Silva, lights test 2012

It's a neat package, easy to fit and good-looking - ideal for someone who rides on roads with some ambient lighting, or as a second headlight for roads with less street lighting.

Despite being a cable light and battery combo, the Pave is a surprisingly small package.

It can be mounted either on helmet or bike, and thanks to a cable extension the battery mount is quite versatile.

The beam, with its flood-type width, is still good enough to pick out detail at a moderate pace of 10-14mph.
