  • PRINCETON TEC Swerve Bike Taillight

    Meet Swerve: a superior tail light for your bike from Princeton Tec.

    Features/Benefits:

    • Uses two high-powered LEDs - a combination of a diffused lens and a collimated focused lens creates a very bright 180° beam pattern that alternates between a wider beam and a narrow beam
    • Because the eye must juggle the wide and narrow beams it doesn't get a chance to relax, resulting in a very high level of visibility
    • Toggle switch extends beyond the perimeter of the light and allows for easy operation while riding
    • Toggle switch is on a pivot: off is the middle position, down is a flash pattern, up is for steady light
    • Mounting options: handle bar, seat post, seat stay, and fork mounts are included
    • Built-in clip allows for attachment to your helmet, pack, or messenger bag
    • Requires 2 AAA batteries (included)

    Cons

    • Not rechargable

    Best Uses

    Comments about PRINCETON TEC Swerve Bike Taillight:

    This is the third light I bought for commuting at night. The other two broke easily and were not as bright. I love that it has an easy to turn on switch. I can turn it on as it gets dark or turn it off to conserve the batteries. It is very durable and has help up to trails, crashes, and frequest removal from the bike. I bought a second because I thnk you should at least have 2 rear lights on your bike for riding back roads at night. If it were rechargable it would be the best light in the world.

    Poor Design

    Pros

    • Great visibility

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Rear safety light

      Comments about PRINCETON TEC Swerve Bike Taillight:

      Would be a great light except the unit comes apart too easily. This happened to me twice on a rough road on my road bike and I recovered the pieces but the third time I did not hear it fall, so I have half a light now.

      No light now

      • Bright
      • Great visibility

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Rear safety light

        Comments about PRINCETON TEC Swerve Bike Taillight:

        The light worked well. Very visible and bright as I have been told by others behind me. HOWEVER, this light was mounted to my road bike. After a couple of months the light portion and batteries separated from base. Now I have no light. Just a useless base mounted on my bike. It wasn't like I had just changed the batteries or messed with it in any way. Very disappointed loosing this light. Maybe wrap a rubber band around the light and base?

        Good light with a poor mounting system

        By Gerry

        from NJ

        About Me Avid Cyclist

        Pros

        • Different settings
        • Great visibility

        Cons

        • Poor Mounting Hardware

        Best Uses

        • Rear safety light

        Comments about PRINCETON TEC Swerve Bike Taillight:

        The light itself is fine, has 3 different settings, is very bright and much larger than I am used to but willing to trade a bit of extra weight for safety. The rubber band used to mount it to different parts of the frame snapped within a week. I'm holding it on with zip ties which are doing the job but would not recommend buying this until the manufacturer provides more reliable, resilient mounting bands.

          Comments about PRINCETON TEC Swerve Bike Taillight:

          I was looking for a bright light that could be securely mounted on the rear stay that was reasonably priced. This one met all the requirements I was looking for. At first the mount appeared to be be a little cumbersome, but it is secure and very bright.
