PDW Spaceship/Radbot £35 www.paligap.cc

The front lamp uses a single LED and lens to create a bright, tight beam with which it’s possible to navigate pretty well even without street lighting. You need a coin to insert the two AA batteries and there are flash and steady modes (expect 30-60 hours’ run time); the blue glow on top of the light is unnecessary though. The Radbot 500 rear light is unusual in that it features a large reflector below the main LED, which means it’s on even when it’s off; in use it pumps out 500 milliwatts of light. Comes with rack, seatpost and seatstay mounts, and backpack clip. MC

PROS solid feel, Radbot design
CONS that blue glow on Spaceship
