The FWE USB Rechargeable 500 Lumen Front Light is a powerful, well designed and versatile light that won’t break the bank.
FWE, Evans Cycles’ in-house brand, produces an ever-growing range of clothing, lights and other accessories, and this light, new for this season is their most powerful front light, with a 500 lumen output. As a result, it’s a unit designed to light the way in addition to keep you visible to other road users – it ticks both boxes well, pumping out plenty of light in front of you. There’s also a fairly good amount of side visibility.
The light has four different sequences, with three different solid brightnesses and one flashing element. These are controlled through the single button on the unit, which also turns the unit on and off with a longer press, while acting as a battery life indicator.
