Dropping a third from its original £300 price brings Cateye’s impressive triple shot light into our test ballpark. The lamp units holds three high power LED’s, but over half of it’s bulk comprises of a myriad of cooling fins, that keeps the light very cool in use. A separate bar bungee mounted switch unit lacks a dim function but with over three hours of burn time, you get a very usable run time so it’s not all bad news. There is no facility for helmet lighting as standard; you will need the company’s Double Shot for that.
The three LED’s do an impressive job of illuminating the trail. An incredibly bright central beam offers a good view of the distance, with the twin flood lenses lighting plenty of the surrounding fauna but, despite the drop in price, it still comes up a little short on features.
