Cheap Knog Frog copies...but ok.
on 14 May 2013
I bought these for my sons bike. I use a very similar looking product on my own bike called 'Knog Frogs' which are excellent, but much more expensive.
These are a lot cheaper but the design isn't quite as good....which i'll get to.
I like the double LEDs on these (Knogs only have one) which give off a perfectly decent brightness - not enough to see by, but good enough to be SEEN, which is what these are for. I like the various flashing patterns too. The batteries are well sealed up and seem waterproof. The silicone material seems pretty decent quality too, although the strap seems a little bit thin when stretched around something wide like a seat post. Time will tell.
My problem with them though (hence minus one star) is the little clear hook for the strap - it's not bendy. On my Knog frogs the strap and hook parts are both bendy and therefore bend beautifully around whatever you attach them too. On these the solid hook means that they don't quite hold on as tight in some places as i'd like them too. Perhaps not a huge deal, but the design just isn't quite as nice.
But for the price I paid (under a fiver) they seem great value and i'd buy again.
