Strongest and brightest rear light for training?

Which tyres for Paris-Roubaix? Whose time trial bike is fastest? Suspension mountain bikes or singlespeeders? Talk equipment here.

I also like how the red zone 4 doubles as a torch when you keep it on solid state and hold it in your hand. I use it as a reading light to save electricity. Makes you feel like your in Red October! lol!

So far you've countered each post with a response about the RZ4.

Sounds like you've already made up your mind.

DR always has his mind made up - he is just trying to convince you that if you don't agree with him then you are wrong. Remember, he can hang with the pros on his heavy bamboo bike so he must be awesome and everything he says must be correct. :D

If they have one problem it's that the way the light disassembles to replace the batteries isn't as robust as it could be, I've had two 'let go', leaving the rear part attached to the clamp on my seatpost.

Admittedly both cases were on my MTB, so it's wholly probable that the light suffered a blow from a rock or stick which encouraged it to let go - one was noticed to be AWOL shortly after a crash which left my bike fully submerged in a muddy puddle (I barely kept my head above water):D


Ditto...on road bike over a series of bumps: light disassembled itself (showing great initiative!). I use clear tape to maintain integrity. However no complaints on the quality/quantity of light broadcast.

I have a couple of these that I use on both bikes (had intended to use both on each bike and switch over as necessary but having used the lights now, I don' thtink I need to)

I returned my Redzone to Niteflux late Sept under warranty. Since then I have tried to contact them to check the progress of the claim but the phone number listed on there website is disconnected and they won't return my emails ?
Anyone know if they are still in business ?

:confused:I sent the return via registered post and it was signed for at the receiving end

Over a year of daily use for me and still going strong. I use it as a reading light often even. Its like your reading inside a giant tomato.

I was completely happy with it as well, it was the only light I've found that looks like it could make it through a wet season up here. That's what really annoys me, all the other cheap blinky-blinky lights fails as soon as the rain gets heavy, and lets face it that is when you need it most. My redzone was used every day for about six months, then started playing up one night while charging, soon after that I was unable to turn it on at all. So I raised a warranty claim, sent it back, and well.....the rest is history.....no replies to my emails, phone number listed on their site and yellow pages disconnected ? WTF ?
