Lighting Tech - Check Out the Comet!
REVIEW DATE: 26 Feb, 2013
RRP: 79.90
Retailer(s): Moon stockists nationwide

Blown away would be an understatement on what we have experienced with using the all new "Comet" lights from MOON.  Pioneering new LED technology called chipped LED, the Comets 4cm long lighting strips project what can only be summed up as an incredible amount of light.  MOON say the advantage with the LED chipped strip over LED diodes is that the strip creates a glow around the rider therefore enlarging the visible object on the road.

Powered by USB rechargeable cells keeping the Comets at the ready has been simple and reassuring that your visibility is always maxed out and not having to purchase throw away batteries has been liberating.

The quick fit tool-less mounting system is another winner.  Using the same mounting system as the popular GEM series from MOON is simple and allows the lights to be removed or fitted within seconds and on any part of the bike  We found that fitting the rear Comet vertically down the seat post and the front on the right side fork blade to be aesthetically please to those wishing for a clean appearance on the bike whilst delivering a clean handlebar zone.  We tested out the limits of the brackets on bladed forks and integrated seat mast frames and the rubber tension strap handled everything we could find from Cervelo to LOOK to Giant and Specialized.

Flicking from function to function is made simple with the sealed sensor button and scrolling up to an unbelievable 100 lumens only takes three pushes and with six hour run times in between charges we have been getting in several rides without charging.  Illuminated recharge symbols provide ample warning that an upcoming recharge will be necessary before the next ride.

Currently lighting up dealers walls all over the country, the MOON Comet may be the best purchase you make as we head toward autumn.
