Firefox is an Indian performance bicycle brand with a wide range of bicycles and accessories that are urban specific and are built for comfort. We got an opportunity to review the Front LED Battery Light with the BR-26 mounting bracket from Firefox and here’s what we thought.
The Firefox Front LED light is aesthetically very impressive with a sleek black finish, a clear front lens for better beam magnification and a single rubberized ON/OFF switch on the top. The single LED set inside the light’s body throws a bright 150 Lumen beam that illuminates even dark areas and provides enough light for city commuting. Operated on the power of three AAA batteries, the running time is between 4 to 14 hours based on the setting. There are 3 different brightness settings and a blink setting, which has a run time of upto 30 hours.
The battery slot is innovatively placed right behind the LED and can be accessed by twisting the clear lens cover off and removing the light setting. This type of setting ensures that there are no unwanted opening on the side or the base to insert the batteries and also ensures that the light casing is well protected from dust, water, etc.
This light comes with a BR-26 bracket, which is one of the best mounting units from Firefox and makes fixing the light on the bike as easy as possible. The bracket can be securely screwed on to the handlebar and also comes with a couple of rubber shims to be compatible with handlebars of any width.
The Firefox Front Light with Battery is a light that functions as an all rounder, as it is good enough for a city commute, as well as longer rides on dark roads. It’s priced tag of Rs.1510 (As on 21st February 2019) seems justified for its performance. We wish that Firefox would soon come up with a USB rechargeable version of this light too.
