    The Princeton Tec Push front bike light is a self-contained, 100-lumen light that helps you see and be seen when you're ripping through city streets or roaming country roads.

    • Maxbright LED is extremely bright and efficient; it emits a powerful 100-lumen white beam
    • Focused narrow beam pattern illuminates distant areas; long-throw spotlight is also well suited for night hiking and search and rescue
    • With an easy push of the oversized on/off switch, you quickly toggle through high, low, and don’t-stare-at-it-too-long flash modes
    • Princeton Tec Push light power is augmented by independent light pipes that emit through side windows ensuring over 260° of visibility
    • Proprietary optimized collimator/lens system is highly efficient; all light is gathered from the LED in the form of scattered rays and re-emitted as parallel rays
    • Mounts to handlebar using a race-proven bracket system that maintains a firm, reliable grip on the bar while riding and can be taken off and put on instantly
    • Water resistant to splashing and quick dunkings
    • 3 AAA alkaline batteries included

    Princeton Tec Push Front Bike Light - 2012 Closeout is rated 2.6667 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice light for bikeway illumination Compared to my previous lights intended to illuminate bikeways, this one has more light, a generally good thing. Unfortunately the optical engineer designed an axially symmetric beam. A better design is an intense spot near the top center of the beam (to project farther down the bikeway) with less intense close and lateral patterns to evenly illuminate the path of travel and adjacent areas. But with more light I will still choose this as my primary bike light (with others as secondary or backup; a backup is necessary in case of battery or other failure when miles from home). Surprisingly, the peak intensity of this light does not seem higher than my other lights even with a higher light output (lumens). Instead of a brighter beam, the beam is larger, using that extra light to increase intensity away from the peak. I like the control functions: high, low, strobe (a few dim flashes followed by one extra-bright flash). Also, the side strobe can accompany any of the white light functions or be turned off. I'm disappointed that the side strobe is red; that is the proper color for a rear light but not one in front. Instead the optical designer should have selected white, amber or selective yellow, the choices available for signaling and marking lamps on vehicles. The side strobe is also fairly dim, but choosing the proper color would increase visibility. While this light is pretty compact, with just a little more width it could be redesigned to use AA batteries instead of the AAA size. That would allow over twice the battery life, saving time, money and decreasing the chance of battery failure when underway. Overall I like this PUSH light, as it seems very well made and provides ample light for typical bike paths and roads, but I'm disappointed that with just a little more effort it could be a significantly better design.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk! As other reviewers have noted the mount is horrible. IMHO, the light is just as bad. Mount wouldn't hold the light securely so of course it fell off within 100 yards of the driveway. Then the front (lens) portion of the light broke off. There was apparently only a tiny piece of flimsy plastic holding the two parts together. I have the EOS style bike light as well as a headlamp from Princeton Tec and both are very nice so I'd say this product is an anomaly from a normally reputable company.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright & Well Made I was a little concerned about the mounting bracket based on other reviews, but the bracket was solidly constructed and grips both the bar & the light tightly. The light, in full bright mode, is very bright and the strobe/flasher is attention grabbing. The red lighting on the sides is a nice touch, but I'm not sure I'd rely on them for side visibility.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent bike light for the price! Well, within the first 10 minutes, the light fell off the mount 2x. So, my solution, zip tie the mother to the mount. It fell off after I hit a crack in the sidewalk as well as jumping off the curb while crossing traffic. The light is very bright and works well. Doesn't seem to eat the battery.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible mount. Great light. Really bright light for the price. However, the attachment mount is horrible: light constantly falls off with bumps on the road. After two three falls, the mounting clip broke off and now the light is useless as a bike light.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality clamp I would have enjoyed reviewing this product, but it fell off my bike within 1/2 mile of my second commute with it and fell down a storm drain. As others have noted, the physical clamp to the handlebars is OK, but the clamp for the light allows the light to fall off with a gentle touch or slight breeze. The light wasn't that impressive either on the one night commute I had the opportunity to use it for prior to involuntary storm drain disposal.
