Cyclist Mag Praises "Blindingly Bright" Recon HL1800 Light

Monday, January 11, 2021


Cyclist Magazine posted a review of the new Recon HL1800 headlight on its website, giving it high marks and calling it “a shining example of just how compact you can make a bike light that’s almost as bright as the sun.”

Tester Marc Abbott reported on his experience with the light system, including setup, battery life and performance on the road: “It benefits not only from five brightness modes but also from a satisfyingly lightweight construction which doesn’t sacrifice sturdiness, and an ‘even a child could operate it’ simplicity. The fitment of the Giant Recon HL1800 front light took me less than two minutes.”
While riding, Abbott was particularly impressed with HL1800’s Smart Mode feature, writing: “In simple terms, the beam gets stronger as it gets darker, lengthening the usefulness of the battery—the life of which is displayed with color-coded lights on top of the unit.”
