      Eight settings for all occasions. Strobe settings made my computer jump its readings. Steady on settings turned my computer off! I tried moving the light farther away with some success but no acceptable mounting positions. Solution - I reversed the location of the light and computer to opposite sides of the stem and both work without interference.

        Comments about CygoLite Expilion 720 USB Headlight:

        I have been hesitant about getting a rechargeable light, but this one has interchangeable batteries and a good battery life. They make even brighter models at a premium price, but even this one is likely to make drivers flash their bright lights at you if you don't keep it aimed down at the road.

        The beam is wide enough to light a good section of road without being so wide that you lose the brightness. I've used it several times and had no issues with battery life, although I haven't made it close to the advertised life expectancy.

        My only beef with this light is that the plastic tab to remove the light from the mount seems liable to break easily. I ffel saver keeping it in the mount, and using the pretty-quick release to remove the whole mounting piece from the handlebar, even though that means fixing the aim of the light every time.

        mounting CygoLite Expilion 720

        Comments about CygoLite Expilion 720 USB Headlight:

        So far the light has functioned as advertised, and I'm happy with the purchase. However, I needed to use Loctite on the threads of the tiny screw which locates the mounting bracket to keep the light from vibrating loose when riding on rough pavement. No big deal.

        Good value for night riding

          Best Uses

          • Commuting/City

          • Shorter Night Rides

          Comments about CygoLite Expilion 720 USB Headlight:

          For me, the big plus for this light is the removeable battery AND charging on the go with a plug in battery pak to extend your night riding range. Other rechargeable lights won't allow add-on battery paks while the light is on! I can use the same battery pak as my Garmin cycle computer uses.

          My static test revealed a run time of 3 hr 30 min before the blinking warning (Med setting). Then another 15 minutes before the light dims. Medium mode works fine on most roads around here. For long overnight riding, I would recommend a hub dyno set-up.

          Also, my research shows that the Expilion models have the same body, battery & run time in different modes. The difference is in the lumen output/mode. The 720 model doesn't come with a helmet mount.

          I would recommend the 850 model for higher mode lumen output if you can get a SUPER DEAL on one. Otherwise, this 720 works great for the Nashbar discount price.

            Comments about CygoLite Expilion 720 USB Headlight:

            I have the 700 Lumen version and this 720 has even better optics so with a more oval beam spread which is advantageous, this is just a great light. My 700 has nice adequate beam spread for safe nigh time riding with enough spread to see adequately into turns but the 720 improves upon this. This output is enough for for pitch black riding at a reasonable speed in the 15 MPH area. The great features also make this light stand out.The Steady Strobe feature allows you to see a steady beam in the medium output range while also strobing for oncoming traffic so everyone sees you coming and this can not be over rated as to how much safer you are with this feature. 720 lumens may not be quite enough output for single track MTB but it gets pretty close and certainly adequate for fire roads in the woods.The replaceable battery is another great feature that allows you to have a backup power source ready to go in seconds. The number of modes may overwhelm some but it allows you to use the light for so many different situations that can come up and it is easy enough to learn how to use the light. Rugged, reliable, doesn't get too hot on high, just a tremendous light you will not regret if you buy it. The only negative I can think of is that it take a long time to recharge (many hours) and the Mini USB cover is easily lost. Otherwise, it permits night time riding like you may not have thought possible a few years ago.
