Anyone know anything about this?

 

Smacks of too good to be true/ scam at that price.

Non UK company, presumably USA.
The check out takes you to PayPal, so a degree of protection.

A lot of bollocks about day time accidents in the site.

Probably is same aye.
I bought a flat bench. It was exactly the same as Kmart brand, they simply stuck my postage details upon box. Didn't mind though, I wouldn't have bought bench if not happy.
Looks like same light aye.
Is 100lumen bright? Surely a flasher would attract attention and it's not like the majority of us are super fast riders eg ohh look, a bike

These are really good, compact and smart. I know people that have them. The scam is buying a rebranded American one. Buy from Aliexpress.

Several people I ride with have these lights (copies) and IMO they are nothing special. Certainly not super bright like 100 lumens should be, I would estimate 30 lumens, adequate but not outstanding.

They don't appear to shine any brighter when braking even though they are claimed to, just go from flashing to solid.

The auto on and off automatically would be handy though some users (particularly people that use them as DRLs) may prefer to still do it manually so they know they are actually on rather than presuming the light has turned itself on when for whatever reason it hasn't (flat battery maybe?)

Could be good to use as a second light, in conjunction with a brighter main one (brand name with genuine lumens not made up/guesstimate Chinese lumens).

They are available on Amazon at really low prices...I have 2 of them.

 

The brake function works really well but they are not very bright during daylight riding..
