Gear Review - Cygolite Mitycross 350

Great headlight, good price, just enough lumens to let you ride without fear. This hacky-sack sized light has two high-intensity LEDs that cross beams to open the beam pattern up without allowing the center to darken. The weight is negligible, and even the battery pack is fairly light. The headlamp is not waterproof, but seems like it would be fine in the rain, just not in the lake. The battery pack charges in about 4 hours with a special charger (included).


The light can be mounted on handlebars (with the provided clip)or on a helmet (so you can actually see where you look, not just where your bike is pointed). The battery can be mounted to the helmet, bike frame, or stuffed in a pack using the included extension cord. On the bright setting this thing will render you unable to see in the dark for an hour - and unfortunately it turns on AUTOMATICALLY upon being connected to the battery - be warned. Bright setting is about 350 lumens (claimed), and is rated to last about 4 hours. I've ridden at night on roads and trails by the medium setting, which is supposed to last about 8 or 9 hours, and that was plenty of light. The helmet mount is solid, the construction feels top-notch, and for the price/brightness/weight, you can't do much better.
