Light and Motion Urban 800 Fast Charge
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.

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.
