"I've had about 4 of these in various colours, only replaced after crashes or when worn out. Just as good as more expensive Giro helmets, even looks the same (mostly) as the Synthe."

"Actually better than some I have from a famous Italian manufacturer.
OK, first of all, NEOPRENE IS NOT WATERPROOF. It works like a wetsuit - the gloves absorb water and retain heat. So you get to the other end of your ride with warm hands which are wet but not cold.
These are comfortable and good at temperatures 0-10 C. Best thing you can do for wet riding. Go a size up, I normally fit Large but XL was the best size for these."

"As title really. Used them for commutes twice a day and club rides at weekend 3 out of 4 seasons, obviously nothing's totally waterproof but light rain does run off and when they get wet they stay warm, bit like neoprene gloves. Warm and windproof down to about 6 celsius on their own."

 HL-EL530 LED Front Light
HL-EL530 LED Front Light
The EL-500 was the brightest normal battery front LED by a mile, but harnessing the very latest LED technology, Cateye's new EL-530 surpasses this by 50% with no price increase!!!
 

Suitable for night mountain biking?

I need to know if it is up to the shocks and bumps of the trail and if it is suitable for this.

It's all right for commuting but you might find it a bit dim for trail use.

Mounting for HL-EL530

Hello,
I have this front light (HL-EL530) but my bike was stolen and I need a new mounting kit. Can I buy just the mounting?
Thank you.

Yes, the mount is available separately. This is the link to it on Wiggle:

OK on Tortec Ultralite?

Has anyone tried these on the Tortec Ultralite rack? In particular do the rather 'skeletal' bars on the Ultralite support this rather narrow bag OK and does the 'umbrella handle' bottom fixing lock on alright?

Do these come with a cover over the holes for the cleats?

May want to use them with flats so wondered if they come with covers for the cleat holes that can be removed/inserted?

Fixes punctures before you even know you have one! These tubes are filled with Slime which can repeatedly seal punctures up to 3mm. The high tech, environmentally friendly formula inside the tube, keeps working to prevent further punctures.
