    Strengths:    Bright

    Weaknesses:    Very poor electrics, breaks down, straps break

    Bottom Line:   
    Very unreliable. Bought one, it worked for a couple of months and then stopped charging. Knog sent me another charger, then one of the LEDs stopped working. Then one of the straps snapped. Worst of all, there's no battery charge warning light, and when you're doing 25mph on a country lane and the light switches off without warning, it can be a serious health hazard. And now the on/off switches are misbehaving.

    I really look after my gear well, and this hasn't had much use at all. I'm extremely disappointed and will never buy from this outfit again.

    Strengths:    A lot brighter than the previous $20 dollar set up's that I've had - allows for a faster pace on the paved trails

    Weaknesses:    Don't know yet

    Bottom Line:   
    Bottom Line - a really impressive light at a decent price. Just make sure you're not paying "full" price for this item.

    Strengths:    long run time, easy to set up 1..2..3..ready to ride. looks great. light is consitent from start of ride till the end.

    Weaknesses:    not the brightest of lights. would love a helmet mount.

    Bottom Line:   
    Was jealous of my riding partners niterider light and how bight is was at the start of our ride but fell in love with my knog when his battery died 35min into the ride. light was enough for both of us to make it out. Bottom line is this is my first night light and so far so good.
    Not the brightest but not the most expensive. Good for entry into the night life. Dont plan on cranking out any black dimond trails with this light. Its great at mid-ring cruising pace.
