About Planet Bike
Planet Bike was founded in Madison, Wisconsin, in November of 1996. In many ways, Planet Bike began as a social experiment first and foremost, with a dedication to doing business in a different way. Instead of being just another company that develops and sells products with profit as its end goal, Planet Bike wanted to help bring about positive change for people, their communities, and the environment.

The people at Planet Bike have always believed that the bicycle has great potential to help improve the world and the lives of the people in it. From the start, they have embraced an alternative corporate purpose that seeks to help get more people on bicycles by making communities friendlier places for the self-propelled. By donating 25 percent of company's profits to causes that promote and facilitate bicycle usage, Planet Bike hopes to make an impact.

Social experiments aside, Planet Bike was born from the heart of a cyclist with a goal of making innovative, high quality, and practical bicycle accessories. Simply put, the company strives to design and develop the best bicycle products in the world. In the company's short 10-year history, it has made a number of important product innovations within the bicycle industry. Advancements include the four-line computer, which is now a standard in the industry, and the world's first self-contained HID light. Not bad for a company that started as a one-man operation more than a decade ago. While still a small company, Planet Bike continues to evolve and improve its product line with the goal of always striving to build accessories that make it easier for people to ride their bikes. Since 1996, Planet Bike's financial support of the grassroots bicycle movement has totaled $500,000. By 2010, Planet Bike has made a goal to donate $1 million to organizations that are dedicated to making America a friendlier place for cyclists.

These lights are very bright!
Xenia
It's still a very good light to make you visible, but not quite enough to be used as your only source of light when it's completely dark out.
Peter Saunders
Light set was needed for teen riding at night thru very dark neighborhood.

I bought this combo because I really needed a tail light and the extra headlight would be a bonus. Well, here's the story. The Superflash tail light is simply incredible. Whether in blink or steady mode, this thing is BRIGHT, even in daytime with direct sunlight. I have two of these Superflash tail lights and motorists can't miss me - in flashing mode you look like an emergency vehicle! The Superflash has survived falling off my bike while riding with only minor scuffs (I failed to clip it in completely - you need to be careful about that). The Blaze headlight is, on the other hand, disappointing. It has a very narrow, focused beam of only moderate brightness. In flashing mode, the beam is way too narrow as a "be seen" light, unless the observer is dead center in front of the beam. I use the Blaze as a spot light supplement to a wider angle headlight, but I would not recommend it as a sole headlight.

I needed a new rear blinkie and was just going to get the red super flasher, but I saw the combo and figured why not.

The rear blinkie is awesome. I thought it would be margnial given its size, but it's more than sufficiently bright. What I don't like is that I have yet to find a blinkie that I can mount to the bracket on my rear rack. Blinkies only seem to come with seat post mounts and/or clips for going bags. So I came up with a different bracket addition of my own and took the screw and removable thread out of the seat post rack and mounted the light horizantal on my new bracket. Works like a charm although not the most asthetic. Having said that, I found out tonight that Planet Bike makes a bracket for rear racks. So I'll probably get one. whew...

The front "Blaze" is a better led flasher than anything the dept stores have as far as flashers go. (I've got one mounted as well so I could compare.) If you need to light the path/road, get something else. Even a $30 high lumen mag type light or a couple of them would suffice if you can get them mounted with a rubber strap or one of those mag light bike mounts. But as a front flasher it does well. I think it's even sufficiently bright enough for daytime use.

The "Blaze" uses a cam lock type mount. Clever design. Actually, a very clever and smart design. However, I'm not confident enough in the materials to go as tight as I need. The little lever arm feels like it's going to snap. So it's important to get some shims in there to help keep the mount from sliding around necesiating the need to really get the quick release arm too tight.

For the price, it's a good safety combo as long as the buyer is aware that the front light is a just a flasher and not a head/flood type light for lighting the way.

I already have these lights but am fed up of swapping over the units from one bike to another. Also I ride at 4.30am, so when u wake up to find your first choice bike has a flat, swapping over the lights at 4.30am is a pain, frustrating and eats into your ride time. So I decided to invest in a second set of lights. I bought the same set again because they work excellently. There are several stretches of road I use that are unlit and often I will come across a stretch where the lights have gone out for some reason. These lights keep me visible and they illuminate the road so I can see pot holes or debris etc. Definitely consider these lights for your bike!!

This set of blinky lights is a great option to get set up for night riding. I purchased the set because I had seen the Superflash Tail Light in action and was very impressed. In my opinion, it is one of the best bike tail lights available. The tail light alone would warrant a 5 star rating.

The headlight, I was not quite as impressed with. It's a quality light, but I found it was no brighter than the existing LED headlight I have owned for approximately 5 years. I was hoping that the improvements in LED technology would make this a brighter light. It's still a very good light to make you visible, but not quite enough to be used as your only source of light when it's completely dark out. Also, I did not have any issues with the attachment as other commenters have mentioned. Once you understand how the mechanism works, it is easy to adjust and superior to most attachment systems with the multitude of rubber spacers.

Conclusion: If Planet Bike packaged their 1 watt headlight with the Superflash tail light, that would be an ideal combination. As is, this set is a very good value.

My wife and I typically ride after work and that means in the dark during the winter months.

As we ride in SoCal in a residential area, we need to be seen by cars and that is the major objective of using the lights.

In the pulse mode, you stick out like a sore thumb. If they can't see you then they are either blind drunk or shouldn't be driving.

Despite the fact the lights are not sold as providing adaquate illumination for you to ride by, I find they throw enough light to get about 2 second view of things in your path. You may not know what it is but you did see enough to get around the object.

It was a snap to install them.
