    I’d like to see a review of how the cheap generic Cree lights compare with the more expensive ones – a claimed 5000 lumens for £26 vs 1200 lumens for almost £300 seems like a no brainer, but how much are build quality, battery life and other features a factor?

    Should also point out that the same reviews are appearing under ALL the lights, so if you’re commenting on a particular light you’ll need to identify it.

    Great lights, very bright however i have had issues with both the front and rear lights where the power on/off silicone button has fell out of the hole deeming the lights impractical to use. I have again tried to contact the manufacture for support but they just don’t want to know. Good product however it is let down by some minor easily fixable issues.

    CW: Surely you can summarize all the data from the different lights into an easy to digest format, that is visual and concise, e.g. a table-of-features, some bar charts etc. Look at some PC magazines on ways to present group test results. The lamp weight, and battery size, are important considerations for buyers. And the amount of battery power remaining would be nice to know.

    Agree about the performance of the front light – but the securing mechanism is NOT good – 2 months into owning mine when hitting a pothole (no problem with anything else on bike or cheaper rear light) this expensive bit of kit fell of my bars and got run over by following vehicle – supplier not interested – (despite numerous chase up calls) -WILL NOT be buying another… if you get one b sure to make sure you have a secondary loose securing mechanism!
