Knog Blinder 1300 front light

Review after 2 weeks. A well designed handsome unit. Easy to operate. Easy to attach to bike (though the tough rubber strap for over / under the handlebar mount is a bit of a fiddle to attach the light). Easy to check battery status. Quick and easy to charge (with own USB C).
Performance: a good reasonable wide spread of light. But though 1300 lumens the light quality is a bit warm/yellow. In the dark I still need another (whiter beam) light above 30km/hr to light up clearly an area immediately in front of me (those menacing potholes). Otherwise at slower speeds it’s fine and safe. I love how it’s adjustable ie fore/ aft in its respective mounts. I wish it was a whiter beam with maybe up to 1600 lumens max output even for road use. Also maybe with a lanyard, just in case.

Blinder is a ripper

Compact, but how is it so powerful. We night MTB, so is perfect on the helmet. Normally run at 900 so lasts a bit longer. Get 1.5hrs on full, and our ride is normally just under 2.
Knog have nailed it.

Very bright easy to use. Light did fall out of Mount over a small bump. Need to keep adjusting aim. The mount slips on the handlebar.

If you point this light at a tweaker they will run

They will immediately run. It is so bright. Only complaint is it gets hot to the touch at full brightness.

Bright light for night

Blindingly bright. Easy to fit and adjust.

'light up the night and demand attention during the day with Blinder 1300.'

It's Simply The Best Front Light In Its Class

Set apart by considered design and innovative features.

Rock-Solid Mounting Options

Includes two seperate mounts; a tough and flexible rubber handlebar mount that fits diameters from 22.2mm to 35mm, and a Go-Pro style mount to mount the light below your computer or to a compatible helmet mount.

Industry Leading Battery Technology

Blinder 1300 is powered by a 21700 3.7V lithium ion battery. This technology provides best-in-class power-to-weight ratio, meaning you get to enjoy a more compact design with longer runtimes than most other lights in this category.

Road Optimised Beam Optics

An innovative and considered design combines three wide beam optics with three narrow beam optics to provide high quality illumination for up to 120 m. At the optimum angle of 23 degrees, you get more light where you want it.

Intelligent Silicone Button

An LED light around Blinder's soft touch silicone button allows you to quickly see remaining charge and the charging status. A quick press of the button when it's off shows you remaining charge, with green being 100-50% charge remaining, yellow 50-25%, and red under 25%. When charging, a yellow flash indicates the light is being charged, which turns green when full.
