How is the Flare R different to other rear lights?

Most lights on the market achieve the objective of making riders more visible at night. The light output required for this is not terribly high, meaning that ambient daylight can dwarf the visibility of that light during the day.

The Flare R was designed specifically for daytime visibility. The Flare R isn't simply a brighter light. It also has a specific design that optimises the light output.

I've seen lights with more output than the Flare R’s 65 lumen. Why is the Flare R better?

Making a bright light isn't the only quality required for maximising daytime visibility. While it’s true that there are other lights on the market with higher lumen, they don’t share the same design characteristics with the Flare R that optimise the visibility of that light output.

There are two main features of the Flare that make its 65 lumen output more visible than lights with higher lumen:

The focus of the lens is designed to make the light output the most attention grabbing in a higher range, in this case a viewing angle of 270 degrees.
The Flare R design prioritises viewing distance, meaning that even with a lower lumen count, the light is visible at a longer distance.
The amount of focus in the lens was chosen so that the light can easily catch people’s attention in daylight from very far distances while also providing a large viewing angle.

To illustrate how focus and viewing distance are related, consider the difference between a 60 Watt light bulb and a 1W laser. The 60 Watt bulb outputs many times more lumen than a 1W laser. However, the laser is much more focused than the light bulb, so it is visible from much further away.

More Information:
The Flare R is a game changer- a powerful 65 Lumen tail light that was designed to be daylight visible and can make cycling safer. It is an accessory that should be added to every bicycle that gets ridden on the road. This is not about gaining aftermarket sales, it is about taking care of your customers and making cycling safer.

The Flare R was designed for daylight visibility. It does this with 65 Lumens, balanced optics, and flash patterns that are optimised both in intensity and pattern for maximum visibility.

Balanced optics provide a focused beam ensuring visibility near and far- over 2km day or night.
Beam patterns were designed to draw attention for given conditions, day or night.
A balance of efficiency and power-65 Lumens, USB rechargeable, and weighs just 36g.
The Flare R features four unique modes. Two for day use and two for night use.

Day Flash mode, relies on powerful flashes of 65 Lumens strategically placed in an irregular flash pattern optimised for maximum visibility during the day – run time 5.75hrs
Day Steady, 25 Lumens of steady illumination great for group rides – run time 4.25 hrs
Night Flash, irregular flash pattern complemented by short pops of increased intensity optimised for night time visibility– run time 23 hrs
Nighttime Steady, provides 6 Lumens of steady light great for consistent night visibility – run time 21 hrs
The safety of daylight visible tail lights is here- Be Louder.

Maybe that's a good deal you should post for those looking for a cheap set of lights or other type of rear light-if it's a good deal post it? This is just for anyone looking for one of the best rear lights out there for day and night at a significantly reduced cost to other retailers

​There are quite a few "one of the best" lights out there.

Personally I'm more Cherrybomb and Moon, Pulsar than dropping £31.49 on a single light.

But I'm buying those at the going rate so not really deals.
