Product Description

You know the drill -- before leaving your apartment ever morning, you dress, pack your tools and a spare change of clothes, don gloves and helmet, and duck out the front door, bike under arm. It's only until you're beyond the point of turning around when you realize you've forgotten your rear light. Or your front light. Or worse still, both. The intelligent Light & Motion Vis 360 Plus Light system makes it significantly more difficult to forget your lights, while offering a bit of extra power (hence the "Plus" delineation) over the standard Vis 360. Before the Vis systems, smart bike commuters have used separate headlights and taillights. While this is a satisfactory setup, it doesn't necessarily make you visible from the side. Accident data tells us that most accidents involving vehicles and bicycles occur at intersections, not surprisingly, with cars turning into or across cyclist's paths as they thread their way through the intersection. Light and Motion made the Vis 360 system a better, safer option by incorporating both front and rear light together, using the same battery pack so you'll always know that you'll have ample juice for both lights. But what really makes it special is the inclusion of amber side lights. These side markers create a 360 field of visible light. The system is designed to be mounted on the helmet, as accident data also shows that cyclists are more visible to cars when the headlight is mounted on the helmet. From our experience, this is also preferable for performance reasons -- your light will point directly where you look. Like the rest of the full Light & Motion line, the Vis 360 Plus Light is made in Monterey, California. The entire system mounts intuitively to any helmet with the lamp on front and taillight on back. It casts a bright, white 250 lumens beam of light which runs on the high setting for 3 hours. The medium setting will get you twice that, and it will pulse on the flash setting for a full 16 hours.

In my opinion, one or more good bike lights are one of the best investments you can make for biking in the dark, especially when it is already dark during rush hour, and completely unlit along off-street bike paths. Avoiding just one emergency room visit more than repays the cost of any number of lights.

I start with a good 2 watt LED headlight and a Planet Bike Blinky Superflash Turbo 1W Tail Light tail light on the bike itself. That helps me be seen, and lights up where the bike is going. However, that isn't always where I want to go next. For that, I added a Light & Motion Vis 360 Light helmet light, which includes both a 100 lumen front light and a bright rear light, plus amber lights on both sides. The result was much better than with lights only on the bike itself.

Then this fall I learned Lights & Motion has doubled the power of the Vis 360 in a new Vis 360+ model, and immediately added the Vis 360 to my wife's helmet, with this Vis 360+ being added to my own helmet. That's partly because we often ride together on a tandem trike, and the Vis 360+ has a new button allowing me to turn off its rear light to avoid blinding the stoker. The rest of the reason is that my usual commute home from the shop uses the Des Plaines River Trail, which is so dark at night that doubling the power of the headlight adds a lot of safety.

I've added customer images to show how the two helmets look together:

One other benefit of both is that they are rechargeable, via the same microUSB connector I use to charge my cell phone. That saves on batteries, AND it's one less thing to pack when traveling.

Both are still going strong, as we near the end of another Illinois winter.

For a headlight/taillight, the Vis 360+ is a great option. It's expensive, yes, but there really isn't anything else like it.

Pros:
- Fairly bright front light.
- USB rechargable.

Cons:
- The cable between the front and rear seems thin. Concerned about how it'll hold it up in very cold weather.
- The taillight is chunkier than I expected. Not surprising, since it has the battery for the front and rear lights.

The mounting system for the front light is a rubber strap. The rear light uses a velcro strap. They are both secure.

The front light swivels, so you can point it more down or more out, depending on your needs. The rear light pulses red (it doesn't blink).

I think the front light should be brighter, but 'bright enough' is an ever-moving target.

Overall, it's a good setup, and I would recommend it.

Though I did not buy this from Amazon, I wanted to comment on how great this light is. Besides the fact that it is super light and there is nothing else like it on the market, it is so high profile that it can be seen from a long ways off. The other day I was trucking down a hill on my commute to work and a car was about to pull out in front of me from a side street. The driver was behind a car parked on the side street and would not have seen me, even with the front handle bar light I had blinking. But because the light was up on my helmet, the drive saw me just before pulling out and slammed the brakes, avoiding a certain collision. Thank you VIS 360!

I have also used this light as a helmet light for Mtn. biking and it is awesome. The beam is strong and well defined, so it works great for viewing around corners and switch backs. Anyhow, I highly recommend this light for commuting and as a helmet or back up light for Mtn. biking.

I commute by bike and I'm obsessed with seeing and being seen at night. I have a 650 lumen TerraLUX TT-5 flashlight (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009WFA4KU/) strapped to my handlebars as my primary light. I added this helmet-mounted light set as redundancy / extra security. I've had it about a month now.

This is a pretty good light. It's fairly bright, and I like that it has amber LED's on both sides of both the front and rear light. This makes you visible from any angle (hence the "360" in the name). Having gotten used to the blinding, virtual daylight of the 650 lumen flashlight on my handlebars, the 250 lumens that this light puts out on max doesn't seem quite bright enough to me. But I could get home safely with this alone if my flashlight were to fail, so it's bright enough.

Things I like about helmet-mounted lights in general:
1) You can aim the light wherever you need it. It's handy for checking out turns before you've made the turn. And I can now see the display from my bike computer without having to wait for a streetlight! And when I'm off my bike, I can see my lock, into my trunk bag, etc.
2) They increase visibility and therefore safety.
3) You'll probably leave them mounted to your helmet most of the time, so you're less likely to forget them. And if you're locking your bike up somewhere you'll probably take your helmet with you, so you'll automatically take your lights too - less chance of theft.

Things I like about this light in particular:
1) It's one of the brighter ones available.
2) It actively aims LED's in every direction, making you highly visible.
3) It's rechargeable and charges via USB.
