For commutes longer than 30 minutes you can get more battery life out of it by running it on a lower setting- the Expilion will run for 3 hours on the 425 lumens setting. If you like to always have a full battery, the Expilion has a swappable 3.7-volt lithium-ion battery, though you'll have to purchase the spare separately. See More
The Cygolite Expilion 850 is one of the brightest light for the price. The highest setting emits 850 lumens of light which is great for roads with no lighting at all like in rural areas or off-road trails. Even on the lower setting it's still bright enough for non-illuminated bike paths. See More
The mount on the Expilion 850 clips around the handlebar, and then you slide on the light itself on the stationary mount. That means, you only have to aim the light in the direction of your choice once, and it will maintain it's direction when you come back to it. See More
The rubber mounts are basically straps that hook around the handlebar and hold the headlight in place like a band would. This allows the light to slide forward or backward, especially on bumpy roads. Sometimes, the rubber mount can break, but you can get replacements from their website. See More
The Cycle Torch is so bright that you might even be concerned about blinding passing pedestrians. It emits 500 lumens on the highest setting. The beam is well angled, so that you can both see in front and to the sides as you're riding, Letting light out on the sides also lets drivers see you better. See More
