Light & Motion Visa 360 is beautifully made, a delight to use and when all’s said and done, worthy of the asking price. 140lumen output outstrips many mid range bike mounted systems but Light & Motion have ensured this prowess doesn’t have the effect of blinding oncoming traffic. Run and charge times are practical for most commuters and 135g neither feels cumbersome or encroaches on rider freedom. However, the Visa is designed to compliment rather than substitute bike mounted systems and though genuinely visible from 360 degrees, blind spots were still possible when turning the head far left/right.
