I picked up an Axiom Pulse 60 from Performance over the weekend. It's now my new favorite taillight. I have had quite a few lights at this point, previously my favorite was the Serfas Shield.
This is almost exactly the same light (minus some probably marketing-driven cosmetics on the Serfas), but it's much cheaper at $40 - and it's on sale right now for $35, AND they had a storewide 20% off when I was there.
It's 60 lumens and it's quite visible to the side. I will try to shoot some video soon, though this time of year that involves staying up way past my bedtime.
The only downside to both the Axiom and the Serfas is the clip mount - if you're going to mount to a strap of some kind. In both cases, the mount is just extremely bad. It's the reason I don't have the Serfas anymore - it fell off straps 3 separate times and I lost it on the 3rd time. If you must use that mount, take extra precautions like zip ties or tape or something to make sure it doesn't fall off.
The bike frame mount, OTOH, is probably the best mount I've seen for any light. Extremely rugged and versatile.
