Decent price on this one, almost posted it at £19.99 but after checking around others with similar specs I decided to give it a miss. Now it's dropped to £15 I don't think you can go far wrong. Reviews are also pretty good and that was based on a higher price point. Worth considering for sure

Thanks OP. Lost my front light at the weekend so perfect timing to get this as a replacement.

Hs anyone got one of these,does it mount securely?I've seen some of those cree ones with a rubber band or large o ring and I've always thought they look a little insecure

As a cyclist I appreciate the benefit of decent lighting, mainly for safety through visibility to other road users. However, as a motorist I regularly see lights so bright and poorly directed that they become a hazard in themselves. Use with care!

It mounts securely, but it will test you trying to get a snug fit. It tends to shake if you don't get it just right.

Owned 2 blackburn lights, both died too soon. About the same quality as unbranded lights imo

I'm on my daily commute in the dark now and have to position my bright light downwards to see where I'm going. Must be ok as normally motorists flash me if I'm dazzling them.
You're right that cyclists need to position their lights correctly.Doesn't take more than a minute to do. Although mine is on an O band so I can move the light as I ride.

Great Light...got one free with a bike from Tredz...solid manufacture and performance.
