The Olight x Magicshine RN 180 TL is a rear red bike light that offers a maximum output of 180 lumens in the auto brake mode or a constant maximum output of 125 lumens, which provides a visibility angle of 260° emitted from the back and is visible by other road users from up to 2,000 metres away.
It is a multi-functional lamp that can be used as a red tail light when cycling with the choice of 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 180 TL 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 COB LED paired with the transparent optical lens produces a soft uniform beam for comfortable use and enhanced visibility. The RN 180 TL offers 3 modes of constant, flashing and smart mode which in total have 10 settings of low, mid, high, auto-break, breathe, comet, flash, interactive, day and 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 180 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 0-125-0 lumen gradual 'breathe' output, the 125-0 lumens 'comet' output, the 0-125 lumen quick flash and the 125 lumen interactive flash.
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. The autobrake 180 lumens output will also activate in both flash and smart modes.
The RN180 TL has a built-in 800 mAh rechargeable lithium polymer battery and comes supplied with a micro USB to USB-A cable for charging. Remove the dust cover from the charging port on the end 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 go red to show charging in progress and turn green once charging is complete.
The charging indicator will also display the battery level status with a single press of the button while the light is off.
It is the perfect companion for to keep you safe when road cycling, mountain biking and commuting.
