Strengths:    Super bright! High quality materials. Easy mount system. Quick ability to change the modes on the fly.

Weaknesses:    After a few swaps of the battery the back of the light gets loose. I actually had it fly off on the trail one day. Luckily I know the trail very well and was able to recover it.

Bottom Line:   
I have been very happy with this light. When it started getting loose I was disappointed but Princeton tec stepped up and replaced it no questions. Great service. I will buy more of their items.

Strengths:    Super bright
Very good switch


Weaknesses:    The case - after changing the batteries for the first time it become too easy to open. This way, it's very easy to loose the light.
Mounting system - I snaped the smaller rubber ring on first attempt to mount the light. I used the bigger one, witch made the light hard to keep in horizontal position. I now broke the bigger ring. This makes me think that the whole mounting system is crap.


Bottom Line:   
Quality of the light and switch is superb, but the case and mounting system is not so good.

Strengths:    Super bright, no way they won't see you with this thing behind you, positive action switch, long burn time.

Weaknesses:    None.

Bottom Line:   
No weaknesses here. Includes batteries, super bright, and mounts in about 5 seconds. My favorite thing about the Swerve is the switch. Just about every light on the market uses a switch underneath a rubber gasket or cover. This is especially annoying for taillights and even worse if you're wearing gloves. You have to physically look to make sure the light has turned on thus causing you to take your eyes WAY off the road as you look down under your seat. The swerve eliminates this problem. The switch is a big, white, easy to locate lever that has a positive CLICK that you can feel. You know the light is on when you turn it on. The whole point of a tail light is safety, so ALL aspects of the light should be safe. Get this light and I promise you'll never look back again. (See what I did there?)

OT: To swerve and protect

A little off topic (there are bikes sort of) but, there's been far worse threads as of lately. Maybe some like controlled chaos, maybe some don't. Well I do. So to start your Friday the 13th off right here's some shenanigans for you adrenaline junkies out there. Read More »
