The Bontrager Ion Pro RT packs incredible light output into a compact design.
Roads? Trails? Both are perfect for the Ion Pro RT! 1300 lumens cut through the night, making technical trails easy to navigate, even at speed. Fast descents on the road need enough output to see potholes and curves well, and the Ion Pro's CREE LED elements provide outstanding clarity. The Ion Pro's handlebar bracket easily adjusts for different bar diameters up to 35mm. Have a Bontrager Blendr mount on your stem? The Ion Pro installs on that, too. The "RT" in the name indicates this light can be controlled with a Garmin computer or Bontrager ANT+ device (sold separately). It will even indicate remaining battery charge on a Garmin computer. Cool, huh? Run time at 1300 lumens is 1.5 hours, while a lower output of 800 lumens can run up to 3 hours. Both settings might get you mistaken for a baseball stadium, but sometimes that's what the trails demand! The Ion Pro's 400 lumen setting does the job nicely for road navigation, and offers a 6 hour (!!) run time. Daylight-visible flash modes get the attention of drivers up to 2km away and can run up to 22 hours. The on/off button needs 2 clicks to turn on; helpful if the light is boucing around inside a duffle bag awaiting a night commute. The on/off button also displays charge status in color, making run time much less of a mystery.
A micro USB cable and tool-free handlebar bracket are included with the purchase of this light.
The Bontrager Flare R City rear light is pretty small in your hand, weighing perhaps two ounces. But the power in it is astounding! Installation on a seatpost is tool-free and takes only a few seconds with the elastomer strap. A one-button control allows the user to select one of four modes -flash or steady- to get a driver's attention. With a light output of up to 35 lumens, the Bontrager Flare R City can be seen up to 400 meters away in broad daylight! The flash it produces isn't a boring on-off-on-off, but a jumpy pattern that gets a driver's attention quickly; very useful when it needs to compete with neon advertising and crosswalk signals. Focused optics throw light in a 120 degree angle, keeping the cyclist obvious to drivers that may not be directly behind them. When light conditions change in urban riding situations during the day, the Bontrager Flare R City responds with automatic brightness adjustment. There's even a charge indicator light to avoid surprises when venturing out. If the charge drops below 5%, the Flare R City self-adjusts to a lower output, so as to allow a cyclist to arrive home safely from a long ride.- Day flash: 35LM-8hrs. -Night flash: 35LM-16hrs. Day steady 20LM-3hrs. Night steady 2LM-20hrs.
The Bontrager Flare R City comes with a Quick Connect bracket and micro-USB charging cable.
