"For me these are just that bit better than top level Shimano. A more modulated feel and slightly more secure at stopping especially in the damp. Not had them long enough to comment on durability."

 Cateye Volt 700 RC Front
Cateye Volt 700 RC Front
The Volt 700 delivers a massive 800 lumen pulse on daytime flash mode and happily runs at a constant 700 lumen output for 2 hrs. The neat battery is safely interchangeable if you need to extend the run time.
 

Cycle paths and the Demon Dirt!

Will this be good enough to spot doggie door, on pitch black coastal cycle paths? Or should I go with the 1200? Thnx

Should be at highest setting, although it depends on how fast and how close to the cliff edge!

I'm training in particular for a cycle challenge across Europe upto what % gradient does the unit simulate and is this displayed directly

Or do I have to interprit the power levels for climb gradients
If there is a better trainer what would you recomend.
Top 250 Contributor
Top 250 Contributor
Using the Elite trainer app you can create route maps that simulate gradients on the route. These are from what I can figure from usage not exactly as the actual route but I suspect averaged although the % climb does vary on hills. I have found no limit to the % as a route over Honister has shown. It translates this on the trainer to an increase in power needed to keep moving. Whether this is accurate I have no meansof telling but it is certainly tough. Obviously being a trainer you have to pedal downhill and compete against the resistance of the trainer even when it shows 0 power.
