Onze Mening : DISTRICT 3 REAR - DESCRIPTION
The NEW District 3 rear safety light is bright! Now that may sound like an obvious statement - but until you’ve seen one of these on, in the dark - amongst other lights, reflectives and distractions you won’t quite believe it!
The light came about as a result of the many poor quality rear lights we made our way through during a wet and harsh winter of commuting and night riding. We wanted something that could withstand the harshness of the weather, be ultra visible on our daily commutes as well as work reliably every time we switch it on and stay put on the bike longer than a couple of rides!
So, the District (Red light... get it?!) was born. We’ve tested it extensively over the last 18 months and have found it to tick every box on the list. The most obvious thing came from those commuting - come rain or shine (and much like a bright front light that we are now all accustomed to did when it was first released a few years ago) this powerful tail light really makes drivers of vehicles and other road users so much more aware that you are there. You are given a wider birth when overtaken. Not pushed along in traffic.
The light can be used in conjunction with an existing Hope Vision 2 & 4 front light and battery unit, or as an independent item. Buy the lamp, mounting bracket and splitter cable as one item, or as a complete unit with battery and charger.
The 5 function output takes minimal power from the battery, only affecting burn times by 6-20 minutes depending on mode used.
The neat QR bayonet fixing securely attaches the lamp to the mount (we’ve yet to lose one!) and is quick release enough to allow speedy removal from the bike when leaving it alone. Whether you use the light on the road, or off the road - you’re sure to be safe in the knowledge that you’re doing as much as you can to stay visible from behind and fighting back against ‘close calls’ from impatient motorists and other road users.
