Kryp­tonite are known for their heavy­duty locks and the Street F-450 is the cheap­est light here… and feels it. In­stead of a sleek, metal­lic body, it has a rather crude plas­tic one that mounts with a clunky ratchet mech­a­nism in­stead of us­ing an un­fussy rub­ber band. But don’t let those put you off, be­cause un­der­neath its rough ex­te­rior is a pretty good lit­tle light. It’s USB recharge­able, has six modes (three of which are steady and three that flash, and pro­duces 450 lu­mens of il­lu­mi­na­tion on its most pow­er­ful setting) and, when com­bined with its mount, weighs a per­fectly rea­son­able 152g. Al­though clunky, its mount is prac­ti­cal and con­ve­nient, with 45° of ro­ta­tion each way and a trig­ger so you can de­tach the light from it. The Street F-450’s vis­i­bil­ity from the side is good thanks to port­holes on the sides of its body, and it lights your path with a beam that spreads out re­as­sur­ingly wide from its in­tense core. madi­
