Why You Want:You’re looking to be seen and need a no frills convenient package of a front headlamp and a rear taillight.
Pros: Relatively inexpensive combo light set which includes a bright LED headlight and taillight. The headlight uses two Nichea LEDs and the rear taillight uses 7 smaller LEDS. Both work in steady and flash modes, the rear also features a steady strobe. The lights have intergrated silicone mounting brackets that make them easy to install and also feature rack compatible.
Cons: At this price point, there aren’t many bells and whistles to be expected. Though AAA batteries are included, they’re disposable and not li-ion like similarly priced lights.
RoadBikeReview Take: For the commuter looking for a no frills easy to install and maintain set of commuter lights, the Serfas CP-300 combo should suffice. The integrated silicone mounting brackets make it a cinch to mount to your handlebar, seat posts, or rack. To keep costs down, the lights do run off standard AAA batteries, which is easy enough to service, but there are comparable options available with built in batteries that recharge via USB. A single button on each light controls on/off and switches between the the modes.
As a “To be seen” light, this combo of lights will fit the bill. If you’re commute is mainly on roads lit by streetlights and you want to be seen by traffic the Serfas CP-300 combo works fine. The passive side visibility could be improved, but at this price point, this is to be expected.
