The Light & Motion Urban 500 light is the most practical light for daily commuters and weekend riders. Featuring 500 lumens of light that has been tested and certified to the FL-1 standard, the Urban 500 outshines any light in its class. Custom engineered reflector provides a smooth beam pattern without any distracting hard edges – one of the most critical yet often overlooked features of bicycle lights. High intensity amber sidelights add 180 degrees of visibility for commuting in high traffic areas and keep you safe through busy intersections. Durability is a hallmark of all Light & Motion products and the light is tested to withstand multiple 1-meter drops on concrete. The IP67 waterproof rating allows the light to be fully submerged up to 1 meter - water ingress is the major cause of bicycle light failure and Light & Motion has eliminated this with the innovative design. The Urban is also compatible with Light & Motion’s optional GoPro mount giving the most mounting options imaginable. Manufactured in Light & Motion’s California headquarters, the Urban 500 is backed by a two-year guarantee.

It is bright. Like it should be in advanced classes and graduated college at 16 type of bright O_o. Or maybe I am mistaking the types of bright. Regardless it casts a great amount of light in the direction it is pointed and that is a good thing. The replacement did not have a hole the size of Jake's Mom on the side. It has preformed great so far. other then the pain in the ass of having to return the first one I bought I have liked this light.
--- Initial Review ---
Light came today, and after getting the light out of that nightmarish plastic tube with some sort of indestructible staple holding everything together I was marveling at how awesome the light looks. Then on looking all around my new precious, I notice a big giant hole in the side of the light. The left yellow cover is missing and there is a nice big hole on the side exposing what appears to be the electronics on the inside. Booo. I do believe this giant electronics exposing hole to probably not allow the light to live up to its waterproof/resistant claims and since I live in Seattle this is a big concern. So off to start the return process because that is how I wanted to spend my day clearly.
Just shining the light inside it looks super bright on high. Other then the gigantic hole on the side the light looks and feels great. I will update my review when I get a unit that is complete and safe to use in the rain. If it is as bright as it looks inside, can keep the water out and battery life claims are close to being right I could see this being a 5 star light no problem. The one I received would only be safe to use in dry conditions at best and therefor starts out with 3 stars.

+Easily brightest light owned. I run this on high the majority of the time. It lasts exactly like claimed. About an hour and half.
+Easy to install with quick strap.
+Ability to angle light left and right.
+Great side visibility with the orange side markers.
+Pulse mode that won't cause drivers seizures.
+Rechargeable. Uses standard micro usb cable
+500 Lumen FL-1 Certified light. Means it is actually certified for 500 Lumen, rather than just claimed like other lights.
+Status indicator green, orange, and red on the back.
-Color options might not be for everyone.
-Pulse mode isn't that visibly different than full on mode. Less visible to other drivers than lights that have strobe mode. During the daytime I don't see how this is worth it.
Until L&M re-design the charge port cap I cannot recommend this light at all - a broken cap will expose the delicate USB cable pin connector to dust and moisture, leading to eventual total failure. L&M, please admit that your new cap design is a failure and stop selling the flawed light.
I have to say, build quality has gone down. The cover for the USB port *comes off* with the slightest of pulls and is made of plastic, not rubber. I can tell it's going to wear out over time and stop staying in place -- i.e. my expensive bike light will be exposed to water damage. This is a terrible design. The Urban 200's cover was made out of rubber and not removable.
Other notable changes over the Urban 200:
* The body is detachable from the base. This is nice.
* There is no longer a charging light at the back of the unit -- instead the charging light shines through the enable button. This is fine, but the button itself feels like weak plastic compared to the previous solid rubber button. We'll see if it holds up over time.
