The Urban 200 is a simple, compact handlebar light that’s aimed at commuters. It offers impressive run times and a range of steady or flashing modes.
The light is fixed to its mount, which is a simple bungee and hook affair. The raised rubber button scrolls through the four modes, and the orange windows provide superb side visibility, illuminating your hands and levers.
The beam pattern is well controlled, with an arc from just ahead of the front wheel giving good peripheral vision. A brighter central area has great reach and blends well, with no hotspots.
