REVIEW : Knog Blinder Road 3



“Never before has there been a Blinder Light so technically superior and bright. Loaded with a mammoth 300 lumens of light, all from a lightweight 105g, 100% waterproof, USB rechargeable, integrated silicone package; Blinder Road 3 was not designed for the faint hearted.” Knog Website.

We had the pleasure of receiving the latest Knog Blinder Road 3 light at Boneshaker HQ last week. Having been really impressed with the little Knog Blinder 1 and now using them continuously for my daily commute, I was really excited to try this one out. And so having stepped off the train on a wet, gloomy Christmas Eve in Barnstaple in North Devon, the opportunity presented itself; I had an hour’s cycle ahead of me to reach the cottage I was to be staying in over Christmas. I knew that there was a great cycle path that I could take called the Tarka Trail, but that it is unlit for the most part. On went the Road 3 light and BOOM, there was the path, lit up fantastically ahead of me! This light has all sorts of settings and I got to try them all out. On returning to the main road, i flipped it on to the flashing mode and felt confident, despite the very heavy rain, that it wouldn’t struggle in the wet. Like the Blinder 1 lights, it is remarkably easy to attach and take off most bike bars and is a really slick-looking bit of kit. I have read a few comments about it coming off people’s bars quite easily, but I didn’t find this to be the case despite the rough bits of track that I encountered. Well impressive and I’m now really looking forward to the next night ride out with it 🙂 www.knog.com.au
