This looks like a commuter bike light — and it is. But with a high mode that puts out 1200 lumens, the Taz 1200 is more than capable of taking you on trails far from any streetlights.
The so-called low mode with 300 lumens is brighter than the high mode on most commuter bike lights — and plenty bright enough for most city riding.
Suburban commuters will like the medium mode, for confidently navigating neighborhoods with blind spots and where lighting is spotty.
The Taz 1200 mounts to your bike handlebars, or to your helmet with the optional Light and Motion Helmet Mount (Seca/Vega/Stella).
