Color Name: BlackSize Name: Rear Verified Purchase
I'm glad I'm not prone to seizures, because when set to the all-in go-crazy mode, this thing will attract the attention of even the most distracted driver. The center light is bigger, but it's hard to tell how much brighter it is than the 2 other "normal" LED's (it's all blinding to me, in the dark). Gives me piece of mind when riding now, even in the daytime. I have noticed cars give me a wider berth now, and even a few more slow down and actually wait for it to be safe before trying to pass.

A few minor gripes though..first is the overall bulk of the unit plus bracket. The bracket attachment is awesome, fits a variety of tube sizes, even the "stealth fighter" tube shaped seatstay (not a round cross section) of my carbon bike. You can mount the light horizontally or vertically, and the angle is adjustable, but fixed once you tighten down the bracket. But the bracket, plus the "depth" of this unit makes it somewhat unattractive to leave on the bike. I'm not trying to be a bike snob, but it is definitely not a good match to my sleek-looking bike. But safety first, boys and girls! Secondly, the full-on spaz mode of the light is kind of too much at times, but the only other modes are the 2 smaller LED's blinking or steady. It's kind of like one mode is all "HEEEEYY LOOOK AT MEEEEE!!!!! DDDOOOOON'T RUN ME OVERRRRRR AAAAAAAAHHHHHH!" or it's "hey there cars, can you see me? Maybe? Ok, well here's a less visible reminder of a bike on the road". Some of Cateye's lesser models (I have the Omni 3) have a good balance of safety without an all-out visual explosion of light and color. So, I generally run the 2-LED blinky unless it's getting dark, or a very overcast day, when I'll use the most eye-catching mode.

Overall, it's a great product for a decent price, I'd recommend it.

It does all it's supposed to do:
- 3 modes of visible light,
- easily adjusts on the tube of a seat-post & may be set to vertical\horizontal orientation
- has a long 1 AA battery life,
- durable & rain-resistant

I'm absolutely content with it.

The front Rapid 3 white LED flashers are bright and can be seen clearly for a LONG ways away! The beam is focused, so it is usable on the front at night (with another headlight), and can also double as a spare back-up headlight. I would not recommend using this as a primary headlight, although it does have that option if you need it.

Great little light. My light options were somewhat limited because I wanted to mount on an aero seatpost. I chose this light for that reason and fits my Giant Defy Advanced great. The light is bright and on the flash pattern is attention grabbing. I would definitely recommend.

What I particularly like about this unit is the design of the device used to attach it to your bars (or whatever else you might want to affix it to, such as a front bag). The strap, which employs a screw-type tightening system, will fit ANY size bar -- unlike some other lighting devices.
Also nice is that it needs only one AA battery. I use rechargeables; Eneloops last a long time in the unit.

I bought three of these Cateye lights along with the Cateye brackets for the Fizik brand of seats. The lights work great ... they aren't kidding when they say they will get anyone's attention in the rapid flash mode. They match up nicely with the Fizik brand seat mount and the light becomes literally part of the seat. When I say part of the seat I mean it. So much so that I am going to buy two more lights to install on our other two bikes as they really clip in and hold tight ... Definitely not a bad thing.

A very bright light with lots of battery life. Wish it had a little more throw, and it's a expensive, hence the 4 star review. I'd buy again though.

this light works great, a little odd to turn on and off, it is one touch but you have to develop the "touch" as it is sensitive to how long you touch it. be sure to get the accessory rear rack bracket it is what really makes it work. I attached it to my back bag and it really shows up well

One caution, when you change batteries make sure you pop on the lense correctly, Mine fell of when I first changed the battery but it did it in my driveway. I now wrap a rubber band around it as extra insurance. Great light though
