being used rather than allowing it to spill or spread in unwanted directions.


Powered by its own 4.8v Lithium Ion battery pack and coming complete with dedicated charger, the Single Shot is very bright, but also highly visible thanks to the front lens design. It’s a superbly well made unit with a compact and neat alloy body, robust seals, and a very smooth switch. The Flex-Tight mounting is excellent, and run times from a full charge were exactly one hour in excess of the claimed 2 hours on high, 6 hours on low, and 24 hours flashing.
