Two one-Watt LED’s face backwards against the reflector in this unit, and the light and beam pattern it gives out are very good with quite good side visibility too thanks to the small light-spill windows. 


Switching on is always in flashing mode first, you can then cycle through to high and low power modes via the sealed rubber covered switch at the rear.

The mounting will fit almost anything, and the whole light, charger, mounting and performance lives up to Cateye’s deserved reputation. 


We’ve had a production one of these for over a year now, we’ve abused it, and it still kicks out nearly the same burn times and has never gone wrong.
