5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality safety light for visibility in low light conditions.
Good quality and nicely designed light with various flashing modes. It's main purpose is for visibility, and this is something it does quite well. It is useful for foggy or low light conditions, and areas that are lit up at night. It will not light up the way in front of you while cycling, but that's not what it's for. Also doubles as a handy torch - and this is one of...

3.0 out of 5 stars An ok light
It's slightly annoying that it is fuelled by expensive lithium 3V batteries rather than rechargeable batteries. It also goes off in my bag and runs the battery down. Would be good to have a safety switch on it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good backup light,
Any serious year-round commuter needs a safety light in case their main beam fails. This is a reassuring and bright backup which ensures you are easily seen by traffic. I would not use it as a solo light for illuminating unlit road. Clearly that isn't its purpose anyway.
I strapped two on my front handlebars, as they were so cheap. They come off easily too and pop in your pocket, so they won't get pinched. The battery life is very good and they are immensely weatherproof. I'm not sure what more you need.
5.0 out of 5 stars knog beetle led front light,
bought 2 of these bad boys to go on the handlebars.the reviews were spot on.these little lights are very bright and noticable when its dark.have recommended them to friends..
5.0 out of 5 stars Very light and very bright.,
I bought this mini light to replace my larger Knogg light. My old Knogg light has three led bulbs and requires two AAA batteries. I didn't realised it was so heavy until I got this mini version.
I'm glad I bought this. It's very bright despite the size.
4.0 out of 5 stars Pefectly happy,
I have to say that I was surprised at just how tiny this light is when it arrived through the post. However, performance-wise it makes a perfect back-up light: The beam isn't really strong enough to light your way, although it is sufficiently bright to ensure that other road users can see you coming. The strap fits snugly around the handlebars without any need for screwing, tightening, or messing about with fiddly nuts and bolts, and all-in-all it does exactly what you'd expect of a light like this.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great little light,
This light is exactly what I wanted, it's really light and easy to attach to the handle bar without having to attach a bracket. Looks really cute and has 4 different settings. Very bright light, feels safe.
Will buy the back light next!
5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant light!,
Had this light for 3 weeks now, so far it has been amazing. Really easy to attach/detach and easy to use. Supposedly 160hrs on flicker mode, yet to be confirmed, but still very bright. Very cheap, great little light, well recommended.
5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and functional! What more could you want?,
These have got to be some of the coolest bike lights around. I have a pair of these on the front of my red Brompton and they take on the appearance of eyes when viewed from directly in front!
Seriously though, they provide a good, bright light that should ensure you're seen by any other traffic and stray pedestrians. While they are clearly designed for being seen, not seeing by, two of them do do a reasonable job of lighting up the occasional unlit London street I find myself cycling down. The array of flashing modes is also good, and allows you to pick something to suit your taste (quick, slow, alternating etc)! The only frustration is the usual one of a multifunction light - that you have to cycle through all the different modes to turn it on or off depending where your preferred sequence is located!
They attach to handlebars very easily, and one of mine goes round a few cables to keep them out the way too - so there's plenty of scope for a wide bar.
All in all, cannot recommend these enough, you won't be disappointed.
5.0 out of 5 stars simple and efficient,
It's small, practical and just works.
Perfect if you don't have much space on your handlebars and the battery lasts ages.
5.0 out of 5 stars love it !,
brought one of these for front and diff knog for rear as wanted lights that didnt require fuxed fittings to my bike and these work a treat,yes you get a little light in your face due to open design but if it was any different there wouldnt be half as much light coming out for drivers to see. great product,has lasted me months with no probs.
5.0 out of 5 stars Knog Beetle Light,
Arrived well packaged and quickly delivered with excellent comms from the seller. Excellent, smart looking, easy to fit little light with a strong beam. Batteries last a long time and are cheap to replace. Easy to fit to bike and all in all an excellent purchase.
