Planet Bike Superflash Turbo
Planet Bike makes some of more popular blinkie lights out there, with the time tested Superflash being unmistakable on the road. The new Superflash Turbo ups the ante with a higher powered 1 Watt LED (the old Superflash was a 1/2 Watt), while keeping the retail price right around the $30 mark. The flash pattern has been turned to eleven as well on the Turbo model, with an even more “random-looking” pattern that is truly eye catching, and according to the literature visible from a mile away. It’s so bright that I’d recommend getting a less powerful blinkie for group rides, as I’d hate to get caught behind this for long. For commuting and general night riding however, light it up, and this does the job. Flash, steady 1 Watt LED and off are the only choices here, making it easy to turn on/off even with gloves on and keys in hand. The pair of AAA batteries are longer lasting than the button-cells in other lights, and rechargeable versions are readily available for every day riders. If you’re looking for one of the brightest tail lights out there, this is a solid choice.
