Make yourself seen.
Expanding into the realm of bike lights for the first time, Fabric carried its affinity for simple, functional pieces beyond saddles, creating a concise line of headlights that double as tail lights when needed, like the 150-lumen USB Stick Light. Focusing on keeping cyclists seen more than illuminating dark roads, the light features flashing and steady modes as a headlight, and four small LED bulbs when switched to a tail light.
If you routinely find yourself racing sunset during fall’s shorter days, the USB Stick Light gives you a lightweight, simple way to stand out on shady roads. The light’s aluminum body will withstand everyday wear-and-tear with ease, and its IPX-5 certification means you don’t have to worry about taking it off your handlebars when you ride through a rain shower. When you’re getting low on battery, the USB Stick Light lets you skip the step of frantically searching for your charging cable before a ride. Instead, it plugs directly into any USB port to give you a quick reboot before you go.

- Q & A
Wanted to love it
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Really liked the design and form factor of this, loved that it could be used as either a tail light, head light or front "be seen" light. That said, the mounting style as a front "be seen" is clunky if you've got anything else in your cockpit - couldn't get it to not be in the way of my Garmin out-front mount. Brightness isn't up to par with some of my other lights but is enough for city riding. Don't love how the USB plug cover is also the mount, it's never felt secure and makes removing the light from a seatpost kind of a headache. Also, the rubber strap design isn't robust at all - I've probably moved it between bikes five or six times and now the strap has torn, without easy supply of a replacement strap it's now trash. Pretty disappointing.
