A great light for urban commuting and country lane riding. Highly recommended.
Easy, one button operation
Range of beam settings good for urban and country lane riding
The standard mount allows the light to move
The Exposure Lights Sirius Mk3 front light is billed as a light for urban riding and commuting and so was tested on an hour-long commute home, starting in the half-light and ending in pitch dark.
It couldn’t be easier to use — double press the one operating button on the rear (which also acts as a battery health indicator), or continue holding for flashing. The flashing ‘SOS’ mode gave much needed security against the usual hazards when riding through town.
Once on a darkening country lane you can select a ‘low’ constant beam by simply ‘scrolling’ through the three beam settings (high/medium/low) using the one button.
The mount, affixed with a rubber strap, enabled me to position the beam by tilting the light forward/back; the rubber mount though does mean the light does ride up occasionally, especially when it’s bumpy — Exposure makes a more stable fixed mount which the Sirius will click in and out of.
