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.
