Cateye’s CL EL 600 is a rechargeable, single watt LED front light well suited to urban commuting and as a complement to dynamo systems but despite generally good build quality and user friendly design, more accessible batteries and a USB charging option would be welcome refinements.
So much more than simply a heart rate monitor, Cat-Eye’s MRC H220 does pretty much everything bar make the tea while remaining relevant and user friendly for novice and seasoned riders alike.
Cateye's EL-120 is designed as a backup or town light. To that end it doesn't have the brightest beam but the light it does put out is well-focused and useful and certainly enough to get you home.
Side visibility is addressed in the design but to be honest it's pretty average; other Cateye units fare much better in this area. If you regularly dart out of junctions at night you might want something with a bit more peripheral light.
Twelve quid can buy you a lot these days; the LD130 is a very decent rear lamp that comes with Cateye's excellent twist-to-lock mount. You even get the batteries thrown in.
The LD130 is a pretty standard-spec unit, using 2AAA batteries to power three LEDs. They're not hugely powerful but fine for use about town, and the lower output compared to some of the new high-power LEDs means that the battery life is very good, especially in flashing mode, making it good for fit-and-forget commuting duties.
