Lupine - the Rolls Royce of front lights

Posted11 November 2010
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: blinding light for oncoming traffic
This little baby is like having a second sun mounted on your handlebars. True it cost nearly as much as the winter bike it's on, but it depends on how much you like your collar bone or a delay whilst you mend a puncture you could have avoided.
I use it on a greenway and it lights the whole path up. The full charge gives 12 hours of continuous light. This compares with 1 hour on the £100 light I bought last year. Now I don't have to worry about whether it will last, or about getting delayed and not having enough charge.
The trouble with the last one was the light was barely above the ambient of the street light (on a different route), so it only really worked between street lights. This means your constantly going from 'white' to 'amber' light. This baby lights as much road as you want..... it has a dip if you need to use it.
Basically you seem to pay £100 per hour of charge, on that basis it's good value. Now I look forward to my commute.
