So far this is the best I've used - the light is super brightI do a lot of night riding in rural areas devoid or streetlights, so it can be seriously dark. I've used other lights, some that were cheaper, some that weren't specifically for the purpose of biking, with a variety of mounting systems, etc. So far this is the best I've used - the light is super bright, the hood around it focuses it ahead of you so there's no light getting in your eyes (my main problem with helmet mounted lights), it attaches solidly to the handlebars. I only use it on the dimmest setting so as to preserve battery life, and I still find it to be plenty bright enough. I've had lights before with the same mounting system (rubber strap around the bar) get stolen, and this light is far more appealing than the others were, so I'm sure to pull it off (a quick and simple task) and bring it with me if i'm leaving my bike locked outside the bar for any amount of time. All together, I recommend it. The best and hopefully last light I'll buy.
Bright, easy to mount, and no batteries required.Very bright lights and since they are rechargeable, you don't have to hassle with loading them with batteries that end up in landfill when they run out of juice. I especially like that no hardware is required to mount lights to handlebars. This makes it really easy to remove lights to avoid theft, but without having a bulky permanent mount on your bars. I like the first light I bought so much that I purchased two more.
Excellent light. VERY happy with my purchase.Excellent light. VERY happy with my purchase. I had a minor issue that was quickly resolved by customer support. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this lamp ! This is a truly great value. I have been using 5-6 days a week for just over two months now, and it works exactly as described. Mostly good weather, with a handful of damp mornings, and 2 or 3 wet days (one was a soaking downpour!) Over a mix of decent and badly paved roads, some trail, and mixed-surface bike trails (paved / crushed stone / packed gravel), so it has gone through some decent rough terrain, bumps, weather, occasional curbs and one minor spill - and it just keeps working. The add-on of the likewise excellent taillight just makes this buy a no-brainer. Do it.
Incredibly brightI was astonished how bright this flashlight is! It's awesome, I use it for everything, not just my bike. I accidentally left this flashlight at my house in Canada, and I missed it so much I could not wait to get it back in a few weeks, so I bought another one. Now I have one at both my houses.
Exactly What I was Looking forLight mounts securely to both my MTB and Road Bike handlebars. It has 3 brightness settings which all work great for different lighting settings. Rechargeable battery via USB is convenient. The battery charge lasts longer than I anticipated, I got a full week of night rides in before I needed to recharge! If you're looking for an affordable, visible and powerful light then I wold recommend this product.
Best value on a great rechargeable light set!I have been using both the Cycle Torch Shark 300 and Cycle Torch Shark 500 over the past month or so. Both are excellent rechargeable lights and are incredibly bright. I like using the Shark 500 for evening trail riding when I need more light because the 500 is MEGA-SUPER BRIGHT! (we're talking light of God bright!) I actually use the Shark 300 more when I'm riding around the city, it's SUPER bright on the highest setting and even the lowest setting is still quite bright. Both are easy to use and recharge by USB which is wonderful. The flexible mount is easy to use (mount and remove) and also means that you can use it on any bike because the mount is not fixed. I was concerned that the mount was too flimsy and might not hold the lights, however, they have held extremely well and are also quite secure. I love the rechargeable taillight (included with the Shark 500) and had a difficult time keeping for myself because my husband wanted it. The Shark 300 came with a non-rechargeable taillight which uses button batteries, so I definitely prefer the rechargeable taillight over the battery model. Both are good, bright taillights with flashing and steady options and easily mountable with the same flexible-type mounting bracket. Both the Shark 500 and Shark 300 light sets are packaged in attractive reusable gift/storage boxes which are very impressive. To me, these are the best value going for rechargeable lights! Once you go rechargeable, you'll never go back!
Great bang for the buckFirst off, the build quality and construction feel great. I love how it does not get hot and it is fairly light too. I had no problems mounting it on the bike, even on top of the handlebar wrap of my road bike. As for the light output, at just 300 lumens it won't be the brightest, but it was brighter than I thought at the brightest setting.The light is wide and most intense in the middle and the different working modes are useful as is the one-touch hold to shut off feature. The USB charging support is actually pretty cool and convenient. It also comes in a nice box and with clear instructions. In a pinch, this light is portable enough to take on a night hike and can easily fit in your pocket.
Light up your World!This bike light is the bomb. It shines bright like a Diamond. It's meant to be a bicycle lamp and it's perfect for its intended use. It has different brightness settings to adjust for what your need and your battery life. Also, there's a strobe light setting mode that can be used to easily alert someone or for more visibility. Safety is the most important aspect and this light makes riding a bike at night very safe. This is perfect for those that like to use their bikes at night. You won't even know it's night time. The tail light also has a solid mode and a strobe mode which is great. If you don't want to use it as a bike lamp, honestly it will be a great regular flashlight. And it uses a simple Micro USB connector to charge, so you can charge it in your car or house which most chargers and have it for emergencies. It takes about 4 hours to charge and last about 2-5 hours depending on the brightness settings used. That's the best I've seen in any chargeable flashlight. I definitely recommend this!
Note: It's not as big as it seems in picture. It is about the size of a pocket light and very portable.
Pros - nice and compact - main light has different modes from strobe light, bright, and dim. - comes with a tail light - which has a steady state mode, fast mode and slow mode - charges fully in only 4 hours - extremely bright - (pictures below) - can use a a normal light
Night Time RidingMy 17 year old is a waitress, and works nights. When it's time for her to clock off, it is usually dark outside. We only live a short distance from her work, so she rides her bike.
This headlight and taillight set has been a blessing for the rides home. Not only does it provide her with the necessary light to help see where she is going, but makes her very visible to vehicles both behind and in front of her.
Both lights have different settings, from a solid, bright light to bright flashing lights. She prefers the solid lights on both the head and taillight.
Installation was a breeze thanks to the instructions, and the lights stay securely mounted. They are rechargeable lights, so we don't have to worry about batteries. She leaves the front mount on all the time, but brings in both lights when she returns from work. They require a charge every several days, depending on use.
