I have two pairs of these lights. They works fine and looks great, but they don't last long. Eventually the road vibrations will break them.
Awesome light set! Don’t hesitate to purchase.
The lights are on point and I love how you have different settings. Makes night ride safer
Good looking lights They're strong and bright.
Unfortuantely one of them broke on my first ride. It had a little scuff on it so something hit it but I don't feel it should have broke that easily? Really neat idea with the motion detection but i'd like to see it be a bit more durable considering it's application.
Look great work good.
I showed these lights off and my friends were like those are bad asssssssss, where you get those?
Love my lights. It keeps me more visible and it makes my board look more slick..
Easy to install and use it. Would definitely buy it again.
The fact that you can take them off in the day and put them on only at night is clutch. Definitely would buy the handle bar to prevent scraping them when picking your board up.
Love the brake lights. Unfortunately one quit working the first night. Luckily the other one is good and bright and works consistently so far.
These are great! They stay on well, i went over massive amount of bumps and gaps and they stayed on very well. Just screw them on tight! And charge them, and theyre good to go. Very bright and they look b@dA$$
They work great I leave them on auto and it works great and they are bright can be seen well at night or during the day and they look cool mounted on the board thank you guys now my board is complete
One of the lights stopped working just 6 days after use
Bought two sets of two and after only 3 months 1 light still works. The method of keeping them on is shotty at best due to how easy the washer and screw loosen and fall off. The only good thing I can say about them is they're bright for the few weeks they'll work.
I’ve gotta say I’m a little disappointed. I saw a couple of reviews saying that theirs stopped working after a little while, and unfortunately the exact same thing happened to me. One of mine just randomly stopped working after about only a few weeks of light riding, would not turn on or anything and worst of all it would not take a charge either. This is unfortunate because the other one seems to be working okay but I don’t know why this is happening to people. Also side note- I don’t really think they are that bright if I’m being honest.
Looks amazing on my scooter
Fast delivery easy to assemble and looks great
One of the lights quit working after just a couple of days, it also fell off the board the first ride, the whole enclosure, not just the screw off top part???Hopefully, I can get it replaced!
Great build quality on these little lights, bright enough for pedestrians, cyclists and hopefully cars?
Only issue is the accelerometer is not the most accurate I've ever seen, get a few false positives (brake lights even though I'm not breaking).
Otherwise great product!
These lights are awesome! 3 modes, super easy to install and most importantly makes it safer to ride at night. I love riding at night since there's less traffic. The lights are super bright and visible. There's a strobe, slow blink and an always on mode. I was a little skeptical since some people said they fall off. Took it on many rides short and long and never had a problem. Thanks Backfire!
Service and lights, including shipping, it’s great !!!!
Love these lights
The light works well and it is a nice feature that people behind me can see that I am slowing down. The issue is that one of the lights would not screw down tight and fall of when it I ride. And now I only have one light.
Amazing lights. I have seen some negative reviews of this and honestly I don't know why. I have had no problems with it whatsoever. The automatic mode works amazing, the brake lights come on right when I slow down. At night they are very bright and makes it very visible. Manual mode also works great to get flashing lights when needed for extra visibility. Great product, would 10/10 reccomend.
Commute early in the morning, lights work great. Only issue I have, is when in automatic mode it flashes unpredictable.
I just got them in the next day to stop working I already got a hold of tech support sent them a video and order number . they said they both sent me another pair but I haven't heard anything from them since and that was about 3 days ago
Don't work properly
There very well built . provides excellent light. The brake sinceing tech is an added saftey measure I like.
they are super bright. easy install. wish they had better sensitivity but overall very good
Okay, so these are good but not great. If you do buy one of these or the pair, make sure you get some loctite on the bolts holding the socket you screw the light into to the brackets mounted to the board. I nearly lost one when it came undone, got another bolt and washer, slather some loctite on there, and now I don't have to worry I might lose one.
lost a light do while riding the entire light thing popped off of the bracket and is somewhere on the ground now. will be asking for a new light to be sent to replace it. other than build quality the lights work great
Decent buy for me, but here’s how my purchase has held up after a month of constant use...
As a new rider, I needed backlights to go with my Canon 2 Backfire Headlights, and these are a good buy to pair with those, especially if you’re on a budget.
Obviously these are not as good a quality buy as the headlights I’ve mentioned earlier, (which kind of makes me wish Backfire would make their own backlights) but that is to be expected for the price.
PRICE - They’re great for the price point, there’s no other way to say it.
BATTERY - They are handy to have if you like to ride in the late evening, with a battery life that would certainly surprise you. On a single charge, these lights lasted me about a week after constant rides that would span over a couple of hours at a time.
INSTALLATION - They are fairly durable, sturdy, and very simple to install. these fit my G2 Galaxy perfect.
FEATURES - Light comes integrated with an auto light function, that turns on automatically when it’s dark enough, (needs to be switched over) and a manual light function, that can be cycled through the single button function. I especially enjoy the automatic brake light sensors that detects when your board is...well...braking.
POWER - Small complaint here, but just a heads up. You can only shut these off by holding down the power button (1s) in MANUAL mode, not auto. So if you need to do so, you’ll have to unscrew the whole light. Again, no biggie.
*DURABILITY - Let me start off by adding this disclaimer. I ride on a lot of different roads (from smooth and easy, to uncomfortable and rough), these lights will have a strong hold when tightened, but for some of my rides, one light seemed to be loosened up by the backscrew on its own after constantly riding on rough terrain. (With 96 mm wheels) This one managed to pop off a couple of times, causing me to lose the washer and screw that comes with it. This happened to me twice in one week. (The only upside to losing the screw and washer is that they were easy items to find and replace at Home Depot).
The other light that didn’t pop off stayed fastened and unscathed, so obviously your results may vary.
Good buy for a bargain price, but be sure to check on them every so often, not just when your about to charge the battery.
I got a pair of the smart lights and one of them worked great but the other one didn’t even turn on.
After only 4 or 5 rides I noticed that one light seemed to have changed to auto instead of manual. The switch was still in manual, I switched it back and forth but couldn't get it out of auto.
Awesome, looks great , works great and for safety... best lights on the market. Lights look like there mini jets ... good job !!!
Works great, very bright!!
I like the lights but found they are not mount-friendly with Backfire G2 and Zealot S because the electric cables are in the way. Modding the mount brackets is possible to avoid interfering with cables. To the reviewer that said, "the lights vibrated loose and fell off" I put a small patch of plastic wrap on the threads and screwed the lights tight and this method is easier to unscrew than using Loctite. The Braking action on lights is a great feature.
Bought these from Backfire. Worked great till I needed to charge them. When I plug them in to charge, 2 lights on the back, one red for charging, one green for when fully charged. Problem is now they will not come on at all once charged. Plug them back in, they turn green after a minute, so the battery is charged on both units (bought a pair) but will refuse to come on, even if holding down the only button for 6 seconds to reset. So now they are just paper weights. I could see if one failed, but they both did, showing the are fundamental flawed and backfire should stop selling them immediately so it will not tarnish their brand.
If your looking to buy these lights for the brake function forget about it. It's so sensitive the smallest bump will cause the brake lights to activate. The brake light pretty much stays on the whole ride. Lol
Why would they sell a light with a video on it that says the light is not a good light?
They both backed completely out and fell off/out (somewhere) the same day!i cant believe it because I tightened them hand tight and made sure I didn't cross thread them. I have no idea where they came off because I didn't hear them come off I think it's a poor design or at least at the very least advise the customer to use some thread locker (like blue loc tight) or some kind of clamping system so that they don't come off because the vibration of the board going on some rough patches seems to have vibrated them loose. It's a shame because I loved them and thought the build quality was great except for that one problem. If anyone else has a pair or these on their board I really advise you put a small strip of duct tape around the seam or maybe just a small drop of Loc-Tight on the main threads. I'd hate for this to happen to someone else, or worse get hit by a car, etc. and killed because someone didn't see you!
Purchased to for My Backfire Zealot and I am very happy with the purchase. Easy to Install
These lights looks amazing and function well. However be careful when mounting them, after putting mine on my board one of my motors will not spin so my board has been unusable. Not sure what happened but I've only been able to ride my board once since mounting the lights. Visibility is great with these though.
This is a great product, however the mounts are not fitted to new school style hardware setups.
It was good i love it wish it was easier to install on the mini which I still can't do but I put it on the ranger x2 and it works great
I purchased cheaper lights for another board but these are worth the extra money. Great visibility and the brake light feature is awesome! Two of them on my Ranger X2 make a great board even better!
This SMART light does everything as described. Initially I bought one but then bought a second one to add to my visibility at night. I couldn't be happier. Highly recommend
