As the lightest, brightest, most compact light in its class, the custom engineered reflector optimizes the light to provide a smooth, even beam pattern that precisely focuses the light right where you need it. 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 500 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, and 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 commuter light wasn't waterproof. Knowing this, Light and Motion designed the Urban 500 to test fully waterproof in 1 meter of water for 30 minutes. Therefore, when the skies open up, the sealed waterproof design may not get you home dry, but it will get you home safe.
With multiple power levels (low, medium, high), the Light and Motion Urban 500 lets you adapt the lighting to various conditions. At a mere 121 grams, you'd be hard pressed to notice the weight of the Urban 500 as you meander through town. The Urban 500 is USB rechargeable so that you can conveniently recharge the battery at work or at the coffee shop, while the accurate 4 level battery charge status indicataor enables you to know if you have enough charge to make it, ensuring you never go without lighting. Reliable, durable, visible; the Urban 500 was designed with the every day commuter in mind.

Been using the light for my nightly commute which is a little less than an hour. I go for some at half-power and part at full power and the indicator gets into the yellow state so I can't get more than one ride per charge. A little inconvenient, but otherwise happy with the amount of light it puts out.
After daylight savings my commute is completely in the dark & I needed a bright light to get home. Since I live in the Pacific NW I also needed something that was water proof. This light works well on both accounts. There is plenty of light to light up the road. I have no problem seeing things. On the down side, I wish this light had a permenent bar mount. I have to take the whole light off to charge it. Not a real big deal but a little hassle. Also the 1.5 of battery life on high must be for warm weather. My commute is 1 hr, 25 min & the light gives out before I'm home. But the temp is ~40 degrees so that will lessen battery life. Overall, I'm pleased with the light.
