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 Metro 400 USB Rechargeable Bike Light
  • Great for trails, easy to mount and adjust. Stays put, great coverage. VERY bright on high.
  • I love this light. It's bright, compact, has a great variety of modes.
  • Good Quality light and sufficiently bright on the brightest setting.
  • Great light overall. The blinking modes are very bright and clearly visible.
  • The light is extremely bright and couldn't be easier to attach.

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 Metro 400 USB Rechargeable Bike Light
  • Great light - fits nicely on both of my bikes and works well.
  • The adjustable left/right swivel is great for centering the light beam, doesn't move unless you force it.
  • Also, the mount was easy to install, but almost did not fit the circumference of my round handlebar.
  • The light is easily removed and recharged. Also works great as a flashlight.
  • Easy to mount. Easy to take on and off mount to recharge with USB cable.
  • The mounting block on top of the clamp is always really loose and no amount of tightening of the screw that holds it on will keep it in place.
