The new TAZ 1500 is the ultimate commuter/trail riding light in the Light & Motion product line. With a burn time of 1 hour 30 minutes on high you can tackle even the most technical of trails at night if that’s where your commute takes you and if you have a more subdued bike path commute, set it on low so you don’t blind your fellow commuters and it will last 6 hours at 350 lumens!
I love the beam pattern on the Taz because it is more like the Seca, giving you a nice spot beam down the trail while also providing a broad beam pattern directly in front of the wheel helping to shed light on the obstacles that are closer and require quick reaction time.
With 1500 lumens, the Taz is the brightest commuter light we make and I challenge you to try and outrun the 1500 lumens; I know I haven’t been able to outrun the sun yet. I throw my my Taz in my pack whenever I’m headed out on a dusk ride because you never know when a mechanical will keep you out after dark and it’s the perfect light for serious night time trail shredding or simple bike path commuting. Wherever your commute takes you be sure you’re covered with the Taz.
