NiteRider Solas Tail Light
Everyone always worries about how many lumens their headlamp is throwing out, but what about your rear? Making sure that cars can see you from behind is important, and the more warning you can give them, the better. The Niterider Solas tail light is a 2 watt tail light that will give drivers PLENTY of warning that you're there. It's one of the brightest tail lights we've ever seen. It also includes a "group ride mode" that lets you lower the flash brightness so you don't blind your riding buddies when you take your pull out front.
  • Quick release seatpost and seatstay mounts included
  • USB rechargeable
  • Long lasting lithium polymer battery
  • Powerful 2 watt LED bulb with custom reflectors
  • 4 modes (two flash, two steady)
  • Up to 36 hours of run time on low steady, 4.30 hours on high steady

      Use anytime I'm on one of my bikes whether commuting to my health club or for general recreational road biking. So bright I use it even in daylight. Lightweight and small. Built in clip in addition to seat post attachment. The low power feature is nice for group rides.

          I do a lot of right riding due to shift work, the Nite Rider Solas 2 give great peace of mind that I will be seen from the rear.
          light is VERY bright on strobe, but the mount lets you angle it down to not blind drivers.

            Comments about NiteRider Solas Tail Light:

            SEEMS BRIGHT ENOUGH AT NIGHT, BUT DOES NOT COMPARE TO THE THUNDERBOLT I HAD. IT IS NOT NOTICEABLE IN DAYLIGHT BY COMPARISON. BECAUSE OF THIS I ONLY USE IT FOR EVENING/NIGHT. FOR DAYLIGHT, I NOW USE THE WHITE KNOG BLINKER ON MY SEAT POST AND IT IS REALLY NOTICEABLE. SOLAS DOES LAST LONGER ON HIGH SETTING THAN THE THUNDERBOLT WHICH IS WHY I BOUGHT IT. THE LIGHT PIVOTS LEFT TO RIGHT, SEEMS LIKE THE SNAP IN CONNECTOR SHOULD BE OF A STURDIER DESIGN TO KEEP THE LIGHT FROM WANDERING FROM THE VERTICAL POSITION. ALSO BY COMPARISON IT IS HEAVY.

              This light is what it is said to be for functionality and safety. Haven't used it on long rides. Don't have a tail light? This is worth the $$. Once my wife saw it functioning she said "I'm not going to worry so much about you now." That's from someone who's not a cyclist (and from one who loves me).

                  Comments about NiteRider Solas Tail Light:

                  I purchased this light after reading numerous reviews and extensive "Taillight Shootouts". This light always ranked very high and I have had excellent luck with all of my NiteRider products, so what could I lose?
                  The light is super bright, almost painful if you look directly at it - nice! Living in a bike-ambivalent city, I couldn't ask for a better "HERE I AM", aside from some of the permanent, much higher priced (European) models.

                  Comments about NiteRider Solas Tail Light:

                  I have used a lot of different tail lights in the last 10 years of commuting. This one is the best! It's brighter than my Planet Bike Superflash. Belt clip is a must have for me, but I ended up using the chainstay mount on my commuter, I can still slip it out of that mount and use the belt clip on another bike. Perfect! Easy! Versatile! I have been using it for two weeks, an hour each day, on the initial charge. Blue flashes when I turn it off tell me that it doesn't need recharging yet. I love it!

                    Using clip on light mounted to velcro on back of my helmet. Very bright. Use the brightest blinking option for early morning and evening commutes in the dark. Many comments on how bright the light is. Easy to recharge with USB cable.

                        Good for several commutes between charges. I commute in the dark during the winter months and this light definitely gives me pesace of mind.
