I compared it with an older Cateye back light that I have, the TD LD 1000. Now that light really does have LEDs mounted on the left and the right, and it's really bright when viewed from the sides.
See the video clip that I uploaded. You can see the difference in the side views between the Rapid Five and the older TD LD 1000, and you can see that the older Cateye is much brighter when viewed from the side than the newer Rapid Five. And as viewed by the naked eye, the difference is even greater than the video clip shows it to be.
If you go to Cateye's very own website (just google "Cateye Rapid Five), they have a photo of the Rapid Five in the bottom right-hand side of the page showing how light disperses from this unit. As you'll see, it does a good job at 0 degrees (straight back), a reasonable job at 50 degrees (diagonally back to the left and right, but only very little at 90 degrees (directly left and right). I can't understand why they claim that the light has "two more side mounted high-power SMD-LEDs for maximum visibility from all directions.".
I'd recommend it!
I would definitely recommend the Rapid 5 to anyone looking for extra visibility while riding on the road.
ps: Because I was so happy with the quality, simplicity and ruggedness of this tail light, I decided to get the CatEye Nano Shot Plus as a replacement for a terrible choice I had previously made with a front-light purchase. I'm now confident I won't lose any illumination next time I go out on the trail in pitch-darkness!
I may look funny on the street, but much safer than before with other rearlights.
