Black­burn Count­down 1600 £134.99

Mountain Biking UK - - WRECKED & RATED -

Black­burn’s boxy self-con­tained light gives im­pres­sive power, com­mu­ni­ca­tion and con­trol for shorter rides. The com­pact metal body slides on and off a hinged clamp, which needs to be tight­ened hard to avoid wob­ble. Twin LEDs give a no­tice­able ‘dou­ble bar­rel’ ef­fect, with a mo­lar-shaped sec­ondary throw that’s oc­ca­sion­ally dis­tract­ing when swerv­ing around on mixed ter­rain. The small bat­tery means run times look scary-short on pa­per, but the big screen on top of the light gives un­miss­able run time and power info. Three but­tons let you scroll ei­ther way through the power and strobe menu or hit max­i­mum ‘Blitz’ mode im­me­di­ately. They also make it easy to turn the light on ac­ci­den­tally. We’ve not had the Count­down long, but Black­burn re­li­a­bil­ity is gen­er­ally good.
