" As expected, but rubber cap stopper is very stiff and needs a real yank with teeth to open fully. Black print on the outside of the bottle has already worn away a fair bit where the bottle has been in contact with the cage, and this is after only one 40 mile ride. "
Pros: Comfortable, Lightweight, Good Fit
Cons: Wears Out Easily, very stiff cap stopper

The perfect compliment to a Fizik or Selle Royal saddles featuring the new ICS integral clip in system. The bag features reflective detailing and an LED light loop for added safety.

" If you have a compatible Fizik saddle this bag does the job brilliantly. The fact that you can attach/unattach it instantly is really useful. The zip can be opened easily even with full winter gloves on. It's discreet to look at and compact but can easily fit 2 tubes, a tool, a wallet & keys. "
Pros: Attractive, Lightweight, Good Fit, detachable

This fantastic little light may just be the best addition to your night riding you can make as it a single high powered LED that pushes out 240 lumens on max power!

Good night light, but swivel mechanism dodgy.

" Have just used this on two night stages on a London-Paris 24hr ride.
Projects enough light on second highest setting to feel safe when riding though unlit country roads: was able to confidently go downhill at 30-35mph on unfamiliar roads and see potential hazards in time. The light beam is broad enough to show a good spread of what's ahead. Other participants in the event commented on how good the light beam was. New set of batteries lasted through 2 hrs of cycling but don't know how long they'd last in total as swapped them out for another new set before second night stage.
Only gripe- and a fairly major one from a safety point of view- is that adjusting horizontal position of the light itself left/right a few times causes the fixing allen bolt to come loose which necessitated stopping twice to re-tighten it as the light unit started freely swivelling left'/ight and was in danger of coming off the bar mount completely. Some other type of secure swivel mechanism that doesn't suffer from this is definitely needed.
The bar mounting unit itself is very easy to put on/take off and remained securely fastened throughout.
If it wasn't for the bolt loosening issue then performance would have been 4 stars.

Does this come with a QR bracket or not?

One of the reviews says no bracket - the bike mag review says it's excellent!
Mine came with QR bracket.

Does this light flash or is it static, what is the burn time on flash if so?

4 solid beam settings.
1 low level flash setting.

Don't know about burn time.
