Blackburn Dayblazer 1100 review

The brightest light in Blackburn's new range has a sleek, chic look and functions for both day and night riding.

Blackburn Dayblazer 1100
Cycling Weekly Verdict

A good-looking, powerful light that's easy to use but lacking some of the functionality of other lights at this price, and we'd like to be able to use any USB cable to charge it, not just the one it comes with.

The Blackburn Dayblazer 1100 is the most powerful of the new Dayblazer range, which has a strikingly angular modern design with the suggestion of cooling fins on its black aluminium case.

The Dayblazer 1100, which has a replaceable battery, stacks two LEDs on top of each other rather rather than side by side as some such as the Lezyne Lite Drive 800XL do, presumably with the intention of taking up less space on the handlebar.
