    Strengths:    Amazing brightness, 4 modes for constant light, and 4 modes for flashing light. Small and lightweight battery. Did i mention how bright it is.

    Weaknesses:    handlebar mount didnt fit super perfect, no helmet mount included.

    Bottom Line:   
    Great light for the price, very easy to use and very bright. I ride with 2 friends all the time, one uses a Light & Motion ARC HID light and his was only a little brighter than mine and more pure white. The other uses a Light & Motion Solo Logic and the Dual Cross Pro I use is much brighter and has a whiter light and not a yellow light. The battery pack is small enough to fit perfect on the handlebars and be out of the way. I do wish it came with a helmet mount and not require you to purchase one for $20. And there is no way to mount it to make it look flush or decent without that mount. I would recommend this light to anyone looking to spend less than $200 and maybe even those looking to spend more. Cygolite's are very good.

    Strengths:    Very strong light, lights up the road very well. Cars are more aware & give me more room.

    Weaknesses:    Had a problem with charger when first used it, but Cygolite replaced it within days, (they were very helpful) other than that no weakness.

    Bottom Line:   
    Great light, will recommend it to anyone that asks.

    Strengths:    Probably highest lumens per dollar of any light I've been able to find, quick and easy mounting, reassuringly solid construction and electrical connections, tiny battery, smart charger, great run times.

    Weaknesses:    Doesn't come with helmet mount as standard.

    Bottom Line:   
    Big light output, and fantastic run times. Run times are as good if not better than advertised. At 3.5 hrs on high, this is going to handle most trails and give you plenty of spare time to deal with any punctures or repairs on the way.

    A lot of my MTB biking friends have been running for years on 10 and 15 Watt halogens and this light easily kicks out 2 to 3 times as much light.

    The beam pattern seems fine so far, good bright central beam, with a reasonable peripheral spread, but depending on your speed, and whether climbing or descending, you might have to tweak the handlebar angle as you go to get the really bright light to where you want it on the trail.

    As with any handlebar mounted light, there will be times that your bars are pointed away from the trail and it can be a little hard to see where what you're about to go over. But that's going to be true for most handlebar lights, so its not a specific gripe. I plan to get a Cygolite Mitty cross (350 lumens) and use it on the helmet and I reckon I'll have the perfect night bike set up. (Could attract every winged insect for miles tho')

    On the road when commuting even SUVs pull out to give me room on the inside when they see me in their rear or wing mirrors. This light buys you respect and space from other road users. It can be fun to see startled drivers trying to figure out 'what the hell is that?' when their dashboard lights up or starts blinking - if you've got the light on flash mode. I haven't had anyone pull out of a side road or driveway in front of me at nighttime since I got this light.

    You get plenty of warning when power starts to run down, and with 4 continuous power settings to choose from as well as even longer run time flashing modes, you're always going to get home from even the longest commute.

    5 chillis for the lumens per dollar and solid feel to the construction. A breeze to take on and off when commuting. 4 chills overall rating cos you have to send off to Cygolite to get a beam diffuser and helmet mount if you want them. If they bundled it all together, this would be a definite 5. Great for commuting and off roading.

    Strengths:    The blinding amount of light that comes out, seems rugged, the different flashing modes, small battery, and the sturdy mounting bracket.

    Weaknesses:    The battery cable is a little short

    Bottom Line:   
    Cygolite really stepped up to the plate with this light. For the price this is a very good light. I believe that this is plenty for the majority of riders out there, unless your into some extreme night riding. It is awesome on the trail and assume it would make an excellent commuter light also. I do wish it came with a helmet mount standard, but for the price I think that would be a bit much.

    Strengths:    Incredibly bright for such a small light. Not pinpoint like the prior product I used. User Friendly with a great bracket set-up on the handlebar.

    Weaknesses:    None yet.

    Bottom Line:   
    I definitely would recommend this light for the serious trail rider. Comes at a good price on ebay. The retail is generally much more expensive. This would be a great light for night commuters. YOU WILL BE SEEN, especially with so many settings for blinking lights and brightness. I commute over 30 miles per day and use trails as well as the road in the Inland empire and cars always see me coming up on a stop or a yield.

    Strengths:    Nicely put together. Perfect spread of beam width and distance for night riding. I use the helmet mount which works well.

    Weaknesses:    Battery lead a bit short, have to put the pack in my hydration pack.

    Bottom Line:   
    Hey this light is awesome, does what it sais and battery life seems to be as described. It's the first light that I feel safe riding with at night, with the 2 beam focus thing meaning I get an almost daylight reading of the surface and obstacles. On the road you get respect and dimmed lights from cars. Helmet mount is not too heavy but you know its there. There is an optional diffuser but the beam is so good I won't need it.

    Strengths:    LEDs never have to be replaced, lots of modes, tiny battery and smart charger

    Weaknesses:    None

    Bottom Line:   
    I picked this light because it seemed to have the most bang for the buck. It comes with 4 light modes and just as many flashing modes. On full power this light is bright! It lights up the trails well, the throw is excellent, and the beams are white not yellow. The battery is tiny and lasts pretty long considering its size. I haven’t pushed it to its limit but after a 2 hour ride the battery indicator showed I still had more than an hour of light left. Overall it works great and was well worth the money.

    Strengths:    Good brightness with long run times. Mounting bracket is easy to use and stays put throughout the ride. Robust casing. Very light package, I can't even notice the weight.

    Weaknesses:    The battery connector cable is a wee bit short...I would have liked to mount it to the frame instead of the headset.

    Bottom Line:   
    A solid light that makes me feel safer on the road and confident in the dirt. The lengthy burn time is a huge bonus, I've been around town multiple times without even plugging it in. The light output is excellent and disperses much better than I thought it would out of the box, I may not even need the diffuser lens as a result. I couldn't find anything to compete with this setup at the price point I found and would suggest it to anyone looking to feel more confident, regardless where they ride.

    Strengths:    Battery life, high brightness, good "bang for the buck" value, many options on brightness and beam flashing, very well built/rugged, light weight.

    Weaknesses:    The mounting bracket does not have left/right adjustment. Light tends to tilt left or right after going over a large bump despite tightening the adjustment screw. Cord going to the battery is short limiting battery mounting options to the stem.

    Bottom Line:   
    Great light for the money. I want a longer cord so I can mount the battery on the top tube but it appears the helmet kit must be purchased to get the cord. It is bright enough that a driver became confused the other night and pulled over to see what was coming.

    Strengths:    bright, small footprint on bike, easy mount/adjust, multiple light settings

    Weaknesses:    none so far

    Bottom Line:   
    I ride rural roads in Upstate NY. The DualCross Pro is bright enough and more for this. It is much brighter than my 20W NiteHawk. Oncoming cars nearly always turn down their high beams and I only ride with med high setting. The side spill is very good. Beam pattern is perfect for shoulder riding. The light takes up little bar space. The new heavy duty mount is very secure. The Li-ion battery mounts easily to the stem or head tube. Run times are as advertised. The perfect light for me.
