Out of the bin.

Light & Motion is one of the only brands that doesn’t load up its front lights with features and tech while relegating rear lights to the one-trick-pony bin. Case in point: the Vis 180 Pro Rear Light, which combines the usual features—flashing and steady modes—with amber colored sidelights. These increase the range of visibility and also recall the running lights on the cars and trucks we share the road with, reinforcing our status as vehicles by replicating a feature that most road users associate with automobiles.

The light can also be set to paceline mode, which turns off the red but leaves on the amber. This spares whoever is on your wheel while upping group visibility to the side—especially useful in critical mass-type scenarios where you're riding with a group who may not be making the best choices as far as lighting goes.

  • A cycling rear light that's considerate to other cyclists
  • Relatively high lumen output insists on visibility in low-light
  • Amber sidelights increase angles of visible light
  • Paceline mode spares your fellow cyclists a retina burn
  • Daylight mode pulses to get you noticed in traffic
  • Virtually universal micro USB port means you're never far from a recharge

Long Lasting and Dependable!

This is my third light of this version. They seem to last somewhere around four to five years. Each one has been a little better than the last. I do notice the models have changed some of the flash modes. I like the variety. Even the lowest setting gives plenty of bright light to make drivers notice me. Last winter, I was stopped one afternoon and asked by a another rider what kind of light I had on my seat post. He had noticed me riding for years and liked the brightness the light gives off. I have been riding for over thirty years. There's a good reason I continue to buy this Light and Motion product.

Terrible mount design and strobe options

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

The mount involves a rubber strap with holes, like a belt. On my standard seat post, the tightest I could make the strap without breaking wouldn't stop the light from moving on the seat post. That's partially because the rubber on the mount itself isn't very big or particularly spongy/grippy. More frustrating than that, the light doesn't release from the mount without taking the whole mount off the seat post. Which effectively means every time you charge the light you have to unhook the strap unless you happen to have a USB cord long enough to reach the bike. Why didn't they make a quick release so that the light can easily detach? My riding partners noted that the red light is always on. That's not quite true, but they are correct that the light is on for several second before it strobes once briefly, or in another setting it throbs very slowly with relatively little difference between full bright and dimmest. The effect is that there's very little dynamic element in any of the available strobing patterns which I think diminishes the effectiveness. Battery life suffers too, less than what is rated. Fail, very disappointing, hence returned. Thank you to CC though for great customer service and return policy as usual.
