What customers say about "Key Specs"
Cygolite Dash 350 USB Rechargeable Bicycle Headlight
  • I live in a city so I tend to use the lower setting of the Quad lamps on steady and the main light flashing so car drivers can see me.
  • On steady high mode it has a beam better than any of my flashlights.
  • At night in the city with the Dash set to Daylight flashing I can see signs 6 blocks away and people have told me to turn if off because it was so bright.
  • The dual light types is nice. One for visibility and one for lighting my path.
  • Multiple lighting options, I like the flash option which is bright for cars to detect you.
Cygolite Dash Pro 450 USB Rechargeable Bicycle Headlight
  • I chose the 450 just in case I needed more illumination on darker residential streets, and its low and medium steady settings provide enough lighting without blinding oncoming traffic.
  • he light is really awesome. Right out of the box you can tell that the thing is build with awesome quality.
  • The CygoLite is blinding! I had been using a Planet Bike Beamer 5-LED light, but purchased this CygoLite for an upcoming ride which takes place primarily on regular streets. There's no question, this is considerably brighter.
  • Really happy with this compact light. It fits nicely on both of my road bicycles, right next to my Garmin, without adding clutter.
  • The light has a number of settings that work for most situations, Including in daylight when you want to be seen but you don't want to consume all the battery power.

What customers say about "Features"
Cygolite Dash 350 USB Rechargeable Bicycle Headlight
  • This button actually has a number of nice features: on/off, recalls last setting which is great!, low battery indicator, and will even tell you when you're operating at full power for some reason.
  • I actually like the rubber strap mount, I've pulled it on tight and it doesn't really move positions.
  • I love the little led bar on this light. Once the battery starts running low switch to led only mode and you get several hours more of light.
  • I like the flexibility of being able to place it on various positions on my handlebar.
  • Another thing I love is that it has the stretchy rubber thing to attach it to the handlebars rather than a mount it slides onto.
Cygolite Dash Pro 450 USB Rechargeable Bicycle Headlight
  • Rubber mount has not torn or stretched yet. I occasionally have to tighten the swivel mount underneath the light as it turns on its own.
  • Bar mount works with standard and ergo road drop bars (among others). Strongly recommend.
  • The combination of lighting systems is smart, and the switch that toggles through the different beam/output combinations is very easy to use.
  • I do like the flexible strap, it lets me move the CygoLite between bikes easily. Some have commented that the light still moves too much.
  • The reason for my deducting one star: the rubber strap it comes with for handlebar mounting...I'm concerned that it's not going to last very long since the material isn't as stiff and sturdy as I would like.

What customers say about "Power"
Cygolite Dash 350 USB Rechargeable Bicycle Headlight
  • So far the battery life is great. Only charged once in a month.
  • It's durable, charges relatively fast, extremely bright on it's highest setting.
  • Rechargeable battery is much easier than having to swap out batteries every few weeks. Holds a long charge.
  • Nice, bright light with a long-lasting battery.
  • Compact unobtrusive bar mount and very powerful. Long lasting charge.
Cygolite Dash Pro 450 USB Rechargeable Bicycle Headlight
  • It has several modes that make it useful for being visible to oncoming traffic as well a pretty good battery life.
  • I like the fact that I can hook up my battery bank and start to charge/ use the light on empty (micro USB cord required).
  • Rechargeable battery also adds to the value of this light.
  • Also, I purchased this with the Hotshot 50, which has several functions as well and great battery life. The only very minor drawback is that they both use different USB connections.
  • The battery has a run time of several hours on this setting, more on other settings. My one complaint is that there is not an indicator of how much charge the battery has.
