This is fantastic bike light. The standout features are 1. excellent side / off axis visibility 2. small and light enough with O ring fixing to attach to bars, fork blades, stays. Mounted on the fork, it provides far more visibility to drivers entering from side roads or traffic alongside you. The various flashing modes grab attention whilst extending battery life and it is USB rechargeable - very convenient. It is also easy to remove and slip in a pocket when you leave your bike unattended. There is a black self adhesive mask to stick along the side of the casing if you are mounting it horizontally on the bars to prevent the light blinding you as you ride. I strongly recommend this and the Rapid X rear as a set of additional lights
