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

      I am on my second one because the first one bounced out when I hit a pot hole and I didn't realize it until I got home. Just make sure it is locked in place and you shouldn't have a problem like that.

            This light is bright enough for daytime use but has 4 levels, since the brightest might be too much for the rider behind you. It holds a charge for much longer than anything else I have tried, and lets you know when the charge is below 25%. This light is head and shoulders above the rest!

              I really like this light! It is very bright, has many settings, and is chargeable. It is mounted on my bag below my seat. I feel a lot safer with this light on my bike!

                  Great to be able to select a less aggressive flash during group rides. Easy to use bike mount, also clips on to my hydration belt during runs!

                    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.

                          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.
