4.0 out of 5 stars Good budget light for night riding, 28 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Smart Lunar 35 Lux Front Light (Includes 2 x AA Batteries) (Sports)
I recently completed a 100-mile night ride across the countryside in almost pitch black conditions, with this as my main light, and it was up to the task.

The high-power beam is bright enough to light a path through the dark night provided you are happy to travel at an easy 12-15mph. If you wanted to race along faster than that, there are higher power lights which are more suitable. I took it easy on the downhills just to be safe. The light's other modes are a half-power beam and a flashing beam. They serve their purpose, for conserving battery, but it's annoying when you have to cycle through all the modes, including off, when you want to switch to high power again.

Battery-wise, the light didn't seem to drain its two standard AAs too fast. Not fast enough to make me worry or have to change them on my 8-hour ride, at least. Get a set of four rechargeables and a charger and you're golden.

Build-wise, the light seems compact, tough, and adequately rain-proof, though I haven't tested it thoroughly. It's nice that it's small enough to slip into a pocket when you quick-release it from the mounting bracket (which has been improved since previous models and now attaches quickly and securely to standard handlebars).

Yes, I like the form factor of this light and I like its power. The mode cycler is a minor niggle which I can live with, so I'd buy the light again to get this much brightness at this price point. One other point: if you need a light exclusively for within the city, this one is probably overkill and you could get by with one of its smaller brothers.
