Gear Review - Light and Motion Solite 250EX

Light & Motion Solite 250EX

From the Adventure Cycling Association
Daylight savings ends in a little over a week, and that's a sad day indeed for cyclists hoping snag a few hours in the saddle after the 9-5 grind. If you're looking for a light to extend your ride time, or perhaps keep yourself visible for those dark commutes to and from the office, the Solite 250EX from Light & Motion is a solid option worth checking out.
This light runs off a portable battery pack that is micro USB rechargeable. It takes a good eight hours to top it off, and at full charge, the Solite 250EX puts out 250 lumens for up to four hours. If you want to burn through the battery at a slower pace, there are some more economical runtime options of 8 hours at 125 lumens and 30 hours at 50 lumens. If you take this along on a camping trip, there is also a 7-lumen setting more at the Adventure Cycling site...

Carfree American is a huge fan of the Adventure Cycling Association. When we first started to bicycle for transportation...14 years ago, Adventure Cycling was, and still is,  the go to site for: gears reviews, how-to articles, types of bikes to ride, feature travel essays, and much more that promoted adventure cycling and it all translated well into transportational cycling, which, if you commute you are a adventure cycling guru!

You can also get a FREE COPY of Adventure Cycling Magazine, which is really fun and interesting!!!

  1. Any ideas on how this would perform on an overnight run? Does the bulk of the battery pack bounce?

  2. ome will make you laugh while others will make you feel alone and small because of the remote locations photographed.
