Commuting - Princeton Tec Switchback 2
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I've searched the forums for any reviews on this light, but there are only a couple of mentions of it and no reviews. Has anyone had any experience with it? How does it compare to the cygolite dual cross 300?

None with that product but plenty with Princeton Tec. They make outstanding bulletproof gear at very reasonable prices. Their customer service is great, too.

I have a Switchback 3. Great light. Bright, nice pattern, good run time. Ergonomics and modes are good. Customer service is excellent.
I uses an older Lux 3 LED, so I'd expect an upgrade to a newer emitter in the next 6 months. Li-ion battery, which is really good.
The light and battery mounts work really well but are not overly flexible. Make sure they will work on your bike before buying to avoid a lot of aggravation. cheers.
Great feedback diesel, thanks!

Upon reflection, I would me remiss in not mentioning the following review of the Switchback 2 and many other high-end LED lights:

I have the older Switchback headlamp, primarily used for hiking.....but I use it as a helmet mount for cycling. Love it. As previously mentioned the quality is top notch.
So I just bought the Switchback 2 today ... it rocks! Great quality, super small/light battery and BRIGHT. I have an older Nitehawk 10/5 w halogen and there's no comparison. Well, that's not entirely true, they are comparable on the low setting of the Switchback 2.
I only rode it briefly on the trail, but I would have no problem doing a trail ride with this light.
I highly recommend it.

Good stuff. I was commuting to work today and I've started using the Switchback 3 again in blinking mode since the light is getting a little weaker in the mornings. I was going through some short tunnels and I met an older gentleman who said: "turn that d*&n thing off; you're going to blind me!". Then I knew the light was worth every penny I paid for it.
