'There are several things about this light that make it very good. It's small, it has a good mounting (a band capable of fitting nearly anywhere you like), it runs for ages on two AA batteries, it's weatherproof, and it costs under £20. For being seen, this is a great little unit, but it's not that great for seeing where you're going. Then again, it's clearly not intended for that kind of use. The mode when turned on is flashing, making it legal, and the second mode is constant. By far the best aspect of this light is how visible it is from the sides. The LEDs are quite far forward in the reflector, making it more noticeable because it's more than bright enough to attract attention. Of all the lights on test this is by far the best as regards visibility from obtuse angles.'
Verdict: 9/10 For being seen, this is a wonderful light and the price is fantastic.' Cycling Plus November 2006.

|This is a great little light, relatively inexpensive and practical for all but the most moonless of nights. Two AA batteries last a good long while and provide plenty of light to cycle by. I like to have two on the bars, one flashing one constant looking light pretty awesome headlights. There are two downsides in the design: 1. The attachment clip release is right tight under the body making it near impossible to release with gloves on. 2. The button is instant on and 3 second off meaning it's quite possible to accidentally have the light switch on in your bag and drain the batteries. This was my favourite Cateye front light right until I tried the newer UNO which is only one AA, impressively bright and solves both of my design gripes.|
