StarStarStarStarStar Amazingly Bright

Extremely Bright, you can be seen from extremely far away. Many settings offer a lot of options and the rechargeable battery makes it greatly user friendly.

Pros

It's almost too bright, it hurts on high, BUT you can definitely see it on the brightest sunny day! Even on the lowest setting it's bright.

Cons

none

StarStarStarStarStar Safety plus

by
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

Lighting on a moving bicycle is almost always a plus. I've been a vehicular style cyclist for over 30 years and I credit my few collisions to my effort to be visible on the road and behave in a legal predictable fashion particularly on streets roads and highways.

Cons

None

Other Thoughts

This is the 200 year anniversary of the invention of the bicycle. The bicycle is still the most efficient form of transportation and can be enjoyed by folks from 5 to 90 years of age.
With some exceptions, I can ride and pause just about anywhere I choose without impeding anyone else or polluting the air we breathe.

Works well, no issues

StarStarStarStarStar Makes me a little less nervous on the road

by

Pros

Bright
Easy to use

Cons

My first one fell out of the mount on just my third ride with it. Buying the second one was more painful.

Other Thoughts

I've been hit from behind twice, both times while riding inside a bike lane. That painted line doesn't do much protecting. This taillight helps me believe I'll see my family again after each bike ride.

Great light ultra bright great for day road rides . If used at night in a group be sure to use one of the lower settings.

StarStarStarStarStar Very bright light

by
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: average

Pros

The light is very bright and I feel more secure with light on the rear of my bike. So far it seems to hold a charge for my up to 3 hour rides.

Cons

The mounting strap is way too short. There is no way this will mount on my Carbon Fiber seat post. The manufacturer needs to make allowances for the fact that this unit might not be mounted on a traditional round seat post. Fortunately I have another mounting bracket for another light that has a longer strap and I can use it for this light. If I didn't have it I would have returned the light as unusable. If a rider has any seat post other than the traditional round post do not order this light.

Other Thoughts

Need to provide a longer strap for mounting this light on carbon fiber seat post on many road bikes in use today.

StarStarStarStarStar GREAT TAILLIGHT, I HAVE 3

This light is very bright and very light. I can get in a week of rides between charges and I always have a fully charged backup in by bike bag. They are not kidding when they say daylight visible flash. The highest setting is too bright for the bike path, but is great on the street. I love Modern Bike because they sell quality lights that my local bike shop does not carry.

Pros

Very bright. Daylight clearly visible. Easy to clamp on to bike in many configurations.

Cons

None really.

Other Thoughts

You would be unwise to ride without this product on the road.

StarStarStarStarStar Brightness loss

by
Ownership: two weeks
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

I bought this to be noticed during daylight riding with high vehicle traffic. For testing I had my wife drive up behind me about a half mile away during daylight. She was impressed with the BRIGHTNESS of the light and attention getting flash pattern. She now feels more confident with my riding during the daylight and no problems if I do a evening ride.

Cons

Lousy mount. I had attached the light to my TOPEAK bag light strap (has been used with various other tail lights with no problems) I got a few rides in with the Solas 150, then recently after a tame ride, the light was no where to be found. It apparently broke off. Boo hoo

Other Thoughts

I really did like the bright light patterns and disappointed, the mount failed.
