Cateye TL-LD570 Reflex Auto Light : Preview

A new light was recently released, the Reflex Auto TL-LD570, from Cateye. What is so unique about the light? It turns itself on and off utilizing optic and motion sensors.  If this system really works, I’ll save myself a handful of batteries per year by leaving my light on at night when I leave the bike.  My only concern about this light is that it uses darkness to help detect when the light goes on, personally I like to run my light all the time.

We have a test light on the way for review, will report back once I have more details.

The Reflex Auto tail light has both optic and motion sensors to determine when to automatically activate the light.  When darkness and motion are detected the light turns on instantly!

The combination of active and passive safety help provide even more visibility.  The active safety refers to our standard tail light technology, perfected over years of development.  The passive safety component refers to our outstanding CPSC reflector design that has exceeded highest governmental standards for many years.

The 5 super-bright modes, over 180 degrees of visibility, and various mount options will help you stand out from the crowd and guarantee you’ll be noticed at night! – Cateye.com
