great piece of kit. flexy, bright and fits on bike or rucksack. i saw other reviews who where worried the rubber fixing would degrade when constantly taking off and re fitting to bike. i have a road bike and a mountain bike so i just attached the light to the back of my helmet so i don't have to keep changing it over. i use it in flash/strobe mode. a mate of mine commented on how he could see me from a long way off as he passed me in his car. too early yet to comment on battery life. will update in a month or two when i have put it through some winter weather. if this one lasts well i my buy another so i light up like a Christmas tree, cant be too lit up in my opinion.

Excellent ...I've been using mine for nearly 2 years...in fact I can't remember if I bought the originals from amazon or not...but just on ordering a spare so thought I'd review...very happy with these..I've also come up behind someone using one while in the car and been impressed, the best visibility I've seen in a rear light and importantly they offer all round visibility...great when crossing junctions when you're potentially most vulnerable.
One word of caution...if you use them in the wet some damp can work its way inside the rubbers at the ends, not a problem if you pull the rubber back and leave somewhere to air a bit after use. Not had one fail while out...but I live in a country area with very few street lights..so like to have two on the bike just in case.
For anyone interested on the front I use a 'Fusion Speed Led' (Mine is the previous version but very similar) from Full-Beam, Scottish company ....expensive but an incredible front light...I'd been through a few standard front lights and they weren't giving out enough light for riding at speed on dark (and of course pott holed) roads and lanes..the fusion is comparable to a motorcycle headlight, and the second level (5 hours burn time) is always good enough, as I said..a bit painful paying for it initially, but been using it two years and would buy again..changes night riding completely.

As a cycle commuter, I have my bike lit up like the proverbial christmas tree. This light has been a useful addition mounted on my helmet for a high-level rear light.
There is something rather odd going on with the description though - a big selling point seems to be the flexibility, yet the light ships with a sticker on it saying "do not bend". Hmm... So I ignored the sticker and bent mine into almost a "u" shape when I fitted it, and it still works fine. Don't expect to be able to twist it around as you fancy though, I'd guess a "u" shape would be about as extreme as it'll go (plus there's a wire along the length of the light which pops out of its housing unless you bend in the right direction (and I'm guessing may even snap if you attempted to put it on the outside of a bend)).
The switch is a bit fiddly, and lacks a positive feel, so if you're switching it on or off by touch it's near-impossible to tell whether you've managed to do so without a visual check.
Not sure I'd rely on it as my only back light, it's nowhere as bright as a 1W LED, or even the regular cateye lights. The wider angle of visibility that a bit of cunning placement gives is its top feature, and it's that wide angle which gets it 4 stars.

These have been around for a while, indeed I wonder if they're even still being made. Hopefully so because they're good.

It has a solid, quality feel so far, and is easy to attach to the bike. Mine is on the seat post behind the saddle. My colleague prefers not to use these on their own, and she may be right. Either way, in the dark the Fibre Flare is very very visible as a secondary safety light.

As the marketing for the product indicates, it is visible from the sides as well as the back, which I suppose is a plus. The attraction for me though is that it is so distinctive. Obviously there is no way of knowing for sure, but one almost gets the feeling that drivers do a bit of a double take - thus their mind is focused on you, and then hopefully on avoiding you. Certainly in the short time I've had this I've been getting wide passes.

With this flashing away on your seat post, there can be none of this 'he should have proper lights, I'm going to pass close to him to teach him a lesson' business, which I suspect is how some drivers think. Paranoid? Maybe, but whatever the thought process, there can be little doubt about visibility with a red pole of light flashing away for all to see.

Only had it for a few weeks so will update if any changes.

Regarding others comments on lastability, useability, waterproofing etc etc...

I have bought many of these from a variety of places and have, over the space of some time, used these in heavy rain, caked them in mud and treated them quite roughly. Lost a few which turned up nearly a year later and still worked with the batteries they'd been hiding with. They've been on road bikes, mountain bikes and backpacks, been flicked off my packs when caught on doors, trodden on etc etc etc.

Only two have let me down for different reasons; one had the plastic clips snapped off the back by a family member who didn't have the same consideration for my prize possessions in the garage. Don't even know how as I've never managed to break one this way?! The second was where the fibre optic came away from one of the end pieces after being caught on something and now repeatedly falls out... Remedied with some glue!

I have various different ones; long, short, front, back, battery, USB. None have let me down at all. I particularly like four long ones on my rucksack, hanging down and flashing so cars give me a wide berth (very easy to fit on military (Molle) back packs).

The reason I have such a variety is that I was stumped trying to figure out where to put lights on my bikepacking set up when there were bags strapped everywhere! These lights can go anywhere!
