    The Red Zone 8 is fantastic. Light. Super visible. I feel much safer with it on the back of my bike. Cars give me more room. Other bikers ask about it. This is the world’s best rear light. I’d love a saddle mount and better battery life but this light already gets an A +. Well done Niteflux. Super job!

    The good: Works as advertised. Great build quality. Good battery life. Good design that can be mounted in most places.

    The bad: Very little really. Removing the cap (for recharging) can take a little bit of tugging. Lubing as advertised is recommended. But lubing too much may cause the cap to fall off if the light is mounted vertically.

    It would also be useful (but not essential) if the two ends can be programmed to blink independently of each other.

    This is the best taillight I’ve ever owned. Works great night or day. During the night I have to use the lower settings so I don’t blind the drivers. Even during the day, the light is clearly visible with the lower and middle settings. I only use the highest setting at sunrise, sunset, and in the fog. My only complaint is that it’s not very convenient to take off one of the ends to recharge it. But I can’t argue with the performance.

      NiteFlux comment: apply some silicone lube to the end cap and it will become much easier. NiteFlux has tested CRC 808 spray and we are now applying this to all charger endcaps before shipping.

    The BEST bike light I’ve ever owned, and believe me, I’ve been through quite a few. The design is ingenious, so simple, yet adaptable and intuitive.

    So much easier to use than the countless other lights in the same class (although the Red Zone 8 is in a class by itself). I was going to go with a supposedly brighter and higher performance light, but that had a separate ‘light engine’, was more complex, and had more parts to it. This light’s usb charging is easy and convenient!

    Can’t wait to get the White Zone 10 companion light next.

    These lights are simply superb! Not only are they very bright, super easy to attach in multiple locations on the bike, but the actual battery runtimes are much better than those stated. Truly phenomenal!!! Truly the best!!!
    Yes, these lights are a bit on the expensive side, but WELL worth every penny!!!
    Thanks. Hoping for your continued success!!

    I really love my redzone 8 it is a fantastic product. The battery life and brightness of the light has exceeded my expectation. I specifically bought this product for its wide angle field of light. I’m going to go ahead and get the Niteflux Whitezone 10 now.

    Best rear light I’ve ever had. I get more respect and room from cars than I ever have. Day and night. Period. Cons are outlined in other reviews and, in my opinion, are acceptable for my increased safety. Get the Red Zone 8 and you won’t be disappointed.

    I love the Red Zone 8 light. I now have three for all of my bikes. My most recent purchase in 2016 led me to receive the latest 2016 version. It is a remarkable advance. It is more weatherproof, brighter, and clearer. As to the weatherproofing, the light is now encased in hard plastic, which protects it like a tank. It is almost bulletproof, a delight to hold. The high setting is now 100 lumens brighter. It warns, engages, and protects the rider much better now in bright sunshine. At night, the brighter LEDs envelope the biker like a police car’s lights. One feels instantly safer. The clear plastic won’t yellow or fade, with the LEDs noticeably more visible. Once again Niteflux has the best possible lighting. You cannot do better.
