Spe­cial­ized Stix Elite rear light £30

Mountain Biking UK - - WRECKED & RATED - Rob

The Stix Elite uses its own USB key to dock into the flex­i­ble rub­ber seat­post mount, where a rub­berised cover snaps into place to keep it se­cure. Wa­ter can still get in though, and the key can get pretty wet dur­ing down­pours, so it’s im­por­tant to make sure to let the light dry be­fore recharg­ing it. There are two con­stant modes, but we elected to use one of the four flash­ing set­tings to string out bat­tery life. Spe­cial­ized claim the light will last a whop­ping 77 hours on ‘Eco Flash’ mode, with charg­ing tak­ing just 2.5 hours. A red/green bat­tery life in­di­ca­tor makes it easy to see when it needs top­ping up. The Stix Elite’s com­pact size and stand­out vis­i­bil­ity (Spesh claim it puts out 68 lu­mens in its bright­est mode) mean it’s a great lit­tle rear light to carry in your pack in case the light starts to fade when you’re on your way home from the trails. www.spe­cial­ized.com
