- Commute/towpath/occasional off road rear light
My Lezyne Zecto has shat itself yet again. Hated it anyways (short run time, unreliable, badly sealed) so I need a new primary (solid, backed up with a flasher I already have) rear light, for road commutes, but also for some off-road night rides and bridleway stuff.
Suggestions under 40 quid please. Currently thinking either Exposure TraceR or Cateye X3. The former looks very well built, long run times, the latter apparently not as well sealed, but I like the idea of being able to run it as a solid one side/flash the other.
Any suggestions welcome. I’ve tried Aldi and stuff before and I want something a bit more robust with a built in battery.Posted 1 year agoaidsoMember
I use 2 Knog Blinders, interchangeable on road and mtb bikes. They charge from USB and last for a few hours. Have had other cyclists ask what they were as they could be seen flashing from a good distance behind – so that’s a good enough reassurance for me.

An ebay-clone of the Zecto.
I think Lezyne must get the ones that fail the QC checks as mine have lasted forever.Posted 1 year agojoebristolSubscriber
Another vote for the Moon Nebula. USB rechargeable, seems stable when fixed to the seatpost, but still easy to move between bikes.
It also has a setting where it’s always on, but pulses brighter like a flasher. Love that.
If you run it on solid it has about 3 or 4 brightness settings, each one more retina burning than the last. A driver could never claim not to have seen it – think 100 lumens on the brightest setting.Posted 1 year ago
