When you're spinning around town, it's mighty important to ensure you can see the road ahead and all that it may throw at you. More importantly, you want to get the attention of cars like they're the hotty across the bar! The Light and Motion Urban packs 800 lumens into the lightest, brightest, most compact light in its class, providing you with a bountiful amount of light that will ensure you can see and be seen on the roadway. The custom engineered micro-peened reflector optimizes the light to provide a smooth , even beam pattern that precisely focuses the light right where you need it. The Urban 800 enhances the rider's depth perception with a beam pattern that was engineered with optics that eliminates the snowball effect with a clean transition across the beam.
As a dedicated commuter lamp, Light and Motion recognizes that side lighting is just as vital to safety as head lighting. Side lighting doesn't necessarily enhance rider visibility, but more so enables visibility for drivers to see the rider. The Urban 800 strategically features side lighting to maximize visibility on roadways with a dedicated button to switch the side lights on and off.
Shorter days mean wetter days. As the winter chill moves in and the sun grows shy, most of us are forced to ride in the dark. It just wouldn't make much sense if a keen cycling light wasn't waterproof. Knowing this, Light and Motion designed the Urban 800 to test fully waterproof in 1 meter of water for 30 minutes. Therefore, when the skies open up, this sealed water proof design may not get you home dry, but it will get you home safe.
The Light and Motion Urban® 800 provides multiple power levels (low, medium, high) to suit your every riding need. Weighing slightly more than a pile of feathers, you'll hardly notice the weight of the light on your handlebar. Wired for rapid recharging, the Urban 800 Fast Charge uses a 2A USB adapter to get you pedaling in a hurry. The Urban 800 is loaded with fetaures to meet the needs of commuters zipping around town, yet its bright enough for trail-junkies to ride in confidence.

This light is top notch. It's built solid, waterproof, and is exceptionally bright. There are three brightness settings plus a pulse mode. The pulse is great because it grabs attention without being disorienting to yourself or others. I keep it on pulse for most of my riding around town as it keeps the drain on the battery low.
When things start getting too dark, switching to full power gives you a powerful high-beam which illuminates the road or trail very well. The high setting is quite draining, however, but is great for when you need it.
I prefer having the fast charge version for convenience, but there is also a normal version available if you want to spend less and don't have a need to charge on the fly.
I don't think I will ever need a better light than this, and it's hard to beat the output in such a small convenient light.
PROS: Durable, Easy to Use, Versatile, Bright, Good battery life
BEST USES: Commuting, Road Bikes, Long Rides, Mountain Bikes
Works but charge indicator light or battery is problematic
Just bought the Urban 800 FC for my 45 minute commute-ride and used it a few times in 55-60 degree weather. The light is small, lightweight, easy and secure to mount and it does charge fast as advertised. It's also easy to operate -- no complicated switch settings to remember. So why three stars? Because either there is a problem with the charge indicator light, or with the (non-replaceable) battery. The charge indicator light goes red after only 45 minutes, but the light is supposed to last 1:30 on high! Either the battery is not holding a charge (even though I fully charged it), or the charge indicator light algorithm is bogus. Light & Motion said the indicator light could possibly go red at only 50%, but their own manual does not agree -- and if so what good is the indicator light? It's supposed to warn you how much light you have left. They told me to test it by running it down all the way and timing the result. That probably won't tell me much as I think the light will dim itself before full discharge so it will be difficult to tell if it's still on high at 1:30. At this point, I'm not very happy with the light. It's a shame because besides this problem, the light works great.
