Strengths:    Long battery life, light weight, muliple brightness modes, it came with batteries!

Weaknesses:    No quick release handle bar mount, cord is hard wired to light/batt pack

Bottom Line:   
I bought one of these lights for the helmut and after last nights ride home I was pretty impressed. I like being able to choose how many LEDS to light up between all 8, 4, 3 or 1 and the blinking mode is also nice. Half my ride home goes through the deep woods and with all 8 on it lit up the trail well. I just ordered another one to mount on the handle bar. The weaknesses to me are not that big of a deal but it would be nice to be able to unplug the cord.

Date Reviewed: October 12, 2008

Strengths:    Price,Nice and bright for its size.LED-long lasting burn time.Battery pack seems to be just right and not to bulky.Very wide beam of light on full power.

Weaknesses:    The mounting bracket does not fit on oversized handlebars like 31.8.All you have to do is use a zip tie instead of the bolt and nut that comes with it. Other than that it is a hell of bargain.

Bottom Line:   
Raced with a team at the 24 hours of Afton alps in Minnesota and I had it on the handlebar with a Princeton tec EOS on my helmet. Great combination of lights.While the Corona worked great it needed another light like the EOS to help it out. Great light for the money,puts out a good wide beam that will last all race on one set of batteries,Awesome.

Saw: Corona vs Chainmate

Happened to be on a ride today where a guy had the Corona saw on him and we got to cut a tree down that fell on the trail. Felt good about doing some proactive maintenance so figured I'd start carrying a saw. Looked stuff up and seems the Corona saw from Lowes has great reviews ([url=http://www.lowe ... Read More »
