Describing this light as bright is a serious understatement. Using new COB technology, Blinder produces a punchy 100 lumens that will ensure you're seen and safe in all light conditions.
It features a grid pattern that makes this Blinder one of Knog's most individual lights ever. The graphic flash pattern has 8 different modes and is also available as a front light to make a unique pair.
The Blinder has integrated USB recharging, is 100% waterproof and has a whopping 60 hour run-time when using eco flash mode.
No charging cable is required for your Blinder, its integrated USB plugs directly into USB ports. It has a charge time of 4 hours. When your Blinder is running low on battery, a red led will light up next to the button. This ring will turn green and then turn off once the Blinder is fully charged and ready to go.
Blinder lights comes with a tool-less removable silicone strap for bars and seat posts 22-32mm in diameter. A large strap is also provided that will fit tubes and head tube profiles with a circumference of up to 200mm. Knog's tool-less mounting system makes attaching your light incredibly simple and using silicone straps means there'll be no chance of damaging your bike's frame or beloved paint job.
Removing your Blinder for charging or security purposes is a doddle with our handy clasp removal system. Strong enough to hold your light firmly in place when in use and big enough to use even when wearing gloves in colder conditions, this is a king amongst clasps.
Producing 100 lumens of light output makes this Blinder a seriously bright option for any cyclist. Efficient Chip on Board (COB) LEDs provide maximum brightness level for up to 90% of the battery burn time.

I previously posted a very positive review of this product. Within the last few weeks, my riding partner has noticed that my rear light, when activated, only stays on for about 10 minutes and then dies. I have always always made sure this light was fully charged before every ride, and that the charge light was "green." I have had to scrap this light, and buy another. It is a shame, because I liked everything about this light: the design of the strap, the lumens produced, and the ease of operation. I can't say that you or anyone else will experience this problem, but disregard my prior positive review.
I purchased this item to replace a competitors rear light as the rechargeable battery was not holding charge. I was taken by the run time advertised for this item and after use I am disappointed in the actual time the charge lasts. I have tried several modes and seemingly cannot get more than 2.5 hours. I personally consider the engineering/design to be rather strange. When placed in a USB slot (the only means of charging) the indicator light is on the bottom and facing the computer, requiring one to either contort your neck and head or use a mirror to determine if the light has gone from red to green. Knog needs to seriously re-engineer this product.
Every time I have to share the road with cars - day or night, I make sure my rear Knog Blinder is activated. It is very, very bright and definitely adds to my visibility (and hopefully safety) on the road. The Knog comes with three different sized bands, and has a very smartly designed clip that allows easy installation and removal. I feel safer on the road with this light.
My riding partner has this light so I can see the distance that it is useful. It stays charged for several rides at low blink. Quite impressive. Easy to charge. I have a charging station with 10 USB holes that is perfect for all our lights and GPS. Knog and otherwise.
