Cateye Uno

Cateye just announced the availability of their new “Uno” headlight. This looks like a fantastic little LED light that should make a great backup or “be seen” light. Specs as follows:

  • Flashing and constant modes
  • 60  hours run time in flashing mode
  • 15 hours run time in constant mode
  • Runs on 1 AA battery (included)
  • Water resistant
  • 400 Candlepower

Prior to the Uno coming out, my favorite backup headlight was the Cateye EL-410. The Uno is over twice as bright and runs on one AA battery instead of the EL-410’s three AAA batteries. Gotta’ love the ever-greater efficiency we’re seeing with modern LED emitters.

    Indeed. And the other great thing about improved technology is that existing tech has to lower its price to compete – so everyone wins – those who want the high end and those who haven’t got the money to spend

    This looks sturdier than mine. Might have to check it out. Is it available in the US yet? couldnt find the price for it, Im assuming 40-50$USD>??
    The current cat-eye I have is pretty nice and has some of these features but doesn’t have the best grip and often tilts upwards, a bit too often and quite annoying.

    Went to their website and it is so cute they make this description: “…the perfect light for every day around-town commuting or for an emergency light for when you stay late at the café.” How they know I love cafes???? ;)
