For a total light package, we’ve also tested six rear lights including Topeak’s Redlite Aero 1W, Cateye Rapid X2, Knog Blinder MOB V Mr Chips, Lezyne’s Zecto Max Drive and Exposure’s TraceR.
TOPEAK REDLITE AERO 1W
On paper Topeak’s Redlite Aero 1W is nothing remarkable, but it’s always the one that’s ready to go and never failed us out on a ride. Four modes max out at 55 lumens (two-hour runtime) with a low battery indicator. Different back pieces and bands fit various shaped tubes/posts, the single LED strip is angled and it charges in two hours.
