BlackburnClick USB Front Light

Charge up and go.

The Blackburn Click USB Front Light packs big visibility into a tiny package that won't get in the way of your commuter's clean lines. Its universal action camera-style mount is compatible with most helmets and fits handlebars ranging from 22 to 35mm in diameter. It's also a snap to install, and can be quickly removed for safe storage in your pack or charging via micro USB. As an added touch, an LED charge indicator clearly displays battery levels so you won't get caught out with a low battery for the trip home.

Safety first: be seen

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is not the only flashing front light I have, but it works fine and costs less than the others, none of which I use in the pitch dark. The supplied attaching rubber band is a bit too small for my bars wrapped with gel cork tape, but I overcame that with the biggest O-ring I could get at the hardware store. Failing that, I was planning on using cable ties which would have worked, but the big O-ring solves the problem.

Super Bright

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

These are really bright for how small and cheap they are, and being USB rechargeable is great. Only drawback is that they way they're designed they are hard to mount so that they're pointing straight forward, instead they just point whatever direction your bar points (so just off to the side a little if you have bars with some sweep). Assuming you're just using these for visibility though, they are great.
