    CygoLite Metro 360 USB Front Bike Light is rated 4.5385 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great light I just purchased this light as an upgrade in lumens per dollar value and for the small, relatively compact size and self-contained battery. Portions of my commute are well-lit, and other portions are pitch dark. The light is quick and easy to install on the handlebar without any tools. The light also slides out of the bracket easily, which is both a pro and a con; you don't want to leave your bike somewhere with the light attached. I was drawn to this particular light because it seemed an excellent value for an inexpensive rechargeable system. It has 4 different brightness levels and two flashing modes. The brightest setting (360 lumens) is very bright, so much so that I will only be using it on the darkest sections of road. I also like Cygolite's availability of several accessories including helmet mount, spare charging cable, wall charger, and spare mount. This seems like a quality product at a very reasonable price. The biggest issue and the reason I can't give this light 5 stars is that it interferes with my wireless cycle computer (a Cateye Urban Wireless) when in the steady pulse flashing mode. The display reads zero mph when the light is in that mode, and picks back up in any other mode. The very bright DayLightning mode does not cause any problems, and neither do the steady modes. A short search on the internet revealed that this is not an uncommon issue with flashing LED lights and wireless cycle computers and is caused by radio frequency interference. Possible fixes include moving to a wired computer, increasing the distance between light and computer, and my favorite, building a tinfoil hat for the light. This is not a deal-breaker for me, but it is an issue that people might want to be aware of. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a good way to know before you buy whether a particular light will cause interference with a particular wireless computer. I can't comment on durability yet but anticipate many hours of brightly lit riding.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from These things get brighter and brighter I have the CygoLite 150, which I got a few years ago and I thought that was a great bike light! But this is even better! The output is twice as brighter, the quality of the light is great and the throw is even farther. I like that it has a lightning feature for day time use, although I haven't used it, but I can see it's application for being seen during the day a great function. My only con is that the battery technology hasn't changed, therefore it only gets half the battery life, but the 360 costs half of what I paid for the 150. I would recommend this as a main source of light even is you don't plan on riding at night, becuase those cheap $20 dollar lights won't be seen by drivers in the first place. Pair this with the planet bike super flash and you'll be seen in all directions, day and night.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright, convenient, lightweight Perfect light for early morning/late evening paved trail or road riding. Even beam with no "hot spots" or gaps. Easily adjustable, yet secure attachment to handlebar. Multiple settings allow to adjust for conditions and personal preference. Rechargable convenience, with multi-hour runtime in non-max mode. For the gram-conscious, there may be slightly lighter options, but I'm fine with a few more grams to improve my odds of returning home in one piece. This light's combination of brightness, runtime, solidity, recharability, and price creates a very high overall value.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with Light I like to go for 30 mile rides on trails and streets and I have had people tell me the light is bright and the cars notice me during low light and foul weather conditions.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My first headlight I finally decided that I needed a light for road riding after work into darkness and this was recommended to me by a cyclist I met in the store while browsing. It allows others to see me approaching but it only gives me about 20 feet of road visibility so I have to reduce my speed to make sure I don't hit any serious potholes or obstructions. But still, I'm impressed that such a small, lightweight unit can do so well. Overall it's a good light and I would recommend it to riders who understand its limitations.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent light! I've gone through many lights. Lost some, broke some, some just died. Wish I'd have known about this brand years ago. Buy once, buy right. Get this light! To be specific, I was riding home with it for the first time last night on the Schuylkill River Trail(PA). There is a section between Norristown and Conshy where I feel like I'm in a scene from Lord of the Rings or something. Quite dark. This light let me see the trail and a great distance in front as well. Really,if you are considering head lights don't waste $20-$30 on something that will be basically little more than a safety light. Grab this so you can be seen and also actually see! (I was also tired of batteries, the USB rechargeable feature rules!)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend!! I use this light mostly for night riding which gives out a really bright beam and visibility and range. It's also ideal for daytime riding with the 500 lumens of flash. Battery life I found to be great it goes for 2 hours straight with no loss of light or power on the high setting! Great quality!! Easy to use mount which locks in to place tightly. Made In The USA!!!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent light, useful and great value Note: I'm holding back one star because I haven't used this light very long, but I have a feeling that it will earn that star if what I've seen so far is any indication. This light appealed to me for several reasons, although being rechargeable was one of the main reasons. A word up front about that: I've now used the light about 6 or 7 times and I have yet to charge it, so it appears to have excellent battery-life but I really have no idea just how excellent or just how charged it was in the store when I bought it- but if what I've seen so far is any indication, I'm expecting to be very happy with the performance of the battery. The illumination is great, with several different modes to choose from. I ride on hard-surface trails that are shared with pedestrians, and often during sunset hours too so I find it importnat both to be seen and be able to see where I'm going. This light does well at both jobs. The quality of design and manufacture are both excellent, and the light seems very durable and just plain feels like a solid, reliable product. I spent a lot of time researching what light I wanted this one has exceeded my expectations and I would not hesitate to recommend it. Oh and the cheezy games you can play on the manufacturer's website are fun too. :)
