The 300-lumen Cateye Volt is well-focused, reducing dazzle for other road users. It provides even light coverage with a graduation from bright centre to reasonable edge illumination – and though the area directly ahead of the front wheel is noticeably dimmer than the centre, the beam has great reach for faster riders.


Side visibility is excellent, and the power button has a positive feel. HyperConstant mode adds a pulsing flash on top of a steady beam for total visibility. The Volt 300 also uses Cateye’s robust FlexTight bracket, which can be fitted above or below the bar in moments and allows some rotation.
