As you know, I recently picked up a pair of See.Sense Icon+ lights, and have now ridden a couple of rides with them. Safe to say I love these lights.
They increase my visibility on the road, and give me a sense of safety. Seeing the front light I’ve sort of worked out the responses they have;
- Senses decrease in speed
- Senses drop in ambient light
- Senses increase in ambient light
- Senses tilt to react to hill climb
- Senses lateral tilt for sharp cornering
- Senses a sprint
And any combination of the above. They are ideal daytime running light, as they are bright enough to be seen from a fair distance.
Build wise, they are solid. No movement in the plastic face or back.
Mounting them onto the bike is easy with the supplied straps
, however I’ve noticed a tendency for them to move. While not a major issue, I find it annoying. I mount the rear on the saddle post, which unfortunately means no saddle bag will fit. And the front on the lower head tube. My one criticism would be the button on the units. They are a little tough to turn on. The cover over the button is significantly larger than the button, meaning you some times miss all together. Not a major gripe but it does get annoying.
