A no-compromise commuter companion.
Illuminate the road ahead while staying illuminated to motorists with the Exposure Flash & Flare Light Combo. The Flash and the Flare easily attach to your handlebar and seatpost, respectively, while also providing a bright light for the dark streets ahead and a highly visible beacon to be seen by other drivers on the road. The Flash shines a powerful 110 lumens to keep every twist and turn on your ride home well-lit, and the Flare switches between a pulsing and steady mode with just the twist of a dial to accommodate your commuting needs. Both operate on either disposable batteries or the re-chargeable Exposure battery.

Many years of service

This is a great little light from Exposure. Unfortunately, after many years of use, and some over-tightening, mine broke. I'm a little hesitant to buy another because of the twist on/off, but it's proving difficult to find something of similar micro size that incorporates a CR123 (rechargeable) with a strobe function at around the 100lm level so that the battery last many hours. Just enough light to get you through the first twenty minutes of a predawn mtb race, or convince check point officials to let you pass after the no-lights time cutoff of an ultraendurance because you haven't trained when you have a new kid. ("They didn't say what kind of light. Go!")
Slight increase in lumens since I bought mine. There are a lot of other offerings out there with multiple times the lumens, but this one is really great for its balanced size, output, and life. Also, since the Flash sits flush with the handle bars, there is no knee bumping when out of the saddle.
The Flare is also a really nice taillight, but expect the same issue with the plastic twist head after years. Also, if you have an aero seat post, you may want to wrap a small piece of bike tube to keep it steady.
