" Great light, really good spread of light, and having the 2 LEDs on each end is a really good feature. The various combinations of flash are a little unnecessary, but not a negative. Note that there are 2 rows of 5 lights (top and bottom) which you turn on independantly. So you can have a solid 5 with a flashing 5 - very useful. "

" They fit well, although the strap underneath sometimes interferes with my cleat.
They look good, although they have the tendancy to ride up at the front on occasion.
They are warm and certiainly shower proof, they have kept my feet dry over 12 miles in drizzle. Under very heavy wind driven cornish rain they do not keep my feet dry, but do any neoprene shoe covers?
I am very happy with them -my only true concern is the position of the strap underneath. "

Incredible amount of light
Posted28 January 2012
" I bought this as a commuter through unlit lanes and roads in cornwall where I need to be able to see rather be seen by cars.
The amount of light this gives off, even at one of its lower settings, is amazing. I can see every detail down bumpy lanes covered with sticks and other debris, and even at high speeds.
I had this at 60% off its rrp from wiggle in jan, and at that price its worth every penny (and a little more). "

good design
Posted28 January 2012
" These bottles are great, we have 2 now and are excellent for young children, driving, cycling - any time you don't want to have to tip the bottle up in the air to drink! - the water comes to you.
The 500ml size is really practical, does not fit into regular sized cycle bottle holders but its bigger brother (750ml) does. "

How waterproof is this light? Will it still work after an hour of heavy winter rain?

I have used this light in all weathers - very heavy driving winter rain, and my commute is about an hour. - No problems at all.

Does this light come with aero seat post mounts?

Does this light come with aero seat mounts already included? Or are they an extra purchase?
Hi, I just bought this, and it does not come with such a mount as far as a i can see.

Are these waterproof?

These are not bad as waterproofness goes, but not totally waterproof - as is the nature of neoprene! eventually in heavy rain it will soak through / clogg up and water will get through to your feet.
