The Olight x Magicshine RN 120 is a powerful rear red bike light that has a maximum output of 120 lumens in autobrake, which is visible from up to 1500 metres away, or 80 lumens in the highest constant output.
It is a multi-functional lamp that can be used as a red tail light when cycling with the choice pf two mounting options. The included saddle mount hooks over the bars underneath your saddle and can be secured in place with the two tie wraps, or the seat post mount attaches with a silicone strap that is adjustable to fit different diameter posts, which also makes it useful for other applications, such as a pole while camping. The RN 120 has a quick release function that allows it to be twisted on and off either mount securely and easily so that the mount can be left in place and the light can be taken with you.
A high performance LED paired with the textured lens sits in the middle which is also surrounded by a strip of LEDs to produce a soft uniform beam for comfortable use and 260° illumination for enhanced visibility. The RN 120 offers 3 modes of constant, flashing and smart mode which in total have 9 settings of low, mid, high, auto-break, breathe, comet, flash, interactive and day / night. The light is turned on and off by holding the button on the top for 0.5 seconds. Once turned on the settings are cycled through with each press of the button.
In constant mode each press cycles through red outputs of low, mid, high and there is also an automatic activation of a 3 second 120 lumen output when breaking to provide extra visibility to other road users when you slow down providing the battery level is above 20%. To change to flash mode quickly double press the button, and then each press will cycle the 0-80-0 lumen gradual 'breathe' output, the 0-80 lumens 'comet' output, the 40 lumen quick flash and the 120 lumen interactive flash which alternates between the central LED and outer LEDs.
The final smart mode is accessed by another quick double press, which is a mixture of constant and flashing mode that will use the built-in sensor to automatically change the light output depending on the ambient environment. The memory function will remember the last used mode and brightness level.
A built-in rechargeable lithium polymer battery power the RN 120 and is recharged with the included micro USB to USB-A cable. Remove the dust cover from the charging port on the back of the light and plug in the micro USB end of the cable, then plug the other end into a power source such as a computer or the mains using a USB adaptor (not included). The charging indicator under the button will slowly flash red to show charging in progress and turn green once charging is complete after approximately 1 hour when using a recommended output of 5V, 1 A.
The charging indicator is also a battery level indicator and will display the battery level status with a single press of the button while the light is off or when disconnected from charging. A green light indicates 21-100% power, a red light indicates 6-20% power and a flashing red light indicates 0-5% power and that the torch should be charged as soon as possible.
It is the perfect companion for to keep you safe when road cycling, mountain biking and commuting.
