The combination of a new Maxbright LED and the Princeton Tec-designed optimized lens collimator maximizes the beam by balancing long throw with localized lighting. Recognizing that different amounts of light are needed for different riding conditions, the EOS is equipped with 3 brightness levels and a blinking mode; further insuring your safety. The use of high grade materials guarantees durability and strong resistance to water, weather and environmental conditions. With handlebar, helmet, and headlamp mounting attachments this is the perfect 3 in 1 light for today's touring enthusiast.

I have had great luck with Princeton Tec headlamps in the past, which is a big reason why I purchased this light for my bike.
The actual unit is a bit on the heavy side for a sturdy head lamp (head strap included), but it's right at home mounted to the handlebars, front rack, fork, or anywhere else on your bike. The narrow beam is super bright, perfect for city commuting or night rides on country roads. Since it doesn't have a wide beam, I wouldn't recommend it for off-road trails where there could be trees and snags, but anything smooth is ideal.
Excellent bang for the buck with this one, just make sure you don't point it directly into your co-worker's eye.
Versatile and Well MadeRating:

For the money, an excellent and versatile light. Can be used as a headlamp as well as a bike light. No need to spend more.
Very good- I probably expect too muchRating:
A customer from South Brunswick, NJ on 11/9/09
It has suficed very well though I wouldn't want to navigate dark roads at high speed relying on it. Unfortunately I can't mount it on my handbars because I have "cheateder brakes" because I sometime ride in cities so I mount it on my helmet which work just fine, maube even better. Its not as bright as I thought but I have to admit my epectation are probably too high, it really does work well as long as you're not trying to push the speed

Tell You What Guys: I'm a Firefighter that has a 13 mile commute each shift on a Cannondale T-500, with all my gear weights 60 to 80 pounds. The first 6 miles is on a very dark back country road with maybe three street lights. The Princeton is absolutely the best light for the money!!! Average speed the first 6 miles 13 mph. The rest of the Commute is on well lit city streets and the flashing mode is great. I work both Fire and EMS so I know what not being seen can do! Just like you I have use all types of lights and found them to be of lesser quality. This light is great and can see very well at my speeds. Very well built and the batteries seem to hold up well on high beamm for the dark portion of the ride. What else can I say.
Great light for the priceRating:
A customer from St. Louis, Mo on 10/27/10
This is a great light! I have used all sorts of lights even more expensive rechargeable lights. But this light seems to do exactly what I need for a great price. I used it on a night ride on a Rail to Trail path trying to catch up to my friend that left the day before me. It was plenty of light to see the trail avenging about 12 MPH. Battery life seem to be really good and the price for what you get is great!
Princeton Tec EOS lightRating:
Matt Bergen on 8/4/11
I bought this light to use in conjunction with a Niterider Minewt on night time gravel road rides & for a small light the Princeton Tec EOS packs a punch! Love the three way mounts that are included (helmet, bike or headband) it has an easy to use button & gets used while camping to, a very nice light for the money I'drecommend it to anyone looking for a secondary light or a first time light buyer for roads or commuting.
GREAT cycling lightRating:
Patrick Clements on 11/9/11
I bought this to use while riding in the dark during winter. It is a perfect product: sturdily built; handsomely outfitted with mounts for helmet, bike, and head; and efficiently engineered, running bright for hours on one set of AAA batteries. I't EXACTLY what I needed and hoped to fin.
A customer from San Diego, CA on 4/3/12
Well constructed, variable settings, glad I purchased it.
Princeton Tec EOS Bike LightRating:
A customer from Chicago, IL USA on 7/9/12
Overall an excellent light. Very compact any yet very bright. Further it has an adjustable light intensity and "flashing" feature that allows the light to be used in many different situations.
Also several convenient and flexible methods of attachment to the bike or helment are provided which further enhances the versatility of the product.
Tough, light weight and functionalRating:
David Fritsch on 11/1/12
This is our second purchase of this brand and model (installed on two bicycles). The first is at least three years old and has seen heavy use in all weather conditions. It is minimally sufficient for use in complete darkness, designed to get you home and be seen on the way. If you know the technique, it is easy to remove from the handlebar clip but would take a little study for a thief to remove.
Great Bike LightRating:
Bruce Burton on 11/10/12
I am very pleased with the Princeton Tec EOS Bike Light. I originally bought one for me and one for my wife. We are both very pleased with the product. It is small, light and the various light settings are appropriate to our cycling needs. In addition, the various mounting alternatives supplied with the light provide a great deal of flexibility in use. I did have one negative experience with the light. I mounted it on my bike and because it is physically so small and light, I just left it mounted on the bike for many weeks. Unfortunately, the light either fell or was knocked off during one of my rides (I hope it found a good home). Despite this experience, I liked the light so much that I bought a new one and this time only mount it on the bike when I expect to use it.
