Having a daughter who is addicted to her bicycle, safety equipment is usually on my mind - even though she hardly ever uses any. I'm not scared of little bumps, bruises or scrapes. I am scared, however, of traffic. Bee, like most 8-year-old children, is not always attentive of her
surroundings and if I can make her stand out to drivers, I do it.
Chris Evan Industries sent me their Night ProVision High Powered Rear Bike Light. Since a rear bike light is something that Bee has been missing on her bicycle, I was all for it.
Upon arrival, it was very small and I could practically wear it on my finger as an enlarged piece of children's costume jewelry. However, do not let its size mislead you. This thing is bright! And the best part? No batteries required! That's right. You can charge this little sucker with a USB cable.
Bee was somewhat disappointed with the black color as we attached it to the back, right under her seat - her bicycle being purple and pink and all. However, I pointed out that it would fit into the Monster High theme she has going in her life right now. She quickly changed her tune from disappointment to joy.
Attaching it under the seat was a little difficult as my hands are big, but the process itself is simple enough and if you have smaller hands, it should be a breeze. It also did a wonderful job at staying in place as Bee rode her bike up and down the street and sidewalks. I have not had to charge the light yet, so I cannot comment as to how long it lasts, but it only takes 2.5 hours to obtain a full charge.
This is a good product for any bicycle rider (or mother of one) who wants to make sure they are seen by drivers.
Full disclosure: I was sent this product free of charge and received compensation in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
