Cannondale Foresite Plus

Now that longer days are here you may not need a really powerful light to get you home from work or school or to guide you on that epic night ride, but you still may occasionally need something to assist you after the sun goes down. 

That's where the Cannondale Foresite Plus comes in handy. It packs away into the smallest of spaces but can be pulled out and mounted to your handlebar in seconds. What's more, it has 5 powerful LED's that provide both a remarkable amount of light for it's size and a very wide beam of light so you have decent peripheral illumination as well. 

Run time of the light is reported to be 20 hrs and you just need to replace 4 aaa batteries to start the clock on run time over. 

All this for just $35. Not bad - bike light value had come a really long way in a relatively short amount of time.
