Strengths:    Small, cheap, slides easily on to mount and clicks in securely. You can stick it in your pocket when you're off the bike.

Weaknesses:    Dim. Quite dim. Did I mention dim?

Bottom Line:   
I wish I'd checked the reviews before I bought this. As others mention the front looks like a white light from the pic but the LEDs emit an amber light, and aren't very bright. I just have mine as a back up at work in case I forget to bring my CygoLite, so it's not a big deal. And I've never seen an LED for cheaper.

It should be bright enough for drivers to see you and to keep cops from ticketing you for riding with no light, but that's about it. If you ride in the country and need to light up your path forget it. Don't even think about trail riding with this. It would be better than nothing, but not by much.


I used to have a Planet Bike light that looked just like this one but it was much brighter, I was hoping I was getting the same light cheaply with the Sette label. Guess you get what you pay for.

4 Value Chilis for being the cheapest LED I can find, 2 Overall because no one should use this thing as their primary headlight.

Date Reviewed: December 29, 2007

Strengths:    Small, multiple settings, inexpensive, durable, easily removable

Weaknesses:    Front light is yellow not white

Bottom Line:   
The back light will do the trick, but the front light is horrible. I probably look like a moving construction baracade when its flashing, and I'm probably not seen when it is steady. As for using it to see what's in front of you...not happening. My reccomendation is buy the rear, steer clear of the front. On the upside I always leave the back attached to the bike even when I go on rougher trails and its still holding on. I gave it a fair rating for overall, becuase the back light is decent. DO NOT BUY THE FRONT LIGHT.

Strengths:    They are nice and small, thats about it.

Weaknesses:    This light set is a huge waiste of cash, dont buy them. They fu@king suck big balls. The picture shows what would appear to be white light, but in reality they are yellow. For LED lights they are not very bright and the light can be barley seen past a few hours. Spend the extra money and buy a more expnsive set.

Bottom Line:   
DONT BUY!

These ligts work great, mount securely, and are only $5. Battery lasts a long time on flashing mode. I give them as gifts to friends that foolishly ride without lights.
