Date Reviewed: October 16, 2009

Strengths:    Easy to mount, stays put, nice quality

Weaknesses:    more of a spot light than a flood, didnt light up enough of the trail to make it useful for mountain biking

Bottom Line:   
just didnt like it for trail riding at night. Beam is to narrow and didnt light up enough of the trail. I'm gonna return in and try to upgrade. Probably a great commuter lite or good for roadies. I dont recommend it for trail riding.

Strengths:    well designed
sturdy
good battery life


Weaknesses:    not the brightest one around
a bit bulky for my road bike


Bottom Line:   
I love this light. It's bright enough for commuting at night, on well and not-so-well lit streets. Batteries last a long time, and it's quite handy as a flashlight. Fits well on the handlebars. If it happens to point towards you it's not annoyingly bright. I picked it over EL520, which gives more power that I didn't feel I needed.
