There’s not much to say about the Knog Blinder 4V. Having already had the Knog Blinder reviewed in an earlier post, there seemed little point in this light even existing. But that’s not the point: This is an excellent rear light.
Still, it’s really an evolution of the previous model so don’t expect any radical changes.
Ok, there’s the in-line LED layout rather than the 4-square format. But on paper, it’s the same light. So, why should this be a problem?
It’s not. It’s another winner from Knog with great build quality and insightful design. Fancy a stripper? Here’s what you’ll get for your money.
If you are out buying bike lights you’ll soon spot Knog products. Having reviewed the Knog Blinder, I’d liken a pair of Knog lights to a Mac: A PC might be cheaper and do the job just as well, but you’ll want to own the Mac.
So far, design and innovation have set Knog apart in a field of very ‘samey’ bike lights. Out went cheap plastic clips; in came gummi bear silicone wraparounds.
Earlier products have inspired, yet the company’s new Blinder is still a rare sight – and may remain so if its styling is not to cyclists’ liking.
