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.
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.Read more ›
- Fairly bright front light.
- USB rechargable.
- 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.
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.

The light itself is great in terms of brightness and having it on the helmet is very helpful. There are some usability issues though. Read morePublished 16 days ago by Michael
