What customers say about "Key Specs"
Cygolite Dash 320 USB Light
  • I did'nt expect this to be so bright! It's wonderful!
  • The daytime running/flashing function of the 4 individual L.E.D.s on the top, help others to see me, and not think I'm part of the background!
  • Great little bike light, that recharges at your computer at work.
  • You can even set it to blink in 4 of its 7..count 'em..7 modes! In 3 of those 4 blinking modes, the main light blinks along with the 4 lights up top!
  • This light will show the road, and the beam is wide enough to see things off the road.
Cygolite Metro 360 USB Bicycle Headlight
  • The Metro 360 is a very, very bright light. Since I typically ride where there are street lights, I find the medium setting to be totally adequate for most of my uses.
  • There is a steadypulse, which is about the brigthness of medium, with a subtle pulse to it - makes it easy to be noticed.
  • I find the beam pattern quite appropriate for bicycle mounting - it's wide enough to cover a reasonable chunk of the road ahead when mounted on the handlebars.
  • The Daylightning strobe mode is very aggressive, and will make you stand out in broad daylight.
  • The full brightness mode is really overkill if you have any ambient light, and I save it for completely unlit areas to conserve battery power.

What customers say about "Features"
Cygolite Dash 320 USB Light
  • It's so friggen easy to attach/remove. Build quality is great. It swivels.
  • Mounting on the handlebar of my road bike is also a snap.
  • Only charged it once and have about 4 hours on it and it's still bright!
  • Love the quick mount/dismount, though I wish there were some in-between holes to use - but that would likely be a weaker strap
  • It has low battery indication so u know when to charge.
Cygolite Metro 360 USB Bicycle Headlight
  • The mounting bracket is simple and effective. The thumb screw tightens and you can latch it in place.
  • The mount is super-strong - A problem I had with so many other lights is that the mount kept coming loose, and had to be adjusted all the time.
  • USB charging is actually about as handy as carrying extra batteries, although I keep an extra light in those rare instances when I run low.
  • The light is well made and the mounting bracket is pretty flexible for different styles of handlebars.
  • The Cygolite Metro is rechargeable via USB and seems to hold the charge for a long time.

What customers say about "Power"
Cygolite Dash 320 USB Light
  • This light is incredible. I have used it for well over a year and it only fails me when I fail it. What I mean by that is, If I forget to charge it, it doesn't work.
  • The battery life is as described and charging via the supplied USB cable is easy.
  • It holds a charge so long that I sometimes forget to charge it over the weekend, and on Monday I get half a rides worth of light.
  • Keeps its charge well and easy to recharge via USB.
  • Very bright, battery lasts long enough, many settings. I use it to commute daily in a city, and I'm confident that I'm easily seen.
Cygolite Metro 360 USB Bicycle Headlight
  • I often use the safety blinker ("Daylightning") mode. The battery lasts seemingly forever using this mode
  • I've never had this thing run out of power during use yet; I just recharge it when I remember to, and it's always good to go.
  • Battery life is long enough for me to not be bothered by it.
  • I would say I get about 6-8 commutes out of a single charge (25 mins).
  • I use it 2-3 times a day for about 20 minutes each time and go longer than a wek without charging.
