The Switchback 1 is one of three bike and helmet mountable lights made by Princeton Tec. It’s designed to be the smallest and most powerful LED secondary helmet light on the market and is powered by rapidly charging lithium batteries. Switchback 1 offers up to 10 hours of burn time (4.5 hours on high setting) in a lightweight, compact format that’s both durable and water resistant. It’s narrow beam is great for seeing great distances, but won’t completely light you’re way on dark trails. So use it as an emergency light, or on your helmet in addition to a bar-mounted light. It comes packaged with helmet and handlebar mounts, car and wall chargers and a international adapter for use outside of the country. $199 www.princetontec.com
