While these lights aren't cheap, they perform well enough to make them a good value. With the side mount you can mount the front light under the stem and get it out of the way of your hands. The rear light is great and has amazing life. I only wish the mount was a little easier to use, it's great for mounting to a seatpost or something similar, but when it comes to mounting to a bikepacking bag, it seemed almost unnecessarily complicated, but I'll have to look at all the accessories again.
Smart, clean and rugged design! Absolutle recommendable!
I bought this kit about 2 weeks ago, and have used it every second day. The lights are great! Packaging is also very impressive.
I was initially concerned about the 700 lumens not being bright enough, but it's fine for my use. Granted, I don't ride at midnight or somewhere incredibly dark, but riding at dusk or early night has been fine. I've just set this to the low power/ flash mode when riding during the day and battery has lasted 4+ rides before getting down to 1 or 2 dots left on the power metre.
The blinder light is good, though it's really bright. Wishing it had another low power mode in exchange for battery life. I.e half or 3/4 brightness for double battery life. I charge it every 2nd ride. I probably should have bought the vertically aligned rear light (can't recall the name of it) as it has some lower power modes, but I'm certainly not unhappy with the blinder either.
Everything about Knog lights are super - the designs are well thought out and have convenient features such as the built in USB connector. The rear light is really bright - so bright that I'm only going to use it for night lighting, and the front headlamp is great, I really like the mounting hardware which is secure and foolproof (I've had issues with the mounting of other brands of headlamps onto my primary road bike). The headlamp's brightness is perfect and I like the feature where you can program additional lighting and brightness modes in using the software!
Charge holds for many rides— got my lights two weeks ago and still haven’t had to charge them— I’m an NYC bike commuter so I average 60 miles/ week.
Super bright and easy to install.
