      First, this is very bright light, great for being seen, when it is not shutting off after hitting a bump. This is my second Ion 2 light as the first was replaced under warranty for doing the exact same thing. There seems to be a flaw in the design that causes the light to shut off when going over bumps. Only way to turn it back on again is to hit it with my hand. I have read many other reviews of people having this same problem, just look it up.

        A very bright light, great for being seen when it is not turning off after hitting bumps in the road. Bike store replaced the first one under warranty for shutting off after hitting bumps and the replacement is doing the same thing. This light's design is flawed.

              I purchased this light in the summer months for use later in the year. Once the packaging was removed, it appeared to work fine. When I actually had the chance to use it for a night ride after working late, it was inoperable. Changing batteries had no effect. It's basically just a bad design, and - with so many other headlights on the market - I would not recommend it to anyone. I ended up just throwing it away.

              Comments:

              I originally purchased this light for light-duty mountain biking purposes and was not disappointed. I've found competing brands that make simple "be-seen" commuting lights like this one have weak or simple mounts that move around and don't allow for swiveling. This light not only offered great visibility in the dark on Moscow Mountain, but I never once had to worry about it rocking around over chattery gravel washboards, big rocks, or tree roots. The mount is the most fool-proof design ever, I had it unpackaged and installed in seconds.

                  I have this light on my commuter bike and use it a couple times a week. The flash mode is super bright and very noticeable. There is also a low beam setting to save battery. The clamp is simple to move from bike to bike and most importantly, it stays put when riding! Batteries seem to last forever. I have only changed them once in a year.

                    I really like this light. I use it for commuting. The mount makes it really easy to take on and off my bike, and provides great visibility at night.

                      The included bracket makes it very easy to add and remove from the bike as needed and the button is easy to use with full finger gloves. Rode iwht it in the rain yesterday and it appears to be very waterproof.

                        Worked well for a while, but now it goes out when I hit any bumps in the road and is essentially useless. I hope that there is a warranty available.

                        I need a light that I can count on as I ride in the dark. The first Ion 2 lasted about a week, then started cutting out everytime I hit a bump. My bike store replaced it, the second one lasted about 200k before it started doing the same thing. If you are looking for a light to keep you safe in the dark, this is not it.
