Heat and ordered. Can't go wrong at that price although depending on your route, you might need brighter. Should be fine for me.

And from that "Lezyne - Engineered Design 1 year ago
The KTV Pro is a "to been seen light" only. It is not a headlamp. It was designed so cars and other riders can see you. Hope that helps!"

And after that video don't think I will, it doesn't seem very bright at all, 30 Lumen Pulse is 4 hours, 70 Lumen Burst is only an hour.

You are absolutely right, it is "I want to be seen" category light. Nevertheless in this price range this is the best available option. Can serve as a backup light as well, if your main fails, weighting only 55g.

After getting through many many cateye front lights on my bike, I found they were just not light enough and poorly made. I ended up getting a LED Lenser P7, together with a clamp from ebay for about £3 and haven't looked back since.

I now have 2 of them on my bike and they're great. Notice you can get a gift set off amazon at the moment for not much over your budget -

Yes, but for some reason the same front model as the rear one in that pack is only £4.99. It's worth noting the rear light is not the 'Pro' like the front which is why I bought the front only - with the only difference being one is white and the other is red!

Anyway, 'being seen' lights are just what I need. Thanks OP - quality, branded USB chargeable lights are hard to come by.

I agree. Cateye lights are shockingly poor quality and rarely last long. I think they road test them by getting an old lady to sedately ride around the company car park for five minutes. They are useless and fragile under normal road use. However, I still have 3 Cateye cycle computers which date from the late 1990s and they have been faultless.

Many thanks. Ordered.

Worth a look on PlanetX, they've loads on offer at the moment, lots of Knog offerings

Just what I needed - thank you!

It's harder to make "I want to see" lights that don't just blind everyone facing you, because most of them have round beams.

Bangood have a similar spec German standard dipped beam design which looks to be a better light than the Lezyne.

Good stuff - I've been using Philips SafeRide which are a lot more expensive... edit: but judging by the reviews, might last longer.

​Have you got a link to the clamp please?

Thanks OP

Hi - will this light be suitable for riding an unlit track in the dark?

No not really, it won't light up the route much, its more of a light to help people see you.

You will need to spend lots more on a branded option or go with the countless cheap Chinese offerings, they will be bright, but quality and battery life can vary.

If I got 2 sets could they be used on my audi quattro, as head lamps, the built in ones on my car no longer work, and I am looking for some replacements. I work night shifts at an old peoples home, so only need them for twilight periods.
