Bontrager Flare 3 Updated Review

It’s been a while since we posted our preliminary Bontrager Flare 3 review.  Honestly, at the time I bought the Flare 3 I thought the Flare 3 would have a hard time being a better taillight than the Planet Bike Superflash it was replacing.  However, the Flare 3 bike taillight has proven to be just as good, and possibly better, than the Superflash.

Bontrager Flare 3 Bike Taillight

The Flare 3 appears just as bright as the Superflash, and in fact, the thing I like best about the Flare versus the Superflash is that the Flare 3 really has good side visibility — in my opinion, a good bit better side visibility than the Superflash.

Like the Superflash, the Flare 3 light it will run for a long, long time on a set of batteries.  My Superflash fell off when the mounting clip failed, and I’m happy to report that the mounting for the Flare 3 seems much more sturdy and has held up very well.

I really don’t have any negative things to say about the Bontrager Flare 3 — it’s been a great, bright taillight that sips batteries slowly, gives great visibility to the rear and sides, and has very sturdy mounting hardware.  I recommend it highly.
