I hope you cycle off-road, a pair of those strobing could send drivers into epileptic fits, which is not likely to be a good thing when they're driving towards you! Heat added, personally I'm a fan of lower key lighting though, so won't be getting one myself.

Epileptics aren't allowed to drive though.

Sorry strictly a roadie. I use a high powered constant beam helmet lamp to counteract the strobe effect. I can point this directly at drivers to take their mind off the strobing.

Makes me laugh to see them grasp at their sun visor on a dark winters morning. :giggle:

I'm a roadie too, but I just use an array of single LED lights (favourite tip is the to have a bungee type LED on your front and rear hubs). The reason being that I've been transfixed like a rabbit in headlights by cyclists with super-bright LEDs. I swear I was driving at them unintentionally.

Horses courses, but I think very bright is great to see (pointed to hit the ground 5-10 meters ahead of you), but to be seen, lots of single LEDs in lots of locations are better.

I have two of the older version of these set to flash that I use with two cateye opticubes. I use them on unlit country roads and can see fine.

Often cars slow to see what the weird lighting is.

Great light this, lights up road signs from a hell of a distance.

they are if they haven't had a fit for a few yrs... this could cause one within a non epileptic

Good Price

The rear one looks good as well http://www.jejamescycles.co.uk/id16773.html for under 6 quid.....
#12
i have several of these and don't find them very effective. not bright enough to see by, but good to be seen by. weirdly, the 3led version is brighter than the 5led that i bought (perhaps a dud 5).
SMART rear lights are good though (the superflash particularly)
#13
thanks - ordered.
was gonna get from wiggle or the bay @ £13 - mate has one v.bright - I have old 3led version which is OK still but 2 is better than one.
#14
how does this one compare? Probably a bit less bright but is cheaper.

i would recommend at least a 1W LED front light

even this is better value (3LED version for £8,32) as its as bright as the 5 afaik, possibly better runtime too
http://www.jejamescycles.co.uk/id36902.html

edit: no get this! claims to be a 1watt LED and comes with a rear for 403 rear kidney (not the best but excellent additional) for £10.76
http://www.jejamescycles.co.uk/id46438.html
that would probably be my choice for the small lights.. tempted to try one actually and see how it compares to the old 4AA 1 watts. it should blow away any 3LED or 5LED lights (those are **** LEDs)

i would not bother with halogen any more - too short runtime, too yellow, bulb to break.


for rear, the best available imho is the 1/2 watt superflash (LAM317R ).. i buy in bulk here:
http://cyclebasket.com/products.php?plid=m6b0s509p0
delivery cost high but a great company and many cheap products from them.. :)

http://www.jejamescycles.co.uk/id17668.html
should be just as good a "be seen" light (ignore number of LEDs, this is not the issue) and cheaper, but i haven't used this one

p.s. am i ever going to get any rep on this site?!

"I'm a fan of lower key lighting though"

I was as well until about two weeks ago. I've always thought bright and flashing lights were bad because they grab too much attention and because they wipe out your night vision. Then I got doored while cycling at night with a non-flashing light on. Biggest blackest bruise I have ever had and I know I am only alive because there was no traffic at the time so I didn't get run over after ending up flattened in the middle of the road. Now I cycle with the flashing lights. I want to grab their attention. I am more likely to be injured than anybody in a car so I'll let drivers worry about drivers while I worry about me.

Thanks for the link I ordered this one as it has a quick release mechanism. Cheers :thumbsup:

This is an AMAZINNNG light for the cash. I've got a couple strapped to my bike and they do a damn good job at lighting up the road aswell as enabling drivers to see me!

I bought two of these to take my light collection upto 8!! You can never have enough light's with the crazy drivers we have on the roads these days......

HIGHLY RECOMMEND this product & J.E.James!!!!!!

I'm waiting for my previous post to be modded because i put a link in it to the other light i bought from J.E.James but this is a cracking deal!!....(I don't need anymore lights, i dont need anymore lights)". But if i did i would buy more of these!!!

this could cause [a fit] within a non epileptic
You're grasping at straws. The possibility of this causing someone a fit is minuscule compared with the likelyhood of it preventing a cyclist being hit by an inattentive driver.

The trouble with that sort of thing is that they are so damned bright that they blind any poor cyclists behind you.

if someone looks straight into it up close will hurt, but in fog, and rain, at a distance.. i'll use them. how they generate so much light on two AAA batteries i have no idea :)

and btw - only £6 something at cyclebasket (both the black 1W front and 1/2W rear)
#23
This front light looks good as well for £5.86p http://www.jejamescycles.co.uk/id17668.html
