Comments about Planet Bike Blaze 500 XLR USB Headlight:

I ride a road bike during the day. When I ride through a section of road that is totally in shadow I turn on the light, stobe mode. If I am riding where there is a significant amount of car traffic I turn on the light, again strobe mode.

This light is bright enough that, while strobing, I can see it reflecting off street signs in the open light of day. Fellow riders have commented that it is one of the brightest lights they have seen for the price, and that the price is reasonable.

My only beef is that the USB charging cord is only about a foot long. Not really a big deal.

IMO it is a good looking light. It is VERY easy to remove/place on the handlebar mount. And with a rubber shim the handlebar mount is rock solid.

Very Good Daylight Headlight

By Big Light

from East of Cleveland, OH

About Me Avid Cyclist

See all my reviews

Pros

  • Durable
  • Solid mounting

Cons

  • Short Usb Cord

Best Uses

  • Commuting/City
  • Road Biking

Comments about Planet Bike Blaze 500 XLR USB Headlight:

+ IMO it is a nice looking light. I use it on my road bike for daylight and twilight riding. I don't ride at night.

+ BRIGHT: during daylight rides, when in strobe mode, I can see its light reflecting off traffic signs ahead of me.

+ EASY TO USE: One press of its power button switches modes while a long press shuts it off. When turned off and then on, the mode which was in use just prior to turn-off is again active.

+ MOUNTING: it is VERY secure when mounted and its mount is VERY secure on my handlebars. The light and its mount are easy to install and remove.

+ SAFETY: It has a lock mode to prevent it from being bumped on while not on the bike. Planet Bike recommends this mode for off bike storage since if it is bumped on it can get hot.

~ CHARGING: USB is charging "OK," but the supplied USB cord is very short (less than 12 inches).
