Light & Motion's Taz 1200 lights the way whether you are dealing with downtown traffic or shooting off onto a secret little stash of trails. This night-defying handlebar headlight goes on/off with ease and without tools and gives you long run times and an ultra bright light in a lightweight package with a built-in, USB-charged lithium-ion battery. The Taz lets you blaze the trail with pulse, flash, low, medium and high modes for up to 1200 lumens in an ideal beam pattern for cycling. Plus, you get between 1.3 and 18 hours of run time.
Features and Information
Run times: 1.3/3/6/9/18 hours (800 lumens/400 lumens/200 lumens/Pulse/Flash)
Bought this to help with daily commutes in and around Norwood - usually early mornigs and back home at dusk or later.
Very easy to use and charging is great off the USB. Battery life on "flash" mode is realistically 90 minutes before you start to get a warning - but with the battery save tecnology, you can continue to use at near full brightness for at least another 60 minutes.
The beam is well focused and provides good to very good illumination up to about 15 miles an hour. Higher than that I find that I can start to out ride the beam - a little.
Overall, very pleased and plan to buy a couple more as gifts in the Spring for close friends.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
