“The Cateye EL530 should be considered as the base...”

Written on: 16/03/2010 by METHUSALA (16 reviews written)

The Cateye EL530 should be considered as the base level for bike front lights.

The centre spot is very bright - I angle this down at the road about six metres in front of me. A pool of weak light is cast around widely as well - it's good for giving an all round view (a fairly dim one, but sufficient to see what you need to) showing the edges of the road, hedges in country lanes, and the road and lie of the land ahead when set as I have it.

It gives a good view of the road surface ahead so… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/03/2009 by moultoneer (1 review written)

I've used this Cateye el530 light for night riding over the winter months and can honestly say that it's not up to the job as a main light for dark lane use.It's okay if you are travelling at very slow speeds but if you want to go fast down unlit country lanes safety issues arise when using the cateye.The main problem is the beam....it has a very bright centre spot which lights up a very limited area on the road surrounded by a flood beam which isn't much use at all.Cateye would have done… Read Full Review

After six months the Cateye light fell off my bike, and stopped working. There does not seem to be any way to mend it, (I think the LED blew)… Read Full Review

“I bought this light for commuting because I wanted...”

Written on: 18/03/2008 by MWallace (1 review written)

I bought this light for commuting because I wanted something really bright. It delivers on brightness - when it works - but spectacularly fails in most other areas, notably the quality of the mounting system and the reliability of the light. First, I found the mounting bracket supplied incredibly difficult to fit tightly to my handlebar - the light would tilt downwards every hundred yards or so, making for a very frustrating commute! The mounting system on the light body itself is incredibly… Read Full Review
