RSP’s Astrum is a really funky design with retina burning output, frugal battery consumption in flashing modes, a positive switch that doesn’t accidentally engage in the bottom of a bag yet easily operated in full-length winter weight gloves. Even the rubberised seat post bracket seems better than most. However, disappointing eighteen and three-quarter hour run-times (twenty hours quoted) in static mode and suspect sealing blotted its copybook.
This might seem harsh but chic styling aside, the Spook ight seems little more than a gimmick for the ipod age rather than a serious commuting must-have, hindered further by our test sample’s problematic build quality. Despite this, with redesign there’s some potential for heavily laden bikes lugging trailers/tag-alongs and similar couplings.
