Allegedly an RRP of £45. These get good reviews as a decent commuter front light. for example:

'The Smart light was amazing, lighting up the various pot-holes and hazards in plenty of time for me to avoid them. It even prompted oncoming cars to dip their lights long before they reached me (something that didn't happen with my older lights).
It was very easy to attach and adjust to my bike and as yet seems secure enough. Not sure about the battery life as I've only had it for a short time but as I only use the 'low power' mode (which is bright enough) I don't think this will be a major issue. The only slight issue I have (similar to other reviewers) is that the beam is quite narrow but in combination with my other light this is not a problem.
Overall, the Smart bspoke light does a great job. I am tempted to get a second one for the strobe effect alone! For less than £20 it's an ideal commuter light.'

have 3 of these....good lights...not sure about rrp but well worth £13....think i paid about same

used to have cheap lights from dealextreme which were awful - poor light and build

Does it remove easily from the bracket, to take away when leaving the bike chained up?

I'm not sure. There are are 82 reviews at Wiggle, I checked a few but didn't see anything specific on that point.

could do with another light for darkness - ordered one

Cannot believe that RRP is that high, it looks cheap.

paid £17 for this last week, decent light although bracket is very poor, i had to latch it onto my grips to stop it rattling, very good light tho

bracket was fine for me for 2 bikes and a little more problematic with the sons bike - but a bike prob not a light prob due to lack of space

Not a bad light at all, I use mine on the strobe setting alongside a bigger and admittedly more expensive main light for seeing where I am going.

For a normal commuter this will be perfect, but my route is unlit a lot of the way so I needed something with a bit more humph.

RRP is clearly inflated, but for £13 you can't complain, compliment it with the Blackburn Mars 3.0 Rear Light for a good combo.

Heat added. Good price, tempted.

Good light - good brackets - well worth £13 and 100 times better than Poundland & the like lights.

Can you let us know what your "main light" is ? I'm setting up my old bike to cycle at night, so this sounds a good "2nd light" - but the range of "main lights" is mind boggling .......(should I say I'm dazzled by the choice ?)

DO NOT BUY! I bought this. ended up falling off the bike, the connection between the clamp and the light is rubbish. It fell off the bike the first day i got it. ended up smashing to piece in the end. AVOID!
