Product Review: Princeton Tec Swerve November 24, 2009
PrincetonTec Swerve red blinky
I've been running the Princeton Tec Swerve rear flashing light since they turned the sun off at 4:30 several weeks ago and so far I am impressed.
"But it's just a rear flasher - how impressed could you be!?", you say.
"Pretty", I say.
Unlike the basic $10 flasher, the Swerve has an easy to reach toggle switch right on the front of the light. No more fumbling with a tiny switch and a gloved hand. The two high powered (.5w) LED's are bright and have 180o visibility. Two AAA batteries will run this puppy for 70 hours. Use rechargeables if you want - if you have a solar charger, you're off the grid. Feel me?
My favorite thing about this light is how it mounts. No more plastic clamps and rubber shims if you're running the Swerve. A big o-ring securely wraps this light around any size seatpost. It also has a clip for monting on a bag or rear pocket.
Princeton Tec Swerve. Safety with Style.
