15% off til Sunday 12th Feb. I've been after a well made bright (genuine >500lumens) USB rechargeable front bike light, and here one is at a good price, then 15% off. Ordered. Great customer service with Alpkit. Yes, made in China, but the Alpkit source/make good stuff, and would not put their name behind cheap tat. Attachment looks more secure than some too (Knog Blinder Arc 5.5 which I almost bought). LED is XP-L Cree, 5 modes incl 2 flash frequencies. See where you are going, not just be seen!
A powerful bike light with tough aluminium shell suitable for mountain biking and road biking. Boson is small and compact with a Li-ion rechargeable battery and a Micro USB port.
Boson has 5 lighting modes which are cycled through (excuse the pun) with a single illuminated switch. High power pumps out 850 lumens making even the darkest commute a tunnel of light. Turn it down to medium power and you still have 320 lumens to play with - more than enough for negotiating un-lit cycle ways and paths.
If you want to be seen rather than see where you are going switch out to the 6 or 3 KHz flashing modes. Bright enough to be seen even during daylight hours, it really comes into its own during the hours of twighlight and dusk.
A mounting bracket is included (fits 18 - 36 mm bars and no special tools needed). Once attached Boson can be fixed or removed with ease. It allows 360˚ rotation for complete control over your beam of light; the textured lens projects a smooth wide beam ideal for nocturnal riding.
