Strength:

Large bright lights make you feel safe, rubber seals make the lights waterproof.

Compared to some other lights these are big. The front light takes 4AA batteries and has 4 leds. The back light has 5 leds and takes 2AA batteries. The front handlebar mount can be put on without tools. Then you slide the light on to the mount until it is secure. Sometimes it takes a bit of coaxing to get it off. The back lite has a clip and bracket for your frame. I was able to modify it a bit to get it to work on the back of a rack. The back lite simply clips in to the holder. It looks like it could easily clip into your back pocket or onto a backpack as well. Both lights have on or blinking choices by pressing the on button a few times. Blinking is attention grabbing and also may save a bit of battery life over constant on. The plastic is hard and durable and has held up but i don't expect it to last forever. Very bright lights.

Strength:

Good on batteries, tail light is blinding, headlights are pretty nice for LEDs and the price

Weakness:

Only thing I could say would be bad is that you can see the brightness of the LEDs at the front lamp. I guess the light scatters upward a bit more than I want. Some silver paint fixes this problem and makes this light perfect.

I love this light combo. I already own two sets, one might go on my g/f's bike or I might just put an extra on mine. The batteries will last a long time.

The tail light is extremely bright and you can clip it on your shorts or shirt. Very handy!

It's definitely an effective and inexpensive light setup that everyone doing regular night commuting should try. I wouldn't use it out on narrow mountain trails in the dead of night but it works well for riding around neighborhoods and wider less winding trails. Couple this w/ an LED headlamp to make it even more useful.

Similar Products Used:

random cateye and target Bell brand. I couple this w/ an energizer 5 LED headlamp on my helmet.
