Strengths:    Very bright, relatively long burn time.

Weaknesses:    Handlebar grip was too large for handlebar.

Bottom Line:   
I love this light! I frequently ride for as much as three hours at a time after dark, so I needed something with a relatively long burn time. I'm also riding on trails with virtually no lighting some of the time, so I needed something that really lit up the path. I found this one on eBay for $100, and it really does the job.

The one problem I had was that the clamp was too big for my handlebars, causing the nose-diving that others have references. I solved that by buying a packet of jar grippers at the Dollar Tree, folding two of them up, and rolling them between the clamp and the handlebar. Problem solved!

Strengths:    600 well directed lumens. Great as a handheld to chase your cat in the dark.

Weaknesses:    All is good.

Bottom Line:   
It's a light - it's bright! I just wanted to leave a note to those of you having problems w/ the light nosediving... Install the mount bracket backwards - with the screw at the front of your handlebars. Slipping on the light requires a little more push but it will click in fine. The light will be more centered and you won't get the nosediving.

Strengths:    strong light, decent battery life, no cables!!!!!!

Weaknesses:    battery life is considerably shortened in cold (Canadian winters)

Bottom Line:   
Light is more than adequate for any type of night time biking (road or off road) Excellent run time - I rarely use the high beam - normally medium low which gives me hours of run time! Good service from the manufacturer - light quit working after about 10 months of use - sent it back to Cygolite and they gave me a new light. This light is compact and very quick & easy to attach and detach (handlebar mounted only) with no cumbersome cables or external battery. In combination with the helmet mounted DualCross night riding is like riding @ high noon. Very satisfied with Cygolite products.

Strengths:    Simple and easy to use. Just plug it in and charge it up - no cables, no external batteries. Importantly, it does what it is supposed to do - let you see what´s in front on you before you hit it!

Weaknesses:    The handlebar mount is not up to scratch - once you build up some speed (Usually downhill and on a tricky section)the unit has the habit of ´wobbling´forward and nose diving. Great if you want to see your front tire......not so good if you don´t want to ride into a bank in the dark....

Bottom Line:   
I am really happy with this product - it pretty much does what I want it to do which opens up more hours of riding for me.

Strengths:    Very bright and usable light, Extremely well made and very Durable (dropped the light at about 20mph while fooling with the handlebar mount, other than a few scratches there was no damage to the light.)

Weaknesses:    1. Handle bar mount, since the unit has no external battery it is relatively heavy and has a tendency to "Nose dive" this problem is magnified on a road bike where there is no suspension to soak up the hits.
2. No helmet mount available


Bottom Line:   
Great Light, makes the darkest, roughest single track cleanable! The light itself is incredible, but the mounting system is just not up to par with the light, for the price I expected a total system that worked without having to make constant adjustments.

Strengths:    Much brighter than HID. No cables. No connections to become unbuttoned. Compact. Simple. Can attach add'l battery. Can use as a very powerful flashlight. Beam is not to wide (flood) and not too narrow. I can see exceedingly further than riding partner's lights. The Trion has 600 lumens on high power.

Weaknesses:    I'm critical and typically write when disappointed with a product. When I discover a weakness I will update the review.

Bottom Line:   
Abuse it with confidence, I do.

Cygolite Trion 600

Anyone here in AZ using the Trion 600 from Cygo. There is some but not alot of review data out there I like the all in one design and guess that 600 lumens will be adequate when combined with a helmet light. Anyone seen or using this?Read More »
