Description

The Bontrager Flare R isn't just intended for use at night, but equally to improve your visibility during the day. Sadly, too many cyclists worldwide are involved in -sometimes deadly- accidents simply because motorists failed to spot them.

Bontrager has made it their mission to reduce the number of accidents by creating the Flare R rear light. Every ride becomes a safer one because of the easily visible 65 lumen lightbeam from the Bontrager Flare R.

Visible during both day and night

The rear light has a highly focused lightbeam designed for use during both day and night. You can be seen up close and from afar, with the light being visible from up to 2 kilometres away during the day. The light would even be visible from up to 5km at night.

Fantastic piece of kit

This rear light does exactly what ytou expect it to do. Very easy to operate and charge up with a standard USB charger. The rubber holder wraps around and clips very easily but it does appear to me that it could come unclipped if it were to get caught or if you ride on rough ground ? I am still to try this but very wary. The clip version looks more sturdy so will probably use this ongoing. Otherwise brilliant.

Pros

  • button for day/night easy to select

Cons

  • rubber clip appears to be maybe a weaklink?

Does a brilliant job

This is a really great tail light for daytime visibility (it also includes nice night modes also, but I used it mostly during the day). It is visible from very far away and greatly improves your safety while riding in the road. This light is so impressive that other cyclists I pass by on the road have come to me to ask about it. You may find that lights from other manufacturers offer similar lumen output, but that is not the all story -- you have to consider the light optics and the angle. Many have poor optics (wasting light energy) and point to the ground when attached to the seat post. The Brontrager Flare R has excellent optics and is angled horizontally for maximum visibility.

Pros

  • Excellent daytime visibility
  • Light weight
  • Horizontal beam
  • Useful light modes
  • Practical USB recharging

Cons

  • Price

Very bright and sturdy simple mount

Very compact and simple mount with very bright light that can be seen from side. It's a plastic design, would prefer better materials

Detailed product description

The rear light has dedicated daytime and nighttime modes, comes with mounting materials, and is USB rechargeable. A full charge will power the light for up to 23 hours. The light is visible from an impressive 270 degrees around.

The included Quick Connect mount places the Bontrager Flare R under a 16 degree angle on the seat post. This compensates the seat post angle and ensures the light always shines straight back.
