Really decent safety light!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Knog Gekko 3 Led Front Light (Sports)
I've had one of these for over 2 years now and let me just say what an innovative design it is too. I was using a Cateye model previously and being very wary of bike thieves I got fed up with attaching and reattaching the screw into the light housing everytime I parked my bicycle.
With this light however removal and attachment only takes 2 seconds! The stretchy material easily accommodates most handlebars and is really sturdy and rigid when attached. No road bumps are going to knock it out of position. Replacement of batteries is a little finnicky but simple when done once before.
There is also decent variation with light settings: Constant>Fast Strobe>Slow Strobe>Off. The light generated by 2 AAA rechargable batteries (supplied with light) is nothing short of astonishing! Of top of my head I think it has a 100M range give or take a couple. Also the battery life is extremely long. These new L.E.D's are very efficient.
My only negative is that it struggles with full illumination of the road ahead at night. Then again if you are a serious night rider then you would own a dedicated fully rechargable power light which use the bottle cage as a battery compartment but as a safety light I can recommend no other!
