I typically run two headlights. I use a cycliq fly 12 (Which isn't quite bright enough) and the Bontrager Ion Pro. I have the Ion pro on low, and the amount of lumens it puts out and battery life put this at the top of my favorite headlights. I don't typically run it on high as I have not needed it, but it's nice to know it's there. I think it puts out 400 lumens on low which is higher than other similar headlights and this light is smaller! No proprietary charger needed. Only con is the lens could be diffused to be just a bit wider. An option to add this lens would make it the best you could get.
this light is awesome for my commutes to and from work, lunch wherever along with the Flare RT.... I do have one issue though. I charged up the ion pro with the included cable and it all seemed to work great.... Now the ion pro 1300 just has a SOLID RED light plugged in and not plugged in. It just kinda decided it didnt want to work anymore. I bought this at ACF of Macomb, Michigan. Will be returning! If you buy keep your fingers crossed. I feel like I wasted $150+...
You know you have a good product when you don't even think about it being there when you are using it. The light works great in all conditions and light levels. The head light is a little on the heavy side but worth the trade off. Safety notice.... When I had it paired to my Garmin head unit I downloaded the Garmin software update and it changed the Garmin default settings causing the headlight to come on. This caused the case that I had it in to smoke and almost catch on fire... Yes the light is that bright and powerful!
I've increasingly been using lights during training rides and the new Flare RT makes it that much more of a no-brainer. Compact, lightweight. With diminishing daylight hours I've used the Ion Pro on my helmet for evening trail rides and mounted on my bars on my commuter bike. It's the first compact style light that I feel like I don't "outride".
