Pave Your Path.
Portland Design Works' Pathfinder USB Headlight features Vertical Cutoff Beam technology, providing 200 lumens of concentrated light onto the ground directly ahead so you can safely define the best path from A to B. In addition to the primary Vertical Cutoff Beam, there are secondary beams that are designed to enhance your visibility, making it easier for oncoming traffic and fellow cyclists to spot you. To ensure reliable, year-round use, the Pathfinder USB Headlight features rugged, all-weather construction. Four modes of illumination - steady low, steady high, daytime flash, and pulse - facilitate environmental adaptability. The super bright daytime flash mode is great for situations in which you might benefit from enhanced visibility when the sun is still high in the sky, such as narrow road shoulders or new routes. A battery level indicator on the top side of the light makes it easy to keep it charged. While charging, the indicator flashes green to signify successful charging is underway.

Light Type: Rechargeable
I use the light for daytime riding in flash mode. It is very bright and visible even in bright sunlight. The battery lasts for quite some time. I have done as many as 5 rides, 3 hour long, between charges. Even after those rides the indicators show that there was charge left. It is larger than my previous headlight, but it is better design over all. I have had very good luck with Portland Design Works products, and this one simply confirms my faith in the quality of the company.
