  9. Lights and Night Riding
    This is a commuter light from CatEye. It is tiny at 65 grams with mount, but as you can see in the measurements and beam photos, it's not bad at all. It's a 'to be seen' light and it's quite good in flash mode, but one can actually see with it. There's a tight spot that utilizes the 164 measured...
  10. Lights and Night Riding
    The CatEye Volt 1200 was one of our favorites last year with its 1253 lLumen output and $200 retail price. It trumped the competing Lezyne Mega Drive and Light & Motion Taz 1500, both at 1200 Lumens as well. But this year, the competition jumped up in output to 1400 and 1500 Lumens...
  11. Lights and Night Riding
    Now this CatEye Volt 700 is an incredible light. It shares the same body as last year's Volt 300 and it got a serious treatment from the tuner shop. They now claim 700 Lumens and we measured it at 773 Lumens of rock-steady output. Battery life on high is 2 hours with a powerful 3100 mAh...
  12. Lights and Night Riding
    Two years ago, CatEye wowed us with the 250 Lumen Nano Shot which featured a very small package for $100. Actual output was 200 in the integrating sphere. This year, the new light is the Volt 300 for only $60. The good news is the actual output is 349 Lumens in the sphere, so not only is it...
  13. Lights and Night Riding
    Two years ago, CatEye wowed us with the 250 Lumen Nano Shot as we marveled at its small form factor, light weight and useability. Then CatEye followed it up last year with the Nano Shot+. It got a whole lot bigger as it bumped it up to 600 Lumens. So it was with great anticipation that we...

  15. Lights and Night Riding
    A couple years ago, Cateye wowed us with their Nanoshot 250 lumen light. It was far from the brightest light we've used but it was one of the slickest, well-constructed small lights we've seen. We reviewed the system here https://reviews.mtbr.com/cateye-nano-shot-2012-mtbr-lights-shootout and we...
  16. Lights and Night Riding
    CatEye wowed us last year with the tiny Nano Shot light putting out 200 Lumens in a very handy package. This year, the Nano Shot+ measured in at more than twice that at 463 Lumens. More than doubling the output of the light only came with a 20% bump in price so this is a very competitive little...
  17. Misc Components
    Cateye surprised us last year in the Bike LIghts Shootout. They sent a tiny 250 lumen light called the Nano Shot and it blew us away with its form factor, quality, brightness and price. It kind of reminded us that Cateye is a Japanese company that makes quality stuff. The feel of their...

    The Cateye Econom Force is a commuter light from the manufacturing wizards from Japan. Don't expect too bright a light here but expect an affordable light that is constructed with high quality materials. We tested the standard AA version but there is also a rechargeable version of this light...
  20. Video, Photography, and POV Cameras
    We love this light. First look at it and it has the best form factor and feel of all the self-contained lights we've seen this year. It just feels like quality and it is so small and light at 80 grams. CatEye, based in Japan has come to reaffirm their commitment and leadership in the bike lights...
