The all new Rapid Mini is the smallest, most powerful yet affordable rear RC light Cateye have ever produced. Pushing out up to 15 lumen the Rapid R has a triple LED configuration, like the Rapid 3 but with the advantage of USB Recharge.

“All in all then, the Rapid Mini is a great option for a cheap and effective rear light, suitable for commuting on unlit roads. But what’s been most impressive is how it has stood up to some properly nasty winter conditions and some manhandling on the part of the tester. Too lazy to remove it before cleaning my bike, it has taken direct hits from the hose pipe and lived to tell the tale.” -

General information about our shipping
Surprisingly bright light from a small package. Really convenient to be able to charge the light from USB. I wanted something I could plug into my laptop at work all day and know it would be fully charged for the journey home. Light output is more than enough - you can see the red pool it puts out behind you on country lanes. Of the various modes I favour the random flashing/twinkling - it's very attention grabbing. The flashing mode I imagine will be very penetrating in foggier conditions, though I haven't tested it out yet. A great light for commuting or riding on unlit lanes.
