    A tremendous light for the price, very well made and great for the unlit country roads of Buckinghamshire where I am living at the moment. Also very speedily sent and well packed. Many thanks for a great product and excellent buying experience!

    Great value for money light. I’ve used it for commuting, riding my local trails at night, and also some night running over the past month. Light unit is nice and light so doesn’t bounce about when running with it on the headstrap. More than enough light for running familiar trails, or where plenty of guiding features, also for Night-O. Maybe not quite enough for night nav on the bigger fells though when needing to search out more distant features. When riding, there’s enough light for riding at a good pace on fairly techy stuff, maybe not quite enough for racing at night as the beam is a bit narrow and doesn’t penetrate too far into the distance. The burn times are adequate for what I use it for, but always make sure to disconnect the battery when not in use as the charge indicator lights can run the battery down quicker than expected. Overall it seems well made, well protected for winter use, nice and light, and a good power output for my own training and commuting needs. Service from BrightBikeLights was very efficient with immediate confirmation and a swift delivery.

    I bought this light to try and use it on my cycle helmet but when it arrived there was no helmet mount in the box. I contacted Trevor and he replied immediately apologising for the oversight. Trevor said he would send me out the helmet mount and include a free head strap which both arrived a couple of days later. The helmet mount is excellent and feels very secure and the head strap will be very useful for night time winter walks. Fantastic customer service. The light itself is very bright and lights up the trails extremely well at night. I have already recommended Trevor and bright bike lights to friends.
