Visible from up to 1200 feet, the Fibre Flare is a unique, ultra powerful LED further enhanced by its 360-degree beam. Attaching to a wide choice of surfaces courtesy of clever silicone mounting brackets, that lend themselves particularly well to illuminating trailer/bikes. Sure, 30 quid’s not cheap but with impressive run times, solid build quality and versatility there’s little that comes close.
£249 is a lot of money to pay for a set of lights but if that's the kind of money you're thinking of spending then the Nuke Proof Reactor is a serious contender for your cash. It's a well constructed, capable and versatile light with great stamina that'll be a fine companion on after-dark excursions.
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.
